Hi there!

When I try to draw text on a simple bar chart like this:

var x = bar.canvas.width / 2;
var y = bar.Get('gutter.top') - 5;
var text = new RGraph.Drawing.Text('cvs', x, y, 'An example of the drawing API text object')
.Set('valign', 'bottom')
.Set('halign', 'center')
.Set('size', 14)
.Set('tooltips', ['The drawing API text object'])
.Set('tooltips.event', 'mousemove')
.Set('highlight.stroke', 'rgba(0,0,0,0)')

I get the following javascript error:

"Uncaught Type Error: Cannot read property 'Text' of undefined"

I correctly include all the relative libraries, expecially the drawing API, so I cannot figure out what is the problem.

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

The page is saying that RGraph.Drawing is undefined - so it looks like you haven't included the drawing API. If you think you have then you might have a 404, Try going to the URL of the JavaScript file directly in your browser - eg:

Hi Richard

I get a similar problem " TypeError: text is undefined." on the following webpage:


i updated to the newest version of the website today.

Hi there,

Looking at the list of libraries at the bottom of the page you haven't included the drawing API text library:

<script src="RGraph.drawing.text.js"></script>
