How to use DECLARE FIELD DEFINITION ?

Could you please provide me some working examples for DECLARE FIELD DEFINITION? Actually, i've tested examples from help. But i have no idea how to use GROUPS created by using following definition:

definition_name:

Declare [Field] Definition [Tagged tag_list ]

[Parameters parameter_list ]

Fields field_list

[Groups group_list ]


We can create two types of group: drilldown|collection. Question is: how to use it? When i dragged it to chart, error is displayed.

Re: How to use DECLARE FIELD DEFINITION ?

Hi Alex here is what I found in regards to the Groups syntax - that is reserved for a future feature - where it has been implemented in the back-end, but not yet exposed in the UI. There was a mistake adding that in the sample code in the documentation, and it is being updated. The Groups feature will be available in a  future release - where it will automatically create the collection and cyclic groups for those specified fields.

Hope this helps.
