## Color consistency b/w Bar chart vs Pie Chart

Hi ,

I have a requirement like below.

I want to show the same color for Pie chart as well as bar chart.

Dimension for  Bar chart --  I used 2 dimensions (Month Name (Jan-17).... Dec-17 ,Days)

Days Dimension -- I have used

if([xyz] <=1, 'Below 1 day'

',if([xyz] <=3,  'Below 2-3 day'

',if([xyz] <=7,'Below 3-7 day'

',if([xyz] <=17,'Below  8-17 day'

',if([xyz] <=30, 'Below 18-30 day'

,above 30 days

)'))))

Measure - Used    Count([xyz])+ 0 * Count([xyz])

Same thing for pie chart also

I used color by expression in both charts

if([xyz] <=1, Yellow()

',if([xyz] <=3, blue()

',if([xyz] <=7, Green()

',if([xyz] <=17, brown()

',if([xyz] <=30, red()

,Red()

)'))))

But still it's not coming correctly. Kindly help me on this

In essence, use the same set analysis that you use in your expression here

Only({<SetAnalysisFromYourExpression>}

if([xyz] <=1, Yellow()

',if([xyz] <=3, blue()

',if([xyz] <=7, Green()

',if([xyz] <=17, brown()

',if([xyz] <=30, red()

,Red()

)'))))

)

I think you have to re write your if condition like you have to mention condition like,

if([xyz]<=1,yellow(),if([xyz]>1 and [xyz]<=3,blue(),if([xyz]>3 and [xyz]<=7,green())))

because in above condition there is confusion you are mentioning different colors for <=1,<=3 and so on,e.g. if your value is -1 then statement is true for both the condition

Would you be able to share a sample to show the issue?

I have tied this too. but no luck

IF([Length of Stay] <= 1 ,  rgb(0,0,0),

If([Length of Stay] >1 AND  [Length of Stay] <=3,  Green(),

if(  [Length of Stay] >3  AND  [Length of Stay] <= 7 , Yellow(),

if(  [Length of Stay] >7  AND  [Length of Stay] <=17 , CYAN(),

if( [Length of Stay] >17  AND  [Length of Stay] <=30 , Red ()

, Magenta()

)))))

Days dimension you have calculated on chart or at script level.

because if you have calculated at script then you can try condition like,if([xyz]='Below 1 day',blue(),if([xyz]='Below 2-3 day',yellow())) and so on.

Hi Sunny,

Here, I can't see the different colors for different category

Try this... I think the issue is that you might be making selections which might be causing this. I have used {1} to ignore all selections for your color expression

Only({1}

if([xyz] <=1, Yellow()

',if([xyz] <=3, blue()

',if([xyz] <=7, Green()

',if([xyz] <=17, brown()

',if([xyz] <=30, red()

,Red()

)'))))

)

The best way to manage colour consistently across your apps is to make your standard dimensions and measures master items and then use the built in feature to colour particular values.

Then when you create a chart of whatever type using those master items you can set it to use libray colours and your chart will use those master colours.

It's working partially.

Eg :

I am able to see the different color for different category.

But

If select year = 2017 . i want to display only 12 months.

But in our expression.it pull all the months for all years rather than particular year

Do you have a set analysis that you use in your main expression to see 12 months?
