Known Issues & Limitations
R4.0.214.2013

New Known Issues:

  • When using SQL or BCS as a data source, preview does not display the chart after editing the X-axis settings.
  • When using BCS or SQL as a data source, the Y-Axis data labels display excessive decimal places when the data type is “General” and the y-axis is aggregated with Sum or Average.
  • Count aggregation counts the null/empty values instead of excluding them.
  • Data Labels may overlap when configuring more than one series on a chart.
  • Display Unit indicators are not displayed next to the value axis (e.g. x1000).
  • Web Part Connections are not supported in the Chart Plus 4.0.
  • After upgrading to R4.0, the old Web Part Gallery name (“Bamboo Chart Plus Web Part”) is not replaced with the new name (“Bamboo Chart Plus”).

New Limitations:

  • When using a SQL and BCS as a data source with a y-series of all zero values, chart displays SQL statement error.
  • When X-axis labels are slanted, labels are cut off in Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers. (Workaround: Go to the Advanced Display settings and input 20px for the “Margins > Bottom” value)
  • Chart Plus 4.0 only supports List Rollup 7.0 and higher.
  • 100% Stacked Column chart type cuts off data labels at top (Workaround: Go to the Advanced Display settings and input 20px for the “Margins > Top” value).
  • Exporting options (Print, Excel, PDF, SVG) are not supported on Internet Explorer 8 browsers.

  • Intelligent Labels options are not available in R4.0

R3.5.143.2013

New Known Issues:

  • If the list containts more than 40 items, enable "Intelligent Label" results in the Web Part shows error: "Request Timed Out.". See RAD Chart - Request Timed Out Error discussion from Telerik for more information.
  • When using Excel services as the data source, changing the region to German the Web Part displays Bamboo Error "Not a legal OleAut date." in Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.
  • When Web Part Connection is used for filtering, if "Send first row to connected Web Parts when page loads" in the Miscellaneous of the consumer Web Part's tool pane is not checked users will see the "No data to display..." error since the Data View sends empty value to the consumer of the connection. (Note: If this "Send first row to connected Web Parts when page loads" property is set TRUE (checked), the Web part will initiate (fire) its connection when the page containing the part is first loaded in the web browser. The Data View sends the data for the first row in the result set XML data to the Web Part that is the consumer of the connection. This property allows a Web Part page with connected Data Views to have a reasonable initial state then the page is opened in the web browser.)
  • Some labels are displayed in the wrong place when the orientation of the chart is changed from vertical to horizontal.
  • When using List Rollup version 5.0 as the data source, Chart Plus displays incorrect time data and still shows time with the "date" datatype only instead of "date and time".
  • When using a SQL data source, Chart Plus does not display the data in the correct order when "Enable grouping" is selected. 

New Limitations:

  • When using external list as the data source, the Web part does not support data types including Datetimeoffset, Time7 and Begin.
  • When using Excel services as the data source and there is an empty value in the first row for a particular column, in Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 the Web Part Settings does not show the column name for this column under the Available Columns listbox to select.
  • When Web Part Connection is used for filtering and the x-axis and y-axis are empty for one of the items, the "No Data to display..." error is displayed.
  • When connect with Excel Services, the original currency is not displayed, e.g. € is displayed as $.
  • When connect with Excel Services and the Date/Time column is selected from the worksheet to display, the Bar (Date/Time) option is not available as part of the Chart Type's drop down options.
