Launch URL based on datapoint

Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm currently looking into this product, however I can't find out how to

launch a URL based on a data point clicked on by the user.

In our current application when the user clicks onto one of the data points

displayed on the chart, a URL is created that contains a parameter based on

the datapoint selected and uses this to launch a 'details screen' providing

details of the point selected.

Is this possible with your product?

Thanks

You can use "variables" in the parameters of your sub-report to specify 

information particular to the element that was clicked:

a.. Variables can be accessed using the % following the variable you want to

include:

l Shows X-Axis Legend.

k Shows X-Axis Key Legend.

s Shows Series Legend.

S Shows the Series Index.

x Shows XValue (XY charts, when they were set with X values).

i Shows IniValues (Gantt).

v Shows Data Value.

v <n> For types that require more than one series, these are replaced by the

value of each one. (n represents an index).

t Series Total (Sum of all points in this series).

p Percentage of total this point represents (Pie).

T Point Total (Sum of all series for this point).

P Percentage of total this series represents (Used in stacked charts).

X displays the marker X value for any chart type including those that do not

support X values such as bar.

N Shows the index for the point.

L Shows the Text property of the Point object.

Thanks, but I'm not sure I understand.

What I want to do is to be able to click on a plotted data point and be able

to launch a new URL like some kind of "drill down" function.

The %x {Shows XValue (XY charts, when they were set with X values).} increments through the x-values if used multiple times

.URLParamMask="&BeginningDate=%x&EndingDate=%x"

The result is &BeginningDate=02/22/2007&EndingDate=02/23/2007

We are running v6.2

This is by design and it is done to allow you to pass the current point and the next. This is useful for connected chart types such as lines and area where you can click between two points.
