OBIEE Graphs Gradient Effect



The default graph type are rather plain a simple 'professional' effect can be created by playing around with the gradient effect in the PCXML file:

<-Chart Version='4.30.00' BorderType='None' Width='491' Height='295' BGGradientColor='#ccccff' GradientType='BottomTop' >
possible types are:
  • BottomTop
  • TopBottom
  • LeftRight
  • RightLeft

Which .pcxml file(s) need to be touched? For a vertical bar chart, I've changed bar.pcxml and restarted all services, but I'm still seeing a plain white background.

Hi Mark,

You need to edit the PCXML files belonging with the "SKIN" your using (default: ..\OracleBI\web\app\res\s_oracle10\popbin) and (..\OracleBI\oc4j_bi\j2ee\home\applications\analytics\analytics\res\s_oracle10\popbin). Then restart the presentation server, javahost and POPchart service.

Sometimes you need to clear your "browser cache" also.

For vertical you need to edit
column.pcxml and bar.pcxml is only for Horizontal bar chart .
