Chapter 7. Theming

We have created different types of charts. However, we did not do much about their styling—the fonts, color, background, animation, and so on. Styling is an important aspect of chart development and integrating charts into an application so that their look and feel gels with the overall application's look and feel. This chapter will focus solely on that aspect. In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Styling a chart and its background

  • Styling axes

  • Styling different types of series

  • Styling markers

  • Styling legends

  • Styling tooltips

  • Styling labels

Sencha Charts offers three different mechanisms to style different aspects of a chart:

  • Using configs

  • Using a custom chart theme

  • Using SASS

We will look at each one of these in detail to understand how we can offer a great looking chart to our users.
