about chart item category setting in WAD

Hi WAD experts,

I'm having a problem with a bar chart in my wad web template. I need to restrict this bar chart for showing maximum 5 categories. I have done this by unchecked the "maximum automatic" and set "max value" to 5 under the Category Axis in Refined Chart Properties for this bar chart.

The bar chart looks fine and just showing 5 categories when the template is loaded. This is my i want exactly, but whenever there is a new filter applied to the same info provider from the filter pane item. The bar chart will try to display all categories again, and ignore my max 5 categories setting.

I've tried to use the set item parameter command to reset the bar chart to show 5 categories after new filter applied but it doesn't work. The bar chart is still showing all categories.

Did anyone experience this problem before? Please provide me some guideline and solution. Thanks in advance.

    You need to control this via the query that is the dataprovier for the chart. If the query only displays 5 categories, the chart will do the same.

    One option for this is to set a condition on the query of 'Top 5'.
