Great idea for labels

Recommended Posts

Hi, I use FusionCharts v3 and it's great! Keep up the good work!




One thing I ran into today was the labels. I wanted to display both % value and value, so something like this:




Available (23K), 23%


Unavailable (76K), 76%




Currently, i just have the label be "Available ($number)" and it prints out that automatically. It would be great if you had a system like...




%p = percent value


%n = numeric value




so I can make the label... "Available (%n), %p"


or even something like... "%n Available, that's %p!!"




And you can add more %[x] things if you can think of it. %c for color, i guess. it would show a cube with the color in it or something.

Hi Bubbler,




It's an interesting concept, but I think it's more of a shortcut for something you could do already quite easily by hand. I don't think there should be too much of this kind of logic in FusionCharts itself - that's what you're using PHP/.Net/etc for.




With the tooltips you can pass in whatever you like as a string, so you could just prepare the string beforehand in your serverside code and get what you're after. I've done the following myself in the past:





output.AppendFormat("", HttpContext.Current.Server.HtmlEncode(row["title"].ToString()), percent.ToString(), double.Parse(row["absolute"].ToString()));





This is leveraging the StringBuilder in .Net, of which "output" is an instance, but that's not important here. Note instead how the "toolText" attribute value is built out of both a percentage value (token 1), and the absolute value (token 2), separated with a hyphen.




This kind of thing will always be much more flexible in your application code, not the FusionCharts built-in logic.
