Line Plot

KNIME JavaScript Base Views version 4.1.0.v201912041458 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

A line plot using a JavaScript based charting library. The view can be accessed either via the Interactive View action on the executed node or in the KNIME Web Portal.

The configuration of the node lets you choose the size of a sample to display and to enable certain controls, which are then available in the view. This includes the ability to choose different columns for x and y or the possibility to set a title. Enabling or disabling these controls via the configuration dialog might not seem useful at first glance but has benefits when used in a web portal/wizard execution where the end user has no access to the workflow itself.

The second input port provides the possibility to specify colors for the different lines/columns in the plot. Therefore append a Extract Column Header and Transpose node to the data table which should be plotted in this node. Afterwards use the Color Manager to append the colors based on the individual column names. The node automatically selects the column from the Color Manager and assigns the color values to the plotted columns.

Additionally a static SVG image can be rendered, which is then made available at the first output port.

Note, this node is currently under development. Future versions of the node might have more or changed functionality.

Options

Line Plot Options

Create image at outport
If an image is supposed to be rendered during execute for the upper outport. Disable this option if image is not needed or creation is too time consuming.
Maximum number of rows
Use this numerical value to restrict the number of rows used for this visualization.
Choose column for x-axis
Defines the column that contains the values for X coordinates.
Choose columns for y-axis
Defines the columns that contains the values for Y coordinates. Every included column is represented by one line in the view.
Report on missing values
Check to get the warning messages about missing values and being able to choose missing values handling strategy. If not checked, missing values will be ignored without raising a warning. For y-axis Connect handling method will be used.
Missing value handling (y-axis)
Defines how to handle missing values on the y-axis. Three methods are available:
  • Connect - The plot will be displayed with continuous lines where missing values are ignored.
  • Gap - Columns with missing values might produce gaps in the plotted line.
  • Skip column - The whole column will not be plotted if it contains missing values.

Axis Configuration

Label for x-axis (*)
The label for the x-axis. If left blank, the selected column name is displayed.
Label for y-axis (*)
The label for the y-axis. If left blank, the selected column name is displayed.
Date and Time types
Date and Time values are converted into string using the selected or entered conversion pattern as defined by moment.js. Examples:
  • "dddd, MMMM Do YYYY, h:mm:ss a" formats dates like "Sunday, February 14th 2010, 3:25:50 pm"
  • "ddd, hA" formats dates like "Sun, 3PM"
  • "YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ssZ" formats dates as defined by ISO 8601.

  • Y: year
  • Q: quarter
  • M: month of year
  • W: week of year
  • DDD: day of year
  • D: day of month
  • d: day of week
  • dd: day of week (Su Mo ... Fr Sa)
  • a: am/pm marker
  • H: hour in day (0-23)
  • k: hour in day (1-24)
  • h: hour in am/pm (1-12)
  • m: minute in hour
  • s: second in minute
  • S: millisecond
  • z: Time zone (EST CST ... MST PST)
  • Z: Time zone (offset)
  • X: unix timestamp
Localized formats:
  • LT: Time (e.g. 8:30 PM)
  • LTS: Time with seconds (e.g. 8:30:25 PM)
  • L: Month numeral (0 padded), day of month (0 padded), year (e.g. 09/04/1986)
  • l: Month numeral, day of month, year (e.g. 9/4/1986)
  • LL: Month name, day of month, year (e.g. September 4 1986)
  • ll: Month name (short), day of month, year (e.g. Sep 4 1986)
  • LLL: Month name, day of month, year, time (e.g. September 4 1986 8:30 PM)
  • lll: Month name (short), day of month, year, time (e.g. Sep 4 1986 8:30 PM)
  • LLLL: Month name, day of month, day of week, year, time (e.g. Thursday, September 4 1986 8:30 PM)
  • llll: Month name (short), day of month, day of week (short), year, time (e.g. Thu, Sep 4 1986 8:30 PM)
For printing an arbitrary string, wrap the string in square brackets, e.g. '[today] dddd'.
Locale
