How to integrate custom D3.js Chart widget with PivotClient

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejPivotClient

This KB illustrates that how to integrate custom D3.js Chart widget with PivotClient control


To add and render a custom D3.js Chart (third party), we can use our PivotChart JSON information, which can be transformed to an appropriate JSON format to render the D3.js Chart widget in the sample page. The same can be achieved in the script section, under a simple button click event. For creating a custom D3.js Chart widget, we need to refer the following JavaScript libraries under the HTML “head” tag.

JavaScript Libraries - D3.js Chart

    <script src="http://d3js.org/d3.v3.min.js"></script>
    <script src="http://labratrevenge.com/d3-tip/javascripts/d3.tip.v0.6.3.js"></script>


The code sample below illustrates on how to add a custom D3.js Chart widget with PivotClient control.


    .axis path,
    .axis line {
        fill: none;
        stroke: #000;
        shape-rendering: crispEdges;
    .bar {
        fill: orange;
    .bar:hover {
        fill: orangered;
    .x.axis path {
        display: none;
    .d3-tip {
        line-height: 1;
        font-weight: bold;
        padding: 12px;
        background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.8);
        color: #fff;
        border-radius: 2px;
    Creates a small triangle extender for the tooltip .d3-tip:after {
        box-sizing: border-box;
        display: inline;
        font-size: 10px;
        width: 100%;
        line-height: 1;
        color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.8);
        content: "\25BC";
        position: absolute;
        text-align: center;
    Style northward tooltips differently .d3-tip.n:after {
        margin: -1px 0 0 0;
        top: 100%;
        left: 0;
