Multi-Series Chart

Applies to Infiniti v8.6.2 or later
Infiniti now supports multiple series being displayed in an Infiniti chart using the chart question type, previously a user could only add a single series. The below example shows a chart comparing monthly temperature averages for two different years.

Note: this example assumes that the user has an existing data source set up to filter the chart with the necessary data. In this example we have used a simple database table that has monthly average temperatures for 2012 and 2013. Then used a multiple row list box data source to pull the data from the database and into Infiniti.

Please refer to the article Chart question type before continuing.
Simple multi-series temperature chart example:
  • Add a chart question type.
  • Rename the chart question and answer to a meaningful name e.g. 'Temp Chart'.
