How to adjust chart column width?

Motivator

Hi,

I have the below panel. What I'm looking to do is to make the columns in this graph "skinny" (5 pixels or less) so that it can represent an event in time. I've seen answers on Splunk answers that refer to advanced XML (haven't done this before), or sprites (also haven't done this before). If I need to use one of those methods could you walk me thru how?

Try playing around with the charting.chart.columnSpacing setting for the bar chart.

For example, I opened up the source for a bar chart with overlay that I had set up. By adding the 'charting.chart.columnSpacing' option and setting it really high (100 in my case) it crunched down the bards to nearly a single pixel depending on how wide I have my browser window scaled within my desktop's resolution.

....        
<option name="charting.legend.labelStyle.overflowMode">ellipsisMiddle</option>
        <option name="charting.legend.placement">right</option>
        <option name="charting.chart.columnSpacing">100</option>
      </chart>
....

It actually determines the space between the bars in the charts. is there a way we can actually set the width of a column?
