Frequently Asked Questions

Your First Chart

How do I create a chart?

There are two components to creating a chart in ZingChart - the markup container in HTML and the ZingChart render method in JavaScript. To create a chart, you first need a container. Add <div id="myChart"></div> to your markup where you would like your chart to be. Then, create your chart configuration JSON object in JavaScript based on the chart type. Once you have the markup and the configuration, you can call zingchart.render() with the container id and JSON packet. See our tutorial on Your First JavaScript Chart for full instructions.
