Loading data into a Pie Chart

Loading data into a Pie Chart


Hi there! 

I'm trying to follow your 12th tutorial in which you explain how a Pie Chart can be set up on a Dashboard. 

I'm running into two main difficulties:

1) In your video, you mention that a local variable has to be set and that this variable should be a Record List of DataPoints. I do not have the option in my project to make my local variable a Record List. I've gotten it right to make it a list of DataPoints, but why do I not have a data type called 'Record List'?

2) Then, in your video, you explain that in the preparation screen, we should drag in an action from the 'Charts' section in the Logic tab. We should drag in DataPoint_init. I do not, however, see that particular action in my project -- I only see DataPoint_GetClicked, AdvancedFormat_Init, XAxisFormat_init, YAxisFormat_init, ChartFormat_init. Where can I find DataPoint_init?

Thank you very much for your help.



Hi Simone,

1) Though the SourceDataPoinList input parameter of the PieChart is of type DataPoint Record List, you can also assign it a DataPoint List - the platform will convert it for you.

2) DataPoint_Init is an action in the Charts eSpace. You can reference it like any other action from another eSpace.
