Chart (Formally known as SQL Chart) allows you to define your own SQL query to determine the charts that you would like to generate, ranging from a number of graph types.

Custom ID

Item link slug. Optional field.

LabelMenu label. Mandatory field.
Chart Type
  • Area Chart

Figure 2: SQL Chart Properties - Datasource

  • Using Data Binder
  • Default Datasource
  • Custom Datasource
New Feature

New feature in Joget Workflow for more flexible ways to build chart dataset using the existing Datalist Binders.

Data Binder

When Datasource is set to "Using Data Binder", this option will show up.

Please see Datalist Binder for available binder to use.

SQL Query

When Datasource is set to use any of the "Datasource", this option will show up.

SQL Query to produce the dataset required for the graph type.

The first column in the dataset will be assumed for X-axis/label.

The first column to be returned from the query must be a label (X-axis), followed by value columns for the Y-axis.

Example 1:

SELECT c_status as 'status', COUNT(c_status) as 'count' FROM app_fd_tix_tickets WHERE c_status IS NOT NULL GROUP BY c_status

Example 2:

select c.c_claimant, sum( cast( replace(c.c_total,'$', '') as decimal(10,2)) ) as 'total', avg( cast( replace(c.c_total,'$', '') as decimal(10,2)) ) as 'avg' from app_fd_hr_expense_claim c group by c.c_claimant

Order ByColumn to be sorted in the graph dataset. This would affect how the graph is plotted.
  • ASC
  • DESC
X-axis Value 
X-axis label. 
Y-axis Values
Y-axis dataset.

Show Legend?
If checked, legend will be shown in the generated graph.
Show Value Label in Chart?

If checked, this will affect the generated graph.
Display as Horizontal Chart?

Figure 5: SQL Chart Properties - Advanced

Userview Key Name

When defined, additional condition will be appended using the value defined here as the parameter and the userview key value as the value.


SQL: SELECT category, count(category) FROM table1

Userview Key Name: type

Userview Key Value: val

Resultant SQL:  SELECT category, count(category) FROM table1 WHERE type = 'val'

When userview key value is defined, you may define #userviewKey# in your SQL query to have it replaced with the userview key value.


SQL: SELECT category, count(category) FROM table1 WHERE type = '#userviewKey#'

Userview Key Value: val

Resultant SQL:  SELECT category, count(category) FROM table1 WHERE type = 'val'

Interactive Chart

The following code can be modified and put in "Custom Footer" for interactive Chart.

        function (event, seriesIndex, pointIndex, data) {   
            //for chart which used legend and x-axis, 
            var xaxis = $(".jqplot-xaxis-tick:eq("+pointIndex+")");
            var series = $(".jqplot-table-legend-label:eq("+seriesIndex+")");
            console.log("x-axis :" + xaxis.text());
            console.log("series :" + series.text());
    //for double click event. Please note the arguments are different.
        function (event, coordinate, points, data) {   

            if (data) {
                var xaxis = $(".jqplot-xaxis-tick:eq("+data.pointIndex+")");
                var series = $(".jqplot-table-legend-label:eq("+data.seriesIndex+")");

                console.log("values :" +;
                console.log("x-axis :" + xaxis.text());
                console.log("series :" + series.text());

 This code does not work with OHLC and candlestick chart.
