Description django 2002-08-12 18:43:01 UTC
Here is a two level list of enhancements to common X-Y charts which I find very
useful in my day to day practice (but which are a p.i.d.a to produce). The
important trick will be to realize them without creating intermediate data
ranges or sheets and to keep the link with the source data alive. 

First level (to allow displaying 5 variables: x and y plus three illustrators)
1. Getting (text) labels for the points from a first range range (including text
2. Getting colors for the points from a second range.
3. Getting point symbol types from a third range.

Second level (automatic series splitting) to add information about (up to two)
more variables
1. Split a data range automatically into series according to up to two
categorical variables (ranges) with n and m levels respectively. Create either:
 a) a panel of n X-Y graphs (if there is only one categorizing variable)
 b) a panel of nxm X-Y graphs if there are two.
Instead of panels permit also overlays.

Comment 10 IngridvdM 2006-11-24 12:32:23 UTC
Hm, this issue does consist of several different feature request. Maybe someone
could be so kind and split it up.
- datapoint labels from cell range
- datapoint color from cell range
- datapoint symbols types from cell range

Not sure what is the second level request about?
