spacing: Number/String

spacing property allows you to control the space occupied by Custom Break. Value can either be in pixels (number – ex: 5) or percent (string – ex: “4%”). Percent values are relative to corresponding Axis length.

Default: Automatically Calculated
Example: 5, 8, “3%”, “5%”

  • Pixel values are Numbers
  • Percent values are strings ex: “4%”
  • Percent values are relative to the minimum of plot area’s width or height.
  • spacing is limited to a maximum of “10%” of Axis length.

var  chart =  new  CanvasJS.Chart("chartContainer",
axisY: {
       scaleBreaks: {
		customBreaks: [{
			spacing: "2%",
