I want to show a stacked bar chart (single bar) that only one part of it (the dark green one that has 15%) is clickable, when clicked this section will drill down. see examples below:

stacked bar option: Before drill down

After drill down

any suggestions?

  • Why only one section? Can you provide some more context of the problem you’re trying to solve? – Mike M Sep 12 '19 at 12:37

Try placing emphasis on the legend, so it's persistent in size and prominence regardless of the % of the dataset.

You could try to suggest the drilldown in the data, but you'll run into problems where you have a small % of the whole, but still is important to inspect: this means there's less pixel area to both suggest interactivity, and for the user to actually select and drilldown on the data.

Use the legend; it's persistent, and you can try using borders, text or a combo of both.
