The Bullet Chart is a visualization that lets you quickly view values against comparative values.
The Bullet Chart Visualization configuration is broken out into six steps:
A symbolic name used to represent this Visualization. This is the name that will show up in choosers when adding a Visualization to a Page.
Set the height of each chart in pixels.
The Value Field is used to retrieve the value of the chart from the data. It affects the size of the main bar of the chart and reflects the actual value of the chart.
Choose a color formatter for the value bar. See Color Formatter for more details.
Configure what minimum value will be shown on the axis of the chart.
Configure what maximum value will be shown on the axis of the chart.
When the min or max values are set to the Calculated setting, this option (when set to Yes) will set the minimum and maximum value on each chart to the minimum and maximum value found across the entire data set.
Setting this to Yes will allow decimal values on the axis values. Setting this to No is useful when your data should never represent partial values, like ticket counts.
Setting this to Yes will allow for custom axis tick intervals to be set. This is useful when wanting to make the axis values whole numbers instead of decimals.
This is visible when “Override Axis Interval” is set to Yes. Setting this to a value of 1 will ensure only whole numbers are used. A value of 5 will make each axis tick a multiple of 5.
The Target Value shows the expected goal value of the chart. Its purpose is to quickly show comparative measures.
Set a Static or Field value for each chart.
A static number that will be used on all of the charts as the target.
Choose a color formatter for the target indicator. See Color Formatter for more details.
Configure the size of the target indicator.
Set the amount of space devoted to label rendering.
Set a Static or Field value for each primary label.
This is rarely used on the primary label.
Setting this to Yes will enable/show configuration for secondary labels on the charts.
Set a Static or Field value for each secondary label when enabled.
This is often used on secondary labels to show a unit of measure for the axis.
Configure a Static or Derived Text Renderer for the axis labels. For more information see Text Renderer.
This step configures how the items in the Bullet Chart are sorted.
Select an attribute from the underlying dataset, whose values will be used to determine the sort.
Controls how the values will be sorted.
Choose a color formatter for the chart background. Configuring ranges of color will render over this background color. See Color Formatter for more details.
Configure qualitative ranges of color to help depict different meanings of values.
Use to add a new comparative range definition and to delete a range from the list.
Configure a Static or Derived color for each entry. See Color Formatter for more details.
Configure a Static or From Field value for the min and max range.
Optionally add a tooltip that will be shown on mouse hover over the range area.
This step previews the end result based on the choices you made.
