Dashboards & Visualizations

Simple XML: dashedStroke (dashed line chart series)

After reading another member's tip on how to modify a brush to apply a dashed-line rather than solid I attempted to apply the following to my own chart:

<option name="charting.myBrush">dashedStroke</option>
<option name="charting.myBrush.dashSize">10</option>
<option name="charting.myBrush.dashSpacing">10</option>
<option name="charting.myBrush.color">0xFF0000</option>
<option name="charting.myBrush.thickness">5</option>
<option name="charting.myBrushPalette">list</option>
<option name="charting.myBrushPalette.brushes">[@myBrush]</option>
<option name="charting.chart.lineBrushPalette">@myBrushPalette</option>

The code referenced utilized "param" rather than "option". Is this an acceptable way to transfer this from advanced xml to simple xml? If so, what is missing to make my series include dashed lines?

Thank you.

For this specific case, these params refer to charting options in FlashCharts, and given that Simple XML does not support FlashCharts in Splunk 6, these will effectively be ignored by the dashboard rendering engine.

As far as customization of line charts within Simple XML goes, you can use show markers on the line charts.

<option name="charting.chart.showMarkers">true</option>

Thank you for this response. I did not realize what the default charting option was out of the box.
