Custom Color Palette

You can customize the default color of series or points by providing a custom color palette of your choice by using the palettes property

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-container',
    template:
    `<ejs-chart id="chart-container" [primaryXAxis]='primaryXAxis'[primaryYAxis]='primaryYAxis' [title]='title'[palettes]='palette'>
        <e-series-collection>
            <e-series [dataSource]='chartData' type='Column' xName='country' yName='gold' name='Gold' ></e-series>
            <e-series [dataSource]='chartData' type='Column' xName='country' yName='silver' name='Silver'></e-series>
            <e-series [dataSource]='chartData' type='Column' xName='country' yName='bronze' name='Bronze' ></e-series>
        </e-series-collection>
    </ejs-chart>`
})
export class AppComponent implements OnInit {
    public primaryXAxis: Object;
    public chartData: Object[];
    public title: string;
    public primaryYAxis: Object;
    public palette: string[];
    ngOnInit(): void {
        this.chartData = [
                { country: "USA", gold: 50, silver: 70, bronze: 45 },
                { country: "China", gold: 40, silver: 60, bronze: 55 },
                { country: "Japan", gold: 70, silver: 60, bronze: 50 },

        };
        this.palette = ["#E94649", "#F6B53F", "#6FAAB0", "#C4C24A"];
        this.title = 'Olympic Medals';
    }

}

Point Level Customization

Marker, datalabel and fill color of each data point can be customized with pointRender and textRender event.

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { IPointRenderEventArgs } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-charts';

@Component({

            <e-series [dataSource]='chartData' type='Column' xName='country' yName='gold' name='Gold'></e-series>
        </e-series-collection>
    </ejs-chart>`
})
export class AppComponent implements OnInit {
    public primaryXAxis: Object;
    public chartData: Object[];
    public title: string;
    public primaryYAxis: Object;
    public pointRender(args: IPointRenderEventArgs): void {
        let seriesColor: string[] = ['#00bdae', '#404041', '#357cd2', '#e56590', '#f8b883',
                '#70ad47', '#dd8abd', '#7f84e8', '#7bb4eb', '#ea7a57'];
        args.fill = seriesColor[args.point.index];
    };
    ngOnInit(): void {
        this.chartData = [

        ];
        this.primaryXAxis = {

           title: 'Countries'
        };
        this.primaryYAxis = {

Chart Area Customization

Customize the Chart Background

Using background and border properties, you can change the background color and border of the chart.

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-container',
    template:
    `<ejs-chart id="chart-container" [primaryXAxis]='primaryXAxis'[primaryYAxis]='primaryYAxis' [title]='title' background='skyblue' [border]='border'>
        <e-series-collection>
            <e-series [dataSource]='chartData' type='Column' xName='country' yName='gold' name='Gold'></e-series>
        </e-series-collection>
    </ejs-chart>`
})
export class AppComponent implements OnInit {
    public primaryXAxis: Object;
    public chartData: Object[];
    public title: string;
    public primaryYAxis: Object;
    public border: Object;
    ngOnInit(): void {
        this.chartData = [
             { country: "USA", gold: 50 },
             { country: "China", gold: 40 },

        };
        this.title = 'Olympic Medals';
        this.border = { width: 2, color: '#FF0000'};
    }

        this.margin = { left: 40, right: 40, top: 40, bottom: 40 };
    }

}
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

        };
        this.title = 'Olympic Medals';
        this.border = { width: 2, color: 'grey'};
        this.chartArea = { background: 'skyblue', width: '80%'};
    }

Animation

You can customize animation for a particular series using animation property. You can enable or disable animation of the series using enable property, duration specifies the duration of an animation and delay allows us to start the animation at desire time.

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { IPointRenderEventArgs } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-charts';

Annotation

Annotations are used to mark the specific area of interest in the chart area with texts, shapes or images.

You can add annotations to the chart by using the annotations option. By using the content option of annotation object, you can specify the id of the element that needs to be displayed in the chart area.

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-container',
    template:
    `<ejs-chart id="chart-container" [primaryXAxis]='primaryXAxis'[primaryYAxis]='primaryYAxis' [title]='title' background='skyblue' [border]='border' [margin]='margin'>
        <e-annotations>
            <e-annotation  content='70 Gold Medals' region='Series' coordinateUnits='Point' x='Japan' y=75>
            </e-annotation>
        </e-annotations>
        <e-series-collection>
            <e-series [dataSource]='chartData' type='Column' xName='country' yName='gold' name='Gold'></e-series>
        </e-series-collection>
    </ejs-chart>`
})
export class AppComponent implements OnInit {
    public primaryXAxis: Object;
    public chartData: Object[];
    public title: string;
    public primaryYAxis: Object;
    public border: Object;
    public margin: Object;
    ngOnInit(): void {
        this.chartData = [
             { country: "USA", gold: 50 },
             { country: "China", gold: 40 },
             { country: "Japan", gold: 70 },
             { country: "Australia", gold: 60 },
             { country: "France", gold: 50 },
             { country: "Germany", gold: 40 },
             { country: "Italy", gold: 40 },
             { country: "Sweden", gold: 30 }
        ];
        this.primaryXAxis = {
           valueType: 'Category',
           title: 'Countries'
        };
        this.primaryYAxis = {
            minimum: 0, maximum: 80,
            interval: 20, title: 'Medals'
        };
        this.title = 'Olympic Medals';
