Source
Preview
app.vue
<template>
  <div>
      <ejs-bulletchart id="bulletChart"> </ejs-bulletchart>
  </div>
</template>
<script>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { BulletChartPlugin } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-charts';
Vue.use(BulletChartPlugin);

export default {
  data () {
    return {
    }
  }
}
</script>
  • Now run the application in the browser using the below command.
npm run dev

Module Injection

Bullet Chart component are segregated into individual feature-wise modules. In order to use a particular feature, you need to inject its feature module using provide method. In the current application,we are going to use tooltip feature of the bullet chart.

  • BulletTooltip - Inject this provider to use tooltip feature.

These modules should be injected to the provide method as follows,

import Vue from "vue";
import { BulletChartPlugin, BulletTooltip } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-charts";

Vue.use(BulletChartPlugin);

export default {
 provide: {
   bulletChart: [BulletTooltip]
 }
};

BulletChart With Data

This section explains how to plot local data to the bullet chart.

let data: any[] = [
       { value: 100, target: 80 },
       { value: 200, target: 180 },
       { value: 300, target: 280 },
       { value: 400, target: 380 },
       { value: 500, target: 480 },
];

Now assign the local data to dataSource property. value and target values should be mapped with valueField and targetField respectively.
