Power Chart disable chart settings/pen control

For my project I need to make it so that the user has no way to edit or access any of the chart settings(axes, plots, etc.). This is mostly covered by just removing the settings button from the chart. However, I have pen control enabled to show the key/values/let the user remove pens from the graph, and the pens themselves have edit capabilities which opens the settings menu.

Does anyone know how to make the pen non-editable?


Check the Tag Pens dataset; I know there's a column you can manually define to lock the user out of deleting pens, there might be an 'editable' flag you can also provide.

Hello Isabella

Did you find out anything in regards to making the pen non-editable?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Unfortunately not, I’ve basically had to remove every power chart feature that opens pen customization, which is most of them. It’s definitely been disappointing. Sorry I can’t help more.

Hello, Where is this Tag Pen dataset? I want to disabled the delete a pen option.

It's in the property table of the easy chart. Make sure your property filter is set to 'All'.

Power Chart != Easy Chart


Hah. Wow, I failed to read that correctly twice, years apart.
