ui.igCategoryChart

ui.igCategoryChart_image

The igCategoryChart is a lightweight, highly performant chart. This chart can be easily configured to display category data using an extremely simple and intuitive API. All you need to do is bind your data (a collection or a collection of collections) and the chart takes care of everything else.

The following code snippet demonstrates how to initialize the igCategoryChart control.

For details on how to reference the required scripts and themes for the igPieChart control read, Using JavaScript Resources in Ignite UI and Styling and Theming Ignite UI.
