Dashboards & Visualizations

How can I change the charting legend placement?

Builder

I have a dashboard panel as below

alt text

As you can see on the color representatio(MSSP ..)n since the words are large they aren't visible on the dashboard. Instead I want to display those 3 on the top instead of right. In-order to do that where exactly should I have to modify the html tags.

there are a couple of options for this.

you can edit the xml source code in the dashboad and use

<option name="charting.legend.labelStyle.overflowMode">ellipsisNone</option>
<option name="charting.legend.placement">top</option>

Otherwise, you can do this in the UI by pressing on the little paintbrush format button at the top of the chart/panel and on the left of the new window, there should be a toggle button called Legend. when you click on that, there should be legend options, such as placement, to display or hide it, etc.

EDIT:
after re-reading, if you're dealing with an HTML dashboard, go into the code and find the element you need. if you named the panel, you should be able to find the title. figure out what id your chart is.
for example:

 <div class="panel-element-row">
                <div id="element2" class="dashboard-element chart" style="width: 100%">
                    <div class="panel-head">
                        <h3>header</h3>
                    </div>
                    <div class="panel-body"></div>
                </div>
            </div>

i needed to find later on in the code element2

then you see something like this towards the bottom:

var element2 = new ChartElement({
            "id": "element2",
            "charting.drilldown": "all",
            "charting.axisLabelsX.majorLabelStyle.rotation": "0",
            "charting.legend.placement": "top",
            ........

and that's where you change the legend placement/ellipsis

If you'd like the legend to appear above the chart, rather than to the right of it, you should put the dashboard into Edit mode, click on the "Format Visualization" icon, which looks like a paintbrush, and select "Legend" from the options at the left side of the pop-up. From the "Legend Position" drop-down, select "Top". Here's a screenshot:
