Size for Container

Chart can render to its container size. You can set the size via inline or CSS as demonstrated below.

@Html.EJS().Chart("container").Series(series =>
   {
   series.Type(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ChartSeriesType.Column).
   Marker(ViewBag.Marker).
   XName("x").
   YName("yValue").
   DataSource(ViewBag.dataSource).
   Name("Gold").
   Width(2).Add();
   }).
   PrimaryXAxis(px => px.Interval(1).ValueType(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ValueType.Category)
   .Minimum(2)
   .Maximum(5).
   .Interval(2))
   .Title("Olympic Medal Counts - RIO")
   .Width("650")
   .Height("350")
   .Render()
public IActionResult Index()
        {
            List<ColumnChartData> chartData = new List<ColumnChartData>
            {
                new ColumnChartData { x= "USA", yValue= 46 }, 
                new ColumnChartData { x= "GBR", yValue= 27 }, 
                new ColumnChartData { x= "CHN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "UK", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "AUS", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "IND", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "DEN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "MEX", yValue= 26 },
            };
            ViewBag.dataSource = chartData;
            return View();
        }
        public class ColumnChartData
        {
            public string x;
            public double yValue;
        }

Size for Chart

You can also set size for chart directly through Width and Height properties.

In Pixel

You can set the size of chart in pixel as demonstrated below.

@Html.EJS().Chart("container").Series(series =>
   {
   series.Type(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ChartSeriesType.Column).
   Marker(ViewBag.Marker).
   XName("x").
   YName("yValue").
   DataSource(ViewBag.dataSource).
   Name("Gold").
   Width(2).Add();
   }).
   PrimaryXAxis(px => px.Interval(1).ValueType(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ValueType.Category)
   .Minimum(2)
   .Maximum(5).
   .Interval(2)).
   Title("Olympic Medal Counts - RIO").Width("650px").Height("350px").Render()
public IActionResult Index()
        {
            List<ColumnChartData> chartData = new List<ColumnChartData>
            {
                new ColumnChartData { x= "USA", yValue= 46 }, 
                new ColumnChartData { x= "GBR", yValue= 27 }, 
                new ColumnChartData { x= "CHN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "UK", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "AUS", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "IND", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "DEN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "MEX", yValue= 26 },
            };
            ViewBag.dataSource = chartData;
            return View();
        }
        public class ColumnChartData
        {
            public string x;
            public double yValue;
        }

In Percentage

By setting value in percentage, chart gets its dimension with respect to its container. For example, when the height is ‘50%’, chart renders to half of the container height.

@Html.EJS().Chart("container").Series(series =>
   {
   series.Type(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ChartSeriesType.Column).
   Marker(ViewBag.Marker).
   XName("x").
   YName("yValue").
   DataSource(ViewBag.dataSource).
   Name("Gold").
   Width(2).Add();
   }).
   PrimaryXAxis(px => px.Interval(1).ValueType(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ValueType.Category)
   .Minimum(2)
   .Maximum(5).
   .Interval(2)).
   Title("Olympic Medal Counts - RIO").Width("80%").Height("90%").Render()
public IActionResult Index()
        {
            List<ColumnChartData> chartData = new List<ColumnChartData>
            {
                new ColumnChartData { x= "USA", yValue= 46 }, 
                new ColumnChartData { x= "GBR", yValue= 27 }, 
                new ColumnChartData { x= "CHN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "UK", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "AUS", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "IND", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "DEN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "MEX", yValue= 26 },
            };
            ViewBag.dataSource = chartData;
            return View();
        }
        public class ColumnChartData
        {
            public string x;
            public double yValue;
        }

 When you do not specify the size, it takes 450px as the height and window size as its width.
