Widget Settings

The settings tab (double click on widget and choose settings) allows you to control how a widget appears.  For example, for a bar chart widget you can control whether it appears horizontally or vertically.  Using these setting you can control borders, colours, styles, layout, titles, axis labelling, legends etc.

  • To start with you can leave the majority of the settings as their defaults.  You can start to experiment with the settings easily by making changes and clicking Apply.
  • To show the full list of settings click on the ‘show advanced properties’ option at the bottom of the panel.
  • The ‘Quick Picks’ tab offers some common widget configuration options which can be applied with a single click.
  • We’re continuing to improve the help for widgets and plan to provide much more context sensitive help in due course.
