Usage

Basic usage

use practically\chartjs\Chart;

echo Chart::widget([
    'type' => Chart::TYPE_BAR,
    'datasets' => [
        [
            'data' => [
                'Label 1' => 10,
                'Label 2' => 20,
                'Label 3' => 30
            ]
        ]
    ]
]);

Using a db query to define the data

echo Chart::widget([
    'type' => Chart::TYPE_BAR,
    'datasets' => [
        [
            'query' => Model::find()
                ->select('type')
                ->addSelect('count(*) as data')
                ->groupBy('type')
                ->createCommand(),
            'labelAttribute' => 'type'
        ]
    ]
]);

Adding dom options

echo Chart::widget([
    ...

    'options' => [
        'class' => 'chart',
        'data-attribute' => 'my-value'
    ],

    ...
]);

Adding client options

In the client options array you can define any property to be json encoded and passed to the chart js constructor.

echo Chart::widget([
    ...

    'clientOptions' => [
        'title' => [
            'display' => true,
            'text' => 'My New Title',
        ],
        'legend' => ['display' => false],
    ]

    ...
]);

Formatting the y axes

echo Chart::widget([
    ...

     'clientOptions' => [
        'scales' => [
            'yAxes' => [
                [
                    'ticks' => [
                        'callback' => new JsExpression('function(value, index, values) {
                             return \'£\'+value;
                        }')
                    ]
                ]
            ]
        ],
        'tooltips' => [
            'callbacks' => [
                'label' => new JsExpression('function(tooltipItem, chart) {
                    var datasetLabel = chart.datasets[tooltipItem.datasetIndex].label || \'\';
                    return datasetLabel + \' £\'+tooltipItem.yLabel;
                }')
            ]
        ]
    ]

    ...
]);

Adding chart js events

Chart::widget([
    'type' => Chart::TYPE_DOUGHNUT,
    'jsVar' => 'DoughnutChart',
    'jsEvents' => [
        'onclick' => new JsExpression('function(e) {
            var el = DoughnutChart.getElementAtEvent(e);
            window.location.href = "/search/ + el[0]._model.label;
        }')
    ]
]);
