SVGGraph with responsive design
Enabling dynamic sizing with auto_fit
Version 2.17 of SVGGraph adds an option to change the attributes of the
svg element to make the SVG fit into its container. This option
auto_fit, which is off (
false) by default.
true changes the SVG width
and height attributes to 100% instead of the pixel values supplied in the
SVGGraph constructor. The width and height are still required as they set the
native size that SVGGraph uses for positioning elements inside the SVG, and is
included in the SVG
viewBox attribute to tell the browser the
extents of the graphic. The examples on this page have been given
a native width of 700 pixels and a height of 220 pixels, since the largest
space for the graph is 700 pixels wide.
The example above uses an
embed element with a style attribute
to set the width of the graph to 100% of the width of the containing
Try resizing your browser to see it in action.
<div> <embed src="svg/auto_fit.php" type="image/svg+xml" style="width: 100%"> </div>
The relevant SVGGraph settings are shown in the fragment of PHP code below. I've used a large font for the labels and tooltips because the text scales along with the rest of the SVG content, and also increased some of the spacing to make things clearer at a reduced size. The tooltip offset has been increased so that the tooltip does not end up under the cursor when the graph is scaled down.
$settings = array( 'auto_fit' => true, 'axis_font_size' => 24, 'axis_text_space' => 10, 'tooltip_font_size' => 24, 'tooltip_offset' => 20, 'crosshairs' => true, 'crosshairs_text_font_size' => 20, ); $graph = new SVGGraph(700, 220, $settings);
auto_fit option also works with the contents of the SVG
embedded directly into the page with the SVGGraph
The example below uses the same code as the one above, fetching a
GroupedBarGraph instead of the
for the first example.
The PHP code for the settings and constructor are the same, but this time the SVG is rendered in the page:
While you can alter the colours and other attributes of the SVG content using CSS in the page, the font sizes used for text inside the SVG are relative to the SVG document and so will not be affected by any CSS rules.
