Report Editor - 2D Data Chart Help

Pie ChartBoxes Chart

The report engine allows building 2-dimensional charts based on the data, received from the database. The source of data for the chart is a cursor with one or two columns. Others will be ignored. The first column is used for values of Y-axis. The second one is used for X-axis values. Except for the Scatter type of chart, the second column is optional. According to the received data report engine builds a chart that helps you to visualize information.
