Advertisements

Following is an example of a timelines chart with custom color. We've already seen the configuration used to draw this chart in Google Charts Configuration Syntax chapter. So, let's see the complete example.

Configurations

We've used timelines configuration to hide row labels.

// Set chart options
var options = {
   colors: ['#cbb69d', '#603913', '#c69c6e']
};
