5/5starsexcellent addition to the platform. use microflows to populate a reporting object. Add some simple configurations in the modeler and your (dynamic) graphs are up and running
5/5starsAn absolute must for most projects.
Perhaps in the future there will be Z-axes?
4/5starsThis app is very easy to use and can be up and running in minutes. The flot charts have some drawbacks compared to the paid highcharts, but the advantage is that the flot charts are open software and can be adapted. There are some interesting plugins I want to try out to see if I can make them work.
2/5starsIt is very simple and easy to use but there are the following 'bugs':
1. Charts don't refresh when you use the Non free charts
2. Chart labels do overlap, you can't influence the alignment of the labels.
4/5starsVery cool widget, but a few bugs on 188.8.131.52:
- Colors from serie not recognized
- Serie names not recognized (every serie is named serie X instead of the given name)
I was able to fix this via highcharts.js, replaced a few things below: //set serie properties
2/5starsTotally messes up your Java compatibility.
Workaround can be found on this page: https://world.mendix.com/display/refguide5/Troubleshooting
Charts are fine.
4/5starsCharts are good and easy to read, however, like with all chart it takes some implementation time
