Histogram and heat matrix animation
You might want to play through the values of your quantitative or temporal data, for example to see what activity occurred over a time period and how the chart changed over that time. You can play through the values by animating histograms and heat matrices.
You animate heat matrices and histograms in the Histograms window.
|Move||Use the selected bars or heat map cells as the starting point and move the selection across the x-axis. This action is the equivalent of selecting each bar or cell in turn.|
|Expand||Use the selected bars or heat map cells as a starting point and expand the selection from there across the x-axis. This action is the equivalent of adding each bar in turn to the previous selection.|
Run an animation by selecting the bars or heat matrix cells of interest and clicking Play. When animation mode runs, the Play button changes to Pause. Click this button to stop the animation.
By default, the animation ignores empty columns. To include empty columns in the animation, on the Options page of the Bar Charts and Histograms pane, select the Include Empty Columns check box under Histogram Animation.
