    How to use DECLARE FIELD DEFINITION ?

    OLEKSANDR NERUSH

      Could you please provide me some working examples for DECLARE FIELD DEFINITION? Actually, i've tested examples from help. But i have no idea how to use GROUPS created by using following definition:

       

      definition_name:

      Declare [Field[s]] Definition [Tagged tag_list ]

      [Parameters parameter_list ]

      Fields field_list

      [Groups group_list ]


      We can create two types of group: drilldown|collection. Question is: how to use it? When i dragged it to chart, error is displayed.

            Hi Alex here is what I found in regards to the Groups syntax - that is reserved for a future feature - where it has been implemented in the back-end, but not yet exposed in the UI. There was a mistake adding that in the sample code in the documentation, and it is being updated. The Groups feature will be available in a  future release - where it will automatically create the collection and cyclic groups for those specified fields.

             

            Hope this helps.
