    Animation
    In This Topic

    The JS Viewer (and WebViewer control) provides the API for users to add animations to charts and tables. You can enable the animation feature on charts when the chart is loaded and when the user hovers over a chart or a table.

    Note: For the chart animations, you need to add the jsViewer.chart.min.js and jsVIewer.chart.min.css files from the NPM packages to your project and link them on your page.

    Load Animation on Charts

     Load Animation Effect in Charts

    Load animation occurs when the chart first loads, or when the chart is forced to reload. To enable load animation in charts, use the following code:

    index.html
    Copy Code
    animation: {
                        loadChart: {
                            enabled: true
                        }
                    }
    

    Hover Animation

    Hover animation occurs when the user hovers the mouse over a data point.

     Hover Animation on Charts

    The hover animation in the case of charts scales the data point. The data point is enlarged when the user hovers the mouse over the data and is shrunk back to the original size when the user hovers away from the data point. Depending on the Tooltip template set on the chart while designing a chart, the hover labels can also be displayed over the data points.

    index.html
    Copy Code
    animation: {
                        hoverChart: {
                            enabled: true
                        },
                    }
    

    Hover Animation on Tables

    The hover animation in the case of tables highlights the table row by coloring the row background and the text on the hover.

    index.html
    Copy Code
    animation: {
                        hoverTable: {
                            enabled: true,
                            backgroundColor: 'LightGray',
                            textColor: 'DarkGray'
                        }
                    }

                    }
                });
               
                console.dir(viewer)
                viewer.openReport("DemoReport.rdlx");
            }

    Important: The plot rules do not work on charts with animation. If you want the plot rules to apply on a chart, you must disable the animation properties.
