The rendered chart can be printed directly from the browser by calling the public method print. ID of the chart div element must be passed as argument to that method.

  • HTML
  • <body>
       <button type="button" onclick="print()" ></button> 
        <div id="chartcontainer"></div>
            //Render Chart
            var chartsample = new ej.datavisualization.Chart($("#chartcontainer"), { 
    function print() {
    var chartObj = $("#chartcontainer").ejChart("instance");

    This print method can be called by performing any action on the web page. For example, by clicking a button. While calling the print method in chart, print preview will be displayed in the browser.

           //Render Chart2
              var chartsample = new ej.datavisualization.Chart($("#container2"), { 
           //Print multiple charts 
               function print() {
