📝 Note: This is a premium feature of Visualizer: Charts and Graphs, which you can get from here.

🧰 Using the Data Filter


Navigate to Visualizer > Charts Library.


While editing a chart, open Settings > Chart Data Filter Configuration.


From this point, you will be able to see Options to offer filtering options and also UI Options to make them appealing.

⚙️ Available settings

UI Options


Here you will find the basic settings for adding filters:

  • Filter type - according to the chart type, you can add suitable filters: String Filter, Number Filter, Category Filter, Chart, and Data Range Filter.
  • Filter by Column Index - pick the column index according to the type ( number / string ).
  • Filter by Column Label - charts may have different labels, so you can pick the ones that you want to enter in the filters.
  • Formatted, Min, Max Value - settings that restrain the search.
  • Match Type - the search results will appear differently according to the match type ( prefix / exact / any ).
  • Case Sensitive - enable this if you want to have an exact search, using the case sensitive option.

UI Options 

From here, you can design a more appealing style to the data filter by adding:

  • Label - give the visitor more context and add a label next to the filtering method.
  • Label Separator -  you can use separators like ":" to delimitate the label better.
  • Caption - acts like a placeholder, and it is available only for the Category Filter.

  • Label Stacking - the label can appear next to the field ( horizontal ) or above ( vertical ). 
  • Orientation - it represents the orientation of the filtering field, and it is applied for the Number Range, Chart Range, and Date Range Filter.
  • Show Range Values - some filter types present a range, so you can choose to show the range values or not.
