For general settings that apply to most widgets, see Building Widgets. Customization unique to the breakdown bar widget will be detailed below.
Once you’ve added a dimension to your widget, you’ll be able to hide, rename, and reorder the labels on your widget. If you decide to hide certain labels, you’ll have to decide whether you want to include this data when percentages are calculated on the widget. If not, deselect Include hidden labels in percents. If you keep this item selected and hide a label, the breakdown bar’s length will not adjust for the missing bar.
There are two options for the orientation of the breakdown bar widget: horizontal and vertical. Selecting a particular orientation can help you position the widget in relation to the other widgets on your dashboard.
You can determine how thick your bar graph is. Fixed results in a lean, thin bar. Responsive results in a bar that gets thicker as you drag and resize the widget. Responsive horizontal bars get thicker as they are made taller, and responsive vertical bars get thicker as they are dragged wider.
You can determine what amount of information is displayed in the labels on the colorful areas of the breakdown bar widget:
- Percent: Displays the percentage of responses that fall into a particular segment of the bar.
- Label: Displays the label assigned to each value in the Labels section.
- Count: Displays the number of responses that fall into a particular segment of the bar.
