adding descriptive text to a chart on a dashboard

Contributor

Can I add descriptive text to a chart on a dashboard. If yes - how. The only way I can get this work is by adding a new row. I really want the text to be with the chart.

Try using the <html> tag in your xml above your chart (works in basic xml), and add your text to it. The html tag is just a way to imbed html into the dashboard, which is fine for adding instructions or descriptions.

eg.

<row>
<html><p><strong>Your bold text here.</strong> Your normal text here.</p><html>
</row>

Your second html tag is missing a / to end the htlm code.

Did not shift for me.. This was a fine solution in my opinion..

This will add a new panel with the text. The chart shifts to right.

Yes you can but you need to move to advanced xml views. I recommend you download the "UI Examples" app and look at advanced_intro4 for examples of this in use.

Advanced xml is now depreciated. HTML is now possible in simple xml as stated above
