Set Background Color Of The Chart When Chart Messages Are Shown

Recommended Posts

Hello Im trying to use the example of setting the background color for when a chart message shows up, but it still shows up as white??


var myChart = new FusionCharts("../js/FusionCharts/MSCombi3D.swf", "myChartId", "450", "450", "0", "1","#eeeecc");


myChart.configure("ChartNoDataText", "No data found for the current filter settings.");

Please use the method SetTransparent( isTransparent: boolean ).


This method makes the chart background ready to become transparent.


You will need to set bgAlpha, canvasBgAlpha etc. attributes of the <chart> element to finalize the transparency. The function accepts a Boolean parameter. Only when true is passed, the chart is prepared to have transparent background.



Ref. Code:

myChart.setDataXML( "<chart bgAlpha='0,0'><set value='213' /></chart>");


Hope this helps!

I think you misunderstod my question. Al I want to do is change the background color of the message box that appears when the chart data is null.


I am able to change the text...but I am unable to change from the default color of white. The example given does not seem to work...and neither does the configure


this example does not work:


<div id="chartContainer">FusionCharts will load here</div>

<script type="text/javascript">

var myChart = new FusionCharts("Column2D.swf", "myChartId", "300", "250", "0", "1", "#DCD8EB");


myChart.configure("ChartNoDataText", "Please select a record above");

Hi mimsc,


We had located an issue related to setting background color of chart messages. We will fix this in the next release.


But, as a work-around, till the next release, you can add a line of code along with your code (you sent in your last post) :




before, you call .render(...)


Can you please try this once and let us know?
