Working with Charts

The Chart element in the Palette view lets you easily add charts to your reports. In Jaspersoft Studio, you can render charts in a report two different ways. You can use the data coming from the main dataset or use a subdataset. This allows you to include many different charts in one document without using subreports.

When you generate a report, chart data is collected and stored within the chart's dataset.

The chart types are:

Time period
Time series
High low
