Hi,

we are looking for a way to get around overlapping text/icons for our chart notes, it's a time series chart and when you choose a long time frame the notes start to overlap on the x-axis.

We want to introduce a note that can combine multiple notes (by simply using a differnt icon and add all info into the hover) but only when notes overlap, to determine that we would need the x-position in the chart, as we have the chart width and the width of the note label icon.

I did not see a way of accessing any kind of "position.x" property for a Note though in the API. Can you please point me into the right direction.

I would even be fine if it's not a supported API property but some other way  (via JavaScript) to get that information. WHen I look at the SVG ion the browser I notice there is a x and y position for the SVG element making up the note icon but I don't see a way of determining shich SVG element is linked to which Note in the series.

(attached an example of overlapping icons)

Thanks,

Steve

Hello Steve,

It is possible to get the notes and their position by using the visual function - example
