Switchable Break By Plugin/Widget/Script

I have a Bar Chart that is Revenue per past 12 months.


I have 5-6 different fields that my users want to view revenue over the past 12 month “Broken by” or “categoried” by


Meaning, lets try a stacked area chart, or a column chart etc… they want the ability to specify a the bar should be broken up by:


  • Ship Type
  • Work Type
  • Billing Type


I can build all these very easily, but nothing I’ve seen in widget scripts or blox seems to do what I need, even this…

Is there a widget script that I can add to provide a dropdown somewhere to change this? or can i create these as bloX actions, but then how do i make a BloX bar chart??!

Hi @liamcameron ,

There are multiple approaches to achieve your goal:

  1. Utilizing a Widget Script: You can use the following widget script. This script introduces buttons for each dimensions. Upon clicking a button, the chart dynamically updates based on the selected category. Ensure to customize the 'dimensions' variable with jaql of the the necessary dimensions you wish to switch.

    widget.on('processresult', function(se, ev){	
    	ev.result.chart.marginTop= 60
    widget.on("domready", function(w){
    	chart = w.chart[0][Object.keys(w.chart[0])[0]].hc
    	const dimensions = {
    		"Age Range": {
    			table: "Commerce",
    			column: "Age Range",
    			dim: "[Commerce.Age Range]",
    			datatype: "text",
    			title: "Age Range"
    		"Condition": {
    			table: "Commerce",
    			column: "Condition",
    			dim: "[Commerce.Condition]",
    			datatype: "text",
    			title: "Condition"
    		"Gender": {
    			table: "Commerce",
    			column: "Gender",
    			dim: "[Commerce.Gender]",
    			datatype: "text",
    			title: "Gender"
    	$.each(Object.keys(dimensions), function(index, value){
    		chart.renderer.button(value, 10 + (index * 95), 10)
    				zIndex : 10,
    				height: 15,
    				width: 75,
    				'text-align': 'center'
    			.on('click', function() {	
    				w.metadata.panels[2].items[0].jaql = dimensions[value];
