Remove select columns from column chart


I'd like to display a chart. Just display it. The user should not be able to interact with it in any way.  What I would like to know is how to disable the option for selecting columns.

So far I couldn't manage to do it without some flickering effect.  That is not something I want.  When the user clicks on a column any selection event shouldn't even be called.

Here is a JS bin example:,output

If you can manage clicking on a column and no column selection is visible (and no flickering) and the alert popup doesn't occur (without obviously removing the alert) then the solution you have should be what I'm looking for.

Friendly regards

    Hi Riekert,

    You can try like this in your viz properties, if you don't want interaction with chart -

    interaction : {
        selectability : {
      mode :  "none"

    I edited the JSBin, check here: JS Bin - Collaborative JavaScript Debugging
