Module 49 – SandDance


Key Takeaways

  • Every data element is always representing on the screen (Up to 10,000 row).
  • Animations show the transition between different views of the data.


In this SandDance we’re analyzing the population of different world cities.

  • Under the Format paintbrush there is only one customization available for the SandDance.
  • By turning off the Presentation property that gives you the capability to really dig deeper into the configuration.  That additional configuration is described in the video above.


The majority of this visual is configured from within the design surface after turning off presentation.

In addition to these properties you have a set of settings that appears on every visual to adjust the background color, add a border around the visual and lock the aspect ratio.
