Data Source Object

A dataSource object contains the information about the data source of the report.


filenameStringoptional The URL to JSON or CSV file. Also can be the URL to the server-side script generating the data.
fieldSeparatorStringoptional Specific field delimiter for CSV data. By default, WebDataRocks can parse comma-separated values or semicolon-separated values. For all other cases, fieldSeparator should be specified.
dataStringoptional Property to specify JSON data. WebDataRocks supports a certain kind of JSON data – array of objects, where each object is an unordered collection of KEY/VALUE pairs.


Connect to a CSV file in WebDataRocks reporting tool:

var pivot = new WebDataRocks({
	container: "#wdr-component",
	toolbar: true,
	height: 395,
	report: {
		dataSource: {
			filename: ""
