Dashboard report treemaps

A treemap is used to provide a visual representation of objects in either two or three categories, for example Not Run, Failed and Passed. The count for each category of object is shown in the treemap’s legend.

Treemap example.

Treemaps consist of two basic components:


Each node in the treemap represents a used object. The node’s color indicates to which category it belongs. The size of each node (relative to the other nodes) indicates the object’s usage count. Rest the mouse cursor in a node to display the node’s details.

Containers are used to group together objects with the same parent, and are displayed with a header row in the treemap. This treemap groups used objects by Functional Area. Rest the mouse cursor over a header row to display the container’s details.
