    Any ideas on how to make this work for the 'break by / color' of a Scatter Chart?  It appears that the element must be something different than the label, because attempting to use this as the paneltochange option fails with a browser error:

      Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'items' of undefined

    It works perfectly for the 'point' element, but not 'break by / color'. Thanks!

    Very cool! This could be really useful for pie charts as well, if that's a possibility.

    Ian, it is!  For pie charts just change the "panel to change" value in the plug-in widget to "categories" or "values" depending on whether you're changing dimensions or metrics.

    I see earlier in this thread that to sort with this plugin you press the usual A->Z.  However, I do not see an A->Z in the changer widget and on the chart the sort gets overwritten when I change dimensions.

    I installed the plugin, but I’m not able to get the Dimension Changer widget to work. I am currently on version 7.2 of Sisense. I am using the below script for the dimension changer widget (screenshot #1).

    In my case when I switch to a different value from the dimension changer widget it creates a duplicate of the value I just selected (screenshots #2) and nothing happens with the Column Chart.

    Am I missing something to get the dimension changer to work properly?

    Thank you for providing this plugin. Just downloaded it and setup three dimensions offering alternating views for four Bar and Column charts on my dashboard. Loving how smoothly it  works, however, running into these issues if someone can help ?
    1. Can’t set Chart Bar Values %, $ and number formatting per dimension.
    2. Chart’s Bar Values SORT DESC doesn’t stay .
    3. Bar Chart’s Auto Zoom settings doesn’t stay.

    PS: Omer’s suggestion from January 04, 2017 05:25 in the thread didn’t work out.


    TIA

    @An Y, 

     

    Generally, you can achieve what you're looking for by modifying the "changeDimension(element)" function (located in the widget.js file). 

    It requires some playing around to achieve what you want, ping me if you need any help.

    Cheers,

    Hi everybody,

    I cannot make it work, probably I've done something wrong or I skip a step.
    I do not understand how I create a "connection" between the changer widget and the column chart. 
    I mean, I create a column chart with some values like count(orders) and count(customers), then I want to display them throught the changer, so I create a new widget that is a dimension changer and I put the same values in it. 
    Now how can I connect the two widgets? Am I doing something wrong?

    Sorry if it is a commonplace question.

    Best regards,
    Antonio

    Hi Antonio,

    In Dimension Changer widget in edit mode, on the right hand side in the design pane you have at the top option to add widgets affected by dimension changer. Click add button there and select which widget/-s should be affected. Hope it helps.

    Regards,

    Michał

    Hi Michael,

    thanks for your reply.
    I added the widgets but they continue to show only their on values, they don't become one single widget that can be navigated through Dimension Changer Widget.
    I also looked at the example dashboard but I am still confused about how this works, maybe I don't have to create the values in the column charts?

    Best regards,

    Antonio

    Hi,

    Is it possible to choose which formula to use in "Values" section for a Pivot widget based on which "Rows" value we are selecting from the Dimension Changer? We are switching between Year, Quarter and Month and need to use GrowthPastYear, GrowthPastQuarter and GrowthPastMonth function depending on which value we are choosing. Is anyone aware if we can achieve it with this plugin.

    Thanks

    The Measure/Dimension Changer plug in can also be configured to change dimensions (categories, break by) on a widget.

    To configure the Measure/Dimension Changer after downloading the plug in to the plugins folder:

    Step 1: Create a Dimension Changer Widget.

    Step 2: Add the Categories/Break By Fields that you want to toggle in the affected charts on the Rows panel. Select the widgets affected by the dimension changes under the Design tab and define Panel to Change: Categories or the relevant panel for your chart type.

     

     

    Step 3: The Measure/Dimension changer widget can now change the dimensions of the charts associated with the plug in widget:

    Not working on our end as well. I also created a ticket to let your dev team dig that issue. Thanks for giving us visibility on a potential fix.

    To get it working in ver 8 and higher. Open the Json file in the widget and made the following changes:

     

     

    "pluginInfraVersion": "2",

    To 

    Version": "2"

    I can now select Dimension Changer as a widget, however there is no option to select the widget to impact, per Weinan's screenshot above.

    Anyone have this working in 8.1.1?  Like some of the other posters I either can't see the widget as an option to create, or after altering the json file i am unable to relate the dimension changer to any of my existing widgets.

    Hi,

    This looks like a great plugin and i would be very happy to make use of it. I installed it but still cannot see the dimension changer in the widget list. It seems that the version we are using doesn't support the plugin (we are currently on the 8.1.3.10037 version).  Can anything be done to make it work on 8.1 version?

    Hi, found this thread after upgrading and realizing plugin broke...

    This one has become so important to our users that we had to revert from the new Sisense version, back to the old. 

    Any official update on this?
