Does Qlik Support these types of charts and graphs

Hi All,

I have been using Qlikview for a while now.  I know I can build the charts and table he is requesting but does Qlikview support the color coding being done in these reports?  I have not explored that piece yet.  

Thanks,

David

I have figured out the straight table coloring and thanks everyone for that.  The problem I am now faced with is the clients chart looks like this:

And Mind looks like this:

I am trying to figure out how to box in the area with a different color.   You can see my clients is two toned.  Green and a orange.  Is there a way to do that?

Yes, you can color the charts in the way they they requested. Actually, the Straight Table colors resemble the Style "Pyjama Green".

In order to customize Straight Table cells, enable Design Grid, right-click on the cell and select Custom Design from the context menu. You will be able to set any colors from there.

Yes can you do custom color coding in the charts.

Can you please post sample data?

For the table chart, look into 'style' tab of your chart properties.

You can select several predefined styles (and AFAIR also add custom styles).

For the bar chart, it seems like a frame background color on 'Colors' tab of your chart properties should serve your needs.

Apart from the red underlining that should be no problem

In the Style tab, select Plot Area Background Style = Shadow, then in the Colors tab, you can select two different colors - "Background" and "Plot Area".

As a side comment - their requirement looks outdated, today we are minimizing the use of background colors and decorations, trying to focus users attention on the data and not on the embellishments. I'd try and educate the client on the principles of flat design... The same chart would look a lot better on a white background.

Thank you so much Oleg.  I totally agree with you on the colors.  I like to use colors but only in certain ways.  You can do this type of coloring on a pivot table can you?
