Chart sizing

Chart renders based on the parent widget size. If you need the chart to be rendered in specific size, then set the size(width/height) to the parent widget.

You can also customize the following properties:

  • dart
  • @override
        Widget build(BuildContext context) {
          return Scaffold(
            body: SafeArea(
              child: Center(
                child: Container(
                  height: 300, // height of the Container widget
                  width: 350,  // width of the Container widget
                  child: SfCartesianChart()
                )
              )
            )
          );
        }

            child: Container(
              height: 300, 
              width: 350, 
              child: SfCartesianChart(
                  borderColor: Colors.red,
                  borderWidth: 2,
                  // Sets 15 logical pixels as margin for all the 4 sides.
                  margin: EdgeInsets.all(15)
                  )
                )
              )
            )
          );
        }
