Let's Tour Art Data

1. Visualizations

Data visualizations are defined as "the creation and study of the visual representation of data".

The 'visualizations' view is where you will configure your chart or table's basic options such as 'What type of visualization is this going to be? Table or Chart?', 'What type of Table or Chart?,' 'What template would you like to use with this visualization?', 'What dataset would you like to use to populate the visualization?'. You get the picture. The visualization is what ties everything together.

Visualization Type - Tables

  • Create 'Static Table' - a basic table without sorting, filtering or pagination
  • Create 'Dynamic Table' - a table with sorting, filtering, and pagination
  • Populate table with custom dataset - SQL Query, HTML, CSV file
  • Populate table with SQL Query for the following databases: MySQL - Joomla Database, MySQL - Other Database, PostgreSQL, MSSQL (mssql extension), MSSQL (sqlsrv extension), Oracle, Access, SQLite, Firebird, Informix, Foxpro, ADO, Sybase, FrontBase, DB2, SAP DB, Netezza, LDAP, ODBC, ODBTP
  • Use the string {JOOMLAUSERID} in your SQL Query to add the logged in user's user_id to your query.
  • Populate table with ArtData dataset - use the quick, easy 'data' view to create a dataset by entering your data into a convenient spreadsheet-like application.
  • Completely style your table with a custom theme using the 'templates' view
  • Restrict table access level
  • Show or hide table title
  • Convert links and images automatically or by pattern
  • Use rel="nofollow" on links
  • Open links in a new window
  • Control default pagination limit
  • Control pagination limit choices

Visualization Type - Charts

  • Create 'Bar Chart'
  • Create 'Line Chart'
  • Create 'Area Chart'
  • Create 'Stacked Bar Chart'
  • Create 'Stacked Area Chart'
  • Create 'Pie Chart'
  • Create 'Percent Bar Chart'
  • Create 'Percent Area Chart'
  • Create 'Donut Chart'
  • Create 'Step Up Bar Chart'
  • Create 'Polar Area Chart'
  • Create 'Waterfall Chart'
  • Charts load with cool data population animation
  • Populate chart with custom dataset - SQL Query, HTML, CSV file
  • Populate chart with SQL Query for the following databases: MySQL - Joomla Database, MySQL - Other Database, PostgreSQL, MSSQL (mssql extension), MSSQL (sqlsrv extension), Oracle, Access, SQLite, Firebird, Informix, Foxpro, ADO, Sybase, FrontBase, DB2, SAP DB, Netezza, LDAP, ODBC, ODBTP
  • Populate chart with ArtData dataset - use the quick, easy 'data' view to create a dataset by entering your data into a convenient spreadsheet-like application.
  • Use the string {JOOMLAUSERID} in your SQL Query to add the logged in user's user_id to your query.
  • Completely style your chart with a custom theme using the 'templates' view
  • Restrict chart access level
  • Show or hide chart title
  • Control chart orientation - horizontal or vertical
  • Set chart title
  • Set chart sub-title
  • Set horizontal axis label
  • Set horizontal axis sub-label
  • Set vertical axis label
  • Set vertical axis sub-label
  • Toggle chart download
  • Set chart download label

2. Templates

The 'templates' view is where you can customize nearly everything about the way a table or chart looks including color palette, responsive width %, class modifiers, text alignment, padding, border and more. Art Data allows you to customize pretty much everything about the look of the data visualization. Templates you create can be added to a visualization to easily apply a certain style.

You don't need to have any CSS knowledge whatsoever to use our template builder to style a table or chart template.

Template Type - Tables

  • Create, edit 'template' for a table - style everything about your table
  • Set table class modifiers - condensed, striped, hover
  • Customize table header styles - text align, padding, font size, font weight, text color, border
  • Customize table cell styles - text align, padding, border, striped background color
  • Customize search filter input - height, width, padding, background, border, border radius, text color as well as onfocus styles
  • Customize search filter button - padding, background, text color, border
  • Customize active pagination - background, text color
  • Customize non-active pagination - background, text color
  • Customize focus & hover pagination - background, text color

Template Type - Charts

  • Create, edit 'template' for a chart - style everything about your chart
  • Control main chart background, opacity, width and height
  • Set axis lines color
  • Toggle tick marks
  • Set tick mark interval
  • Set axis padding
  • Control chart color palette

3. Data

The 'data' view is where you can create a dataset by entering your data into a web spreadsheet application that is built right into Art Data. The data view was specifically created for the purpose of easy data population because not everyone knows how to write an SQL Query. Create datasets specifically for tables or if you're using a chart then you can select either single series data or multiple series data. Formatting data for populating a visualization has never been easier.

  • Create, edit 'dataset' for a table or chart
  • For chart datasets choose between single series data or multi series data
  • Enter your data into easy spreadsheet
  • Create spreadsheet rows, columns
  • Remove spreadsheet rows, columns
  • Preview how a dataset will look when it populates a visualization

4. Deploying a Visualization on your Joomla Site

Art Data consists of a component, module, and plugin so you can deploy a table or chart on your site in whatever way you prefer.


The component administrator is for creating and managing your visualizations. One way to deploy a visualization on the front end is to create a new menu item of type 'Art Data Visualization'. This will use the component output to display your table or chart and using this method the visualization will be the main part of the webpage.


Another way to deploy a visualization is to use the content plugin. Using this method you can write [artdata id="1"] using the shortcode provided for you in the component administrator and you can put this shortcode anywhere on your site and it will be transformed into a visualization.


The last way to deploy a visualization is to use the module. Simply create a new module instance and select the visualization you'd like to display from the module administrator area, select a template position where you'd like the table or chart to show up and you're done. Three great ways to deploy an Art Data Visualization on your Joomla 3.x site.

I used this to: Nothing because I can't. It doesn't work.
Owner's reply: Hello Intelligencia, it's disappointing to learn that you had such a negative experience with Art Data. Reviews like this don't help either one of us get closer to achieving our goals and I'm afraid they don't help other users to make an informed decision about whether Art Data is suitable for their web software use cases. We've had hundreds of satisfied users and a zero rating calling the software useless just doesn't help us to improve and it doesn't tell anyone what you had an issue with. If you need help I'd encourage you to submit a support ticket or contact us directly at so we can help you.
If you're just after some basic charts then this component is OK, but their styling ability is very limited and it's layout is not flexible.
Ease of use
It's fairly easy to use for basic needs.
Support is pretty poor. Their responses are slow (weeks) and they don't address all your questions. Promised updates we never delivered.
Documentation is OK.
Value for money
Good for basic use, but not for any more than that.
I used this to: I was going to use this to add a couple of donut charts to a site. Because of issues they were not able to resolve I went to a different solution. I persisted with their support for 2 months before looking at another solution.

Great Extention!

Posted on 21 July 2016
Provides an outstanding searchable table. We are using it to provide voters with 10,000 + listings
Ease of use
On the front end it works perfect, but don't leave blank columns and be sure your Column Headings are filled in.
I did have a little trouble installing (see Ease of Use above) but I got prompt, courteous support. Very pleased with the support!!
A little difficult for me to follow. Could be a little more detailed for Dummies like me ;-)
Value for money
Worth every cent it costs.
I used this to: Voters List

Hopeful, but not quite there

Posted on 21 January 2016
It has promise, but lacking documentation on their website to fully utilize this
Ease of use
Using plugins are pretty simple, but again lacking documentation on the authors website it makes it difficult to troubleshoot
Value for money
If you are lucky enough to get past the plethora of javascript errors on the backend and get the plugins to work
I used this to: attempted to use this for data reports generated from CSV files
Did exactly what I needed.
Ease of use
Very easy. Sample codes on the site is a great start, adding the samples to the plugin page in the component would be my only recommendation
Didn't realize it came with support in the beginning but a quick email to the publisher got quick support and had me up and running same day.
Could use more, but is a really good start. Could use more troubleshooting such as what could be wrong if you're seeing 'this'.
Value for money
Worth every penny. One of the best investments I've made.
I used this to: Pull field data from the latest form entry to update the name of the winners and the date of the win in a sentence on a contest page. Ability to update page information via simple form entry, w/o opening and update each one manually. Huge time saver.
I needed a plugin in order to build a gallery with a magnifier on the enlarged image. Te Artdata component was the one that was close to what I wanted. I bought te component an implemented te code into another plugin.

When I didn't get it completely right the team responded on my questions swiftly. When it was finished it seemed that in certain browsers the loading had some hickups. After sending my question the team updated the component and it worked perfectly afterwards. In addition, they even sended the updated files as a zipped component, ready for install. brilliant.
We have been using this set of plugins for 3 years now and it has been great. Very clean, efficient and easy to install and use.

We just had a jQuery conflict and the support team has been extremely responsive. They spent 2 days with us to try to figure out the issue and resolve it. We got it done. Very awesome and probs to the team.

Low cost, high quality. Thank you guys.
Purchased the ArtData extension and had issues running it on my site - these guys went in and fixed it within hours. Then I was suggesting some formatting attributes, they immediately followed up with a full set of configuration options through the plugin attributes!

Awesome, best service I've had so far...definitely worth it!
There are so many possibilities in this product, that it's mindboggling, the difficulties in implementation is no so much how to get it working, but more a question of which solution you want.

There's not much that this thing can't do, extraction directly from sql, into tables, graphs, csv files to nice figures and a lot of other stuff. Very versatile, and nice.

Support is in a league of its own, very responsive, and very helpfull.
Can't recommend this product highly enough and the support has been second to none. The issue I had wasn't even with the product it was with my template. Support re-configured there component to work in my template - 1st class support!!!
