Im trying to create a dynamic chart series item that loads its own data instead of fetching everything in a parent component. Having trouble getting it to render.

Is there a obvious way to make this work? 🤷‍♂️

Example: https://stackblitz.com/edit/react-mqpaqe?file=app/main.jsx

Hello, Tarjei,

This is because the ChartSeriesItem is a props collector component and the Chart internally checks for it. If the component is different it will be ignored.

This will require calling it as a method:

I hope this approach proves helpful.

Regards,

Seems theres issues with hooks if you call components like that. I will have to solve it another way.

Yes, indeed hooks have some restrictions on where functions can be called, but a similar approach has to be used. If additional assistance is needed, please share an example with the hooks issue.
