I need radar charts for my application, so I was excited to see that Birt 2.6 offers them. Unfortunately, Birt seems to do something really odd.

"Normal" radar charts have one "spoke" per category (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radar_chart for examples), placing corresponding points from each series on the same spoke (if I have 6 categories, I have 6 spokes, no matter how many series I have). Birt is giving me one spoke per category per series (if I have 6 categories and 4 series, I end up with 24 spokes).

Is there any way to convince Birt to generate a "normal" graph with the one-spoke-per-category presentation?

Adrian,

I believe there is already a bug reported for this and it should be
fixed soon.

Ah, didn't consider it might be considered a "bug" - more of a "that's really strange, why would they choose to do that?"

Anyway, I found the bug at https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=317273 and voted for it.

I have the same problem.

Have you found a solution for this?

Thanks

Have you tried any of the 2.6.1 builds.

I'm using 2.6.1.v20100915-1750 build.

I've tried everything within the dataset to fix this problem with no success.

It does not appear to be in the 2.6.1 code yet. I am checking into this
now. If you send me an email I can send you the revised plugins.

Is there any estimate as to when this will make its way into a build?
