Animation

You can animate a visualization by selecting another data field to be used as a guideline. Your visualizations will essentially be filtered for each unique item from the selected data field. Animation options can be found under the Animation tab when editing or creating a new visualization.

The data column you select in the Field section will determine how the animation is going to be created. Each unique item from this data column will correspond to a frame in the animation.

You can determine how the items from the Field section are going to be cycled from the Order option. Selecting Ascending will make the animation start from the lowest number or first letter, while Descending will do the opposite.

You can add special effects like Fade in or Fade out into your animations by selecting from the Effect option.

The Duration option determines how long each frame will remain in the screen before the data moves onto next item. A higher value for this field mean that each frame will remain on the screen for longer. This parameter is given in milliseconds (1 millisecond = 1 second).

The text in the Label box will be displayed on top of the visualization, and will change with each iteration of the Field items. You can customize this text by modifying the labels. HTML tags, system fields, or any other string can be used in this section to configure the label.

Enabling the Automatically start the animation option will automatically start the animation when a user navigates to the tab containing this visualization. Enabling the Loop the animation option will automatically restart the animation from the first frame once it finishes.
