Moving on to the Steps screen, the first component you build is the bar chart. In this video, Andy starts with simple rectangles and demonstrates how a bar chart can be made with relative ease.
- [Narrator] In this movie we are going to…move our attention to the steps screen…and we're going to build this chart that we see here.…Let's just zoom in…and see what we can do here.…It's a series of rectangles.…We've got this little bar here…which I guess shows us where we've reached our goal,…a few of these will mean we've surpassed it.…Maybe some we haven't actually hit the mark…and so what we can do is start by creating these rectangles.…
What we have, a series of rectangles…and these indicate how many steps that we've done.…These are the days of the week across the top here…and this little marker is showing as the goal…that we have already predefined.…And so when a rectangle is above the line…it means we've surpassed that goal.…Let's begin by creating the rectangles,…M on the keyboard and I'm going to…drag out a rectangle, like so.…
What we can do is press T.…Click into here and just press T…because is going to be for Thursday.…That size is a bit too large.…I'm going to make sure it's centered as well.…Bring that down…
