Coloring

Treemap provides the capability to color its tiles by associating dimension values/measures and specified colors. You can choose whether to use a global color scheme to provide consistent colors for identical values or specify a local color scheme for each dashboard item. To learn more about coloring concepts common for all dashboard items, see Coloring.

By default, the Treemap dashboard item colors its tiles in the following way.

  • If the Treemap contains only measures (the Values section), values corresponding to different measures are colored by different hues.
  • If the Treemap contains arguments (the Arguments section), values corresponding to the first argument are colored by different hues.

If necessary, you can change the default behavior. For example, the image below shows the Treemap dashboard item whose measures and argument values are painted with the same color.

To change the default coloring behavior, go to the Coloring section of the Treemap's Options menu.

Note

You can change the default palette used to color Treemap tiles. For this, go to the Color Scheme section of the Treemap's Options menu.
