Hi there,

We would like to move on from phpdocx v. 7.0 to v. 7.5 and have been lately converting chart data to the new structure required by the 7.5 version. But we have problems with addChart "showTable" parameter. It just does not work. Setting it to true (true, 1 or '1') makes no difference. We have also tried examples with the same results. There was no problem with the 7.0 version but now the table of chart data does not appear under any bar chart. Weirdly enough, one can easily open a resulting docx file and manually set the option to true for any chart.

Hope that someone could help us with this issue.

Regards, Jari

We're checking the issue (displaying the table of values in charts). Which package are you using? classic or namespaces?

We're using Classic

The dev team has checked the issue and it appears by a wrong lowercase in a variable.

Please edit the file, and around line 226, you'll find this:

if (!empty($this->_showtable)) {

Please change it by:

if (!empty($this->_showTable)) {

and try again. The table should appear correctly after this change.

Although we're going to upload a new package with this fix, these are the files that need the same change:,,, and

Our apologies for any inconvenience.
