(static) axis․x․max

Source:
Properties:
Name Type Description
max number

Set the max value

Properties
Name Type Attributes Default Description
fit boolean <optional>
false

When specified max.value is greater than the bound data value, setting true will make x axis max to be fitted to the bound data max value.

  • NOTE: If the bound data max value is greater than the max.value, the x axis max will be limited as the given max.value.
value number <optional>

Set the max value

Set max value of x axis range.

Example
axis: {
  x: {
    max: 100,

    max: {
      // 'fit=true' will make x axis max to be limited as the bound data value max when 'max.value' is greater.
      // - when bound data max is '10' and max.value: '100' ==>  x axis max will be '10'
      // - when bound data max is '1000' and max.value: '100' ==> x axis max will be '100'
      fit: true,
      value: 100
    }
  }
}

(static) axis․x․min

Source:
Properties:
Name Type Description
min number

Set the min value

Properties
Name Type Attributes Default Description
fit boolean <optional>
false

When specified min.value is lower than the bound data value, setting true will make x axis min to be fitted to the bound data min value.

  • NOTE: If the bound data min value is lower than the min.value, the x axis min will be limited as the given min.value.
value number <optional>

Set the min value

Set min value of x axis range.

Example
axis: {
  x: {
    min: -100,

    min: {
      // 'fit=true' will make x axis min to be limited as the bound data value min when 'min.value' is lower.
      // - when bound data min is '-10' and min.value: '-100' ==>  x axis min will be '-10'
      // - when bound data min is '-1000' and min.value: '-100' ==> x axis min will be '-100'
      fit: true,
      value: -100
    }
  }
}

(static) axis․x․padding :object|number

Source:
Default Value:
  • {}

Set padding for x axis.

If this option is set, the range of x axis will increase/decrease according to the values. If no padding is needed in the rage of x axis, 0 should be set. By default, left/right padding are set depending on x axis type or chart types.

  • NOTE:
    • The meaning of padding values, differs according axis types:
      • category/indexed: The unit of tick value ex. the given value 1, is same as the width of 1 tick width
      • timeseries: Numeric time value ex. the given value 1000*60*60*24, which is numeric time equivalent of a day, is same as the width of 1 tick width
    • If want values to be treated as pixels, specify unit:"px".
      • The pixel value will be convered based on the scale values. Hence can not reflect accurate padding result.
Type:
  • object | number
Example
axis: {
  x: {
    padding: {
      // when axis type is 'category'
      left: 1,  // set left padding width of equivalent value of a tick's width
      right: 0.5  // set right padding width as half of equivalent value of tick's width

      // when axis type is 'timeseries'
      left: 1000*60*60*24,  // set left padding width of equivalent value of a day tick's width
      right: 1000*60*60*12   // set right padding width as half of equivalent value of a day tick's width
    },

    // or set both values at once.
    padding: 10,

    // or set padding values as pixel unit.
    padding: {
      left: 100,
      right: 50,
      unit: "px"
    },
  }
