CanvasXpress is a Java-Script library designed for Data Analytics with full audit capabilities and a sophisticated user interface. The interface is fitted with unobtrusive widgets designed for simple graph configuration, audit trail, and straightforward user interaction included in every visualizations.
The canvasXpress user interface has different widgets with embedded functions in the visualizations:
Each of the icons allows for the execution of various functions:
To show the menus, click on any white space within the graph. This brings up different types of content depending on the type of graph. There are various options, such as menus for bar graphs, scatter plots, etc.
To navigate menus which have several layers, move and reposition the menus by dragging.
Pin the menus to the primary toolbar.>
Double-clicking on any white space in the graph brings up the configurator, a widget used for searching for the parameter needed. It is designed to show the various available parameters as the user types them in, which is followed by selecting and changing the value of any specific parameter.
This option is for the configuration of the visualization. It works by a drag-and-drop function, through which the user can access many customizations.
The Data Explorer has three sections:
Data filters can be automatically configured, depending on the type of metadata included in the visualization. This can be either numeric (continuous) or discrete (categorical).
The filter might appear as a checkbox, or a searchable drop-down menu with multiple sections, depending on the number of categories available. With the numerical filters, the user can toggle between both the log and the normal space.
A crossed icon on top is designed for resetting all the filters when or if necessary.
Use this widget to view both the data as well as the metadata included in the visualization.
