Vizlib Calendar Properties - Dimensions

TABLE OF CONTENTS


Vizlib Calendar supports one date dimension which needs to have the $timestamp metadata tag assigned to it by the Qlik Sense data model. The Vizlib Calendar Wizard provides you with a list of available date dimensions. Dimensions can be linked to a Measure expression, a Marker (Icon) or a Heatmap to display dimension values using a range of colors


Dimensions


The Field and Label settings for the dimension are listed first (Figure 1). Field text should not contain any symbols e.g. using =[Invoice Date] would be incorrect.

Measure


You can enable Measure expression settings (Figure 2) if you'd like to link the dimension to a measure expression and display a number which relates to a date field you've selected (e.g. a price). You can enter a Measure Expression and choose from Auto, Number, Money, Date, Duration and Custom for your Measure Formatting

Heatmap


Heatmap settings (Figure 4) apply a heatmap to the calendar, with a choice of settings. You can enter your own color selection in the Measure Expression field, while Gradient Color varies the shading according to a date's position in the calendar, and you can choose from a variety of color sets or adding your own.  Sequential Color you can specify two colors and display a range between them. Expression Color lets you enter an expression for a specific color, and you can also choose to Reverse Colors and set a Null Value Color.
