Configure chart control to display 3D charts
our requierement is to display some charts in our application's dashboard. Therefore we added the chart control in a section and configured it to our needs. So far so good but I can't find any configuration to display the chart in the section in 3D mode. Default behaviour is always 2D. In a report definition it is possible to switch charts between 2D and 3D mode. Is there a way to display a chart from a report definition in 3D mode within a normal section?
The chart used in a section rule is OOTB Chart control, whereas the Chart Editor is used in Report Definitions.
Currently there is no way to display charts in a 3D format because the chart control was revamped in Pega 7.1.7, providing developers the ability to add charts, irrespective of whether the report definition (which acts as a source) has a chart configured. Now users can create charts in section even without worrying whether the source (example a report definition) has a chart configured or not.
In Pega 7.1.6 (and below), when a chart control was added, its parameters could only be configured in Internet Explorer, and only had Report Definition and Summary view as the source.
