Data type:
array [?]

The datatypes used in this documentation for specifying SVGGraph options are described below. All options can be a literal value of the data type described, a variable containing the data type, or an expression that will produce the data type when evaluated (and they must always be valid PHP expressions).

An array(), the number and data types of its members will depend on the option for which is it used.
A boolean TRUE or FALSE value, or any values that convert easily such as 1, "1", 0 and "".
A callable function, which can be either the name of a function or an anonymous function itself.
Any of the colour values supported by SVG inside a single or double quoted string. These include three and six digit hex codes, RGB and RGBA colours, and colour names. SVG uses "none" for no colour, which generally leaves things transparent.
A colour value or one of the gradients and patterns supported by SVGGraph. See the SVGGraph colours page for details.
A negative or positive whole number or 0.
Any number supported by PHP, for example 1 or -3.2 or 1.63e5 or M_PI.
Single or double quoted strings. Remember to double-quote your strings if you are inserting a line break: "Line 1\nLine 2".

global legend

Array of entries for the legend.

Each entry in the array should be a string to display in the legend. For single dataset graphs, each data item will use one entry from the array. For multiple dataset graphs, each dataset will use one entry from the array.

Legend entries for data items that are 0 or NULL are not usually displayed - see the legend_show_empty option to change this behaviour.

The entries in this array can be overridden using the legend_text structured data option - see the Structured data page for details.

Entries may be split across multiple lines by including a linefeed character ("\n") inside the (double-quoted) string, for example "Watermelon\nbanana".

From version 3.9 each legend entry may be an array containing the legend text and a link.


$settings['legend_entries'] = ['Sales', 'Orders', ['Stock', '/stock-control/'] ];
