Intro

The delta micro chart helps to visualize a delta value (difference) between two main key figures. The delta can be a positive or negative value. Configured thresholds define the semantic coloring of the delta bar. The left-aligned labels can be omitted, whereas the right-aligned labels with the values are always shown.

Usage

The delta micro chart can be embedded into a table, list, tile, or header.

Responsiveness

The delta micro chart is fully responsive. The size adjusts dynamically based on the dimensions of the parent container. In addition, there are four fixed sizes: L, M, S and XS. Each fixed size is a snapshot of the fully responsive micro chart for specific dimensions.

You can use size XS to embed the delta micro chart in the cells of a grid tableanalytical table, or tree table (also in condensed mode). Left-align the delta micro chart in the table cell.

Maximum and Minimum Sizes

The delta micro chart can have the following dimensions:

Width Height
Maximum 320 px 94 px
Minimum 64 px 18 px

If the chart height is less than 56 px, all labels are hidden but the delta value is still visible.

With the minimum chart height, the labels are not shown.

Components

Labels

The delta micro chart has two main labels, which refer to two data points:

  • The main key value labels indicate the actual data points that are used to calculate the delta.
  • The delta value is the difference between these two data points and is displayed in a semantic color.

In the wide mode, the labels are placed before and after the chart. If the width is not sufficient to show all labels, the values are hidden first, followed by the date labels.
