Can't pass color attribute using setXML data

Recommended Posts

In the following the XMLdata is sent as a http GET from a webviewer in filemaker pro advanced 15. It is decoded by a php server script and returns the chart. However, whenever I try to pass any color params so that each segment of say a pie chart of stacked column can have the colour I select, the chart won't draw. If I remove the color attribute, it draws immediately.

Here's the xml data being sent that works - note that it accepts color in the last segment only:


"<set label=\"fruit\" value=\""& try::fruit&"\" />
<set label=\"grains\" value=\""& try::grains&"\"  />
<set label=\"dairy\" value=\""& try::dairy&"\" />
<set label=\"veges\" value=\""& try::veges&"\"  />
<set label=\"protein\" value=\""& try::protein&"\" />
<set label=\"goodXtra\" value=\""& try::goodXtra&"\"/>
<set label=\"badXtra\" value=\""& try::badXtra&"\" color=\"ff4c3b\" issliced=\"1\"/>"
If this is sent, it fails:
"<set label=\"fruit\" value=\""& try::fruit&"\" />
<set label=\"goodXtra\" value=\""& try::goodXtra&"\" color=\"5de07d\"/>
<set label=\"badXtra\" value=\""& try::badXtra&"\" color=\"ff4c3b\" issliced=\"1\"/>"
Can't see what the solution might be - certainly can't use the standard colours.  BTW, setting the colorpalette to the colours I want also doesn't work.
Here's the php code:
<title>tryPie after v3</title>
<?php include 'includes/fusioncharts.php' ?>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/fusioncharts.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/themes/fusioncharts.theme.fint.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
  var pData= <?php   echo  $_GET["data"] ?>;
     var allServesChart = new FusionCharts({
        'type': 'pie3d',
        'renderAt': 'allServes-container',
        'width': '400',
        'height': '320',
        'dataFormat': 'xml',
        'dataSource': '<chart></chart>'
  <div id="allServes-container">A pie chart should load here!</div>

Yes - afaict it's up to date. My syntax is correct and I can adjust most things guided by the on-line docs. Colours do NOT work. Tried passing and decoding a json object. Chart works, colours fail. ('hard wiring' all the colors and data statement works fine of course, but that defeats the purpose of using setXMLdata).

Show stopper unfortunately.
