How to Use

Flex is fairly easy to get started with! Really, all you have to do is drag the stack onto the page, and then add Bar Items using the ( + ) button. After that you will see that there are a rang of settings to customize the sizing, spacing etc. of your chart.

The quickest way to get Bars setup, is to add a few items, and then simply scroll to the very bottom of the settings panel to change the colors! Then checkout the top of the settings panel to set your min/max values, and finally, select each individual item to set their values.

There are tons of layout and customization options, allowing for some amazing stuff!!


General

This is where you can find the general options for your bar/bar chart! The main things you will want to focus on here are the MIN/MAX Values, and the chart Direction.

Chart Range (Min / Max)

Here you will find 2 inputs for setting the minimum value, and maxium value for your chart.

NOTE: Because bar fill sizes are calculated based on percentages, if your chart max is anything other than 100, then true bar sizes will only be displayed in preview/live mode.

Not to worry though, when previewed/published true bar fill sizes will be displayed.

Fill Direction (Increasing / Decreasing)

This dropdown simply allows you to select whether the bars will fill upwards or downwards. This is useful when you want to create charts that show decreasing values, rather than increasing ones.

Max Width

The max width simply determines the maximum width that the stack can stretch. It will automatically respond to fit mobile devices.

Animation Speed

This option simply allows you to set the animation speed for the bar fills. Note that the speed should be set in Milliseconds

1000ms = 1s
