How to determine containing element from chart event


When I have multiple charts on a page, I want to use the same Javascript event handlers for each.  I need to be able to get to the containing element of the chart which raised the event. At the moment I'm struggling to work out how to do this from the sender parameter. Is there a way to do this, or any other workarounds you can suggest?






                    // ...            

                     load: 'onload',

                   // ...          





                    // ...            

                     load: 'onload',

                   // ...          



function onload(sender) {

// How to determine which element contains the chart which is the source of the event? 

// var container = $("#container1") or $("#container2"), etc...

Hi Chris,

Thanks for using Syncfusion product.

We have analyzed this and replicated the scenario shown, in our sample.

Consider the below example. This page has two div namely container1 and container2 which is used to render chart.

The below screen shot shows this.

To get the id of the div on chart load, the below code snippet is used


function onchartload(sender){                                               // method called on chart load

        alert("on load of the chart in the div: " +this._id);   // to display alert box


We coded to display an alert box which shows the id of the div on chart load. The below screen shot shows this.

We have also attached the sample in the below location for your reference.

Please let us know if you have any concern.
