How to hide the total column

Pranav Chitanand asked on March 2, 2023

I want to hide the Total column. I have tried setting the prop as showTotals as off. But it hides only the values and not the total column.
Please let me know how we can hide the total column.
JsFiddle for your reference -

Hello, Pranav!
Thank you for contacting us.
Kindly note that when the '[Measures]' are in the first place of the Columns array, Flexmonster shows the Totals column, which is empty when totals are switched off.
As a possible solution, we want to suggest different visualization when the '[Measures]' are the last element of the columns array as follows:

columns: [{
        uniqueName: "Color"
        uniqueName: '[Measures]'

We have modified the provided JSFiddle to show the described approach:
Hope you will find our answer helpful.

Hello Solomiia,
Thank you for the response. The solution proposed does not fit the business requirement.
The business need is to compare "Discount" metric for various "Colors" and "Price" metric for various "Colors". This enables the business to view metric differences across colors in one-go. The empty column created because of the "Total" is unexplainable and not presentable to business leadership.

Need to address this empty column issue for us to meet our client needs.
