After the join I can see all my data in the attributes of the card but when I want to select statistics in the tab style to categorize, I don't see them. I see that the real type variables and not those of type string. Are there any parameters to be changed?


après avoir fait la jointure je vois bien l'ensemble de mes données dans les attributs de la carte mais quand je veux sélectionner les statistiques dans l'onglet style pour catégoriser, je ne les vois pas. Je ne vois que les variables de type real et pas celles de type string. Y a t-il un paramètre à modifier?

Est le problème que dans Couche->Propriéteś->Style->Catégorisé tu ne peux pas voire aucunes variables de type string dans 'Colonne' ou seulement aucunes variables de type string de la jointure? – Torsti Apr 3 '13 at 10:25
is this a duplicate of… ? – underdark Apr 3 '13 at 11:51
@underdark I thinks it's probably about having accidentally chosen graduated instead of categorized, that would explain why only numeric attributes from the join are visible. What is the language policy on gis-se? – Torsti Apr 3 '13 at 12:06
We had a short discussion in…. I think we should just post a translation and get on with the question. – underdark Apr 3 '13 at 12:28
quand je veux créer des classes dans l'onglet style en choisissant "gradué" dans le menu déroulant (et non "catégorisé" comme j ai écris par erreur, – user16771 Apr 3 '13 at 14:47

Graduated renderer is only available for numeric fields. I does not support text values. That's why you cannot even chose them in the drop-down list.
