Re: Max Symbols in Charts option

Hi,

Here is what the documentation says:

"Max Symbols in

Charts

It is possible to specify an upper limit to how many data points that will be

displayed with symbols. The default number is 100. This feature is only useful

in line charts and combo charts, for expressions with both Line and Symbol

checked."

I have run some tests and here is a example to understand the behaviour of this option:

- Create a line chart

- On your expression, check option "Symbol"

- Set the value Max Symbols in Charts to 10

- If you chart contains less than 10 points, you will see the symbols. Otherwise, QlikView will just draw the line.

Regards,

Brice

Re: Max Symbols in Charts option

I was talking about the option present in User preferences/Objects but I guess the behaviour is the same as the QVS setting.
