Quick start

Here is a basic sample that shows how to add a chart:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<!-- Add the "ng-app" directive to activate MyApp module. -->
<html lang="en" ng-app="MyApp">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <title>Anychart AngularJS plugin demo</title>
    
    <!-- Add libraries to work with. -->
    <script src="angular.min.js"></script>
    <script src="anychart-bundle.min.js"></script>
    <script src="anychart-angularjs.js"></script>

    <style>
        html, body {
            width: 100%;
            height: 100%;
            margin: 0;
            padding: 0;
        }
    </style>

    <script>
        (function() {
            'use strict';
            
            // Declare your own module and controller
            // and inject anychart-angularjs module to
            // start working.
            angular
                    .module('MyApp', ['anychart-angularjs'])
                    .controller('MyCtrl', ['$scope', function($scope) {
                    
                        // In this basic case you just need to
                        // provide the data set to visualize.
                        $scope.myData = [
                            ["Chocolate", 5],
                            ["Rhubarb compote", 2],
                            ["Crêpe Suzette", 2],
                            ["American blueberry", 2],
                            ["Buttermilk", 1]
                        ];
                    }]);
        })();
    </script>
</head>

<!-- Add your controller -->
<body ng-controller="MyCtrl">

    <!-- Add AnyChart directives. It’s as easy as pie (chart)! --> 
    <div
            anychart
            ac-type="pie"
            ac-data="myData"
            ac-title="Simple Pie Demo"
            ac-legend="true"
            style="width: 100%; height: 100%">
    
    </div>
</body>
</html>

AnychartService

AnychartService is an Angular Service. It is used to share data between scopes and to provide more opportunities for developers. To use it in your module use the standard Angular DI mechanism.

By default, AnychartService, as a shareable object, contains two fields:

  • AnychartService.charts - an array that contains chart instances for dashboarding purposes.
  • AnychartService.chart - current chart. Auto or manually created. It is useful for any deferred actions like async data loading.
angular
       .module('MyApp', ['anychart-angularjs'])
       .controller('MyCtrl', ['$scope', '$http', 'AnychartService', function($scope, $http, AnychartService) {
           var service = AnychartService;
           $http.get('sample1.json').then(function(response) {
               if (service.chart) // If a chart is successfully instantiated.
                   service.chart.data(response.data);
           });
       }]);

Available Directives

Directive Code sample Description
anychart <div anychart></div> Supports attributes specific to this directive and generates a chart from anychart module (not gantt, map or stock chart types)
anygantt <div anygantt></div> Supports attributes specific to this directive and generates a chart from anygantt module (ganttResource and ganttProject)
anymap <div anymap></div> Supports attributes specific to this directive and generates a chart from anymap module (choropleth, bubbleMap, etc.).
anystock <div anystock></div> Supports attributes specific to this directive and generates a chart from anystock module (anychart.stock).
anychart-stage <div anychart-stage></div> Generates anychart stage to deal with complex charts and any kind of custom drawing.

anychart directive attributes

This directive is used to work with charts from anychart module.

Attribute View Sample Controller Sample Description
ac-type <div anychart ac-type="line"></div> - Kind of chart to create. In a sample, anychart.line() constructor is called.
ac-data <div anychart ac-data="myData"></div> $scope.myData = [ ... ]; Data to be put into a $scope of your controller in a field named myData. This value is a data source for a chart. Please note that for anychart directive we set the data with chart.data()-method. If chart doesn't have this method, use ac-instance directive instead (described below).
ac-title <div anychart ac-title="My Custom Title"></div> - Sets a string value to a chart title.
ac-legend <div anychart ac-legend="true"></div> - A string representation of a boolean flag. Enables/disables a legend.
ac-instance <div anychart ac-instance="myChart"></div> $scope.myChart = chart; Chart instance is created in a controller manually and it is used instead of auto-created. In this case a chart can be configired using Anychart API and access to the settings is not available via these ac-attributes. To make it work, create an instance manually, configure it and put into a $scope in specified field.
ac-chart-draw <div anychart ac-chart-draw="afterDrawHandler"></div> $scope.afterDrawHandler = function(chart) { ... }; Function called after the chart is drawn. Takes a chart itself as and argument.

Please note: No need to set a container of a chart and call chart.draw(). The plugin does it automatically.

Sample:

<div anychart ac-data="myData" ac-type="pie" ac-chart-draw="afterDrawHandler"></div>
angular
        .module('MyApp', ['anychart-angularjs'])
        .controller('MyCtrl', ['$scope', function($scope) {
            $scope.myData = [
                ["Chocolate", 5],
                ["Rhubarb compote", 2],
                ["Crêpe Suzette", 2],
                ["American blueberry", 2],
                ["Buttermilk", 1]
            ];
            
            $scope.afterDrawHandler = function(chart) {
                chart.title('After draw title');
            }
        }]);

anychart-stage directive attributes

This directive is used to draw anychart stage for custom drawing and complex charts.

Attribute View Sample Controller Sample Description
ac-instance <div anychart-stage ac-instance="myStage"></div> $scope.myStage = stage; A stage instances is created in a controller manually and it is used instead of auto-created. In this case a stage is configured using Anychart API and access to the settings is not available via these ac-attributes. To make it work, create an instance manually, configure it and put into a $scope into a specified field.

AnychartService can be used it to deal with anychart stage. Take a look at this sample:

angular
       .module('MyApp', ['anychart-angularjs'])
       .controller('MyCtrl', ['$scope', 'AnychartService', function($scope, AnychartService) {
           var data = [
               ["Chocolate", 5],
               ["Rhubarb compote", 2],
               ["Crêpe Suzette", 2],
               ["American blueberry", 2],
               ["Buttermilk", 1]
           ];
       
           var pie = anychart.pie(data);
           pie.title("Top 5 pancake fillings");
           pie.bounds(0, 0, '50%', '100%');
       
           var line = anychart.line(data);
           line.title("Top 5 pancake fillings");
           line.bounds('50%', 0, '50%', '100%');
       
           var afterDrawCallback = function(chart) {
               chart.title('After Draw Title');
           };
       
           AnychartService.charts.push(
                   {
                       chart: pie,
                       chartDraw: afterDrawCallback
                   },
                   line
           );
       
       }]);

This is what happens in the sample above:

  • Instances of anychart.pie and anychart.line are created.
  • Data, bounds, title and so one are configured.
  • Charts art put into AnychartService.charts. Note that we wrap pie-chart into an object with one additional field:: chartDraw. chartDraw is a function that is called after pie chart is drawn with a single argument that is pie chart itself.
  • Controller of anychart-stage directive processes the AnychartService.charts array.

anygantt directive attributes

This directive is used to deal with charts from anygantt module (ganttResource, ganttProject).

Attribute View Sample Controller Sample Description
ac-type <div anygantt ac-type="ganttProject"></div> - Kind of gantt chart to be created. In a sample, anychart.ganttProject()-constructor will be called.
ac-data <div anygantt ac-data="myData"></div> $scope.myData = tree; Just as the corresponding directive of anychart-directive, data tree is put into a $scope in a specified field.
ac-title <div anygantt ac-title="My Custom Title"></div> - Sets a string value to a chart title.
ac-instance <div anygantt ac-instance="myChart"></div> $scope.myChart = chart; Works with a predefined chart instance (see anychart directive).
ac-chart-draw <div anygantt ac-chart-draw="afterDrawHandler"></div> $scope.afterDrawHandler = function(chart) { ... }; Works the same way as described in anychart directive.
ac-splitter-position <div anygantt ac-splitter-position="300"></div> - Sets gantt chart splitter position.

anymap directive attributes

This directive is used to deal with charts from anymap module (choropleth, bubbleMap, etc).

Attribute View Sample Controller Sample Description
ac-type <div anymap ac-type="map"></div> - See anychart directive corresponding attribute.
ac-data <div anymap ac-data="myData"></div> $scope.myData = data; See anychart directive corresponding attribute.
ac-title <div anymap ac-title="My Custom Title"></div> - See anychart directive corresponding attribute.
ac-legend <div anymap ac-legend="true"></div> - See anychart directive corresponding attribute.
ac-instance <div anymap ac-instance="myChart"></div> $scope.myChart = chart; See anychart directive corresponding attribute.
ac-chart-draw <div anymap ac-chart-draw="afterDrawHandler"></div> $scope.afterDrawHandler = function(chart) { ... }; See anychart directive corresponding attribute.
ac-geo-data <div anymap ac-geo-data="anychart.maps.australia"></div> - Required attribute. Differs from ac-data: ac-geo-data sets geo data source, ac-data is a data for the default map series.

anystock directive attributes

Works only with ac-instance and ac-chart-draw attributes because of the specifics of Stock Chart setup.
