Intersection

On this question, I have a question

 

https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Discussions/Cells-color/m-p/351410#M64255

 

In particular, why is the case that: 

  • Column rules usually take precedence over row rules, unless the row rule explicitly has its "override column rules" checkbox checked.

Does this mean that the column background coloration has precedence over that of the coloration for a row when the background color of a column intersects that of a row?

What tools can we simulate with rows intersecting columns?

Hi @Inactive User 

 

Ok let me explain with an example

 

Lets i need to output like

atcodedog05_0-1605943666540.png

And formatting requirement is color not met >0 as red and 0 as green. And total row should be blue.

 

With override output looks like this (i,e row is given priority)

Without override output looks like this (i,e column is given priority)

First one would be what i want. So basically it totaly depends on whats the requirement.

 

Hope i was able to clear some things

 

Hope this helps 🙂

Thanks for the example! I'm just curious to know also on 

 

  • Column rules usually take precedence over row rules, unless the row rule explicitly has its "override column rules" checkbox checked.

Why is this?

 

And Does this mean that the column background coloration has precedence over that of the coloration for a row when the background color of a column intersects that of a row?

Hi @Inactive User 

 

ok for basically cell with value 4 has 2 rules on it.

1. all cells in the Not met should be colored red (default)

2. all cells in row with recordID total will be colored blue.

 

My default column rule will be applied thats preset. So it will be colored red.

 

But we want it to be colored blue we want the row rule to take precedence. And cell to be coloured blue.

Hence we set row rule should overrivde column rule.

 

There are some scenario where you might want way around. There column rule should precedence over column.
