Sharepoint 2010 Chart Web Part

Posted on 2011-10-19

I have created a chart using External Data (BDS).  The chart is setup so that Y=count of items, X = Items.

Three questions:

How can I make every X point label show, rather than just a few?
Can I alternate bar color for each X point?
How can I order lowest to Highest or vice versa?

    Though i haven't tried these specific scenarios, Here's my 2 cents...

    How can I make every X point label show, rather than just a few?
    Try increasing the chart size, so increase the width to a large number that includes all your sites. You will likely end up with  scroll showing all the data points.
    Can I alternate bar color for each X point? I don't think that's possible. The colors are assigned on individual series.
    How can I order lowest to Highest or vice versa? The charts are drawn based on the data received. Make sure that your data is received in the order you want. The chart will simply respect that order. There are some 3rd party charting components that allow you to do this but not the out of the box one.
