- 1 answer

I made a Bar chart by chartist.js.

Now I want to add some listening event on the bars.

How can I do to let label show up when mouse over the bar?

You have 2 options -


Option 1


There is a tooltip plugin that you could use. You can find it here - https://github.com/Globegitter/chartist-plugin-tooltip

Once you add the CSS and JS files, you should be able to call the plugin like this - Chartist.plugins.tooltip()

Here is an example from their Plugins page -

var chart = new Chartist.Line('.ct-chart', {
  labels: [1, 2, 3],
  series: [
    [
      {meta: 'description', value: 1 },
      {meta: 'description', value: 5},
      {meta: 'description', value: 3}
    ],
    [
      {meta: 'other description', value: 2},
      {meta: 'other description', value: 4},
      {meta: 'other description', value: 2}
    ]
  ]
}, {
  low: 0,
  high: 8,
  fullWidth: true,
  plugins: [
    Chartist.plugins.tooltip()
  ]
});

This will be the easier and the better option.


Option 2


If you want to do something by yourself, you can bind mouseover and mouseout events on draw event's callback -

var data = {
  labels: ['W1', 'W2', 'W3', 'W4', 'W5', 'W6', 'W7', 'W8', 'W9', 'W10'],
  series: [
    [1, 2, 4, 8, 6, -2, -1, -4, -6, -2]
  ]
};

var options = {
  high: 10,
  low: -10,
  axisX: {
    labelInterpolationFnc: function(value, index) {
      return index % 2 === 0 ? value : null;
    }
  }
};

var chart = new Chartist.Bar('.ct-chart', data, options);

// Based on ty's comment
chart.on('created', function(bar) {
  $('.ct-bar').on('mouseover', function() {
    $('#tooltip').html('<b>Selected Value: </b>' + $(this).attr('ct:value'));
  });

  $('.ct-bar').on('mouseout', function() {
    $('#tooltip').html('<b>Selected Value:</b>');
  });
});

</div>
<div class="ct-chart"></div>
