I want to use the graph during my presentation,
using Tangraph's playback mode. How do I manage the speed of
it and pause or stop during the play?
- Yes! The lines' logos can be formatted as HTML elements with
embedded links. As you move your cursor over the line titles
in this example
, you'll see
your cursor changing into a pointer - click on the link to
open the page in a separate window or tab.
Can I include images and/or video
clips in tooltips?
- There are three parameters that will help you. One defines
how often the frames are updated, another - the speed of the
presentation mode. Finally, Tangraph
also has a parameter for presentation pauses - to define their
locations and durations, including indefinite pauses (in this
mode the graph will wait for a mouse click to continue).This demo
will pause for
5 seconds after first and third day of tournament and will
stop after the second day, waiting for your click.
I want to calculate tooltip values
- Of course! Simply include <video> or <img> information in the tooltip definition (don't forget to include the dimensions - they are crucial for image rendering). This example

offers an extensive
tooltip-definition language, with formulas and conditional
formatting. This example
shows how the averages
can be defined in a tooltip formula and calculated at runtime.
You can also see that the formatting of the last point on
the Brodeur's line is different - it is done by using a conditional

to be defined by its color or its HTML. Here
is an example
of the latter, with tiled images.

has a notion of a
"dependent" or "subordinate" line. It defines a subset of points on a line. This subset can have its own color schema and tooltip definition as shown in this example
In my sport (say, golf) the lower
the score the better. How do I invert the graph to display the
winning score on the top?
- You don't have to define it twice. One of the many tags
available in the tooltip definition language refers to the
line's color. This allows to seemlessly color-coordinate tooltips
for all lines with just one definition. In this example
are color-coordinated with their lines.
I have plenty of data on the screen,
and some points get obscured. Can I hide or show them at runtime.
has a special parameter
designed precisely with this case in mind. See here
how it is being used.
I want to make my tooltips semi-transparent.
- First, you don't have to show it all right off the bat.
Set a hide flag for the lines you don't want to show when
the applet first being rendered. Also, use our hide/show/blink
on mouse over features. They can be turned on and using their
respective parameters. This is how it works: if BLINK is set,
a graph blinks to reveal itself every time you move your mouse
over a corresponding line's definition in a sidebar. If you
set HIDE and check a line's checkbox is checked - the line
will be hidden when you move your mouse over its definition.
SHOW complements this behavior, allowing to display the line
if the checkbox is unchecked. See here
how BLINK parameter
works and here
I want to see a "slice" of my
graph at any moment of time to compare the values.
- There are separate parameters for defining the opaqueness
of the tooltips and of the vertical and horizontal grid lines.

I want to see several seasons of one
player's data compared. How can I do that?
has a notion of a
bottom tooltip. If defined, it is activated when you move
your cursor over and around the X axis. Its definition is
as flexible as of the line tooltips. Also, you can define
different sorting orders (by value, alphabetically or in the
order the lines are defined). In this example
tooltip is sorted by value to represent the teams' standing
at any given time.
Do I need to register?
has a synchronization
mode that allows to display them in the same timeframe. Here
is but one example.
- When you register your copy, we guarantee you will be receiving support, upgrades and bug fixes until the day your registration expires. You can still use an unregistered applet, but the screen's background will allways be the same default one (as in this example
), and tooltips and playback mode will soon become disabled.
You can request a tryout key that has a limited time till expiration. When registering, you can ask for site-wide or individual registrations.
