Change color of total in a column chart for New UX

Hi,

 

Is there a way I can change the default color of my total value in my UX Column bar chart? Please see attached picture, TOTAL is not included in my list of Series.

Thanks in advance for helping,

Therefore, try converting your list items into line items.

Create a module with you required line items and convert these line items into a line item subset (LIS).

Create a mapping table which is dimensioned by the LIS and which contains a line item formatted as the list containing the Total.

Map each item of the LIS to the list. 

Use this mapping table to map you data from the list into the line items.

Create the required saved view and use this to build up your chart.

Hi @tompatrick.ting 

Is Total a line item? If so, do you have it set as the parent of the other two that are showing?

I have found that in these circumstances line item subsets do not allow you to select the parent despite it being another line item.

 

Therefore, try and deselect the Total as a parent and use a manual formula.

Chris' suggestion should work. Also, if 'Total" is made to be parent in a hierarchy then of course you can select as normal and change the colour.

hi @ChrisAHeathcote , the Total is a List.

Thanks @ChrisAHeathcote . I think this is my only option to create a new module to set the list as line item.
