Any recommendations on what chart widgets are most useful for displaying how several boolean properties change over time (i.e. I have 4 or 5 booleans for a given thing I want to track)? I've looked at using Event Chart, Label Chart, and Time Series Charts.
The Event Chart works to a degree using state based formatting to get vertical lines that are red/blue for true/false values etc., but the overall result isn't ideal (continuing to play with properties of that widget to see how I can improve it though).
Label Charts might be better to give a bar chart look over time, but that seems more designed for numeric values vs booleans. Perhaps some conversion of true=1 and false=0 can be done simply for my value stream to get the data to display? I'd rather not change my boolean property definitions to integers (or write some boolean-to-integer service of my own that ends up being clumsy). Appears Time Series Charts likewise will only work if I convert boolean data to 1/0?
Other suggestions on widgets that might be a better way to approach this?
Event Chart is certainly one way to go, but somewhat tricky to make it look nice.
You might want to go with a conversion to 1/0 and use a Range Chart so you can get a horizontal bar over time.
Label Chart also can do it, but it would look quite different as it would have entries per measurements vs. a 'fill over time'
You may need to do some data manipulation to get a proper data set.
