Hi,

I have a Pie Chart. The dataset that contains the values for the one series that I want is laid out as a single row with 3 columns. Unfortunately BIRT pie charts interpret the use of columns as different series rather than slices of the pie.

I currently have to have an internal hidden table where I manually have to set a global variable for each value and then reference these global variables in the chart script... Yuk!

I was thinking that it would a be a lot nicer if the chart script could actually refer to the bound dataset directly in order to reference and ultimately transpose the columns into rows. Thus skipping the need for the hidden table and global variables.

Is this possible?

Thanks,
Mike

Mike

This is not currently possible but would be a great enhancement request.
Can you log it?
