Tooltip

Enable Tooltip for Data Points

Tooltip for the data points can be enabled using the “Visible” option of the e-chart-tooltip property under “e-common-series-options” of the PivotChart.

<ej-pivotchart [commonSeriesOptions]="commonSeriesOptions" [size]="size">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public size; commonSeriesOptions; 
    constructor() {
      //..
      this.size = { height: "460px", width: "950px" };
      this.commonSeriesOptions = { 
            //..
            //Enabling tooltip for data points
            tooltip:
            {
                visible: true
            }
       };
    }
}

Tooltip Template

HTML elements can be displayed inside the tooltip by using the template option. The template option takes the value of the “id” attribute from the HTML element. You can use the #point.x# and #point.y# as place holders in the HTML element to display the X and Y values of the corresponding data points.

<div id="Tooltip" style="display: none;">
    <div id="icon">
        <div id="ccicon"> </div>
    </div>
    <div id="value">
        <div>
            <label id="ccvalue">&nbsp;#point.y# </label>
            <label id="cc">Customer Count </label>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>
<ej-pivotchart [commonSeriesOptions]="commonSeriesOptions" [size]="size">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public size; commonSeriesOptions; 
    constructor() {
      //..
      this.size = { height: "460px", width: "950px" };
      this.commonSeriesOptions = { 
            //..
            //Enabling tooltip of data points
            tooltip:
            {
                visible: true,
                template: 'Tooltip'
            }
       };
    }
}

Tooltip Customization

By using Fill and Border properties of tooltip, you can customize its background color, border color and border width.

<ej-pivotchart [commonSeriesOptions]="commonSeriesOptions" [size]="size">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public size; commonSeriesOptions; 
    constructor() {
      //..
      this.size = { height: "460px", width: "950px" };
      this.commonSeriesOptions = { 
            //..
            //Enabling tooltip of data points
            tooltip:
            {
                visible: true,
                //Customize tooltip background color and border
                fill: '#FF9933',
                border:
                {
                    width: 1,
                    color: "#993300"
                }
            }
       };
    }
}

Tooltip with Rounded Corners

The tooltip properties, Rx and Ry are used to customize its corner radius.

<ej-pivotchart [commonSeriesOptions]="commonSeriesOptions" [size]="size">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public size; commonSeriesOptions; 
    constructor() {
      //..
      this.size = { height: "460px", width: "950px" };
      this.commonSeriesOptions = { 
            //..
            //Enabling tooltip of data points
            tooltip:
            {
                visible: true,
                //Customize the corner radius of the tooltip rectangle
                rx: "20",
                ry: "20"
            }
       };
    }
}

Zooming and Panning

Enable Zooming

There are two ways to zoom the Chart:

  • When zooming.enable option is set to true, you can zoom the Chart by using rubber band selection.
  • When zooming.enableMouseWheel option is set to true, you can zoom the Chart on mouse wheel scrolling.
<ej-pivotchart [zooming]="zooming">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public zooming; 
    constructor() {
      //..
      //Enable zooming in Chart
      this.zooming = { enable: true };
    }
}

After zooming the Chart, a zooming toolbar will appear with options to zoom, pan and reset. Selecting the “Pan” option will allow to view the Chart and selecting the “Reset” option will reset the zoomed Chart.

Types of Zooming

You can zoom the particular axis like horizontal axis or vertical axis or both axis using type option in zooming.

NOTE

By default, the value for the type option in zooming is “x,y” (indicating both axis) in PivotChart.

<ej-pivotchart [zooming]="zooming">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public zooming; 
    constructor() {
      //..
      //Enable zooming in Chart
      this.zooming = { 
            enable: true,
            //Enable horizontal zooming
            type: 'x'
       };
    }
}

Enable Scrollbar

  • When zooming.enableScrollbar option is set to true, the PivotChart is rendered along with the scroll bars for precise view of data. The data can be viewed by using scroll bar or by using mouse wheel scrolling.
  • html
  • <ej-pivotchart [zooming.enableScrollbar]="true">
    </ej-pivotchart>

    Marker and Crosshair

    Marker Shape Customization

    In PivotChart, you can customize the marker Shape with following symbols.

    • Rectangle
    • Circle
    • Cross
    • Diamond
    • Pentagon
    • Hexagon
    • Star
    • Ellipse
    • Triangle etc.
    <ej-pivotchart [commonSeriesOptions]="commonSeriesOptions" [size]="size" (load)="onLoad($event)">
    </ej-pivotchart>
    //..
    
    export class PivotChartComponent {
        public size; commonSeriesOptions; 
        constructor() {
          //..
          this.size = { height: "460px", width: "950px" };
          this.commonSeriesOptions = { type: ej.PivotChart.ChartTypes.Line };
        }
        onLoad(args) {
            args.model.seriesRendering = function (evt) {
                for (var seriescount = 0; seriescount < this.model.series.length; seriescount++) 
                    this.model.series[seriescount].marker.shape = "Triangle";
            };
        };
    }

    Highlight

    PivotChart provides highlighting support for the series and data points on mouse hover. To enable highlighting, set the “enable” property to true in the highlightSettings option of the series.

    <ej-pivotchart [commonSeriesOptions]="commonSeriesOptions" [size]="size" (load)="onLoad($event)">
    </ej-pivotchart>
    //..
    
    export class PivotChartComponent {
        public size; commonSeriesOptions; 
        constructor() {
          //..
          this.size = { height: "460px", width: "950px" };
          this.commonSeriesOptions = { type: ej.PivotChart.ChartTypes.Column };
        }
        onLoad(args) {
            args.model.seriesRendering = function (evt) {
                for (var seriescount = 0; seriescount < this.model.series.length; seriescount++)
                    {
                        this.model.series[seriescount].highlightSettings.enable = true;
                        this.model.series[seriescount].highlightSettings.mode = "series";
                    }
            };
        };
    }

    Highlight Mode

    You can set three different modes for highlighting data points and series by using the mode property of the highlightSettings.

    • series
    • points
    • cluster
    <ej-pivotchart [commonSeriesOptions]="commonSeriesOptions" [size]="size" (load)="onLoad($event)">
    </ej-pivotchart>
    //..
    
    export class PivotChartComponent {
        public size; commonSeriesOptions; 
        constructor() {
          //..
          this.size = { height: "460px", width: "950px" };
          this.commonSeriesOptions = { type: ej.PivotChart.ChartTypes.Column };
        }
        onLoad(args) {
            args.model.seriesRendering = function (evt) {
                for (var seriescount = 0; seriescount < this.model.series.length; seriescount++) {
                    this.model.series[seriescount].highlightSettings.enable = true
                    this.model.series[seriescount].highlightSettings.mode = "series";
                }
            };
        };
    }

    Customize the Highlight Styles

    To customize the highlighted series, use border.color, border.width and opacity
    options in the highlightSettings property.

    <ej-pivotchart [commonSeriesOptions]="commonSeriesOptions" [size]="size" (load)="onLoad($event)">
    </ej-pivotchart>
    //..
    
    export class PivotChartComponent {
        public size; commonSeriesOptions; 
        constructor() {
          //..
          this.size = { height: "460px", width: "950px" };
          this.commonSeriesOptions = { type: ej.PivotChart.ChartTypes.Column };
        }
        onLoad(args) {
            args.model.seriesRendering = function (evt) {
                for (var seriescount = 0; seriescount < this.model.series.length; seriescount++) {
                    this.model.series[seriescount].highlightSettings.enable = true
                    this.model.series[seriescount].highlightSettings.opacity = "0.5";
                    this.model.series[seriescount].highlightSettings.border.width = "1.5";
                    this.model.series[seriescount].highlightSettings.border.color = "red";
                }
            };
        };
    }

    Patterns to Highlight

    PivotChart provides pattern support for highlighting the data by setting an appropriate value to the pattern property of the highlightSettings. The different types of highlight patterns are as follows.

          this.size = { height: "460px", width: "950px" };
          this.commonSeriesOptions = { type: ej.PivotChart.ChartTypes.Column };
        }
        onLoad(args) {
            args.model.seriesRendering = function (evt) {
                for (var seriescount = 0; seriescount < this.model.series.length; seriescount++) {
                    this.model.series[seriescount].highlightSettings.enable = true
                    this.model.series[seriescount].highlightSettings.pattern = "chessboard";
                }
            };
        };
    }

    Selection

    PivotChart provides selection support for the series and data points on mouse click. To enable selection, set the “enable” property to true in the selectionSettings option of the series.

    <ej-pivotchart [commonSeriesOptions]="commonSeriesOptions" [size]="size" (load)="onLoad($event)">
    </ej-pivotchart>
    //..
    
    export class PivotChartComponent {
        public size; commonSeriesOptions; 
        constructor() {
          //..
          this.size = { height: "460px", width: "950px" };
          this.commonSeriesOptions = { type: ej.PivotChart.ChartTypes.Column };
        }
        onLoad(args) {
            args.model.seriesRendering = function (evt) {
                for (var seriescount = 0; seriescount < this.model.series.length; seriescount++) {
                    this.model.series[seriescount].selectionSettings.enable = true;
                }
            };
        };
    }

    Selection Mode

    You can set three different selection mode for highlighting the data points and series by using the mode property of the selectionSettings.

    • series
    • points
    • cluster
    <ej-pivotchart [commonSeriesOptions]="commonSeriesOptions" [size]="size" (load)="onLoad($event)">
    </ej-pivotchart>

          this.commonSeriesOptions = { type: ej.PivotChart.ChartTypes.Column };
        }
        onLoad(args) {
            args.model.seriesRendering = function (evt) {
                for (var seriescount = 0; seriescount < this.model.series.length; seriescount++) {
                    this.model.series[seriescount].selectionSettings.enable = true;
                    this.model.series[seriescount].selectionSettings.mode = "series";
                }
            };
        };
    }

    Customize the Selection Styles

    To customize the selection styles, use the border.color, border.width and opacity options in the selectionSettings.

    <ej-pivotchart [commonSeriesOptions]="commonSeriesOptions" [size]="size" (load)="onLoad($event)">

          this.size = { height: "460px", width: "950px" };
          this.commonSeriesOptions = { type: ej.PivotChart.ChartTypes.Column };
        }
        onLoad(args) {
            args.model.seriesRendering = function (evt) {
                for (var seriescount = 0; seriescount < this.model.series.length; seriescount++) {
                    this.model.series[seriescount].selectionSettings.enable = true;
                    this.model.series[seriescount].selectionSettings.border.width = "1.5";
                    this.model.series[seriescount].selectionSettings.border.color = "red";
                }
