Have you ever wondered, just like me, how you could change the default color palette that is used for graphs and charts in BusinessObjects XI?
Here’s how! The color definitions of the (first) palette are located in a file called ‘defaultConfig.xml’ located in one of the 16(!) folders that contain that file under the BusinessObjects home directory:
For the Web Intelligence Rich client this file is located under:
%BusinessObjectsHome%\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\classes\AppletConfig
For the http Web Intelligence client this file is located under:
Search for the following string in the file and that’s were you will have to change things:
<!– Palette used by graph –>
Next task on my ToDo list is to come up with a good set of colors to use in the palette so if you have any suggestions let me know!
