Shrinking (Zoom out) a chart with time dimension

Hi,

I have a price overview as chart which can go over quite a long period.

It should only show a trend for the price 'evolution'.

Without qlik an old version looks like this:

I try to recreate this in Qlik now.

Beside the problem how to create an area-range I have a more severe problem.

How can I zoom out to show all values on the x axis?

I don't want to loose datapoint, just change the axis-range.

Basically I want to show the chart which is used inside the navigation.

See the screenshot:

Can I transform this dimension axis to achive my goal?

Re: Shrinking (Zoom out) a chart with time dimension

u can create a dimesion with year it wil gives u exact values with data points.

or even try with week as dimension.

i think ur trying wih dates

its seems too clumsy so...it will be tricky to get the exact.

I dunno if i tried it correct, but if I put Year() around my dimension, then the measures are calculated by the data of the whole year.

I don't want to change the granularity from the dimension itself, i just need to set the min and max for the axis.

(as one can do this to the y axis).

Adding YEAR or MONTH around your time dimension will reduce the granularity.

Qlik natively scrolls when the dimension is too long.

You could look for an extension to add a chart that doesn't scroll. D3 Visualization library is very good.

Ok, thanks.

I hoped qlik has some native way to do so.
