Bubble Chart Specific Parameters

Syntax: BubbleChart=setZScale | zAutoScaleOff | maxDiameter | fillBubbles | crossAxes | xCrossVal | yCrossVal

Parameter Value Type Description
setZScale double A multiplier used to adjust how the y2/z values becomes radius so that the
chart looks good.  Autoscale usually does a good job of this though
zAutoScaleOff anything When you use this parameter it turns
of the zScale autoscaling.  In other words it allows the user to set the
z scale multiplier instead of doing this automatically.  Probably
shouldn't be used unless you are having a problem with the radius of the
bubbles.
maxDiameter integer This is the user input to set the maximum
diameter of the bubbles in pixels.  Again, this is only needed if you
are having a problem with the size of the bubbles
fillBubbles true Just draws filled bubbles instead of
just outlines
crossAxes true Tells the chart whether to use x/y axes
on the sides of the chart or have them cross inside the chart giving
your 4 quadrants instead of just 1
xCrossVal double The x value at which the y axis will cross
the x axis, if crossAxes = true
yCrossVal double Similar to xCrossVal

Bubble Chart - Step by Step

watermarkColor color for hSpeedoApp, determines the color of the history watermark

Polar Chart Specific Parameters

Polar charts can use any general applet or servlet parameters, as well as any shared parameters. Polar charts draw a radial line describing the values of a fixed number of categories.

The following table contains parameters only used by polar charts. Other chart types ignore these parameters

Syntax: Polar=manualSpoking|numSpokes

Parameter Value Type Description
manualSpoking boolean If defined, you are responsible for determining how many "spokes" should be drawn in this chart's axis representation
numSpokes integer The number of spokes in this chart's Axis system (default 4)

Axis Parameters (X, Y, aux)

The following tables contain parameters for adjusting axes. Line, area, bar, and their derivatives use these parameters. Axis parameters consist of a set of parameters and an option list. The option list is contained in a separate table.

If you're modifying an X Axis (usually on the top or bottom of a chart), use xAxisParameterName instead of yAxisParameterName. X Axes are on the left and right for Horizontal Bar Type charts. X axes can be on the top or bottom of a chart. Speedo and Polar charts have a single Axis, which is a Y Axis.

If you're modifying an Auxiliary Y Axis (charts that have left and right axes, for example), use auxAxisParameterName instead of yAxisParameterName.

Syntax: Yaxis=yAxisTitle| yAxisTitleFont| yAxisTitleColor| yAxisLabels| yAxisLabelFont| yAxisLabelColor| yAxisLabelAngle| yAxisLabelFormat| yAxisLabelPrecision| yAxisLineColor| yAxisTickColor| yAxisGridColor| yAxisColor| yAxisTickLength| yAxisMinTickLength| yAxisStart| yAxisEnd| yAxisLabelCount| yAxisTickCount| yAxisMinTickCount| yAxisGridTickCount

Parameter Value Type Description
yAxisTitle string Y Axis title
yAxisTitleFont font Y Axis title font
yAxisTitleColor color Y Axis title color
xAxisLabels list A comma separated list of user-defined labels for this Axis. This is only effective for certain types of chart (BarChart derivatives, LabelLineChart, Area charts) that use a LabelAxis. By default, LabelAxis is only used for X axes.
yAxisLabelFont font use this font for Y axis labels (default TimesRoman 12pt)
yAxisLabelColor color Y axis labels in this color (default black)
yAxisLabelAngle integer label rotation in degrees (default 0). Note: rotations of 0 and 90 degrees will be the most readable
yAxisLabelAngle integer label rotation in degrees (default 0)
yAxisLabelFormat 0:default, 1:Comma, 2:European (default 0) Note: by default, charts will automatically localize formats based on the Java Virtual Machine running the chart.
yAxisLabelPrecision integer maximum number of digits past the decimal point to display
yAxisLineColor color Y axis line color (default black)
yAxisTickColor color Y axis tick mark color (default black)
yAxisGridColor color Y axis grid line color (default black)
yAxisColor color sets Y axis grids, ticks, lines and labels to the same color
yAxisTickLength integer number of pixels long for Y axis tick marks
yAxisMinTickLength integer number of pixels long for Y axis minor tick marks
yAxisStart double starting value on axis. By default, axes automatically determine a starting and ending value. By setting this value, you can give the axis a default minimum value. If the Axis is set to noAutoScale, this value will be used directly. Otherwise, this value may be adjusted slightly to yield better looking labels. For example, if you set yAxisStart to 0.01, the chart may decide to round the value down to 0.0 to create even axis increments.
yAxisEnd double ending value on axis. By default, axes automatically determine a starting and ending value. By setting this value, you can give the axis a default maximum value. If the Axis is set to noAutoScale, this value will be used directly. Otherwise, this value may be adjusted slightly to yield better looking labels. For example, if you set yAxisStart to 9.99, the chart may decide to round the value up to 10.0 to create even axis increments.
yAxisLabelCount integer how many labels on a manually scaled axis
yAxisTickCount integer how many tick marks on a manually scaled axis
yAxisMinTickCount integer how many minor tick marks on a manually scaled axis
yAxisGridCount integer how many grid lines on a manually scaled axis

Axis Option Lists

The following lists include various options for adjusting the look of an X or Y axis. Use these parameters in a list.

Syntax: Xaxisoption=noautoScale,rotateTitle, logScaling, lineOff, tickOff, minTickOn, labelsOff, gridOn ,topAxis

Syntax: Yaxisoption=noautoScale, rotateTitle, logScaling, lineOff, tickOff, minTickOn, labelsOff, gridOn , rightAxis

Example: xAxisOptions=gridOff,tickOff,lineOn

Options

Description

noAutoScale axis scale defined in applet parameters
rotateTitle "true" if vertical axis title should be parallel with axis
logScaling "true" if axis should use log scaling
lineOff axis line is invisible
tickOff major tick marks are invisible
minTickOn minor tick marks are visible
labelsOff axis labels are invisible
gridOn grid lines are visible
rightAxis this axis goes on the right (For Yaxisoption)
topAxis this axis goes on the top (for Xaxisoption)

 

Dataset Specification

Datasets can vary a great deal from chart to chart. Some kinds of charts only use Y values, others use both X and Y values. Some charts use a color to represent an entire dataset (bar charts, line graphs), and some use a color for each data value (pie charts, individual bar charts). In general, every chart must define a list of numbers for Y data. Charts that don't define this data will use an internally generated fake dataset, which is pretty useless. For additional ways to define data, see the table on URL datasets. The code column is an abbreviated substitute for the dataset names (lists) for quick entry.The formatis XX## where XX is a two character code and ## is a two digit dataset number.

Syntax: Dataset=set|dataset?xValues|dataset?yValues|dataset?y2Values|dataset?xyValues| dataset?dateValues|dataset?Name|dataset?Labels|dataset?Color|dataset?Colors| 
dataset?Image|dataset?LineWidth|dataset?LabelFont|dataset?LabelColor|dataset?Links| dataset?xURL|dataset?yURL|dataset?Type|dataset?URLLabels

URL Dataset Parameters

These applets include a mechanism to retrieve data from a valid URL. For applets, this URL must be on the same host the applet came from. To get around this restriction, you'll have to sign your applets and request permission using the requisite security classes.

Data URLs can be files, but more often, they point to CGIs or ASPs that generate data dynamically. This mechanism lets you keep your overall chart definition unchanged while modifying the data to meet your requirements.

Applets can also use the networkInterval parameter to re-read data from the URL, updating the chart as necessary.

Syntax: URLdata=URLDataBlock|URLXYDataRows|URLXYDataColumns|networkInterval|customDatasetHandler

URL Dataset Parameters (available datasets 0 through 39) Value Type Description
URLDataBlock URL URL for a file of comma separated Y values. Each line in this file is assumed to be a unique dataset.
URLXYDataRows URL URL for a file of comma separated XY pairs arranged into rows. Each row represents a single dataset, with values arranged as x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, y3... 
URLXYDataColumns URL URL for a file of comma separated XY pairs arranged into columns. This file must contain a single value as the first line of the file, specifying the number of observations (rows) in the file. The first two columns are dataset 1, the second two columns are dataset 2, etc.
networkInterval integer Number of seconds to wait before re-reading URL datasets
customDatasetHandler string In the case of DateAxis, this is the URL for a data file that contains columnar Date information

Date Chart Parameters

These parameters are used by all time-oriented data, such as dateLineApp and dateAreaApp. This includes financial chart styles, such as finComboApp and hiLoCloseApp, which extend DateStreamReader further to refine the way these applets and servlets interpret blocks of data.

The following list contains general charting options for Time/Date X axes, such as those used for dateLineApp.class and dateAreaApp.class, as well as financial chart types like stickApp.class and hiLoCloseApp.class.

Syntax: DateParams=startData|endData|inputDateFormat|incrementalDataURL
Parameter Type Effect
startData String Ignore any data earlier than this time/date. Note: this string is passed into Java's "Date" class to be translated into a machine independent time stamp. Many time-stamp formats will work. If you need to use a specific input format, see the Date Format section below.
endData String Ignore any data later than this time/date. Note: this string is passed into Java's "Date" class to be translated into a machine independent time stamp. Many time-stamp formats will work. If you need to use a specific input format, see the Date Format section below.
inputDateFormat String Use this pattern to read any incoming data. For more information on how to construct this string, see the Date Format section below.
incrementalDataURL URL A URL to poll for additional data points. Date oriented charts read initial data from the URL or file specified in "customDatasetHandler". Subsequent observations can be added to applets by polling the URL specified in this parameter. This URL will be checked each networkInterval.

Date Axis Parameters

The following list contains options for Time/Date X axes, such as those used for dateLineApp.class and dateAreaApp.class, as well as financial chart types like stickApp.class and hiLoCloseApp.class.

Syntax: DateAxis=startDate|endDate|axisDateFormat|axisSecondaryDateFormat|scalingType

DateAxis Parameters Type Effect
startDate string time/date for axis starting value. Note: this string is passed into Java's "Date" class to be translated into a machine independent time stamp. Many time-stamp formats will work. If you need to use a specific input format, see the Date Format section below.
endDate string time/date for axis ending value
axisDateFormat string By default, DateAxis selects an appropriate labelling type based on your time range and your locale. Your applets will automatically use, for example, Japanese month names for browsers in Japan, and German month names for browsers in Germany. Similarly, applets might choose a yy/mm label for one locale, and mm/yy for another locale. This parameter lets you override the axis labels to use your specific formatting instructions. See the Date Format section below for more information on how to use the formatting patterns.
axisSecondaryDateFormat string Some DateAxes use a primary and secondary format to highlight important boundaries, like years or hours. This parameter lets you set the date or timestamp format for one of these boundaries. See the Date Format section below for more information on how to use the formatting patterns.
scalingType integer
1 scale by seconds
2 scale by minutes
3 scale by hours
4 scale by days
5 scale by weeks
6 scale by months
7 scale by years

Date Format Patterns

Time and Date oriented charts raise some interesting challenges. Input time stamps may be in a variety of languages, and a variety of formats. Axis labels might contain information as coarse as era (e.g. BC/AD) or as fine as milliseconds. Although KavaChart attempts to automate as many of these tasks as possible, you may need to fine-tune date handling by using a date format string. These strings are used in the following parameters: inputDateFormat, axisDateFormat, axisSecondaryDateFormat, and (in applets) dwellLabelDateFormat. These parameters take a pattern string like "MMM-yyyy" to specify a date format like "January-2001". Each pattern string contains the desired field specifiers along with additional text you might want to add. This table describes the available fields:
Field Full Form Short Form
Year yyyy (4 digits) yy (2 digits)
Month MMM (name) MM (2 digits), M (1 or 2 digits)
Day of week EEEE EE
Day of Month dd (2 digits) d (1 or 2 digits)
Hour (1-12) hh (2 digits) h (1 or 2 digits)
Hour (0-23) HH (2 digits) H (1 or 2 digits)
Hour (0-11) kk (2 digits) k (1 or 2 digits)
Hour (1-24) KK (2 digits) K (1 or 2 digits)
Minute mm None
Second ss None
Millisecond SSS None
AM/PM a None
Time Zone zzzz zz
Day of Week in Month F (e.g. 2nd Tuesday) None
Day in year DDD (3 digits) D (1, 2, or 3 digits)
Era G (e.g. BC or AD) None

The actual string values for each format are determined by locale and the time being formatted.
