In this blog post we will take a closer look at some best practice recommendations to optimize your chart visualizations when using Bar charts. Using NetCharts, the style and look of each chart type such as Bar charts can be customized using our Chart Definition Laungauge (CDL) and its functionality controlled.
While every element of charts produced by NetCharts can be customized and controlled, with countless combinations allowing you to build a chart exactly the way you want, the chart itself consists of many parts that are shared and used across the different chart types.
By default the popup labels (Dwell or Active Label) for both Bars and Lines are enabled when you hover over them in a Combo chart. However, you might have a particular requirement where you need to switch off the Active Labels for the Bars but need the Active Labels to remain for the Line data points.
You may have read about CDL on our site and in the documentation and wondered what it is and stands for. Our Chart Definition Language or CDL is a collection of plain text parameters that describe a chart.
