Custom export to PDF button

Is there a way to add a custom export to PDF button outside of the chart?

Currently the PDF img sits inside the chart and not very visible.

What if I have multiple charts, how do I reference the export buttons to the right charts?

1. Add a link element via the content editor webpart (Edit page -> Insert -> Web Part -> Media and Content -> Content Editor -> Add -> Click the webpart -> Insert -> Embed Code):

Code: Select all
<a id="export_button_1" href="">Export to PDF</a>

2. Change the preRender function in the following way (in Dashboard Designer go to Dashboard -> Advanced):

Code: Select all
handlers.preRender = function(config, logger, processor, el) {
   logger.debug('Configuration: ', config);
   $('#export_button_1').click(function(e) {
   return true;

This way you'll be able to do for any number of charts that are situated on the same page, but of course, you'll need to use different link elements with different id values.
