Set a Default Color in Single Value Panel if Trendline is not displayed

Path Finder

I want to disable the varying red-green color indication by trend, and set it into a static color (green) if the trendline is not displaying at all in the panel. This happens when the timespan is less than the date range. For the example below, I only set it to three months, but when I set the date range into 2 years+, the sparkline will appear in the Sales (Yearly) panel.

The timespan of the single value chart has 1 year.

The query is:
| timechart span=1year sum(amount) as Sales

(the other panels have a span of 1 day, 1 week, and 1 month)

The Sales(Yearly) has no sparkline so I think it must have no red or green color indication. Is there a possible way to detect the appearance of the sparkline to trigger a token that will change the color of the panel?

@marxsabandana for the final Single Value panel you can disable the color directly from UI Edit, or through SimpleXML

<option name="useColors">0</option>

Is this what you are looking for?

Sorry, but actually what I really meant is to disable the varying red-green color indicators. Like, if a sparkline is not displayed below the single-value, the panel will be defaulted to color green.

Hi @marxsabandana Trendline won't show when the result has only 1 row. So you can maybe check result count on search:done event and set chart options accordingly?
