Chart: Adding in a Chart (Graph) into a form that appears when you enter data into the Event Form, or just in the Athlete History
You can select to automatically chart variables to show on the Athlete History page (shown in the image in the step below).
To add a chart to appear in the actual event form when you enter data into the form, or on the athlete history page, click on Chart (as shown in the step below)
The image here shows the charts that have been set to appear on data entry, AND the fields that have been selected to chart by default in the advanced properties section for that field (
Sum of 8 was selected to chart y default on the advanced properties for that field. However, the radar chart and the body weight and skinfolds charts were both set up as charts in the form to show during data entry. By default these charts will always show in the athlete history page (as shown here). The ONLY time they will not show is if there is no data entered for that event yet as you must have two events entered before the graph appears.
To Add a graph to appear in the actual form and/or in the athlete history page, click on "Chart" at the top of the Questions section on the Form Builder.
Name the field, Add in a Title and set the width and height (it will default to 450 by 250 pixels- the size of the graph by default charts that you can select for the advanced properties for the graph by default)
Show on Data entry: allows you to specify whether you want the chart to appear in the actual data entry page when you enter data into the form. If it is NOT ticked the chart will appear on the athlete history only.
Lock Axes: If you select more than one field to appear in the graph, do you want the vertical axes (Y-axis) to display the same axes range, or to automatically show a range based on the results
For this example, we are graphing weight and sum of skinfolds, which will be within a range of 50 to 90 for weight and about the same for sum of skinfolds. For this example we want the data to appear on the same axes, so Lock Axes would be set to Yes. If you were graphing sum of skinfolds and 20m sprint time, you would not want to lock the axes because sum of skinfolds would be in 50ish range and above range and 20m time would be at 4-5. You would set the Lock Axes to No
One Axes: Allows you to specify whether you want one or more axis. The example in the images in the steps below show a graph with one Axes showing and two Axes showing.
The Example here shows Show on Data Entry= Not ticked, Lock Axes =No, One Axes=Yes
Once you select whether you want the chart to show or now, and the size of it, select the Type of Chart that you want to appear: The step here shows the History Chart options
If you select the History chart option, you have different chart types that you can use to display your data. The Line, Bar, Dot, Area and Spline are all displayed in the image in the step below. Just set the Type on the variables that you select to the correct chart that best displays the data. Remember to ALWAYS enter in some test data into the form on the application (and into the event fields in the form that you are graphing) and check that is displays well on your application.
Example History Chart Options: #1-Line, #2-Bar, #3-Dot, #4-Area and #5-Spline
Value Charts: allow you to have a Line, Bar, Dot, Area and Spline graph, and set Radar Charts
The image in the step below profiles the different chart types for the Value Charts.
To set up you Value chart, select the Event Form that you want to chart fields from, and then place a tick beside the fields that you want to display in the value chart. Example graphs are shown in the step below.
Remember to ALWAYS enter in some test data into the form on the application (and into the event fields in the form that you are graphing) and check that is displays well on your application.
Example Value Chart Options: #1-Line, #2-Bar, #3-Dot, #4-Area and #5-Spline
Value Chart: Radar Charts allows you to have a radar chart graphing multiple variables from one event form
The example here shows that we are going to graph multiple skinfold fields on a Value Chart that is set to a Radar Chart. To set up a radar chart, select the Event form that you want to chart the fields from and then ensure a tick is placed beside the variables. For this example we have selected to graph the skinfolds, so the One Axes and Lock axes have both been set to Yes. However, if you were charting weight and biceps, then you would want separate Axes.
