ChartTypes

Line Chart

To render a Line Chart, set the series type as “line” in the chart series. To change the line segment color, you can use the fill property of the series. By default, series visibility is visible. This property is used to control visibility of series.

  • javascript
  • $("#container").ejChart({
                  // ...
                series: [{
                    //Change type and color of the series.
                     type: 'line',         
                     fill: "#E94649",
                   // ...         
                }],
                  // ...
           });

    Range Area Chart

    To render a Range Area Chart, set the type as “rangeArea” in the chart series. To change the RangeArea color, you can use the fill property of the series.

    • When you are using the points option, specify the high and low values by using the high and low option of the point.

    • When you are using the dataSource option to assign the data, map the fields from the dataSource that contain high and low values by using the series.high and series.low options.

    Change a point color

    You can change the color of a column by using the fill property of the point.

  • javascript
  • $("#container").ejChart({
                //   ...
                series: [{

                //    ...
    
            });

    Column width customization

    Width of the column type series can be customized by using the columnWidth property. Default value of columnWidth is 0.7. Value ranges from 0 to 1. Here 1 corresponds to 100% of available width and 0 corresponds to 0% of available width.

    NOTE

    Width of a column also depends upon the columnSpacing property, because columnSpacing will reduce the space available for drawing a column. This is also applicable for StackingColumn, StackingColumn100, Bar, StackingBar, StackingBar100, RangeColumn, HiLo, HiLoOpenClose, Candle and Waterfall charts.

  • javascript
  • $('#container').ejChart({
    
    		//Common settings for all series
    		commonSeriesOptions: {
        
    			//Width of columns in column type series
    			columnWidth: 0.7
    
    			//...        
    		},
    
    		//Settings specific to individual series
    		series: [{
    		
    			//Width of columns in column type series
    			columnWidth: 0.8
    
    			//... 
    		}],
    
    		//...
    
    	});

    Column with rounded corners

    Corners of the column chart can be customized by setting value to the cornerRadius property.
    The 4 corners are customized using the topLeft,topright,bottomleft,bottomright properties.

  • javascript
  • $('#container').ejChart({
    
    		//Common settings for all series
    		commonSeriesOptions: {
        
    			cornerRadius:20
    
    			//...        
    		}
    
    		//...
    
    	});

    Spacing between column series

    Spacing between column type series can be customized using the columnSpacing property. Default value of columnSpacing is 0. Value ranges from 0 to 1. Here 1 corresponds to 100% available space and 0 corresponds to 0% available space.

    NOTE

    Column spacing will also affect the width of the column. For example, setting 20% spacing and 100% width will render columns with 80% of total width. This is also applicable for StackingColumn, StackingColumn100, Bar, StackingBar, StackingBar100, RangeColumn, HiLo, HiLoOpenClose, Candle and Waterfall charts.

  • javascript
  • $('#container').ejChart({
    
    		//Common settings for all series
    		commonSeriesOptions: {
        
    			//Spacing between column series
    		columnSpacing: 0,
    
    			//...
    		},
    
    		//Settings specific to individual series
    		series: [{
        
    			//Spacing between column series
    			columnSpacing: 0.2,
    	
    			//...
    		}],
    
    		//...
    
    	});

    Cylindrical Chart

    To render a cylindrical chart, set the columnFacet property as “cylinder” in the chart series along with the series type.

    The following chart types can be rendered as cylinder in both 2D and in 3D view.

    • Column Chart, Bar Chart, Stacked Column Chart, Stacked Bar Chart, 100% Stacked Column Chart, 100% Stacked Bar Chart.
  • javascript
  • $("#container").ejChart({
           //   ...
           series: [{
               //To change the shape of the series
               columnFacet: 'cylinder',
               type: 'column',     
               //  ...         
           }],            
           //  ...
        });

    RangeColumn Chart

    To render a Range Column Chart, set the type as “rangeColumn” in the chart series. To change the RangeColumn color, use the fill property of the series.

    Since, the RangeColumn series requires two y values for a point, add the high and low value. High and Low value specifies the maximum and minimum range of the points.

    • When you are using the points option, specify the high and low values by using the high and low option of the point.

    • When you are using the dataSource option to assign the data, you have to map the fields from the dataSource that contains high and low values by using the series.high and series.low options.

  • javascript
  • $("#container").ejChart({
            
                // ...
                
                series: [{
                    //Set chart type to series
                     type: 'rangeColumn',        
                     fill: "#E94649",
                    //Use high and low values instead of y
                    points:[{ high: 6.1, low:0.7 },
                        //  ...         
                    ],
                   //  ...
