Resize Charts on Form

  • 1.  Resize Charts on Form

    Hello,

    Is it possible to resize the charts embedded on a form? I want the users to be able to print the form that has two charts per row (8 all together), but because the charts are so big they get cut off in the pdf.

    I've also noticed using the hamburger icon you can select to save as a png, jpeg, etc on the embedded charts. Is there a way to use javascript to create a url formula button that would save all of the charts on the page into one png? Just a thought as another option.

    thanks

    Unfortunately there is no way using native Quick Base functionality to change the size of a Chart on a form.  If you're adept at JS/HTML/CSS, it's possible you could create a code page where you could size the charts as appropriate. I don't know if they still do, but at one point Quick Base was using the reporting/charting engine from HighCharts, if you want to investigate their API documentation.

    Hi Mackenzie,

    I guess I got in here late. I accidentally saw this post and I have faced a similar issue in the past and I got over it by resizing the scale from the more setting during printing. I guess that will be good for up to 6 charts but I haven't tried with 8 charts. Give it a try if it helps.
