parseToolText is not defined after upgrade to FusionCharts XT

Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded from FusionCharts 3.2.1 to XT.  I followed the instructions here, including the instructions relate to FusionWidgets:



and am using the following line to render JS charts by default:




Previously, our system was set up to render Flash charts from XML data, and I haven't changed any of the existing code.


I'm now seeing the following error in the console, on a page that renders a number of angular gauges:


Uncaught ReferenceError: parseTooltext is not defined FusionCharts.HC.Widgets.js:193

p.series FusionCharts.HC.Widgets.js:193

p.chart FusionCharts.HC.Widgets.js:120

R.init FusionCharts.HC.js:521

p.fireWith jquery-1.10.2.js:3160

k jquery-1.10.2.js:8235

r jquery-1.10.2.js:8778


dash.renderXML (dashboard.js, line 40) calls chart.setDataXml() with the following xml:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<chart showLimits="0" showAboutMenuItem="0" chartRightMargin="8" lowerLimit="-100" clickURL="JavaScript:dash.change_metric(0);" gaugeEndAngle="0" tickValueStep="1" bgColor="ffffff" tickValueDistance="14" autoScale="0" palette="1" gaugeStartAngle="180" showTickValues="1" chartTopMargin="5" exportEnabled="1" chartLeftMargin="8" chartBottomMargin="5" showBorder="0" imageSaveURL="/data/image" exportFormats="PNG=Save as Image" decimals="1" showTickMarks="1" upperLimit="100">

    <color code="0cf20c" maxValue="62.2" minValue="14.5"/>

    <color code="FFFFFF" maxValue="100.0" minValue="62.2"/>



    <dial rearExtension="5" toolText=" 62.2" id="brand1" value="62.2"/>



    <point color="666666" alpha="100" thickness="2" startValue="7.21319806914" displayValue=" "/>




        <style bgColor="ffffff" type="font" name="defaultfont"/>



        <apply toObject="value" styles="defaultfont"/>

        <apply toObject="limitvalues" styles="defaultfont"/>





dashboard.js, line 227 is the line that calls this function.


The gauges are not being rendered; they just show up as blank boxes.  


Any idea where this error might be coming from or how to fix it?  Thanks!

This error comes due to toolText=" 62.2" in the <dial /> tag of your XML data. So by removing this toolText will render the Gauge as expected


However, regarding the issue of "toolText" attribute, we are looking into it and will get back to you once we get the updates.


Also, it seems you are using "setDataXml()" method in your code which is the deprecated one. So, we will suggest you to change the method to "setXMLData()".


Hope this helps!

Thanks Sashibhusan - yes, I removed the toolText attribute from our xml, and the gauges are now rendering correctly.  It looks like they still display a default tooltext on hover, with a value equal to the value charted in the gauge.


We'd still like to be able to set our own custom tooltext, of course.  Thanks for looking into this, will keep an eye out for updates.

It seems the issue of custom toolText is present with the current version, which will be fixed in the next release.


However, currently we are not able to commit any timeline for the next release. Further any updates on this, we will keep you posted.

Hi Krishna,


As mentioned earlier, it has been fixed internally. We are hoping the fix to be released in the month of June.


We would keep you posted.

Could you please upgrade your current version to the latest, i.e, FusionCharts v3.4 that includes a lot of new features and enhancements and addressed the issue posted in this forum post?

I hope this helps. Looking forward to your valuable feedback.
