Usage

Property Code sample Description
instance <AnyChart instance={myChart} Allows to use a preconfigured instance
id <AnyChart id="chart-container" /> Container id.
type* <AnyChart type="line" /> Chart type.
data <AnyChart type="column" data={[3, 1, 2]} /> Chart data.
width/height <AnyChart width={800} height={600} /> Width/height of a chart (stage).

* - property is required if you do not use an instance.

If you do not use an instance property of a component, properties go exactly as they go in AnyChart JavaScript API.

For example:


<AnyChart type="column" data={[3, 1, 2]} title="My Chart Title" legend="true"/>
                                                  

is equivalent to:


var chart = anychart.column([3,1,2]);
chart.title("My Chart Title");
chart.legend(true);
                                                  

Multiple entities (axes, line markers, grids)

To configure entity by index, you should use an array as a value: the first item in an array - index of an entity, the second - configuration.


<AnyChart yAxis={[1, {enabled: true}]} />
                                                  

Such settings are shown in Chart_with_JSON Settings example.
