Hi,

Im trying to sort a stacked bar chart in Designer based on the total measure.

But when I do that it splits up each discrete bar (see below):

ENGINE INT CACHE SET ON

SET PAGE-NUM=NOLEAD

-DEFAULTH &WF_HTMLENCODE=OFF;

SET HTMLENCODE=&WF_HTMLENCODE

SET ARGRAPHENGINE=JSCHART

-DEFAULTH &WF_EMPTYREPORT=ON;

SET EMPTYREPORT=&WF_EMPTYREPORT

SET EMBEDHEADING=ON

SET GRAPHDEFAULT=OFF

-DEFAULTH &WF_ARVERSION=1;

SET ARVERSION=&WF_ARVERSION

-DEFAULTH &WF_STYLE_UNITS=PIXELS;

-DEFAULTH &WF_STYLE_HEIGHT=405.0;

-DEFAULTH &WF_STYLE_WIDTH=770.0;

-DEFAULTH &WF_TITLE=WebFOCUS Report;

GRAPH FILE transmetric/finalapps

BY FINALAPPS.FINALAPPS.LASTAPPDATE_QUARTER

BY TOTAL HIGHEST CNT.FINALAPPS.FINALAPPS.UNIQUECANDIDATE NOPRINT

BY FINALAPPS.FINALAPPS.STATE

ON GRAPH PCHOLD FORMAT JSCHART

ON GRAPH SET VZERO OFF

ON GRAPH SET GRWIDTH 1

In Tableau, I clicked the sort button and it did exactly what Im looking for (see below):

How do I replicate the total sort in Designer or InfoAssist

Hi Ryan,

Im happy to be corrected, but I dont believe Designer allows that as yet. We had a case for this recently. There are the following methods to do it with InfoAssist+ or via code:

Via InfoAssist+: https://webfocusinfocenter.informationbuilders.com/wfappent/TL2s/TL_rel/source/Sort_Total_Value.htm

Via Code:

I agree that this is a fundamental feature that should be as easy as it is in Tableau. In our applications, almost every instance where a stacked bar or column chart is created, wed want to do this eg: "show me the sales for top X geographies, stacked by product "

Cheers,

Steve
