We are currently evaluating your tool as part of a large project / solution we are building and we have downloaded the evaluation of it and love it! But I do have a few questions that I would like to ask…
1.) Can we set the default of the control so that all fields and filters render in expanded mode (All filtered data is expanded from the start once rendered)?
2.) Can we place the charts data info at the top of the chart itself. (We see the charts info on hover, but would like to place some of that info on the chart itself (like at the top of a bar chart line))?
3.) Currently when running the sample we have, when i go to export to PDF or PNG, it says ‘Failed to load PDF document’ or ‘Looks like we don’t support this file format (exporting to image)). What would cause this? cause the other exports work?
4.) Can we set the default format to ‘Classic Form’ from the start?
5.) Is there a way to capture the filter sets in an understandable string and place that in a chart or print out?
6.) Are we able to use another chart engine, such as hi charts, chart.js or something?
7.)Is it possible to have a pre-defined report (we save a .json file from the chart) and have it so that if we click a link, the flex monster control will automatically load this saved pre-defined report and open the report within the control itself?
8.)Can you explain if filter types for a field will only show for a field type. Like strings and number fields all show the same filters (Contains, Greater Than, and so on). You would think these filters only show if the filter could be used on a field and its field type, yet all the same filters seem to show.
9.) Can we order the Measures Group, Attributes, Dimensions and such in the control. Each time it loads, it comes in different order. Can we control where and how it shows on the control (trying to maintain consistency with our client)?
Thanks in advance,
