HiddenChartFormatter seriesColors: values being passed to child?

Path Finder

Hi,

I have two charts which gather data (using PostProcess) from the same main search. In each I specify 3 seriesColor values using the HiddenChartFormatter module.
However, I may have 1, 2 or 3 series depending on the data - the color values seems to pass down from one chart to the next.

Consider both charts having colors, red, green and blue specified (in that order), and my charts only has data for 2 series. The first chart will show red and green, then the 2nd chart will show blue and red, almost as if the blue color has come from the previous chart.

My current solution is to specify all possible series names and colors using the charting/legends.labels with the charting.seriesColors, however this shows the series in the legend even if there is no data, so this is not great.

Has anyone seen this before?

Example XML structure:

<module name="Search">
<param name="search">some search</param>

<module name="PostProcess">
    <param name="search"> some sub search</param>
    <module name="HiddenChartFormatter">
        <param name="charting.seriesColors">[0xFFF0000, 0x00FF00, 0x0000FF]</param>
        <module name="FlashChart"></module>                            
    </module>
</module> <!-- PostProcess --> 
<module name="PostProcess">
    <param name="search">  some other sub search</param>            
    <module name="HiddenChartFormatter">
        <param name="charting.seriesColors">[0xFFF0000, 0x00FF00, 0x0000FF]</param>
        <module name="FlashChart"></module>                            
    </module>
    </module> <!-- PostProcess --> 

</module> <!-- Search -->

Revered Legend

Can you try with following instead of charting.seriesColors...

<param name="charting.fieldColors">{"nameofSeries1":0xFFF0000,"nameofSeries2":0x00FF00,"nameofSeries3":0x0000FF}</param>
