When using the setDataXML as an option for data, is there a specific requirment to build the XML data in a single line without any Crt or tabs?




When I'm looking on the XML in all examples all are like:












and when it is inside the setDataXML like that:






WHAT IS THE RIGHT WAY and is there any differece????

Hi Yossi,

Due to javascript programming when you provide xml data by setDataXML method then XML data must be in a single line without any Crt or tabs. If data comes from direct XML file i.e data.xml that time data will be in normal xml style. Please see the example.


var strXML="<graph xAxisName='' yAxisName='' caption='' subCaption='' decimalPrecision='0' rotateNames='1' numDivLines='3' numberPrefix='' showValues='0' formatNumberScale='0'>";

strXML += "<categories>";

strXML += "<category name=''/>";

strXML += "</categories>";

strXML += "<dataset seriesName='Risk Range' color='FF0000' showValues='0'>"

strXML += "<set value='100' />";

strXML += "</dataset>";

strXML += "</graph>";

I tried to use DataURL, it works.




So is it because dataXML's length limit?




I had similar problems when switching from a file based execution (setDataURL(...)) to a string based execution (setDataXML(...)). It turned out that I had special characters (e.g. %) in my string which, if loaded from file didn't cause any problems, but did when inputting the same XML as a string through setDataXML.




Once I removed all reserved characters from my XML string, the chart rendered fine even when initialized with na XML string instead of a file URL.
