In this article we'll provide information on how to create and customise the Cards tile type in Calxa dashboards.
Each tile type allows you to bind data in a similar way, however each tile will have different data properties. This section describes the data properties specific to a Cards dashboard tile.
Actual & Target
When adding a Card, you'll need to choose an Actual and a Target value.
To manage the position and visibility of card elements you can choose a predefined layout and additionally customise its settings.
One of the Card elements called Delta, is the difference between the actual and target values. Delta values have a delta indicator, percent variation and absolute variation. This is shown with a delta indicator (indicating whether the actual value is less than or greater than the target value) and delta values (representing this difference as an absolute value or a variation).
Specifies which values should be displayed as the delta value.
Specifies the condition for displaying the delta indicator as red or green.
Specifies the comparison tolerance in percentage values or in absolute values.
Specifies the comparison tolerance value. If the delta value is between the positive and negative Threshold, the delta value is gray and no indication is displayed.
For each value type on the card you can choose different number formatting options.
Contains the data item whose values will be used to label separate cards in the tile. If no series is provided, only one card element will be displayed. When you add series, the number of tile elements is multiplied by the number of series values.
A sparkline is a small inline graph used to visualise a series of actual or target values, typically over time. To add a sparkline you must provide a sparkline argument. Most commonly this will be the period in a multi-period data source.
If you've included a sparkline the options are defined back under the cards value configuration.
Defines the sparkline’s view type. Sparkline data points can be represented as area, line, bars, or win and loss squares.
Highlight min/max points
Specifies whether to highlight the minimum/maximum points of a sparkline.
Highlight start/end point
Specifies whether to highlight the start/end points of a sparkline.
