subtitles: Array

subtitles is a collection of subtitle elements. This allows you to have as many subtitles as you want in a chart.

subtitle: Object

subtitle allows you to set content, appearance and position of Chart’s subtitle. subtitle is very much like title except that its font size is lesser than title by default. subtitle is rendered below the main title object whenever its vertical and horizontal align properties are same as title.

var  chart =  new  CanvasJS.Chart("container",
  {// subtitle 1

  {// subtitle 2

  1. I set my title and subtitle into vertical align: center, but they overlap each other. Is there any way they wont overlap? Or Can I add html tags on my title/subtitle/labels?

    • Donna,

      As of now it is not possible to avoid overlapping when both are displayed at the center. Instead you can show one in the center another at a different location.
