What is the best way to position a chart.js onto a web page?


I have created a few charts using chart.js and am trying to position them onto my webpage using css. However I am not having much luck. Below is what I was thinking, but if you know how to do this, I would appreciate your help, as my attempts are not yet working.


 <div id="lineGraph" class="canvasContainer"> <!--opening lineGraph-->

         <canvas id="myLineChart" max-height="300" max-width="800"></canvas>

    </div><!--closing lineGraph-->


.canvas-container {
max-height: 300px;
max-width: 800px;
position: relative;

   #myLineChart {
height: 200px;
width: 600px;
position: absolute;
left: 25%;
top: 25%;

Hi Tracy,

Your class in the HTML doesn't match your class in the CSS:

class="canvasContainer" .canvas-container

This could be your issue
