A sparkline visualization is a small simplified (without axes) version of a chart used in-line with text or as a complement to other charts and outputs. They can only show one series at a time. As with most other visualizations in Displayr, they can take either variables or tables as their input. In this example, we'll go from a table like this:
To sparkline charts, like these - demonstrating in order the different types available along with where they are found in the menu:
A single-series table or variable to use in the creation of the sparkline.
Method 1 - Via the visualization menu
1. Go to Visualization > [path of specific sparkline above].
2. In the object inspector on the right, and under DATA SOURCE > Output in 'Pages' or Variables select the table or variables you want to base the sparkline on.
Method 2 - From an existing table
1. With the table selected, in the object inspector, go to Visualization > [path of specific sparkline above].
Important information about editing captions:
Visualization caption edits may not be retained when a visualization with a nested table is switched back to table. Normally, this only occurs when you double-click the caption and edit the text directly. As a workaround, we recommend using Properties > CAPTION > Edit caption to edit your captions.
You can also change the type of sparkline from the Object Inspector Visualization menu.
To add end points to a sparkline you've already created, (not available for box and column types), check Chart > Show end points and END LABELS > Show end labels > Next to points.
