Viewport Data Visualization

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had success creating a viewport with data visualizations based on a custom record format?  I can only get it to work with "Special Records" (Spaces, etc...).  

 

Also, is there a way to combine record field values to change attributes based on If/And statements?  I guess what I'm looking for is something similar to the custom selection feature.

 

Thanks in advance for any help or comments!  This seems like it has the potential to be a powerful tool!

I just ran a test and I was able to get it to work with custom record formats as expected.  There are 2 layers of apply boxes that have to be checked - both on the override setting and also the Use data visualization.  
If/and would be great.

There is no If/And/Then/Or currently. It also works in place of viewport class overrides, you currently can't combine class overrides and data visualization within the same viewport. This was immediately pounced upon by the Techs here as well as a needed feature. I am fairly certain it is already in the plan and just didn't make the cut into DataViz Phase 1, but I will double check and submit a wish if not.

Hmm, weird, I just tried it again and I'm able to get it to work now.  Not sure what I was doing wrong last time but I'll try to troubleshoot and post if I find something that seems like a but.  Thanks for the feedback, and do please add to the wish list if it's not there already!
