tried replacing updateSeries with

registry.byId("chartConsignments").chart.series[0].update( [10,20,50,10] );

still error in same place


removeSeries() addSeries() render()


registry.byId("chartConsignments").chart.removeSeries("seriesUtilization"); registry.byId("chartConsignments").chart.addSeries("seriesUtilization", [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], {plot: "plotUtilizations"} ); registry.byId("chartConsignments").chart.render();

I guess this should work in theory however I would recommend you adding a x axis to your chart. If you do that (you can use an invisible axis if you want) it will work without waiting for a fix and this is probably a simpler workaround than the one your proposed.

Given that no one has shown interest in creating a patch in the past 3+ years, I'm closing this as patchwelcome.
