InetSoft Technology: Hierarchical Arrangement of Multidimensional Data

InetSoft's dashboard application allows hierarchical arrangement of multidimensional data and produces brilliant visualizations. View the example below to learn more about the Style Intelligence solution.

There are two ways to add additional hierarchy levels to a Selection Tree. The following sections explain both methods.

To add levels to an existing Selection Tree hierarchy, follow these steps:

  1. Expand a Data Block (table) or cube dimension in the Component tree.
  2. Ctrl-click or Shift-click to select one or more columns in the Data Block or one or more levels in the cube dimension.
  3. Drag the selected columns or levels onto an existing Selection Tree that is bound to the same Data Block or cube dimension. (Drop the columns or levels onto the Selection Tree when the green highlight appears.)

This adds the selected fields to the bottom (inner-most levels) of the Selection Tree hierarchy. The nesting order for the new levels is determined by the order in which you selected the fields in the Component tree.

To add hierarchy levels to a Selection Tree, follow these steps:

You can also drag and drop a single column directly onto the empty Selection List element.

  1. Right-click on the Selection Tree, and select ‘Properties’ from the context menu. This opens the ‘Selection Tree Properties’ dialog box.
  2. Select the Data tab.
  3. From the ‘Table’ list, select the Data Block column or cube dimension that you wish to add to the hierarchy.
  4. Click ‘Add’.
  5. Repeat to add any additional levels to the hierarchy. To change the hierarchy ordering, use the ‘Move Down’ and ‘Move Up’ buttons. The order from top to bottom represents the nesting order from outer to inner.
  6. Click ‘OK’ to close the dialog.
