I’ve gotten my BoxPlot to work properly for weeks now, usually the name for each boxPlot is one long string without any special characters. Now I have a new Box with name “# 03” and now this has caused the names to be replaced by index numbers instead of their string names, which as you can see in the dev console are actually given. Is there a reason for this? Can I not use # or special characters in the name, or can i not have a space?
Thanks in advance for any help
Thanks for the report.
This is indeed a bug. I’d recommend subscribing to https://github.com/plotly/plotly.js/issues/1131 for the latest development info.
The current behavior turns out to be the intended one (but also confusing unfortunately).
Here’s what you need to do to get the desired graph: http://codepen.io/etpinard/pen/qqbqxN
