Could we please change the Interactive Chart tool, to:
recognize when upstream types have changed and reconfigure (in the case of numerical types marked as string)
For line charts - sort the values in order of the X value
Sample Flow - derivation of challenge 201:
- The first interactive chart on this flow has no sorting at all performed by the charting tool - this may be due to the fact that the X & Y axes are in string fields. Generally line charts would attempt to sort both the axes and the values (where the values should order according to the X axis). Please can you add a default sort anyway?
- If you then change the data types on these fields to be numeric - the charting tool still does not sort them until you reconfigure the tool manually - REquest: please can you get the tool to remember the data types, so that it can prompt you; or even better just reconfigure?
(image looks identical after retyping the fields)
- When you do a manual reconfigure of the tool after changing the types - the axes are sorted, but the values are not - so you end up with a chart that crosses back and forth. Generally line charts are ordered in the order of the X Axis for the values
- Request: Please sort values on the line chart automatically in order of the X value?
NOTE: Finally got the outcome needed by forcing the sort before the interactive chart tool
