Stephen Arrowel, Database Administrator: "We are in the process of implementing Firebird solutions at multiple levels in our international organization.

Customizing diagram properties

To build a diagram in Diagram Viewer, you should select the source field(s) to be represented in the diagram first. Only numeric types of fields can be used in the diagram, and each selected field corresponds to a separated diagram series. Fields are selected by checking items in the third combo box from the top in the Database group of the Navigation Bar. If the combo box is empty then either data source is not yet selected or it contains no numeric fields.



Diagram Viewer provides a special control for customizing the diagram properties. This control is located in the Properties group of the Navigation Bar and consists of four separate subgroups:



Contains properties responsible for major diagram appearance:


Chart type - defines a way of how the diagram will be represented: as bars, lines, areas, points, pies, or fast lines
Color each points - if checked, each bar, point, line or sector of the diagram has an individual color; if not checked, all the points are colored red
Show axis - defines if the diagram has the axis and background grid or not



Contains the Labels source property which allows you to specify the field for X-axis labels as well as for diagram point marks .



Contains properties for defining titles for different parts of the diagram:


Header - defines the title appeared on the top of the diagram
X-axis and Y-axis - define the titles for diagram axis
Show marks - defines if the diagram point marks are visible or not



The only Visible property of this subgroup specifies whether the legend rectangle should be represented on the right side of the diagram or not.
