How to Use Google Chart?

To use Google Chart in your web page, add a link to the charts loader:

<script
src="https://www.gstatic.com/charts/loader.js">
</script>

Google Chart is easy to use.

Just add a <div> element to display the chart:

<div id="myChart" style="max-width:700px; height:400px"></div>

The <div> element must have a unique id.

Then load the Google Graph API:

  1. Load the Visualization API and the corechart package
  2. Set a callback function to call when the API is loaded
1 google.charts.load('current',{packages:['corechart']});

2 google.charts.setOnLoadCallback(drawChart);

That's all!

  [110,10],[120,11],[130,14],[140,14],[150,15]
  ]);
