Grid Chart

The Vitara grid is the easiest to use grid. With a single click, we can access an infinite number of options. Grid formatting is provided at both the column and row levels, as well as appealing grid themes, the ability to group (Page by) at many levels, metric aggregations (Subtotals) at various grouping levels, column grouping, thresholds with custom icons, and many other features.


Metrics: 1 metric Attributes: At least 1 attribute Use as Filter Option - Available

grid inputs

Using the Vitara grid chart it’s so easy to apply the following options.


We can apply to the group, both at column level and row level. Expand/collapse grouping. For group headlines, we can apply aggregations. Further, we can show grand totals for grouped metric aggregated headlines.


We can show aggregations (Subtotals) on groupings. Enable or disable grand totals.


Apply/remove thresholds easily. In thresholds, we can set the background color, text color, icons, icon color, icon size, icon only and use custom images as icons.


The column data can be sorted in either ascending or descending order with only one click on the column header. Data will be sorted in ascending order on the first click, descending order on the second click, and sorting on a column will be removed on the third click. There is also a “Clear Sorting” tab that will reverse the sorting that has been performed to every grid column.

Show/hide the number of children in a row group:

Grid/Micro chart’s 3.8 edition added the ability to show or hide the number of children in a row group. The number of children in a row group can be shown or hidden in grid/micro charts. Click the ‘Edit’ button, then select ‘Grid Theme’ and check the ‘Hide Children Count’ checkbox in the properties popup window.
