Custom visual made with Charticulator not respecting scale

Hi,

I tried to create a custom visual via Charticulator.

It's a clustered and stacked column chart.

Do someone know why my visual is not respecting the scale please? Here only deep blue rectangles are resized:

You can find here my power BI example and my custom visual.

 

Thank you in advance

Regards,

Camille

Hi Camille,

 

It is unclear what is wrong in this case.

I see that it is respecting the scale but proportions is changed irrationally for some frame sizes.

Looks like it is rather their feature than a bug or may be there is some option to regulate this behavior.

Re: Custom visual made with Charticulator not respecting scale

Hi @Camicamomille,

I need the same type of chart, did you manage to solve the issue? Is it possible that you can share the chart with me somehow so I can make use of it?

Thanks,

Helena

Re: Custom visual made with Charticulator not respecting scale

Hi @Camicamomille,

At a glance, this sometimes happens when an object isn't snapped to a visual guide, however in order to investigate the issue, we'll need the raw file from Charticulator rather than the compiled Power BI custom visual. I did check the link in your OP but could only find the workbook and .pbiviz file.

If you're able to provide the .chart file, I can take a look. If you're not sure how to do this, please review the Download as Chart section of their doc.

Thanks,

Daniel

Re: Custom visual made with Charticulator not respecting scale

Hi @Camicamomille & @helenawickstrom

I had a go at this, using an example on another thread. The generated viz does seem to scale as I'd expect when I resize in Power BI Desktop...

...so I'm hoping that @Camicamomille's version may be a placement issue w/guides as originally assumed. Still happy to take a look at this if you want to attach the .chart file as previously mentioned.

I've attached a copy of my workbook, generated custom visual, and the .chart file for you to load into Charticulator as a starting point, if you wish to have a go at working it to your particular situation. You'll find these just underneath this post's content below.

All the best,

Daniel

EDIT: Looks like .chart files are not allowed and broke my post. I've attached all 3 files in a .zip instead.

Re: Custom visual made with Charticulator not respecting scale

Hi @dm-p 

Many thanks for taking time to look into this and your support! Your chart works fine in Power BI for me. 

A couple of questions:

-Is it possible to have the chart update in Power BI if the source data is updated with more categories? (e.g. we if we have 5 statuses in the Status-column instead of the current 3.) Or would that have to be adjusted for in Charticulator?

-I would also need to have different fill in the column pairs, is that posssible?

Re: Custom visual made with Charticulator not respecting scale

Hi @helenawickstrom, and glad you found it useful!

While additional statuses would theoretically work, I would always recommend revisiting the visual in charticulator for any changes to the underlying data. The visuals produced are essentially bespoke to each situation and are not a good 'one size fits all' solution. This is one of the reasons building marketplace custom visuals is so challenging, as it's difficult to consider the many permutations and combinations that makers might have 😉

I think your second requirement would be possible, but you'd have to get pretty specific with the nested chart. I currently don't have capacity to attempt this but I might approach this by setting up a glyph for one series and condition its visibility based on its value. I could then set specific status colours for that one, and I'd repeat with the second glyph for the other series.

Regards,

Daniel
