Adding other chart information

You can also set Chart title, X and Y axis titles and sort order within the data file. The example below shows how the Chart title can be set.

Make sure that your data file includes a variable for the title such as

&ThisChartTitle=Monthly Growth Statistics

On frame 3, include the following:

//get Chart title
var ChartTitle
if (loading.ThisChartTitle.length > 0) {
ChartTitle = loading.ThisChartTitle;
else {
ChartTitle = "Default Title";
This code tests to see if we have a chart title and assigns it to the ChartTitle variable. If no title exists, the words "Default Title" will appear.

Apply to title to the chart with:


You can use the same approach for X and Y axis titles and for sorting the data.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
