SVGGraph options: units_before_label

« Return to previous page

Option name:
units_before_label
Default value:
NULL
Added in version:
2.13
Data type:
string [?]

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).

array
An array(), the number and data types of its members will depend on the option for which is it used.
boolean
A boolean TRUE or FALSE value, or any values that convert easily such as 1, "1", 0 and "".
callback
A callable function, which can be either the name of a function or an anonymous function itself.
colour
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.
fill
A colour value or one of the gradients and patterns supported by SVGGraph. See the SVGGraph colours page for details.
integer
A negative or positive whole number or 0.
number
Any number supported by PHP, for example 1 or -3.2 or 1.63e5 or M_PI.
string
Single or double quoted strings. Remember to double-quote your strings if you are inserting a line break: "Line 1\nLine 2".
Per-dataset:

global label data-label

String to display before value in data labels.

This option sets a string to insert in front of the value inside data labels. This is most useful when your values are monetary and you want to add in the "$", "£", "€" or other symbol.

$settings['units_before_label'] = '€';

This example sets the units string to the Euro symbol. The option is not limited to a single character, but I couldn't think of an example that would use a longer string there.

To append a units string after the value in the label, use the units_label option.

The string is only added to values in labels that come directly from the data. Labels from structured data or the data_label_callback function are not affected.
