Props

ChartVoronoiContainer Props

The ChartVoronoiContainer component accepts the following props.

NameTypeRequiredDefaultDescription
anySee Victory type docs: https://formidable.com/open-source/victory/docs/victory-voronoi-container
activateDatabooleanWhen the activateData prop is set to true, the active prop will be set to true on all data components within a voronoi area. When this prop is set to false, the onActivated and onDeactivated callbacks will still fire, but no mutations to data components will occur via Victory’s event system.
activateLabelsbooleanWhen the activateLabels prop is set to true, the active prop will be set to true on all labels corresponding to points within a voronoi area. When this prop is set to false, the onActivated and onDeactivated callbacks will still fire, but no mutations to label components will occur via Victory’s event system. Labels defined directly on ChartVoronoiContainer via the labels prop will still appear when this prop is set to false.
disablebooleanWhen the disable prop is set to true, ChartVoronoiContainer events will not fire.
labels(point: any, index: number, points: any[]) => stringWhen a labels prop is provided to ChartVoronoiContainer it will render a label component rather than activating labels on the child components it renders. This is useful for creating multi- point tooltips. This prop should be given as a function which will be called once for each active point. The labels function will be called with the arguments point, index, and points, where point refers to a single active point, index refers to the position of that point in the array of active points, and points is an array of all active points.
labelComponentReact.ReactElement<any><ChartTooltip theme={theme} />The labelComponent prop specified the component that will be rendered when labels are defined on ChartVoronoiContainer. If the labels prop is omitted, no label component will be rendered.
onActivated(points: any[], props: VictoryVoronoiContainerProps) => voidThe onActivated prop accepts a function to be called whenever new data points are activated. The function is called with the parameters points (an array of active data objects) and props (the props used by ChartVoronoiContainer).
onDeactivated(points: any[], props: VictoryVoronoiContainerProps) => voidThe onDeactivated prop accepts a function to be called whenever points are deactivated. The function is called with the parameters points (an array of the newly-deactivated data objects) and props (the props used by ChartVoronoiContainer).
radiusnumberWhen the radius prop is set, the voronoi areas associated with each data point will be no larger than the given radius. This prop should be given as a number.
themeChartThemeDefinitiongetTheme(themeColor, themeVariant)The theme prop specifies a theme to use for determining styles and layout properties for a component. Any styles or props defined in theme may be overwritten by props specified on the component instance.
themeColorstringSpecifies the theme color. Valid values are 'blue', 'green', 'grey' (recomended), 'multi', etc. Note: Not compatible with theme prop @example themeColor={ChartThemeColor.blue}
themeVariantstringSpecifies the theme variant. Valid values are 'dark' or 'light' Note: Not compatible with theme prop @example themeVariant={ChartThemeVariant.light}
voronoiBlackliststring[]The voronoiBlacklist prop is used to specify a list of components to ignore when calculating a shared voronoi diagram. Components with a name prop matching an element in the voronoiBlacklist array will be ignored by ChartVoronoiContainer. Ignored components will never be flagged as active, and will not contribute date to shared tooltips or labels.
voronoiDimension"x" | "y"When the voronoiDimension prop is set, voronoi selection will only take the given dimension into account. For example, when dimension is set to “x”, all data points matching a particular x mouse position will be activated regardless of y value. When this prop is not given, voronoi selection is determined by both x any y values.
voronoiPaddingnumberWhen the voronoiPadding prop is given, the area of the chart that will trigger voronoi events is reduced by the given padding on every side. By default, no padding is applied, and the entire range of a given chart may trigger voronoi events. This prop should be given as a number.

ChartArea Props

The ChartArea component accepts the following props.

NameTypeRequiredDefaultDescription
anySee Victory type docs: https://formidable.com/open-source/victory/docs/victory-area/
animateAnimatePropTypeInterfaceThe animate prop specifies props for VictoryAnimation to use. The animate prop should also be used to specify enter and exit transition configurations with the `onExit` and `onEnter` namespaces respectively. @example {duration: 500, onExit: () => {}, onEnter: {duration: 500, before: () => ({y: 0})})}
categoriesCategoryPropTypeThe categories prop specifies how categorical data for a chart should be ordered. This prop should be given as an array of string values, or an object with these arrays of values specified for x and y. If this prop is not set, categorical data will be plotted in the order it was given in the data array @example ["dogs", "cats", "mice"]
containerComponentReact.ReactElement<any>The containerComponent prop takes an entire component which will be used to create a container element for standalone charts. The new element created from the passed containerComponent wil be provided with these props from ChartArea: height, width, children (the chart itself) and style. Props that are not provided by the child chart component include title and desc, both of which are intended to add accessibility to Victory components. The more descriptive these props are, the more accessible your data will be for people using screen readers. Any of these props may be overridden by passing in props to the supplied component, or modified or ignored within the custom component itself. If a dataComponent is not provided, ChartArea will use the default ChartContainer component. @example <ChartContainer title="Chart of Dog Breeds" desc="This chart shows..." />
dataany[]The data prop specifies the data to be plotted. Data should be in the form of an array of data points, or an array of arrays of data points for multiple datasets. Each data point may be any format you wish (depending on the `x` and `y` accessor props), but by default, an object with x and y properties is expected. @example [{x: 1, y: 2}, {x: 2, y: 3}], [[1, 2], [2, 3]], [[{x: "a", y: 1}, {x: "b", y: 2}], [{x: "a", y: 2}, {x: "b", y: 3}]]
dataComponentReact.ReactElement<any>The dataComponent prop takes an entire component which will be used to create an area. The new element created from the passed dataComponent will be provided with the following properties calculated by ChartArea: a scale, style, events, interpolation, and an array of modified data objects (including x, y, and calculated y0 and y1). Any of these props may be overridden by passing in props to the supplied component, or modified or ignored within the custom component itself. If a dataComponent is not provided, ChartArea will use its default Area component.
domainDomainPropTypeThe domain prop describes the range of values your chart will cover. This prop can be given as a array of the minimum and maximum expected values for your bar chart, or as an object that specifies separate arrays for x and y. If this prop is not provided, a domain will be calculated from data, or other available information. @example [-1, 1], {x: [0, 100], y: [0, 1]}
domainPaddingDomainPaddingPropTypeThe domainPadding prop specifies a number of pixels of padding to add to the beginning and end of a domain. This prop is useful for explicitly spacing ticks farther from the origin to prevent crowding. This prop should be given as an object with numbers specified for x and y.
eventKeyStringOrNumberOrCallbackSimilar to data accessor props `x` and `y`, this prop may be used to functionally assign eventKeys to data
eventsEventPropTypeInterface<"data" | "labels" | "parent", "all">[]The event prop take an array of event objects. Event objects are composed of a target, an eventKey, and eventHandlers. Targets may be any valid style namespace for a given component, so "data" and "labels" are all valid targets for ChartArea events. Since ChartArea only renders a single element, the eventKey property is not used. The eventHandlers object should be given as an object whose keys are standard event names (i.e. onClick) and whose values are event callbacks. The return value of an event handler is used to modify elemnts. The return value should be given as an object or an array of objects with optional target and eventKey keys, and a mutation key whose value is a function. The target and eventKey keys will default to those corresponding to the element the event handler was attached to. The mutation function will be called with the calculated props for the individual selected element (i.e. an area), and the object returned from the mutation function will override the props of the selected element via object assignment. @example events={[ { target: "data", eventHandlers: { onClick: () => { return [ { mutation: (props) => { return {style: merge({}, props.style, {fill: "orange"})}; } }, { target: "labels", mutation: () => { return {text: "hey"}; } } ]; } } } ]}
externalEventMutationsany[]ChartArea uses the standard externalEventMutations prop.
groupComponentReact.ReactElement<any>The groupComponent prop takes an entire component which will be used to create group elements for use within container elements. This prop defaults to a <g> tag on web, and a react-native-svg <G> tag on mobile
heightnumberThe height props specifies the height the svg viewBox of the chart container. This value should be given as a number of pixels
horizontalbooleanThe horizontal prop determines whether data will be plotted horizontally. When this prop is set to true, the independent variable will be plotted on the y axis and the dependent variable will be plotted on the x axis.
interpolationInterpolationPropTypeThe interpolation prop determines how data points should be connected when plotting a line
labelComponentReact.ReactElement<any>The labelComponent prop takes in an entire label component which will be used to create a label for the area. The new element created from the passed labelComponent will be supplied with the following properties: x, y, index, data, verticalAnchor, textAnchor, angle, style, text, and events. any of these props may be overridden by passing in props to the supplied component, or modified or ignored within the custom component itself. If labelComponent is omitted, a new ChartLabel will be created with props described above. This labelComponent prop should be used to provide a series label for ChartArea. If individual labels are required for each data point, they should be created by composing ChartArea with VictoryScatter
labelsstring[] | ((data: any) => string)The labels prop defines labels that will appear above each bar in your chart. This prop should be given as an array of values or as a function of data. If given as an array, the number of elements in the array should be equal to the length of the data array. Labels may also be added directly to the data object like data={[{x: 1, y: 1, label: "first"}]}. @example ["spring", "summer", "fall", "winter"], (datum) => datum.title
maxDomainnumber | { x?: number, y?: number }The maxDomain prop defines a maximum domain value for a chart. This prop is useful in situations where the maximum domain of a chart is static, while the minimum value depends on data or other variable information. If the domain prop is set in addition to maximumDomain, domain will be used. note: The x value supplied to the maxDomain prop refers to the independent variable, and the y value refers to the dependent variable. This may cause confusion in horizontal charts, as the independent variable will corresponds to the y axis. examples: maxDomain={0} maxDomain={{ y: 0 }}
minDomainnumber | { x?: number, y?: number }The minDomain prop defines a minimum domain value for a chart. This prop is useful in situations where the minimum domain of a chart is static, while the maximum value depends on data or other variable information. If the domain prop is set in addition to minimumDomain, domain will be used. note: The x value supplied to the minDomain prop refers to the independent variable, and the y value refers to the dependent variable. This may cause confusion in horizontal charts, as the independent variable will corresponds to the y axis. examples: minDomain={0} minDomain={{ y: 0 }}
namestringThe name prop is used to reference a component instance when defining shared events.
origin{ x: number, y: number }Victory components will pass an origin prop is to define the center point in svg coordinates for polar charts. **This prop should not be set manually.**
paddingPaddingPropsThe padding props specifies the amount of padding in number of pixels between the edge of the chart and any rendered child components. This prop can be given as a number or as an object with padding specified for top, bottom, left and right.
polarbooleanVictory components can pass a boolean polar prop to specify whether a label is part of a polar chart. **This prop should not be set manually.**
range[number, number] | { x?: [number, number], y?: [number, number] }The range prop describes the dimensions over which data may be plotted. For cartesian coordinate systems, this corresponds to minimum and maximum svg coordinates in the x and y dimension. In polar coordinate systems this corresponds to a range of angles and radii. When this value is not given it will be calculated from the width, height, and padding, or from the startAngle and endAngle in the case of polar charts. All components in a given chart must share the same range, so setting this prop on children nested within Chart or ChartGroup will have no effect. This prop is usually not set manually. examples: Cartesian: range={{ x: [50, 250], y: [50, 250] }} Polar: range={{ x: [0, 360], y: [0, 250] }}
samplesnumberThe samples prop specifies how many individual points to plot when plotting y as a function of x. Samples is ignored if x props are provided instead.
scaleScalePropType | D3Scale | { x?: ScalePropType | D3Scale; y?: ScalePropType | D3Scale; }The scale prop determines which scales your chart should use. This prop can be given as a string specifying a supported scale ("linear", "time", "log", "sqrt"), as a d3 scale function, or as an object with scales specified for x and y @example d3Scale.time(), {x: "linear", y: "log"}
sharedEventsanyThe sharedEvents prop is used internally to coordinate events between components. It should not be set manually.
singleQuadrantDomainPaddingboolean | { x: boolean, y: boolean }By default domainPadding is coerced to existing quadrants. This means that if a given domain only includes positive values, no amount of padding applied by domainPadding will result in a domain with negative values. This is the desired behavior in most cases. For users that need to apply padding without regard to quadrant, the singleQuadrantDomainPadding prop may be used. This prop may be given as a boolean or an object with boolean values specified for "x" and/or "y". When this prop is false (or false for a given dimension), padding will be applied without regard to quadrant. If this prop is not specified, domainPadding will be coerced to existing quadrants. note: The x value supplied to the singleQuadrantDomainPadding prop refers to the independent variable, and the y value refers to the dependent variable. This may cause confusion in horizontal charts, as the independent variable will corresponds to the y axis. examples: singleQuadrantDomainPadding={false} singleQuadrantDomainPadding={{ x: false }}
sortKeystring | string[] | FunctionUse the sortKey prop to indicate how data should be sorted. This prop is given directly to the lodash sortBy function to be executed on the final dataset.
sortOrder'ascending' | 'descending'The sortOrder prop specifies whether sorted data should be returned in ascending or descending order.
standalonebooleanThe standalone prop determines whether the component will render a standalone svg or a <g> tag that will be included in an external svg. Set standalone to false to compose ChartArea with other components within an enclosing <svg> tag.
styleVictoryStyleInterfaceThe style prop specifies styles for your ChartArea. Any valid inline style properties will be applied. Height, width, and padding should be specified via the height, width, and padding props, as they are used to calculate the alignment of components within chart. @example {data: {fill: "red"}, labels: {fontSize: 12}}
themeChartThemeDefinitiongetTheme(themeColor, themeVariant)The theme prop takes a style object with nested data, labels, and parent objects. You can create this object yourself, or you can use a theme provided by When using ChartArea as a solo component, implement the theme directly on ChartArea. If you are wrapping ChartArea in ChartChart or ChartGroup, please call the theme on the outermost wrapper component instead.
themeColorstringSpecifies the theme color. Valid values are 'blue', 'green', 'grey' (recomended), 'multi', etc. Note: Not compatible with theme prop @example themeColor={ChartThemeColor.blue}
themeVariantstringSpecifies the theme variant. Valid values are 'dark' or 'light' Note: Not compatible with theme prop @example themeVariant={ChartThemeVariant.light}
widthnumberThe width props specifies the width of the svg viewBox of the chart container This value should be given as a number of pixels
xDataGetterPropTypeThe x prop specifies how to access the X value of each data point. If given as a function, it will be run on each data point, and returned value will be used. If given as an integer, it will be used as an array index for array-type data points. If given as a string, it will be used as a property key for object-type data points. If given as an array of strings, or a string containing dots or brackets, it will be used as a nested object property path (for details see Lodash docs for _.get). If `null` or `undefined`, the data value will be used as is (identity function/pass-through). @example 0, 'x', 'x.value.nested.1.thing', 'x[2].also.nested', null, d => Math.sin(d)
yDataGetterPropTypeThe y prop specifies how to access the Y value of each data point. If given as a function, it will be run on each data point, and returned value will be used. If given as an integer, it will be used as an array index for array-type data points. If given as a string, it will be used as a property key for object-type data points. If given as an array of strings, or a string containing dots or brackets, it will be used as a nested object property path (for details see Lodash docs for _.get). If `null` or `undefined`, the data value will be used as is (identity function/pass-through). @example 0, 'y', 'y.value.nested.1.thing', 'y[2].also.nested', null, d => Math.sin(d)
y0DataGetterPropTypeUse y0 data accessor prop to determine how the component defines the baseline y0 data. This prop is useful for defining custom baselines for components like ChartArea. This prop may be given in a variety of formats. @example 'last_quarter_profit', () => 10, 1, 'employees.salary', ["employees", "salary"]

Chart Props

The Chart component accepts the following props.

NameTypeRequiredDefaultDescription
anySee Victory type docs: https://formidable.com/open-source/victory/docs/victory-area/
allowZoombooleanfalseSpecifies the zoom capability of the container component. A value of true allows the chart to zoom in and out. Zoom events are controlled by scrolling. When zoomed in, panning events are controlled by dragging. By default this value is set to false. Note: Only compatible with charts that display an x, y axis
animateAnimatePropTypeInterfaceThe animate prop specifies props for VictoryAnimation to use. The animate prop should also be used to specify enter and exit transition configurations with the `onExit` and `onEnter` namespaces respectively. @example {duration: 500, onExit: () => {}, onEnter: {duration: 500, before: () => ({y: 0})})}
childrenReact.ReactNodeThe children to render with the chart
containerComponentReact.ReactElement<any>allowZoom ? <VictoryZoomContainer /> : undefinedThe containerComponent prop takes an entire component which will be used to create a container element for standalone charts. The new element created from the passed containerComponent wil be provided with these props from ChartArea: height, width, children (the chart itself) and style. Props that are not provided by the child chart component include title and desc, both of which are intended to add accessibility to Victory components. The more descriptive these props are, the more accessible your data will be for people using screen readers. Any of these props may be overridden by passing in props to the supplied component, or modified or ignored within the custom component itself. If a dataComponent is not provided, ChartArea will use the default ChartContainer component. @example <ChartContainer title="Chart of Dog Breeds" desc="This chart shows ..." />
domainDomainPropTypeThe domain prop describes the range of values your chart will include. This prop can be given as a array of the minimum and maximum expected values for your chart, or as an object that specifies separate arrays for x and y. If this prop is not provided, a domain will be calculated from data, or other available information. @example: [-1, 1], {x: [0, 100], y: [0, 1]}
domainPaddingDomainPaddingPropTypeThe domainPadding prop specifies a number of pixels of padding to add to the beginning and end of a domain. This prop is useful for explicitly spacing ticks farther from the origin to prevent crowding. This prop should be given as an object with numbers specified for x and y.
endAnglenumberThe endAngle props defines the overall end angle of a polar chart in degrees. This prop is used in conjunction with startAngle to create polar chart that spans only a segment of a circle, or to change overall rotation of the chart. This prop should be given as a number of degrees. Degrees are defined as starting at the 3 o'clock position, and proceeding counterclockwise.
eventKeyStringOrNumberOrCallbackSimilar to data accessor props `x` and `y`, this prop may be used to functionally assign eventKeys to data
eventsEventPropTypeInterface<string, StringOrNumberOrCallback>[]The event prop takes an array of event objects. Event objects are composed of a target, an eventKey, and eventHandlers. Targets may be any valid style namespace for a given component, so "data" and "labels" are all valid targets for ChartPie events. The eventKey may optionally be used to select a single element by index rather than an entire set. The eventHandlers object should be given as an object whose keys are standard event names (i.e. onClick) and whose values are event callbacks. The return value of an event handler is used to modify elemnts. The return value should be given as an object or an array of objects with optional target and eventKey keys, and a mutation key whose value is a function. The target and eventKey keys will default to those corresponding to the element the event handler was attached to. The mutation function will be called with the calculated props for the individual selected element (i.e. a single bar), and the object returned from the mutation function will override the props of the selected element via object assignment. @examples events={[ { target: "data", eventKey: 1, eventHandlers: { onClick: () => { return [ { eventKey: 2, mutation: (props) => { return {style: merge({}, props.style, {fill: "orange"})}; } }, { eventKey: 2, target: "labels", mutation: () => { return {text: "hey"}; } } ]; } } } ]}
externalEventMutationsany[]ChartLegend uses the standard externalEventMutations prop.
groupComponentReact.ReactElement<any>The groupComponent prop takes an entire component which will be used to create group elements for use within container elements. This prop defaults to a <g> tag on web, and a react-native-svg <G> tag on mobile
heightnumbertheme.chart.heightSpecifies the height the svg viewBox of the chart container. This value should be given as a number of pixels. Because Victory renders responsive containers, the width and height props do not determine the width and height of the chart in number of pixels, but instead define an aspect ratio for the chart. The exact number of pixels will depend on the size of the container the chart is rendered into.
horizontalbooleanThe horizontal prop determines whether data will be plotted horizontally. When this prop is set to true, the independent variable will be plotted on the y axis and the dependent variable will be plotted on the x axis.
innerRadiusnumberWhen the innerRadius prop is set, polar charts will be hollow rather than circular.
legendComponentReact.ReactElement<any><ChartLegend data={legendData} orientation={legendOrientation} theme={theme} />The legend component to render with chart. Note: Use legendData so the legend width can be calculated and positioned properly. Default legend properties may be applied
legendDataany[]The data prop specifies the data to be plotted, where data X-value is the slice label (string or number), and Y-value is the corresponding number value represented by the slice Data should be in the form of an array of data points. Each data point may be any format you wish (depending on the `x` and `y` accessor props), but by default, an object with x and y properties is expected. @example legendData={[{ name: `GBps capacity - 45%` }, { name: 'Unused' }]}
legendOrientation'horizontal' | 'vertical'theme.legend.orientation as ChartLegendOrientationThe orientation prop takes a string that defines whether legend data are displayed in a row or column. When orientation is "horizontal", legend items will be displayed in a single row. When orientation is "vertical", legend items will be displayed in a single column. Line and text-wrapping is not currently supported, so "vertical" orientation is both the default setting and recommended for displaying many series of data.
legendPosition'bottom' | 'right'ChartCommonStyles.legend.position as ChartLegendPositionThe legend position relation to the area chart. Valid values are 'bottom' and 'right'
maxDomainnumber | { x?: number, y?: number }The maxDomain prop defines a maximum domain value for a chart. This prop is useful in situations where the maximum domain of a chart is static, while the minimum value depends on data or other variable information. If the domain prop is set in addition to maximumDomain, domain will be used. note: The x value supplied to the maxDomain prop refers to the independent variable, and the y value refers to the dependent variable. This may cause confusion in horizontal charts, as the independent variable will corresponds to the y axis. examples: maxDomain={0} maxDomain={{ y: 0 }}
minDomainnumber | { x?: number, y?: number }The minDomain prop defines a minimum domain value for a chart. This prop is useful in situations where the minimum domain of a chart is static, while the maximum value depends on data or other variable information. If the domain prop is set in addition to minimumDomain, domain will be used. note: The x value supplied to the minDomain prop refers to the independent variable, and the y value refers to the dependent variable. This may cause confusion in horizontal charts, as the independent variable will corresponds to the y axis. examples: minDomain={0} minDomain={{ y: 0 }}
paddingPaddingProps{}The padding props specifies the amount of padding in number of pixels between the edge of the chart and any rendered child components. This prop can be given as a number or as an object with padding specified for top, bottom, left and right.
polarbooleanVictory components can pass a boolean polar prop to specify whether a label is part of a polar chart. **This prop should not be set manually.**
range[number, number] | { x?: [number, number], y?: [number, number] }The range prop describes the dimensions over which data may be plotted. For cartesian coordinate systems, this corresponds to minimum and maximum svg coordinates in the x and y dimension. In polar coordinate systems this corresponds to a range of angles and radii. When this value is not given it will be calculated from the width, height, and padding, or from the startAngle and endAngle in the case of polar charts. All components in a given chart must share the same range, so setting this prop on children nested within Chart, ChartStack, or ChartGroup will have no effect. This prop is usually not set manually. examples: Cartesian: range={{ x: [50, 250], y: [50, 250] }} Polar: range={{ x: [0, 360], y: [0, 250] }}
scaleScalePropType | D3Scale | { x?: ScalePropType | D3Scale; y?: ScalePropType | D3Scale; }The scale prop determines which scales your chart should use. This prop can be given as a string specifying a supported scale ("linear", "time", "log", "sqrt"), as a d3 scale function, or as an object with scales specified for x and y @example d3Scale.time(), {x: "linear", y: "log"}
sharedEventsanyThe sharedEvents prop is used internally to coordinate events between components. It should not be set manually.
singleQuadrantDomainPaddingboolean | { x: boolean, y: boolean }By default domainPadding is coerced to existing quadrants. This means that if a given domain only includes positive values, no amount of padding applied by domainPadding will result in a domain with negative values. This is the desired behavior in most cases. For users that need to apply padding without regard to quadrant, the singleQuadrantDomainPadding prop may be used. This prop may be given as a boolean or an object with boolean values specified for "x" and/or "y". When this prop is false (or false for a given dimension), padding will be applied without regard to quadrant. If this prop is not specified, domainPadding will be coerced to existing quadrants. note: The x value supplied to the singleQuadrantDomainPadding prop refers to the independent variable, and the y value refers to the dependent variable. This may cause confusion in horizontal charts, as the independent variable will corresponds to the y axis. examples: singleQuadrantDomainPadding={false} singleQuadrantDomainPadding={{ x: false }}
standalonebooleantrueThe standalone prop determines whether the component will render a standalone svg or a <g> tag that will be included in an external svg. Set standalone to false to compose Chart with other components within an enclosing <svg> tag.
startAnglenumberThe startAngle props defines the overall start angle of a polar chart in degrees. This prop is used in conjunction with endAngle to create polar chart that spans only a segment of a circle, or to change overall rotation of the chart. This prop should be given as a number of degrees. Degrees are defined as starting at the 3 o'clock position, and proceeding counterclockwise.
styleVictoryStyleInterfaceThe style prop defines the style of the component. The style prop should be given as an object with styles defined for data, labels and parent. Any valid svg styles are supported, but width, height, and padding should be specified via props as they determine relative layout for components in Chart.
themeChartThemeDefinitiongetTheme(themeColor, themeVariant)The theme prop specifies a theme to use for determining styles and layout properties for a component. Any styles or props defined in theme may be overwritten by props specified on the component instance.
themeColorstringSpecifies the theme color. Valid values are 'blue', 'green', 'grey' (recomended), 'multi', etc. Note: Not compatible with theme prop @example themeColor={ChartThemeColor.blue}
themeVariantstringSpecifies the theme variant. Valid values are 'dark' or 'light' Note: Not compatible with theme prop @example themeVariant={ChartThemeVariant.light}
widthnumbertheme.chart.widthSpecifies the width of the svg viewBox of the chart container. This value should be given as a number of pixels. Because Victory renders responsive containers, the width and height props do not determine the width and height of the chart in number of pixels, but instead define an aspect ratio for the chart. The exact number of pixels will depend on the size of the container the chart is rendered into.

ChartGroup Props

The ChartGroup component accepts the following props.

NameTypeRequiredDefaultDescription
anySee Victory type docs: https://formidable.com/open-source/victory/docs/victory-group/
allowZoombooleanfalseSpecifies the zoom capability of the container component. A value of true allows the chart to zoom in and out. Zoom events are controlled by scrolling. When zoomed in, panning events are controlled by dragging. By default this value is set to false. Note: Only compatible with charts that display an x, y axis
animateAnimatePropTypeInterfaceThe animate prop specifies props for VictoryAnimation to use. The animate prop should also be used to specify enter and exit transition configurations with the `onExit` and `onEnter` namespaces respectively. @example {duration: 500, onExit: () => {}, onEnter: {duration: 500, before: () => ({y: 0})})}
categoriesCategoryPropTypeThe categories prop specifies how categorical data for a chart should be ordered. This prop should be given as an array of string values, or an object with these arrays of values specified for x and y. If this prop is not set, categorical data will be plotted in the order it was given in the data array @example ["dogs", "cats", "mice"]
childrenReact.ReactNodeThe children to render with the chart
colorstringThe color prop is an optional prop that defines a single color to be applied to the children of ChartGroup. The color prop will override colors specified via colorScale.
colorScaleColorScalePropTypeThe colorScale prop is an optional prop that defines the color scale the chart's bars will be created on. This prop should be given as an array of CSS colors, or as a string corresponding to one of the built in color scales. ChartGroup will automatically assign values from this color scale to the bars unless colors are explicitly provided in the `dataAttributes` prop.
containerComponentReact.ReactElement<any>allowZoom ? <VictoryZoomContainer /> : undefinedThe containerComponent prop takes an entire component which will be used to create a container element for standalone charts. The new element created from the passed containerComponent wil be provided with these props from ChartGroup: height, width, children (the chart itself) and style. Props that are not provided by the child chart component include title and desc, both of which are intended to add accessibility to Victory components. The more descriptive these props are, the more accessible your data will be for people using screen readers. Any of these props may be overridden by passing in props to the supplied component, or modified or ignored within the custom component itself. If a dataComponent is not provided, ChartGroup will use the default ChartContainer component. @example <ChartContainer title="Chart of Dog Breeds" desc="This chart shows..." />
dataany[]The data prop specifies the data to be plotted. Data should be in the form of an array of data points, or an array of arrays of data points for multiple datasets. Each data point may be any format you wish (depending on the `x` and `y` accessor props), but by default, an object with x and y properties is expected. @example [{x: 1, y: 2}, {x: 2, y: 3}], [[1, 2], [2, 3]], [[{x: "a", y: 1}, {x: "b", y: 2}], [{x: "a", y: 2}, {x: "b", y: 3}]]
domainDomainPropTypeThe domain prop describes the range of values your chart will cover. This prop can be given as a array of the minimum and maximum expected values for your bar chart, or as an object that specifies separate arrays for x and y. If this prop is not provided, a domain will be calculated from data, or other available information. @example [-1, 1], {x: [0, 100], y: [0, 1]}
domainPaddingDomainPaddingPropTypeThe domainPadding prop specifies a number of pixels of padding to add to the beginning and end of a domain. This prop is useful for explicitly spacing ticks farther from the origin to prevent crowding. This prop should be given as an object with numbers specified for x and y.
eventKeyStringOrNumberOrCallbackSimilar to data accessor props `x` and `y`, this prop may be used to functionally assign eventKeys to data
eventsEventPropTypeInterface<"data" | "labels" | "parent", "all">[]The event prop take an array of event objects. Event objects are composed of a target, an eventKey, and eventHandlers. Targets may be any valid style namespace for a given component, so "data" and "labels" are all valid targets for ChartGroup events. Since ChartGroup only renders a single element, the eventKey property is not used. The eventHandlers object should be given as an object whose keys are standard event names (i.e. onClick) and whose values are event callbacks. The return value of an event handler is used to modify elemnts. The return value should be given as an object or an array of objects with optional target and eventKey keys, and a mutation key whose value is a function. The target and eventKey keys will default to those corresponding to the element the event handler was attached to. The mutation function will be called with the calculated props for the individual selected element (i.e. an area), and the object returned from the mutation function will override the props of the selected element via object assignment. @example events={[ { target: "data", eventHandlers: { onClick: () => { return [ { mutation: (props) => { return {style: merge({}, props.style, {fill: "orange"})}; } }, { target: "labels", mutation: () => { return {text: "hey"}; } } ]; } } } ]}
externalEventMutationsany[]ChartGroup uses the standard externalEventMutations prop.
groupComponentReact.ReactElement<any>The groupComponent prop takes an entire component which will be used to create group elements for use within container elements. This prop defaults to a <g> tag on web, and a react-native-svg <G> tag on mobile
heightnumberThe height props specifies the height the svg viewBox of the chart container. This value should be given as a number of pixels
horizontalbooleanThe horizontal prop determines whether data will be plotted horizontally. When this prop is set to true, the independent variable will be plotted on the y axis and the dependent variable will be plotted on the x axis.
labelComponentReact.ReactElement<any>The labelComponent prop takes in an entire label component which will be used to create a label for the area. The new element created from the passed labelComponent will be supplied with the following properties: x, y, index, data, verticalAnchor, textAnchor, angle, style, text, and events. any of these props may be overridden by passing in props to the supplied component, or modified or ignored within the custom component itself. If labelComponent is omitted, a new ChartLabel will be created with props described above. This labelComponent prop should be used to provide a series label for ChartGroup. If individual labels are required for each data point, they should be created by composing ChartGroup with VictoryScatter
labelsstring[] | ((data: any) => string)The labels prop defines labels that will appear above each bar in your chart. This prop should be given as an array of values or as a function of data. If given as an array, the number of elements in the array should be equal to the length of the data array. Labels may also be added directly to the data object like data={[{x: 1, y: 1, label: "first"}]}. @example ["spring", "summer", "fall", "winter"], (datum) => datum.title
maxDomainnumber | { x?: number, y?: number }The maxDomain prop defines a maximum domain value for a chart. This prop is useful in situations where the maximum domain of a chart is static, while the minimum value depends on data or other variable information. If the domain prop is set in addition to maximumDomain, domain will be used. note: The x value supplied to the maxDomain prop refers to the independent variable, and the y value refers to the dependent variable. This may cause confusion in horizontal charts, as the independent variable will corresponds to the y axis. examples: maxDomain={0} maxDomain={{ y: 0 }}
minDomainnumber | { x?: number, y?: number }The minDomain prop defines a minimum domain value for a chart. This prop is useful in situations where the minimum domain of a chart is static, while the maximum value depends on data or other variable information. If the domain prop is set in addition to minimumDomain, domain will be used. note: The x value supplied to the minDomain prop refers to the independent variable, and the y value refers to the dependent variable. This may cause confusion in horizontal charts, as the independent variable will corresponds to the y axis. examples: minDomain={0} minDomain={{ y: 0 }}
namestringThe name prop is used to reference a component instance when defining shared events.
offsetnumberThe offset prop determines the number of pixels each element in a group should be offset from its original position of the on the independent axis. In the case of groups of bars, this number should be equal to the width of the bar plus the desired spacing between bars.
origin{ x: number, y: number }Victory components will pass an origin prop is to define the center point in svg coordinates for polar charts. **This prop should not be set manually.**
paddingPaddingPropsThe padding props specifies the amount of padding in number of pixels between the edge of the chart and any rendered child components. This prop can be given as a number or as an object with padding specified for top, bottom, left and right.
polarbooleanVictory components can pass a boolean polar prop to specify whether a label is part of a polar chart. **This prop should not be set manually.**
range[number, number] | { x?: [number, number], y?: [number, number] }The range prop describes the dimensions over which data may be plotted. For cartesian coordinate systems, this corresponds to minimum and maximum svg coordinates in the x and y dimension. In polar coordinate systems this corresponds to a range of angles and radii. When this value is not given it will be calculated from the width, height, and padding, or from the startAngle and endAngle in the case of polar charts. All components in a given chart must share the same range, so setting this prop on children nested within Chart, ChartGroup will have no effect. This prop is usually not set manually. examples: Cartesian: range={{ x: [50, 250], y: [50, 250] }} Polar: range={{ x: [0, 360], y: [0, 250] }}
samplesnumberThe samples prop specifies how many individual points to plot when plotting y as a function of x. Samples is ignored if x props are provided instead.
scaleScalePropType | D3Scale | { x?: ScalePropType | D3Scale; y?: ScalePropType | D3Scale; }The scale prop determines which scales your chart should use. This prop can be given as a string specifying a supported scale ("linear", "time", "log", "sqrt"), as a d3 scale function, or as an object with scales specified for x and y @example d3Scale.time(), {x: "linear", y: "log"}
sharedEventsanyThe sharedEvents prop is used internally to coordinate events between components. It should not be set manually.
singleQuadrantDomainPaddingboolean | { x: boolean, y: boolean }By default domainPadding is coerced to existing quadrants. This means that if a given domain only includes positive values, no amount of padding applied by domainPadding will result in a domain with negative values. This is the desired behavior in most cases. For users that need to apply padding without regard to quadrant, the singleQuadrantDomainPadding prop may be used. This prop may be given as a boolean or an object with boolean values specified for "x" and/or "y". When this prop is false (or false for a given dimension), padding will be applied without regard to quadrant. If this prop is not specified, domainPadding will be coerced to existing quadrants. note: The x value supplied to the singleQuadrantDomainPadding prop refers to the independent variable, and the y value refers to the dependent variable. This may cause confusion in horizontal charts, as the independent variable will corresponds to the y axis. examples: singleQuadrantDomainPadding={false} singleQuadrantDomainPadding={{ x: false }}
sortKeystring | string[] | FunctionUse the sortKey prop to indicate how data should be sorted. This prop is given directly to the lodash sortBy function to be executed on the final dataset.
sortOrder'ascending' | 'descending'The sortOrder prop specifies whether sorted data should be returned in ascending or descending order.
standalonebooleanThe standalone prop determines whether the component will render a standalone svg or a <g> tag that will be included in an external svg. Set standalone to false to compose ChartGroup with other components within an enclosing <svg> tag.
styleVictoryStyleInterfaceThe style prop specifies styles for your ChartGroup. Any valid inline style properties will be applied. Height, width, and padding should be specified via the height, width, and padding props, as they are used to calculate the alignment of components within chart. @example {data: {fill: "red"}, labels: {fontSize: 12}}
themeChartThemeDefinitiongetTheme(themeColor, themeVariant)The theme prop specifies a theme to use for determining styles and layout properties for a component. Any styles or props defined in theme may be overwritten by props specified on the component instance.
themeColorstringSpecifies the theme color. Valid values are 'blue', 'green', 'grey' (recomended), 'multi', etc. Note: Not compatible with theme prop @example themeColor={ChartThemeColor.blue}
themeVariantstringSpecifies the theme variant. Valid values are 'dark' or 'light' Note: Not compatible with theme prop @example themeVariant={ChartThemeVariant.light}
widthnumberThe width props specifies the width of the svg viewBox of the chart container This value should be given as a number of pixels
xDataGetterPropTypeThe x prop specifies how to access the X value of each data point. If given as a function, it will be run on each data point, and returned value will be used. If given as an integer, it will be used as an array index for array-type data points. If given as a string, it will be used as a property key for object-type data points. If given as an array of strings, or a string containing dots or brackets, it will be used as a nested object property path (for details see Lodash docs for _.get). If `null` or `undefined`, the data value will be used as is (identity function/pass-through). @example 0, 'x', 'x.value.nested.1.thing', 'x[2].also.nested', null, d => Math.sin(d)
yDataGetterPropTypeThe y prop specifies how to access the Y value of each data point. If given as a function, it will be run on each data point, and returned value will be used. If given as an integer, it will be used as an array index for array-type data points. If given as a string, it will be used as a property key for object-type data points. If given as an array of strings, or a string containing dots or brackets, it will be used as a nested object property path (for details see Lodash docs for _.get). If `null` or `undefined`, the data value will be used as is (identity function/pass-through). @example 0, 'y', 'y.value.nested.1.thing', 'y[2].also.nested', null, d => Math.sin(d)
y0DataGetterPropTypeUse y0 data accessor prop to determine how the component defines the baseline y0 data. This prop is useful for defining custom baselines for components like ChartBar or ChartArea. This prop may be given in a variety of formats. @example 'last_quarter_profit', () => 10, 1, 'employees.salary', ["employees", "salary"]
