VictoryZoomContainer provides pan and zoom behavior for any Victory component that works with an x, y axis. Zoom events are controlled by scrolling, and panning events are controlled by dragging. See an example of a zoomable chart

VictoryZoomContainer may be used with any Victory component that works with an x-y coordinate system, and should be added as the containerComponent of the top-level component. However, the component that uses it must be standalone (standalone={true}), which is the default for all top-level Victory components.

<VictoryChart domainPadding={{ y: 10 }}
    y={(datum) => Math.sin(2 * Math.PI * datum.x)}


VictoryZoomContainer uses a superset of props used by VictoryContainer. All props are optional.


type: boolean

The optional allowPan prop accepts a boolean that enables the panning functionality. Zooming will still be enabled when the allowPan prop is set to false.

default: allowPan={true}


type: boolean

The optional allowZoom prop accepts a boolean that enables the zoom functionality. Panning will still be enabled when the allowZoom prop is set to false.

default: allowZoom={true}


type: element

VictoryZoomContainer works by clipping data outside of a given domain. VictoryZoomContainer uses VictoryClipContainer by default. This prop should not be replaced with a custom component, but you may want to set props on VictoryClipContainer, such as clipPadding

example: clipContainerComponent={<VictoryClipContainer clipPadding={{top: 10, right: 10}}}/>}


type: number || boolean

The downsample prop limits the number of points that will be displayed. This prop may be given as a boolean or a number corresponding to maximum number of points. When given as a boolean, the maximum number of points that will be plotted is 150.


type: { x: number, y: number }

The minimumZoom prop sets a minimum domain extent for the zoomed chart. When the difference between the maximum and minimum of a zoomed domain is equal to the minimumZoom in either dimension, the component will stop responding to events that would normally trigger zooming in. Zooming out and panning will still be enabled. When this prop is not specified, the default minimum zoom will cover 1 / 1000th of the original domain. This prop should be given as an object with numeric values for x and y.

example: minimumZoom={{x: 1, y: 0.01}}


type: function

The optional onZoomDomainChange prop accepts an function to be called on each update to the visible domain. The function accepts the parameters domain (the updated domain) and props (the props used by VictoryZoomContainer).

example: onZoomDomainChange={(domain, props) => handleDomainChange(domain, props)}


type: { x: [low, high], y: [low, high] }

The zoomDomain prop describes the zoomed state. This prop is an object that specifies separate arrays for x and y. Each array is a tuple that describes the minimum and maximum values to render. If this prop is not provided initially, the chart will render without an initial zoom, displaying the entire dataset. Updates to zoomDomain will trigger a re-render of the chart with the new domain.

example: zoomDomain={{x: [0, 100]}}


type: "x" || "y"

When the zoomDimension prop is set, panning and zooming will be restricted to the given dimension (either x or y), and the domain of the other dimension will remain static. When this prop is not specified, both x and y dimensions will pan and zoom.

example: zoomDimension="x"
