Infochart question and conditional formatting

Hello! I am brand new at using Design Studio 1.6. I am a former Dashboards (Xcelsius) user.

I see for Infocharts, there is conditional formatting but not anything like alerts as Xcelsius offered. The conditional formatting can be activated when using a BEx query, I understand. Is that correct? Is there any way to show alerts on a chart? I will be using Universe queries for my applications.

Thanks!

    You can use the Chart component (not the InfoChart) and it will offer conditional formatting properties against the universe

    I am surprised why conditional formatting is skipped in INFOCHARTS. I was positioning all my dashboards using infocharts and now I see this feature not supported yet 😔

    Hi !

    I did something similar: Using CSS, I changed the colors of the graph. Pretty useful when you want all of them to have the same pattern.

    Now, if you want to change the colors based on something else that can be dynamic, I encourage you to have a look at my post : Generate CSS code dynamically in Design Studio with the Community Package

    I guess you could read your data, determine which colors you want to apply, and determine the which bar using some of the attributes.
