Hi Sven,

I am afraid, FusionCharts supports the "link" attribute only in the <set> element, as of now. :)

Natively this is not possible. But there is a hack for this.

Please try providing the "link" as the string value for the attribute "label" in the <category> element which would in turn would let the category to behave a s a link.

Also, please try setting the attribute "isHTML" to '1' in the <styles> element to achieve what you intend to.

Ref.- <chart>


  <category label='<a href="test();">Jan <a/>' />





  <style name='myLabelsFont' type='font' font='Arial' size='14' color='000066' bold='1' isHTML='1'/>



  <apply toObject='DataLabels' styles='myLabelsFont' />




Hope this helps. :)

Hello Sanjukta,




I am facing a very strange issue in using this method for creating links in categories. The links work fine if I set rotateNames='0' but do NOT work (are not clickable) when I enable rotateNames by using rotateNames='1' .




I am using Developer licence charts with ScrollLine2D.swf. The MD5 hash of the .swf file is 7F54C6FBDE4BA9C9E385F3F716E12ED7. This may help you in identifying the version number. However, the version.txt says:




FusionCharts v3.1


Release: 24th February 2009




Please help me out on this issue. The XML I am using is your example XML found in GalleryDataScrollLineData.xml with the modifications you stated here. The XML I am using is attached with the message.




The rotateNames='1' is the culprit here. Please let me know of any workarounds or if there is a update of .swf file available.




Kind regards,
