I'm trying to add multiple expressions to my properties.qvpp (as you can do in the default properties), however with little success.
I was wondering if there is a way to add the default Expressions and Dimensions Panels, as you can add the other panels, for example for the Layout default:
<tr class="ToolProperty-Header" avq="panel::Layout.qvpp"><td>Layout</td><th></th></tr> <tr style="display: none"><td colspan="2"></td></tr>
Does anyone know what the Dimensions or Expressions panel is called? Is there a list of all the qvpp files we can get access to?
If this functionality doesn't exist, I want to be able to define a fixed number of expressions and I don't want it to simply be picking from the standard drop down, which is all I'm able to find example of:
<select style="width: 60px" avq="edit:.Chart.Expression.0.0.SimpleFunc"></select> <select style="width: 130px" avq="edit:.Chart.Expression.0.0.SimpleField"></select>
What I'd like to be able to do is use the Expression Builder, but when I have the standard button to show the Expression Builder using the following:
<button class="ToolProperty-DialogButton" avq="dlg:.Chart:Expression.qvpp"> <img alt="" icon="web:style" avq="img:.Chart.Expression.0.0.NumberFormat.FormatType" /> </button>
I get the Expression Builder, but it doesn't seem to save or use the expression I enter. Where should it be writing it to? How do I get my chart to use or even remember the expression I type in?!
Without more detail on the properties.qvpp, we can't make user-configurable extensions, which makes them pretty useless. We certainly aren't going to design an extension per project, so they need to be generic.
For anyone who's got this far, we've built a dynamic word cloud extension that works the same as Wordle, but in iClick. However, until we can build more powerful expressions, it's a bit useless, but we'd be happy to share it once it's configurable via the properties file!
Thanks in advance for your help!
