FusionTime allows you to set the visual appearance, behavior and intelligence aspects of the time-series chart using themes.

In this article, we will discuss how to apply themes to a time-series chart.

In a theme file, you can centralize the following aspects of a chart:

  • Visual appearance (data plot color, font color, font size, etc.)
  • Behavior (hover effects for data plots)
  • Intelligence (applying different colors to the positive and negative data plots in all column 2D charts that use the theme)

FusionTime ships with the following predefined themes:

  • fusion
  • gammel
  • candy
  • umber

A time series chart showcasing the 3 themes mentioned above is given below:
