Vizlib Calendar Properties - Dimensions, Measure, Heatmap


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


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.

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

Enabling the Marker settings (Figure 3) allow you to display an Icon in the top right corner of a cell of a date field you've selected. You can click the icon to select a new one, set the symbol Size, customize the icon Color, and change the Icon Opacity

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.
