That's what I do. Use the json store, it's ideal for it.
Make a page with all your fields and load and save the info. Look under examples, there's an address form you can use as an example to work from.
We were all noobs at one point! I'm glad you're able to apply what you've learnt.
I don't mind helping, I learned a boatload here over the last few years.
But I think it's always good to have a good search. If not here, there's stackoverflow and other sites. Sometimes I'll get a private message because it's one of those things that is there in your face but as you've said - you've stared at for hours and have made zero progress and need a fresh pair of eyes.
Everyone is happy to help here, I just like loitering here more than I probably should!
Might be because the second way needs the init outside in another element... probably a parent div. I usually use the first way myself, as I write and map everything in my own controllers.
At least you're learning, that's the main thing!
You need to add the strictMinMax property, this question has come up a lot in the forums. I suggest you use the search and have a browse with amcharts/serial chart as the search item, you'll gain a lot of experience very quickly I assure you.
For the graphs themselves if you want individual colours for each datapoint split them up and use series-#- attributes rather than just points and values.
Enable the api menu item under administration -> edit menu -> Api Docs, turn it on and click save at the top.
The maSerialChart will be under components.
Note that it will pay to enable the API help menu item under administration->edit menus
then click through the available components to see how everything works inside the dashboard.
Sorry I'm late to the party, had to work out of office for 3 days,
@north It's not something that is built into the Mango UI. However you could certainly create a custom component to insert into your dashboards to do this. You could use amCharts or d3 to do this. Any reason you are not upgrading to Mango 3.7?
Thanks for the help I am navigating through the new UI and getting most of it to work as I need. I was able to get the DS import working.
One last question about the JSON importing. I create the Excel reports normally by exporting the report template in csv then manipulating the references in Excel and then back in again using the csv import. How should I now get this excel Report template exported to a csv format and re-imported back into the system as an excel report template?
