It is possible to get the object of the chart after rendering the control with the help of instance method. The following code example shows you how to get the chart object in a button click. Using this object, you can change the chart properties and redraw the chart again.

<div id="container"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
function display() {
    var chart = $("#container").ejChart("instance");
