Intro

This article describes the three types of scrolling direction for charts.

Horizontal

The main set of values is displayed horizontally. When width of the page doesn’t fit the entire set of values, you need to scroll horizontally to see them.

Examples:

Line chart

Vertical

The main set of values is displayed vertically. When the height of the page doesn’t fit the entire set of values, you need to scroll vertically to see them.

Examples:

Bidirectional

There is no main direction. Horizontal and vertical axes have the same weight.

This type of chart scrolling must be managed on a case-by-case basis.
