Now let’s jump into learning the detailed process of using the Line Chart widget.
To Insert Widget
By clicking the widget, you will be able to access three blocks with different settings: Content, Style, and Advanced.
Now in the Content tab, there are three sections. In the Content tab here you can adjust the needed settings that define the widget’s content.
Under the Content tab, you will find 3 sections. They are Line Chart, Additional, and Animation.
The first section here is the Line Chart section, Here you will be able to change the Chart Height. You can add Label Values. You can add as many as items you want to add just by clicking on the Add Item button.
Label Values: Label values in a Chart refer to the values displayed on or near each bar in the chart. These values represent the height or length of the bars and provide a way to compare and visualize data. Labels can be displayed directly on the bars themselves, or next to them, and can be formatted to show specific units of measurement, such as dollars, percent, etc. The use of label values helps to provide context and understanding for the data being displayed in the chart.
Here you can Write multiple labels with a Comma ( , ) Separator. Example: January, February, March, etc.
When you will click on any Item, there you will find Content and Style options. The Content option allows you to add the Label Text and Data.
On the other hand, the other option here is the Style option. This allows you to Change the Background Color, Background Hover Color, Border Color, and Hover Border Color.
Now the next section is the Additional section. Here you can enable/disable X and Y axes Labels and Grid Lines. If you want to show the tooltip, then you can enable that option. Otherwise, disable it.
At the bottom of this section, you will find an option named Legend. For those who are not familiar with the term called Legend, we will describe first what is Legend in a Chart.
Legend: A Legend in a bar chart is a visual element that explains what each color or pattern in the chart represents.
It is typically located outside of the main chart area and maps the elements in the chart (such as bars, lines, or markers) to a corresponding description or label. The legend can be used to distinguish between different data series, variables, or categories in the chart. It helps to provide clarity and context to the chart, making it easier for the viewer to understand and interpret the data.
Here you may enable/disable the Show Legend option and Change the Legend’s position. You can also Reverse the Legend just by enabling the Reverse option.
In the Animation section, you can select the Animation Type. You can choose from Linear, Ease in Cubic, Ease in Cric, and Ease in Bounce options. You may also adjust the Animation Duration according to your choice.
Now we move to the Style tab. Here you will find all the styling options. In this Style tab, there are 4 sections. They are Chart, Legend, Labels, and Tooltip.
Firstly in the Chart section, you will be able to adjust the padding of the Line Chart. You can change X and Y axes Grid Colors.
You may adjust the Line Border Width, Line Tension, and Point Border Width. You can also select the Point Styles from here.
Line Tension: A line chart is a graphical representation of data that uses lines to connect individual data points. Line Tension is a property of a line chart that determines how the line is drawn between data points. The line tension can be used to control the appearance of a line chart and can be used to create different visual effects.
In the Legend section. Here you are allowed to change the Legend’s Text Color, Box-Height, Bar-Width, etc.
The next section is the Labels section. Here you can style your Line Chart’s Label by adjusting its Padding. Changing the X and Y axes Color and Typography.
The last section is the Tooltip section. In this section, you may set the Alignment of the Tooltip. You can Style the Tooltip by changing the Color, Typography, Background Color & other aspects as per your needs.
Once you made all the changes in the style tab your Line Chart will look Fantastic.
