Fast Chart Type Change

The type of chart can be changed by the user without going via the Chart Properties dialog, provided that the Fast Type Change option has been selected on the Chart Properties: General page.

An icon showing the next available chart type (Allowed Types selected for fast type change) will appear in the chart. By left-clicking the icon, the chart will change to the indicated type. By right-clicking the icon you get a drop-down menu with all selected types.

The application designer can choose Preferred Icon Position of the fast type change icon. By choosing In Caption the icon will appear in the chart caption, provided that a caption is shown. By choosing In Chart the icon will appear inside the chart, provided that the chart is not a pivot table or straight table. If the preferred position is not available, QlikView will try to use the other option. In table charts without caption, no icon will be shown.
