Chart Advanced Features: Pareto 3D

The following sections provide a list of available advanced attributes available for controlling and customizing 3D Pareto chart elements.

Note

This article contains documentation for advanced attributes which are third-party customizations that must be manually entered into the chart wizard. These articles were converted directly from the documentation provided by this third-party source. Not every attribute listed may be supported in Exago BI as some unexpected conflicts may occur in their integration within the application.

Functional Attributes

These attributes let you control a variety of functional elements on the chart. For example, you can opt to show/hide data labels, data values. You can also set chart limits and extended properties.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
animationTrue/False0/1This attribute gives you the option to control animation in your charts. If you do not want to animate any part of the chart, set this as 0.
animationDurationNumberIn secondsThis attribute sets the animation duration of the chart. `animationDuration` attribute is applicable only if animation of the chart is enabled.
Default value: 1 sec
paletteNumber1-5Exago uses the concept of Color Palettes. Each chart has 5 pre-defined color palettes which you can choose from. Each palette renders the chart in a different color theme.
paletteColorsTextList of hex color codes separated by commaWhile the `palette` attribute allows to select a palette theme that applies to chart background, canvas, font and tool-tips, it does not change the colors of data items (i.e., column, line, pie etc.). Using `paletteColors` attribute, you can specify your custom list of hex colors for the data items. The list of colors have to be separated by comma e.g., `”paletteColors”: “#FF0000, #0372AB, #FF5904…”`. The chart will cycle through the list of specified colors and then render the data plot accordingly. To use the same set of colors throughout all your charts in a web application, you can store the list of palette colors in your application globally and then provide the same in each chart JSON.
showLabelsTrue/False0/1It sets the configuration whether the x-axis labels will be displayed or not.
maxLabelHeightNumberIn PixelsThis attribute can be used to set the maximum height for the x-axis labels (data labels) excluding the x-axis title. If any label goes beyond this height, the label will be truncated. In stagger mode, the number of stagger lines will be reduced if they exceed this value.
labelDisplayText‘AUTO’, ‘WRAP’, ‘STAGGER’, ‘ROTATE’, ‘NONE’Using this attribute, you can customize the alignment of data labels (x-axis labels). There are 5 options: AUTO, WRAP, STAGGER, ROTATE or NONE. By default, this attribute is set to AUTO mode which means that the alignment of the data labels is determined automatically depending on the size of the chart. WRAP wraps the label text if it is too long to fit in one line. ROTATE rotates the labels vertically. STAGGER divides the labels into multiple lines.
useEllipsesWhenOverflowTrue/False0/1When enabled in auto mode, long data labels are truncated by adding ellipses to prevent them from overflowing the chart background. The default value is 1.
rotateLabelsTrue/False0/1This attribute lets you set whether the data labels will show up as rotated labels on the chart.
slantLabelsTrue/False0/1If you’ve opted to show rotated labels on chart, this attribute lets you set the configuration whether the labels will show as slanted labels or fully vertical ones.
labelStepNumber1 or aboveBy default, all the labels are displayed on the chart. However, if you’ve a set of streaming data (like name of months or days of week), you can opt to show every n-th label for better clarity. This attribute just lets you do so. When a value greater than 1 (n) is set to this attribute, the first label from left and every label at the n-th position from left will be displayed. e.g., a chart showing data for 12 months and set with `labelStep: 3` will show labels for January, April, July, and October. The rest of the labels will be skipped.
staggerLinesNumber2 or aboveIf you’ve opted for STAGGER mode as `labelDisplay`, using this attribute you can control how many lines to stagger the label to. By default, all labels are displayed in a single line.
showValuesTrue/False0/1Sets the configuration whether data values will be displayed along with the data plot on chart.
valuePositionText“ABOVE”, “BELOW”, “AUTO”If you’ve opted to show data values of the line series on the chart, this attribute lets you adjust the vertical alignment of data values with respect to dataplots. By default, this attribute is set to AUTO mode in which the alignment of each data value is determined automatically based on the position of each plot point. In ABOVE mode, data values are displayed above the plot points unless a plot point is too close to the upper edge of the canvas while in BELOW mode, data values are displayed below the plot points unless a plot point is too close to the lower edge of the canvas.
rotateValuesTrue/False0/1If you’ve opted to show data values, you can rotate them using this attribute.
placeValuesInsideTrue/False0/1If you’ve opted to show data values, you can show them inside the columns using this attribute. By default, the data values show outside the column.
showLimitsTrue/False0/1Whether to show chart limit values. If not specified `showYAxisValues` attribute overrides this value.
showDivLineValuesTrue/False0/1Whether to show div line values. If not specified `showYAxisValues` attribute overrides this value.
showSecondaryLimitsTrue/False0/1Whether to show secondary axis chart limit values.
showDivLineSecondaryValueTrue/False0/1Whether to show div line values for the secondary y-axis.
showShadowTrue/False0/1Whether to show column shadows.
adjustDivTrue/False0/1Exago automatically tries to adjust divisional lines and limit values based on the data provided. However, if you want to set your explicit lower and upper limit values and number of divisional lines, first set this attribute to false. That will disable automatic adjustment of divisional lines.
clickURLTextAnyThe entire chart can now act as a hotspot. Use this URL to define the hotspot link for the chart. The link can be specified in Exago Link format.
clickURLOverridesPlotLinksTrue/False0/1Sets whether the `clickURL` attribute (that sets a link to which the user is directed when the chart is clicked) overrides the `link` attribute (that sets a link to which the user is directed when a data plot is clicked).
Default value: 0 (`clickURL` does not override `link`)
maxColWidthNumberIn PixelsMaximum allowed column width
use3DLightingTrue/False0/1Whether to use advanced gradients and shadow effects to create better looking 3D charts.
setAdaptiveYMinTrue/False0/1This attribute lets you set whether the y-axis lower limit will be 0 (in case of all positive values on chart) or should the y-axis lower limit adapt itself to a different figure based on values provided to the chart.
showCumulativeLineTrue/False0/1Whether to add the overlay line series over column plot. The values of line series is automatically calculated by chart as cumulative % values. It is plotted against the secondary y-axis.
showLineValuesTrue/False0/1Whether to show values for the line series.
use3DLineShiftTrue/False0/1By default, when a line dataset is rendered over a column 3D dataset, the line dataset shifts in the z-dimension to give a 3D perspective. But, if you do not wish to add the perspective to the line dataset, you may set this attribute as 0.
useDataPlotColorForLabelsTrue/False0/1Uses the same data plot color for data labels.
hasRTLTextNumberAnyThis attribute, when set to `1`, indicates to the chart that the text (rendered on the chart) may contain RTL characters and the textual display has to be managed accordingly.
showPrintMenuItemTrue/False0/1Whether to show “Print Chart” item in the context menu of the chart? Even if you opt to hide the item in context menu, you can still opt to invoke `print()` JavaScript method of the chart to print the same.
themeText‘fusion’, ‘gammel’, ‘candy’, ‘ocean’, ‘zune’, ‘carbon’, ‘umber’This attribute changes the theme of the chart. There are 7 types of themes which have been made according to the different color combinations.

Using this attribute you can set whether to show those div line (y-axis) values or not. This attribute shows or hides the y-axis divisional lines and limits. The values of `showLimits` and `showDivLineValues`, if specified explicitly, overrides the value of this attribute.
yAxisValuesStepNumber1 or aboveBy default, all div lines show their values. However, you can opt to display every x(th) div line value using this attribute.
rotateYAxisNameTrue/False0/1If you do not wish to rotate y-axis name, set this as 0. It specifically comes to use when you’ve the special characters (UTF-8) in your y-axis name that do not show up in rotated mode.

Anchors

On line/area charts, anchors (or marker points) are polygons which appear at the joint of two consecutive line/area points. These are indicators to show the position of data points. The anchors handle tool tips and links for the data points. So, if you opt to not render anchors on a chart, the tool tips and links won’t function. You can, however, hide them by setting alpha to 0 and still enable tool tips and links. You can customize all the facets of anchors using the properties below.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
drawAnchorsTrue/False0/1Whether to draw anchors on the chart.
anchorSidesNumber3-20This attribute sets the number of sides the anchor will have. For e.g., an anchor with 3 sides will represent a triangle, with 4 it will be a square and so on.

Default value: 1

Divisional Lines & Grids

Using this set of attributes, you can control the properties of divisional lines, zero plane and alternate color bands. Divisional Lines are horizontal or vertical lines running through the canvas. Each divisional line signifies a smaller unit of the entire axis thus aiding the users in interpreting the chart. The zero plane is a 2D/3D plane that signifies the 0 position on the chart. If there are no negative numbers on the chart, you won’t see a visible zero plane. Alternate color bands are colored blocks between two successive divisional lines.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
numDivLinesNumberNumeric value > 0Number of horizontal axis division lines that you want on the chart.
divLineColorColorHex Color CodeColor for divisional lines.
divLineThicknessNumber1-5Thickness of divisional lines.

Number Formatting

Exago offers you a lot of options to format your numbers on the chart. Using the attributes below, you can control a myriad of options like: Formatting of commas and decimals Number prefixes and suffixes Decimal places to which the numbers will round to Scaling of numbers based on a user defined scale Custom number input formats

AttributeTypeValueDescription
formatNumberTrue/False0/1This configuration determines whether the numbers displayed on the chart will be formatted using commas, e.g., 40,000 if ‘formatNumber’: ‘1’; and 40000 if ‘formatNumber’: ‘0’;.
formatNumberScaleTrue/False0/1Configuration whether to add K (thousands) and M (millions) to a number after truncating and rounding it – e.g., if `formatNumberScale` is set to 1, 1043 will become 1.04K (with decimals set to 2 places). Same with numbers in millions – an M will be added at the end.
defaultNumberScaleTextAnyThe default unit of the numbers that you’re providing to the chart.
numberScaleUnitTextAnyUnit of each block of the scale.
numberScaleValueTextAnyRange of the various blocks that constitute the scale.
forceNumberScaleTrue/False0/1If a data value is less than the lowest given number is the number scale, this attribute forces the lower value of the `numberScaleUnit` to be applied to that data value. This attribute works only when `“formatNumberScale”: “1”` and the `defaultNumberScale` attribute is not defined.
For example, if `“numberScaleUnit”: “K, M”`, `“numberScaleValue”: “1000, 1000”`, and `“forceNumberScale”: “1”`, a data value of `400` will be rendered as `0.40K`.
scaleRecursivelyTrue/False0/1Whether recursive scaling should be applied.
maxScaleRecursionNumberAnyHow many recursions to complete during recursive scaling? -1 completes the entire set of recursion.
scaleSeparatorTextAnyWhat character to use to separate the scales that are generated after recursion?
numberPrefixTextCharacterUsing this attribute, you could add prefix to all the numbers visible on the graph. For example, to represent all dollars figure on the chart, you could specify this attribute to $ to show like $40000, $50000.
numberSuffixTextCharacterUsing this attribute, you could add a suffix to all the numbers visible on the graph. For example, to represent all figures quantified as per annum on the chart, you could specify this attribute to ‘/a’ to show like 40000/a, 50000/a.
decimalSeparatorTextCharacterThis attribute helps you specify the character to be used as the decimal separator in a number.
thousandSeparatorTextCharacterThis attribute helps you specify the character to be used as the thousands separator in a number.
thousandSeparatorPositionNumber This option helps you specify the position of the thousand separator.
inDecimalSeparatorTextCharacterIn some countries, commas are used as decimal separators and dots as thousand separators. In XML, if you specify such values, it will give an error while converting to number. So, Exago accepts the input decimal and thousand separator from user, so that it can convert it accordingly into the required format. This attribute lets you input the decimal separator.
inThousandSeparatorTextCharacterIn some countries, commas are used as decimal separators and dots as thousand separators. In XML, if you specify such values, it will give an error while converting to number. So, Exago accepts the input decimal and thousand separator from user, so that it can convert it accordingly into the required format. This attribute lets you input the thousand separator.
decimalsNumber0-10Number of decimal places to which all numbers on the chart will be rounded to.
forceDecimalsTrue/False0/1Whether to add 0 padding at the end of decimal numbers. For example, If you limit the maximum number of decimal digits to 2, a number like 55.345 will be rounded to 55.34. This does not mean that all numbers will be displayed with a fixed number of decimal places. For instance 55 will not be displayed as 55.00 and 55.1 will not become 55.10. In order to have fixed number of decimal places attached to all the numbers, set this attribute to 1.
sdecimalsNumber0-10Number of decimal places for the secondary axis to which all numbers on the cumulative line will be rounded to.
sforceDecimalsTrue/False0/1Whether to add 0 padding at the end of decimal numbers for the secondary axis. For example, If you limit the maximum number of decimal digits to 2, a number like 55.345 will be rounded to 55.34. This does not mean that all numbers will be displayed with a fixed number of decimal places. For instance 55 will not be displayed as 55.00 and 55.1 will not become 55.10. In order to have fixed number of decimal places attached to all the numbers, set this attribute to 1.

Using `anchorSides` attribute, you can specify the no. of sides for anchors. `Note : If the anchors are of circular shape, this attribute won’t be applied on it.`

Chart Padding & Margins

The following attributes help you control chart margins and paddings. Exago allows you to manually customize the padding of various elements on the chart to allow advanced manipulation and control over chart visualization. Padding in Exago is always defined in pixels, unless the attribute itself suggests some other scale (like `plotSpacePercent`, which configures the spacing using percentage values). You can also define the chart margins. Chart Margins refer to the empty space left on the top, bottom, left and right of the chart. That means, Exago will not plot anything in that space. It’s not necessary for you to specify any padding/margin values. Exago automatically assumes the best values for the same, if you do not specify the same.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
captionPaddingNumberIn PixelsThis attribute lets you control the space (in pixels) between the sub-caption and top of the chart canvas. If the sub-caption is not defined, it controls the space between caption and top of chart canvas. If neither caption, nor sub-caption is defined, this padding does not come into play.
xAxisNamePaddingNumberIn PixelsUsing this, you can set the distance between the top end of x-axis title and the bottom end of data labels (or canvas, if data labels are not to be shown).
yAxisNamePaddingNumberIn PixelsUsing this, you can set the distance between the right end of y-axis title and the start of y-axis values (or canvas, if the y-axis values are not to be shown).
yAxisValuesPaddingNumberIn PixelsThis attribute helps you set the horizontal space between the canvas left edge and the y-axis values or trend line values (on left/right side). This is particularly useful, when you want more space between your canvas and y-axis values.
labelPaddingNumberIn PixelsThis attribute sets the vertical space between the labels and canvas bottom edge. If you want more space between the canvas and the x-axis labels, you can use this attribute to control it.
valuePaddingNumberIn PixelsIt sets the vertical space between the end of columns and start of value textboxes. This basically helps you control the space you want between your columns/anchors and the value textboxes.
plotSpacePercentNumber0-80 (In Percent)On a column chart, there is spacing defined between two columns. By default, the spacing is set to 20% of canvas width. If you intend to increase or decrease the spacing between columns, you can do so using this attribute. For example, if you wanted all columns to stick to each other without any space in between, you can set `plotSpacePercent` to 0. Similarly, if you want very thin columns, you can set `plotSpacePercent` to its max value of 80.
chartLeftMarginNumberIn PixelsAmount of empty space that you want to put on the left side of your chart. Nothing is rendered in this space.
chartRightMarginNumberIn PixelsAmount of empty space that you want to put on the right side of your chart. Nothing is rendered in this space.
chartTopMarginNumberIn PixelsAmount of empty space that you want to put on the top of your chart. Nothing is rendered in this space.
chartBottomMarginNumberIn PixelsAmount of empty space that you want to put at the bottom of your chart. Nothing is rendered in this space.
canvasPaddingNumberIn PixelsAllows you to set empty space on the left and right side of columns on the chart canvas
canvasLeftPaddingNumberIn PixelsThis attribute lets you set the space between the left of the canvas border and the canvas of the chart. This attribute is particularly useful when your data plot gets clipped by the left border of the canvas. Using this attribute, you can control the amount of empty space between the chart left side and data plot which might get clipped.
canvasRightPaddingNumberIn PixelsThis attribute lets you set the space between the right of the canvas border and the canvas of the chart. This attribute is particularly useful when your data plot gets clipped by the right border of the canvas. Using this attribute, you can control the amount of empty space between the chart right side and data plot which might get clipped.
canvasTopPaddingNumberIn PixelsThis attribute lets you set the space between the top of the canvas border and the canvas of the chart. This attribute is particularly useful when your data plot gets clipped by the top border of the canvas. Using this attribute, you can control the amount of empty space between the chart’s top and data plot which might get clipped.
canvasBottomPaddingNumberIn PixelsThis attribute lets you set the space between the bottom of the canvas border and the canvas of the chart. This attribute is particularly useful when your data plot gets clipped by the bottom border of the canvas. Using this attribute, you can control the amount of empty space between the chart’s bottom and data plot which might get clipped.
canvasLeftMarginNumberIn PixelsThis attribute lets you control the space between the start of chart canvas and the start (x) of chart. In case of 2D charts, the canvas is the visible rectangular box. In case of 3D charts, the canvas box is the imaginary box around the 3D canvas. Using this attribute, you can control the amount of empty space between the chart left side and canvas left side. By default, Exago automatically calculates this space depending on the elements to be placed on the chart. However, if you want to over-ride this value with a higher value, you can use this attribute to specify the same. Please note that you cannot specify a margin lower than what has been calculated by the chart. This attribute is particularly useful, when you’ve multiple charts placed in a page and want all their canvas start position to align with each other – so in such a case, you can set same margin value (a value large enough that it doesn’t get rejected by chart owing to it being lower than the calculated value) for all such charts in the page.
canvasRightMarginNumberIn PixelsLike `canvasLeftMargin`, this attribute lets you set the space between end of canvas and end of chart.
canvasTopMarginNumberIn PixelsLike `canvasLeftMargin`, this attribute lets you set the space between top of canvas and top of chart.
canvasBottomMarginNumberIn PixelsLike `canvasLeftMargin`, this attribute lets you set the space between bottom of canvas and bottom of chart.

The data Object

In single-series charts, each instance of the `data` object represents a data value to be plotted on the chart. For a single-series chart, one instance of the `data` object looks as shown in the example below:


"data"[{
		"label": "Jan",
		"value": "10000"
	}]

Attributes of the `data` object are used to set and configure the data values for the chart.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
alphaNumber0 – 100This attribute determines the transparency of a data item. The range for this attribute is 0 to 100. 0 means complete transparency (the data item wont be shown on the graph) and 100 means opaque.
colorColorHex Color CodeIf you want to define your own colors for the data items on chart, use this attribute to specify color for the data item.
displayValueText If instead of the numerical value of this data, you wish to display a custom string value, you can specify the same here. Examples are annotation for a data item etc.
labelTextAnyThis attribute determines the label for the data item. The label appears on the x-axis of chart.

Note: The `label` attribute replaces the `name` attribute. Previously, either one of the attributes could be used to set the label. Support for the `name` attribute has been discontinued since v3.10.0.

linkTextAnyYou can define links for individual data items. That enables the end user to click on data items (columns, lines, bars etc.) and drill down to other pages. To define the link for data items, use the link attribute. You can define links that open in same window, new window, pop-up window or frames. Please see “Drill-Down > Using JavaScript Functions as Links” for more information. Also, you’ll need to Url Encode all the special characters (like ? and &) present in the link.
showLabelTrue/False0/1You can individually opt to show/hide labels of individual data items using this attribute.
showValueTrue/False0/1You can individually opt to show/hide values of individual data items using this attribute.

labelBorderDashGapNumberIn pixelsSets the gap between two consecutive dashes when the border around x-axis label is rendered using dashed lines.
labelLinkURLAnySets the link for each individual x-axis label.

Vertical Data Separator Lines

Vertical data separator lines help you separate data blocks. These lines run through the height of the chart, thereby segregating the data into two different blocks. Vertical lines are defined as shown in the example below:


"data": [{
			"label": "Grade 1",
		},
		{
			"vLine": "true",
			"label": "Appraisal"
		}]
	}]

You can configure the cosmetics of vertical separator lines using the following attributes:

AttributeTypeValueDescription
vLineTextAnySet this attribute to `true` to render a vertical data separator line.
colorColorHex Color CodeThis attribute defines the color of vertical separator line
thicknessNumberIn PixelsThickness in pixels of the vertical separator line.
alphaNumber0 – 100Alpha of the vertical separator line.
dashedTrue/False0/1Whether the vertical separator line should be rendered as dashed lines.

Default value: 0 (vertical separator line rendered using straight lines)

dashLenNumberIn pixelsSets the width of each dash when vertical separator line is rendered as dashed lines.
dashGapNumberIn pixelsSets the gap between consecutive dashes when vertical separator line is rendered as dashed lines.
labelText Label for the vertical separator line, if to be shown.

Note: The `label` attribute replaces the `name` attribute. Previously, either one of the attributes could be used to set the label. Support for the `name` attribute has been discontinued since v3.10.0.

showLabelBorderTrue/False0/1Whether to show a border around the vLine label.
linePositionNumber0-1Helps configure the position of vertical line i.e., if a vLine is to be plotted between 2 points Jan and Feb, user can set any position between 0 and 1 to indicate the relative position of vLine between these two points (0 means Jan and 1 means Feb). By default, it’s 0.5 to show in between the points.
labelPositionNumber0-1Helps configure the position of the vLine label by setting a relative position between 0 and 1. In vertical charts, 0 means top of canvas and 1 means bottom. In horizontal charts, 0 means left of canvas and 1 means right.
labelHAlignTextleft, center, rightHorizontal anchor point for the alignment of vLine label.
labelVAlignTexttop, middle, bottomVertical anchor point for the alignment of vLine label.

Trend-lines

Trend-lines are horizontal lines that aid in interpretation of data with respect to some pre-determined value. For example, if you are plotting the sales data for the current year, you might want to show the previous year’s average monthly sales as a trend indicator for ease of comparison. The `lines` object, child of the `trendlines` object is used to add trend-lines to a chart. Although the `line` object has to be defined within the `trendlines` object, the latter cannot be used to collectively customize trend-lines, because it does not have any attributes of its own. The attributes of the `lines` object, child of the `trendlines` object, are used to create and customize trend-lines for charts.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
startValueNumberNumeric ValueThe starting value for the trendline. Say, if you want to plot a slanted trendline from value 102 to 109, the `startValue` will be 102.
endValueNumberNumeric ValueThe ending y-axis value for the trendline. Say, if you want to plot a slanted trendline from value 102 to 109, the `endValue` will be 109. If you do not specify a value for `endValue`, it will automatically assume the same value as `startValue`.
displayValueTextAnyIf you want to display a string caption for the trend line by its side, you can use this attribute. Example: `displayValue=’Last Month High’`. When you don’t supply this attribute, it automatically takes the value of `startValue`.
colorTextHex Color CodeColor of the trend line and its associated text
isTrendZoneTrue/False0/1Whether the trend will be displayed as a line or a zone (fill-colored rectangle).
thicknessNumberIn PixelsIf you’ve opted to show the trend as a line, this attribute lets you define the thickness of trend line.
alphaNumber0 – 100Alpha of the trend line.
dashedTrue/False0/1Whether the trendline should be rendered as dashed lines.

Default value: 0 (trendline rendered using straight lines)

dashLenNumberIn pixelsSets the width of each dash when trendline is rendered as dashed lines.
dashGapNumberIn pixelsSets the gap between consecutive dashes when trendline is rendered as dashed lines.
parentYAxisTextP or SWhether to plot against the primary axis or secondary axis. In case of Pareto chart, since secondary axis is 0 – 100%, you’ll have to specify a value within this range.
toolTextText Custom tool-text for this trendline/zone.

Trend-lines (Chart level attributes)

Trend-lines are horizontal lines that aid in interpretation of data with respect to some pre-determined value. For example, if you are plotting the sales data for the current year, you might want to show the previous year’s average monthly sales as a trend indicator for ease of comparison. Cosmetics for all the trend-lines rendered can be attained using this set of attributes. Although there are set of attributes of the `line object`, used to create and customize trend-lines, these set of attributes effect all the trend-lines rendered in your chart.

AttributeTypeValueDescription
trendlineColorColorHex Color CodeSets color of all the trend lines and its associated text in the chart.
trendlineThicknessNumberIn PixelsIf you’ve opted to show the trend as a line, this attribute lets you define the thickness of all the trend lines in your chart.
trendlineAlphaNumber0 – 100Sets transparency for all the trend lines in your charts.
trendLineToolTextTextAnySets the tooltip text of the trend-line. It accepts macros, plain text, and HTML tags, as string.

Trend-lines Display Value Cosmetics

These attributes let you customize the text displayed with a trend-line.
Note: These attributes belong to the `chart` object and not to the `line` object (child of the `trendline` object). They are, therefore, applied to all trend-lines on your chart.

AttributeTypeValueDescription

trendValueFontSizeNumber Sets the font size for the trend-line display value.
trendValueFontBoldTrue/False0/1Sets whether the trend-line display value will be bold formatted.
Default value: 0 (not bold formatted)
trendValueFontItalicTrue/False0/1Sets whether the trend-line display value will be italicized.
Default value: 0 (not italicized)
trendValueBgColorColorHex Color CodeSets the background color for the trend-line display value.

Default value: 100
trendValueBorderAlphaNumber0 – 100Sets the transparency for the border around the trend-line display value.
Default value: 100
trendValueBorderPaddingNumberIn pixelsSets padding for the border around the trend-line display value.
trendValueBorderRadiusNumberIn pixelsSets the radius for the border around the trend-line display value.
