Custom format column / tooltip via IronPython or TERR
I have a visualization that plots from a data table that is being replaced by a TERR function every time a marking is changed. The problem is that my custom formatting for the table columns is lost every time the table is replaced. Basically I want a few of my tooltips based on my columns to have a custom number format that I've defined. Every time I remark, the table is replaced, and the formatting is lost. I've thought about a few different solutions:
- Format the table in TERR using some kind of attr($map) function, and the formatting should be inherited by the tooltip
- Format the table columns in Python - but the formatting is not being inherited by the tooltip
- Format the tooltip directly - no idea how to do this.
Anyone have any ideas?
Here's the column formatting code:
formatter=DataType.Real.CreateLocalizedFormatter() formatter.Category=NumberFormatCategory.Number formatter.DecimalDigits=0 formatter.GroupSeparatorEnabled = 1 # not sure what this does # I actually want to apply a Custom Short number format that I've defined for cc in table.Columns: if cc.Name == "myCol": cc.Properties.Formatter=formatter
