As we were working on one of our projects, we had the need of creating multiple combo charts. The problem was that we could not change the colors to match our mashup/webpage. So, I decided to make an extension, that gives full control of the chart appearance and it's labels. The same as my Barchart extension this is wrapping text labels underneath the bars. If you still have problems with the text, then just increase the width of the bars and everything should be back in place.

Thanks for the extension Yianni, It could solve some of the issues I am having now.

However I have tried the extension and have few issues:

1. Number formatting does not work. When I try to change the format it stays on default format.

2. I could not find an option to add Secondary Axis.

Are these a known limitations or I am doing something wrong?

There is no option for secondary axis, which makes Meaure 2 shows as same line in the bar without getting trend line...

Hello Yianni,

Thanks a lot for the great extension.

Can you please explain how to - Display the Legend?

What  I achieve with your extension is only showing Legend by putting mouse cursor on the bar or line. Is this the only way?

 

Looking forward to your kind feedback. Thanks!

Lan
