Highlighter

Highlight

With highlighter widgets, you can highlight the data of your interest in visualizations. The highlighted data appears framed in blue.

When to use

Use a highlighter widget to emphasize specific data in visualizations that show large amounts of data. For example, if a visualization presents your company's sales for a large number of cities, you can highlight a specific city. This way, you can see the sales of that city and compare them with the sales of other cities.

You can use the following highlighter types:

  • Dropdown – Select one option from the drop-down list.

  • Single select – Select one option from the list.

  • Multi select – Select several options from the list.

  • Expression – Enter a mathematical expression that you want to use for highlighting the data in a non-aggregated status. For example, if you use the Sales Cost column and enter the expression >100, the visualization data items for which the sales cost is higher than 100 will be highlighted.

    You can use the following symbols.

    SymbolUse this item to
    =

    Show only the data items whose value is equal to the specified value. For example, use "=100" to show only the data whose value is equal to 100.

    >

    Show only the data items whose value is greater than the specified value. For example, use ">100" to show only the data whose value is greater than 100.

    >=

    Show only the data items whose value is greater than or equal to the specified value. For example, use ">=100" to show only the data whose value is greater than or equal to 100.

    <Show only the data items whose value is less than the specified value. For example, use "<100" to show only the data whose value is less than 100.
    <=

    Show only the data items whose value is less than or equal to the specified value. For example, use "<=100" to show only the data whose value is less than or equal to 100.

    ><

    <>

    Show a range of numeric values. For example, use ">100<500" to show only the data whose value is more than 100 and less than 500, or "<500>100" to show only the data whose value is less than 500 and more than 100.

    >= <=

    <= >=

    Show a range of numeric values. For example, use ">=100<=500" to show only the data whose value is greater than or equal to 100 and less than or equal to 500, or "<=500>=100" to show only the data whose value is less than or equal to 500 and greater than or equal to 100.

    This highlighter type is available if you select a column that contains measures.

You can apply highlighters to the following visualization types.
