The Chart supports the following options:

Exporting to Drawing Visuals

By default, the exported image is of the same size as the Chart DOM element. If required, you can export the file to a different resolution. If you change the image size, the image quality will not be affected because the rendering of the Chart is based on vector graphics.

Fitting Charts to Paper Size

If the rendered Chart is bigger than the exported PDF paper size, then the Chart is clipped. To avoid this behavior, either:

  • Set the exportVisual size, or
  • Scale the drawing element which is returned by the exportVisual method.

The following example demonstrates how to fit the exported Chart to the paper size of the PDF file.
