I have a multi box and a chart. The multi box allows the user to select various items from a drop down box. H, P, N and so on

I would like to change the color of the in the chart based on what the user select.

Ex: if the user select H, I like the H info in the Chart to be red. If P then I like the P info to be Blue and etc.

How can I do this?

Re: color


Go to the chart properties, Expressions, expand using the [+] sign at the left of the expression you want to color, select "Background Color" and set something like

Pick(Match(FieldInMultibox, 'H', 'P', 'N'), LightRed(), Blue(), Green())

Hope that helps.

Re: color

Check this application, This works when user select one value.

This is also very similar solution suggested by Miguel.

Hope this helps you.
