Today let’s talk about a quick fix while colorizing a graph. When you try to specify the colors of the bars in a horizontal bar graph, for example, it doesn’t change to those selected colors.
Let reproduce to problem.
1- Create a new report with Year and Cost;
2- Create a document using this report as dataset and create a Vertical Bar Graph;
3- Change the color mode to “Color by Categories“;
4- Change the color of the graph to Apex;
5- Run your document and you will see that your graph didn’t get those selected colors;
So, to make it works, you have to:
1- Change the color mode to “Color By Series“;
2- Edit your graph in Desktop/Developer and choose “Set Series by Row“;
Now when you run your document, you will see that it got the selected colors.
Hope it helps!
God bless you!
