Updates

Typeahead Support on Function Data Property

Typeahead returns results based on the function’s returned data.
Typeahead returns results based on the function’s returned data.

Autocompletion is now available on functions that return custom response data. Typeahead suggestions are available on the .data property of a function node.

This also works for nested arrays and map! So you should still see typeahead suggestions on an element when using a map like so: exampleFunction.data.map((element) => { element.autoCompletionSuggestion})

Note: If type ahead suggestions aren’t appearing, the function most likely must be called first. Clicking the “Test function” button or calling it in the console with with exampleFunction() will populate the results.

Chart Updates — Combo Charts

Updates to different chart properties including: axis title, legend, and dimension color.
Updates to different chart properties including: axis title, legend, and dimension color.

Charts now support combo charts using any mix of lines, bars, and scatter across multiple dimensions. In addition, we’ve updated a handful of configuration options for greater chart customizability including support for different left and right vertical axis scales.

Additional Updates
