C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikView Documentation\Reference Manual

copied from Qlik reference manual, version 11, page 600

A chart can display one or more dimensions. The upper limit depends on the actual chart type, the complexity

of the data and the available memory. Pie, line and scatter charts can display a maximum of two

dimensions, bar, block and grid charts three. Radar charts can only display a single dimension, and gauge

charts use no dimensions at all. A funnel chart typically has one to three dimensions. Further dimensions are

ignored.

Why do you need to know the max limit? Are you experiencing problems with a specific chart?

The nature of a chart usually gives an indication of what a suitable setup is. For example a Gauge shows a measure, so naturally it makes no sense to stretch the calculation over dimensional values. A bar chart shows measures for different dimensional values, so naturally it requires a dimension. Multiple dimensions in a bar chart makes it more cluttered and harder to use, so two dimensions usually is a good limit.

The way you set up a chart, considering dimensions and expressions, will lead to different amount of memory usage and calculation requirements. The number of dimensions that you add can therefore impact the usability of a chart object, and make the object better or worse in terms of usability.
