Simple problem but not finding the solution (Conditional Chart)

Hi,

I have created a chart and put a condition on it to display as :

=GetSelectedCount(field) >0

But when I select my field it get displayed else its just get off the screen(hide). I wanna display a message for the user which says somthing like "PLEASE SELECT ANY VALUE IN FIELD'. This message should be displayed everytime and when a user selects something in field a chart will be displayed.

Thanks in advance. Woulld really appreciate your response.

There are two basic approaches that I might use.  First, rather than a conditional display of the chart, do a calculation condition, and then edit the error message for "calculation condition unfulfilled" to display whatever you want it to display.  Second, keep the chart as is, and create a text box with a conditional display that is the opposite of the chart, and put your message in the text box.  That can allow for more flexible formatting if desired.
