Add a title to the JSChart or FlashChart?

Path Finder

Is it possible to add a title to a JSChart or FlashChart module? I have read the JSChart/FlashChart documentation and I have tried including a HTML module within the chart module or within its parent HiddenChartFormatter or HiddenPostProcess modules, which can result in the title going to the right place, but also results in Javascript errors ("ReferenceError: Can't find variable: Sideview").

If you're using advanced XML, wrap your chart in a HiddenChartFormatter module and set a parameter

<param name="chartTitle">Name of your chart goes here</param>

If you want a larger title and the chart is in its own group in the page, wherever you have set the layoutPanel="panel_row1_col1" add an attribute like group="Name of your chart goes here"

Note the error message that you're seeing is simply because you've forgotten to put the required SideviewUtils module into your view.

It says this on the Sideview Utils homepage as the first thing to know, but it gets missed a lot.

After that you'll be able to use the HTML module as your header and although the built in titles are fine most of the time, I think you'll be happier having the more open more easy to manipulate HTML module.

It's common for people to think the common Sideview modules like HTML and Search are Splunk modules but they're from Sideview Utils. np.

Interesting. I guess I do have SideviewUtils installed. Thanks, I'll try using that too.

Thanks. I neglected to look up all the parameters that HiddenChartFormatter takes, ended up focusing on just JSChart and FlashChart.
