Hi, I would like to change the pointStyles to icons (e.g. fontawesome). With the following code it is possible to change the pointstyle to an image. But I can't figure out, how to change it to an icon. Maybe you could help me with that.

               "pointStyle"=> "function() {
                        var yourImage = new Image();
                        yourImage.src ='https://www.w3schools.com/images/lamp.jpg';
                        return yourImage;

Hi Thomas,

I'm not sure about the text icons of FontAwesome but maybe you could try the svg icons as source for your pointStyle's img object:


Let us know if you have any issue with this approach. Thanks!

The svg is showing but I can't change anything. The size and color are fixed, so I can't really use this.

var yourImage = new Image();
                        yourImage.src ='https://raw.githubusercontent.com/FortAwesome/Font-Awesome/master/svgs/solid/calendar.svg';
                        yourImage.style.fill = 'red'; // doesn't work
                        yourImage.className  = 'changeicon'; // doesn't work
                        yourImage.style.height = '100px'; // doesn't work
                        yourImage.style.width = '100px'; // doesn't work
                        return yourImage;

All my tries to implement a svg, didn't work. Do you see another solution?

Hi Thomas,

It seems the image style wouldn't work if it's not attached or displayed. Thus, please try the following method:

<!-- report.view.php -->
<div style="visibility:hidden;">
  <img id="pointStyle" src="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/FortAwesome/Font-Awesome/master/svgs/solid/calendar.svg" style="width: 10px; height: 10px">

var imgElement = document.getElementById('pointStyle');


//render chart here
    pointStyle: "function(){ return imgElement; }()",

One notice though, I don't think svg image has a color fill style:

To change any SVGs color
