Showing full channel names in graph legend




The channel names in the graph legend are truncated after about 12 characters... Is it possible to force the graph legends to show the full channel names?

I looked at this forum topic, but it's only related to reports.. https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/58913-how-can-i-show-full-channel-names-below-report-graphs

Dear trung

Graph legend properties are defined in prtg.legends.css, which is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\css

The relevant section of this file is

.oneitem {
  color: black;
  float: left;
  overflow: hidden;
  width: 135px;
  height: 18px;
  margin: 1px;
  position: relative;
  padding: 1px;
  cursor: pointer;

You can enter different values for

  width: 135px;

This will make all channel labels wider, regardless if the width is needed. Please note that changing this file is not covered by the technical support. Also, the file is overwritten with every PRTG software update.
