Vizlib Heatmap Properties - Data, Sorting and Data Handling

When you're working with the data in Vizlib Heatmap, you can apply changes in the Data, Sorting and Data Handling settings. 


Data - Dimensions and Measures

The Data section contains settings for the dimensions and measures in the heatmap. 

Vizlib Heatmap supports two dimensions, one for the X Axis and one for the Y Axis (Figure 1). You can choose to Include null values, set a Limitation from the dropdown (you can choose between a a fixed number (e.g. top 10 values only), an exact value and a relative value (e.g. show the top 50% of results). You can also add alternative dimensions by clicking Add alternative. There's more information about alternative dimensions in the Best Practice article.

Vizlib Heatmap also supports two measures (Figure 2), the first controls the color and the second is displayed as you hover over the heatmap. You can choose to enable Master measure formatting which means that formatting properties will be inherited from the master item used by the measure, and select a Number formatting option.
