Dashboard Chart Properties Not Working ?

Contributor

v4.3.1 linux

i created a simple dashboard as below. however, when i try to add some colorizing charting options they do not seem to apply to the chart. bug, or am i doing something wrong? the 1st chart shows up as blue colums on black background with no text. also, when i edit the visualization via the web gui and choose one of the stacked column styles it wont stack the graph. why?

using properties from here
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/4.3.1/Developer/CustomChartingConfig-FontColorBrushPalet...

also, i dont know how to post code sample here as this forum mucks up the chars, so i tries to escape some stuff but this forum then adds chars, very very annoying!

These options are unfortunately currently not supported in the Javascript charting module that is used. More information here: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/4.3.1/Developer/AdvancedCharting
