View Full Version : Line chart legend / x position | Legend getting cut off.

3 Mar 2014, 1:06 PM
Hi all, I have a line chart that has a width of 755. I want to position my legend's X value 800px from the left which I am successfully doing. It is being cut off though since my svg and parent container are only 755 wide. How can I overcome this? Maybe set 2 diffrent widths or some padding trickery? Ive tried editing the padding and overflow of the chart object unsuccessfully.

Are you trying to have some sort of overlay?

I am having trouble visualizing what your goal is.

Just trying to add some spacing for formatting. Some left margin to push the legend away from the chart.

Sadly there's no "margin" config on the Legend class... but you probably already knew that :D

Alternatively you can try to override the calcPosition() method - but that will likely have some other repercussions since the calculated position is based upon factors like the box's size... so long story short you may have to override a few other things.

This CAN be done, but it might be a bit of work.
