VictoryZoomContainer

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.

            

Props

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

zoomDomain

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]}}

minimumZoom

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}}

dimension

When the dimension 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: dimension="x"

onDomainChange

The optional onDomainChange prop accepts an function to be called on each update to the visible domain. The function accepts a single parameter of domain.

example: onDomainChange={(domain) => handleDomainChange(domain)}

allowZoom

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

default: allowZoom={true}

clipContainerComponent

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}}}/>}

Standard Container Props

style

The style prop defines the style of the container, and should be given as an object of SVG style attributes. The width and height should be specified via props instead of style attributes as they determine relative layout for components.

example: style={{border: "1px solid #ccc"}}

default (provided by default theme): VictoryTheme.grayscale. See VictoryTheme for more detail.

responsive

The responsive prop specifies whether the rendered container should be a responsive container with a viewBox attribute, or a static container with absolute width and height.

default: responsive={true}

width and height

The width and height props determine the width and height of the containing <svg>. By default VictoryContainer renders responsive containers with the viewBox attribute set to viewBox="0, 0, width, height" and width="100%", height="auto". In responsive containers, the width and height props affect the aspect ratio of the rendered component, while the absolute width and height are determined by the container. To render a static container, set responsive={false}

example: width={350}

events

The events prop attaches arbitrary event handlers to the container element. This prop should be given as an object of event names and corresponding [React event handlers]. Events defined directly via this prop will be masked by defaultEvents on VictorySelectionContainer (onMouseDown, onMouseUp, and onMouseMove), and by any events defined through Victory's event system that target parent elements.

example: events={{onClick: (evt) => alert("x: " + evt.clientX)}}

title

The title prop specifies the title to be applied to the SVG to assist with accessibility for screen readers. The more descriptive this title is, the more useful it will be for people using screen readers

example: title="Popularity of Dog Breeds by Percentage"

desc

The desc prop specifies the description of the chart/SVG to assist with accessibility for screen readers. The more descriptive this title is, the more useful it will be for people using screen readers.

example: desc="Golden retreivers make up 30%, Labs make up 25%, and other dog breeds are not represented above 5% each."

portalComponent

The portalComponent prop takes a component instance which will be used as a container for children that should render inside a top-level container so that they will always appear above other elements. VictoryTooltip renders inside a portal so that tooltips always render above data. VictoryPortal is used to define elements that should render in the portal container. This prop defaults to Portal, and should only be overridden when changing rendered elements from SVG to another type of element e.g., react-native-svg elements.

default: portalComponent={<Portal/>}

theme

The theme prop specifies a theme to use for determining styles and layout props for a component. Any styles or props defined in theme may be overridden by props specified on the component instance. By default, components use a grayscale theme. Read more about themes here.

example: theme={VictoryTheme.material}

onTouchStart (native only)

The optional onTouchStart prop takes a function that is called on every touch event on the chart (when using victory-native). The most common use of onTouchStart is to prevent the chart's parent ScrollView from scrolling, so that the chart and container can be interacted with unencumbered. The function accepts a single parameter, event, a React Native Synthetic Event. Also see onTouchEnd.

example:

<ScrollView scrollEnabled={this.state.scrollEnabled}>
  <VictoryChart
    containerComponent={
      <VictoryContainer
        onTouchStart={() => this.setState({ scrollEnabled: false })}
        onTouchEnd={() => this.setState({ scrollEnabled: true })}
      />
    }
  >
   <VictoryBar/>
  </VictoryChart>
</ScrollView>

onTouchEnd (native only)

The optional onTouchEnd prop takes a function that is called at the conclusion of every touch event on the chart (when using victory-native). The most common use of onTouchEnd is to prevent the chart's parent ScrollView from scrolling, so that the chart and container can be interacted with unencumbered. The function accepts a single parameter, event, a React Native Synthetic Event. Also see onTouchStart.
