Visual representations help us to understand data quickly.
When you display information in charts and graphs it is easier to understand and interpret the data. In turn, this makes the business reporting process easier and more meaningful.
PxPlus has had charts available for a number of years. Now, PxPlus 2019 is extending the standard charting capabilities with a new
Charting Object. This object not only provides functionality previously not available but is faster and with less overhead than previous charts. Also, due to its internal design it can be easily extended to provide new chart types and features well into the future.
Best of all, with PxPlus 2019, we also introduced
Smart Charts which simplifies the creation and updating of charts immensely. Using Smart Charts, you can create simply queries against files or tables and then chose how to chart the information. Once complete, simply place the new chart into any Nomads screen without having to write any code.
Highlights of what you will learn:
- How to use the Charting Object
- How to output charts to printers, PDF files and HTML pages
- Step by step guide on using the new Smart Charts
