Series with Only Data Points in Line Chart

    This script does not work with 2 categories, but a data modeling workaround can be used to group 2 categories into a single category.


    Before - using 2 Categories fields:


    After - using a single Categories field of concatenated fields:


    Create a custom column that is a concatenation of the 2 fields that you want to use as categories:


    Custom column: [Condition] + '-'+[Gender] 


    Build schema changes.

    Replace the 2 category fields in the widget with this new single multi categories concatenated field.


    Put the following script in the widget script:

    widget.on('render', function(sender, se){

    var s = sender.queryResult.series[2];

    // Change series to a line, enable the marker and hide the line
    s.type = "line";
    s.lineWidth = 0.01;
    s.marker = {
    enabled: true,
    radius: 6

    // When hovered state to disabled and lineWidth to 0
    sender.queryResult.plotOptions.series.states.hover.lineWidth = 0;
    sender.queryResult.plotOptions.series.states.hover.lineWidthPlus = 0;
    // Change the hover fillColor
    sender.queryResult.plotOptions.series.marker.states.hover.fillColor = 'white';

    Hi Crystal,

    You would need to iterate through each series within args.result.series and perform the remaining operations for each series object within the array.

    Hey All, 

    We are trying to populate the index labels with a plot point. Any advice on how we can set that up? We are using two categories and the script is completely hiding the points.
