Blockbax Line Chart
Configure and embed Blockbax Line Charts within a few clicks to visualize large amounts of data that is stored in your Blockbax project.
The Blockbax Line Chart widget allows you to easily make use of the power of the Blockbax backend and charting capabilities by wrapping it in a Mendix widget which uses the powerful Blockbax Embed API. Simply fill in the required fields, run your application and enjoy the speed and ease of visualizing large amounts of data. Documentation regarding the Embed API can be found here: https://blockbax.com/docs/integrations/embed-api/, however our Mendix widget simplifies the process by only needing you to fill in certain parameters. An example can be found by clicking here.
The Blockbax Line Chart widget allows you to implement line charts by simply entering parameters from your Blockbax project. The Line Chart will ensure that the correct data is displayed, based on the configured parameters in the widget in Mendix Studio Pro. By using this widget, you will not need to process measurements, rather the graph will be embedded in your Mendix application based on the power of the Blockbax Platform.
Typical usage scenario
