Namespace: dc

dc

The entire dc.js library is scoped under the dc name space. It does not introduce anything else into the global name space.

Most dc functions are designed to allow function chaining, meaning they return the current chart instance whenever it is appropriate. The getter forms of functions do not participate in function chaining because they return values that are not the chart, although some, such as .svg and .xAxis, return values that are themselves chainable d3 objects.

Example

// Example chaining
chart.width(300)
     .height(300)
     .filter('sunday');

Members


<static> dateFormat :function

The default date format for dc.js

Type:
  • function
Default Value:
  • d3.timeFormat('%m/%d/%Y')
Source:

<static> disableTransitions :Boolean

If this boolean is set truthy, all transitions will be disabled, and changes to the charts will happen immediately.

Type:
  • Boolean
Default Value:
  • false

Methods


<static> deregisterAllCharts(group)

Clear given group if one is provided, otherwise clears all groups.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
group String

Group name

Source:

<static> deregisterChart(chart [, group])

Remove given chart instance from the given group, creating the group if necessary. If no group is provided, the default group dc.constants.DEFAULT_CHART_GROUP will be used.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
chart Object

dc.js chart instance

group String <optional>

Group name

Source:

<static> filterAll( [group])

Clear all filters on all charts within the given chart group. If the chart group is not given then only charts that belong to the default chart group will be reset.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
group String <optional>
Source:

<static> hasChart(chart)

Determine if a given chart instance resides in any group in the registry.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
chart Object

dc.js chart instance

Source:
Returns:
Type
Boolean

<static> pluck(n [, f])

Returns a function that given a string property name, can be used to pluck the property off an object. A function can be passed as the second argument to also alter the data being returned.

This can be a useful shorthand method to create accessor functions.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
n String
f function <optional>
Source:
Returns:
Type
function
Examples
var xPluck = dc.pluck('x');
var objA = {x: 1};
xPluck(objA) // 1
var xPosition = dc.pluck('x', function (x, i) {
    // `this` is the original datum,
    // `x` is the x property of the datum,
    // `i` is the position in the array
    return this.radius + x;
});
dc.selectAll('.circle').data(...).x(xPosition);

<static> redrawAll( [group])

Redraw all charts belong to the given chart group. If the chart group is not given then only charts that belong to the default chart group will be re-drawn. Redraw is different from re-render since when redrawing dc tries to update the graphic incrementally, using transitions, instead of starting from scratch.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
group String <optional>
Source:

<static> refocusAll( [group])

Reset zoom level / focus on all charts that belong to the given chart group. If the chart group is not given then only charts that belong to the default chart group will be reset.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
group String <optional>
Source:

<static> registerChart(chart [, group])

Add given chart instance to the given group, creating the group if necessary. If no group is provided, the default group dc.constants.DEFAULT_CHART_GROUP will be used.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
chart Object

dc.js chart instance

group String <optional>

Group name

Source:

<static> renderAll( [group])

Re-render all charts belong to the given chart group. If the chart group is not given then only charts that belong to the default chart group will be re-rendered.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
group String <optional>
Source:

<static> transition(selection [, duration] [, delay] [, name])

Start a transition on a selection if transitions are globally enabled (dc.disableTransitions is false) and the duration is greater than zero; otherwise return the selection. Since most operations are the same on a d3 selection and a d3 transition, this allows a common code path for both cases.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
selection d3.selection

the selection to be transitioned

duration Number | function <optional>
250

the duration of the transition in milliseconds, a function returning the duration, or 0 for no transition

delay Number | function <optional>

the delay of the transition in milliseconds, or a function returning the delay, or 0 for no delay

name String <optional>

the name of the transition (if concurrent transitions on the same elements are needed)

Source:
Returns:
Type
d3.transition | d3.selection
