Actions are configured events that users can trigger from a band, chart or feature in an Geocortex Inline view. For example, you might want to create an action that allows the user to print a report from a chart or search for data on the map.
- All actions are triggered from the context menu of the band, chart or feature.
- Actions triggered from a feature are known as feature actions.
You can add the following types of charts to an Inline view:
- Line chart
- Linear chart
- Scatter chart
Line charts display data as a series of points connected by lines. The Inline Designer lets you choose to connect your data points with straight or curved lines.
Linear charts always display information as a straight line. They are used to display:
- Linear features for which the rate of change for y values in relation to x values is constant.
- or -
- Linear features that have values that can be used to sort features on the y axis.
Scatter charts use points to represent values for two different variables, and show the relationship between those variables. Traditionally, each individual data point is represented by a dot on the chart, but the Inline Designer lets you customize the symbol used.
Geocortex Inline has a web-based Designer that you use to create and customize a view. The Designer allows you to add data sources, bands, and charts, and configure actions and functions that operate within those views.
To sign in to the Designer, you must have an ArcGIS Administrator account.
In Geocortex Inline, functions are advanced configuration options that allow you add functionality to your views. You can use functions for many purposes, but they are often used to insert variable values into the headings and labels displayed on a chart, or to customize the data that is displayed in a chart at runtime.
By default, every new view you create contains a Points of Interest (POI) band. There is no need to configure this band. Its presence allows your users to add points of interest (actions) to the charts contained in your published views. If you do not want your users to be able to add points of interest, you can delete this band.
Note that Add Point of Interest and Remove Point of Interest are built-in actions.
A view is the end result of your configuration in the Geocortex Inline Designer.
