Developing for Splunk Enterprise

splunkjs charts with legend maximumWidth property has no effect



I'm instantiating some ChartViews using splunkjs. I've got the following properties specified:

"charting.axisLabelsX.majorLabelStyle.rotation" = "-90";
"charting.axisTitleX.text"                      = "Time";
"charting.axisTitleX.visibility"                = "collapsed";
"charting.axisTitleY.text"                      = "Subscriber";
"charting.chart"                                = "area";
"charting.chart.nullValueMode"                  = "connect";
"charting.chart.stackMode"                      = "stacked";
"charting.legend.labelStyle.overflowMode"       = "ellipsisEnd";
"charting.legend.labelStyle.minimumWidth"       = "1000";
"charting.legend.labelStyle.maximumWidth"       = "1000";

Most of these work. Sadly, the changes to legend width have no effect.

Is there any work-around for this? I'd like to have two charts that are above/below, to have their legends lined up.

Those options do not appear to be supported. I have both the SplunkJS code for versions 1.1 and 1.4, and those properties are not present. I think they were supported in the old FlashCharts or AdvancedXML components, but those are deprecated.


Thanks. The second part of my question looks for a work-around. I don't think I can really hack this in since the charts/legends are pure SVG.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You are probably correct. The highcharts/svg stuff is not really friendly to such hacks in my experience. You could try to work something out to dig into the CSS hierarchy and set some kind of width parameter, but that would be pretty brittle.
