PixelPerfect Stacked Lines Chart


PixelPerfect Stacked Lines Chart

Suppose that you have a Qlik straight table with the columns Year, Month and sales like the following:

Sales by Year and month.png

and you want to obtain a PixelPerfect chart with a line for each year and details by month like the following:

Create a new PixelPerfect template (or open an existing one, as you prefer) and add the source table to the Tables node.


Create a new PixelPerfect chart and select the type Line Stacked. Click on Next 2 times.


Change the name of Serie 1 to 2014 and the name of Serie 2 to 2015. Click on Next.


Select the Series Binding tab and click on 2014 (the first serie). Click on the three dots on the right of Data filter, the Data Filter Collection Editor will open. Click on Add.


Expand the Column Name drop down menu and select the Year field to filter values of that field. In the Value form type 2014. The first serie will contain only values that satisfy this filter.


Open the Argument drop down menu and select the Month column.

Open the Value drop down menu and select the Sales column.


Repeat the process for the 2015 serie. Click on Point Labels on the left column.


Remove the visible flag for both series.


Click on Finish, if necessary adjust the chart dimensions and run a preview.

Nice. Is it also possible to use the max of year and the max of year -1 instead of static values?



No, it is not possible to insert a formula instead of a fixed value.

Like i said - it is not possible to have 2 dimensions which in this case is a main factor.

My suggestion is more flexible as you can create measure for YEAR and measure for YEAR -1 in Qlik and have them dynamic on Qlik side.

Other steps would be similar to Ruggero's with only difference that in my solution you do not have to apply filters in PixelPerfect charts as they will be already filtered by set analysis expression.



PS. Ruggero - do you thinkg you could ask R&D to consider building multidimensional charts in Pixel Perfect (as a feature request)?  That would apply to multidimensional bar charts or stacked bar charts with dynamic stacks etc


Of course, I can ask!

Good Idea to make two measures. But you also have static names for the series.
The use of variables would be nice
