I recently finished putting together a Pediatric Growth Chart which was a really fun exercise. It’s a rather unusual and complex looking chart but is actually possible to do using simple CDL. In this blog I thought I’d share how one particular chart feature made it possible.
In this example I will go over some simple tips of what’s required to use color area fills to display warning zones.
You may have the requirement to display the labels in the chart in a certain language. This is actually possible to do. Here’s a quick tip with a couple simple steps of how to display the text in another language.
One great feature that isn’t very obvious is the capability of using translucent colors. Using transparent colors in certain ways can easily improve the styling of your chart. You could use this feature on not only the colors of the bars, pie slices or lines, but also on fonts, fill colors and much more.
This month we will take a closer look at how the “Labor Market in Balance” XY chart was put together.
