  1. Is it possible to change the minimum and maximum dynamically? Tried it with variables as values but if variable change and chart is rendered the minimum and maximum aren’t renewed.

  2. Is there a callback function to get the min and max values? For example, i pass in all the data and since the min and max is being calculated anyway, can I retrieve those values?

    • [update]

      We have just released v1.9.6 Beta with Methods & Properties, which allows you to programmatically export chart as image, print chart, access internally calculated values, etc. Please refer to the release blog for more information.


      We still don’t have an API to access auto-calculated values.

    • Veeru,

      We have introduced Methods & Properties in v1.9.6 which lets you know the auto-calculated values like minimum, maximum, interval, etc. Please refer to blog-post for more information.
