This Chart of the Month was requested by a subscriber after the BA027 series premiered last month. As we mentioned in the series tutorial, the capsules can also be used as containers – like capsules that contain medicine. Here is an example of how you might use the capsule as a container in a business application.
There are a lot of individual fields in this chart, so the animation scheme is a little complicated. Download the animated example to review the scheme. If you create the animation in sequence, it is not a complicated as it seems. You can also use the downloadable animation example as your jumping off place – just replace the messages with your own.
