Creating bubble markers with different colors and transparency

In QlikMaps 2.2.1, you can also use RBG-formatted colors, as well as transparency/opacity. See below for more information.

Single color markers

Introduced in QlikMaps 2.0, autocolor will create a single-color marker for your points, which you can configure with IF statements; it is very simple to use.

From the Marker Icons template in a new Points object:

Example 3: Create a red bubble marker
 ='autocolor,#ff0000'
 ='autocolor,RGB(255,0,0)'

New in QlikMaps 2.2.1, you can add in a transparency parameter that will alter the transparency of each marker, on an individual basis.

From the Marker Icons template in a new Points object:

Example 5: Create a semitransparent red bubble marker
='autocolor,#a8ff0000'
='autocolor,ARGB(230,255,0,0) 

Autocolor gradients

Introduced in QlikMaps 2.0, autocolor will create a color gradient for your points; it is very simple to use.

From the Marker Icons template in a new Points object:

Example 4: Create a bubble marker gradient from orange -> blue -> red -> green  
  ='autocolor,orange,blue,red,green'

Autocolor with COLORMIX

New in QlikMaps 2.2.1, you can use the QlikView native COLORMIX function to control both color and transparency.

From the Marker Icons template in a new Points object:

Example 6: Use the ColorMix function to create a red to green gradient of bubbles
='autocolor,' &
 if(Count(Distinct TOTAL [Dimension]) = 1,
		LightGreen(),
		ColorMix1(
		   (sum([x]) - min(total aggr(sum([x]), [Dimension]))) / (max(total aggr(sum([x]), [Dimension])) - min(total aggr(sum([x]), [Dimension]))),
		   LightRed(),
		   LightGreen()
		)
	 )

Image files

You can also use image files of bubble markers to differentiate your points. See below:
