This section is regarding Methods and Properties available in the Chart element.

Example :
    chart.set(“zoomEnabled”, true, true)//re-renders chart after setting the value
    chart.set(“zoomEnabled”, true, false)//chart will not render after setting the value. You need to call chart.render() if updateChart is set to false
