Title and Subtitle

Title and subtitle are textual elements that give an idea of what the Chart visualizes.

DevExtreme HTML5 JavaScript Charts Title Subtitle

The title is configured by the title object. The subtitle is configured by the subtitle object nested in the title object.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#chartContainer").dxChart({
        // ...
        title: {
            text: "I am the Title",
            subtitle: {
                text: "I am the Subtitle"
            }
        }
    });
});

<dx-chart ... >
    <dxo-title

                text="I am the Subtitle"
            />
        </DxTitle>
    </DxChart>
</template>

<script>
import DxChart, {
    DxTitle,
    DxSubtitle
} from 'devextreme-vue/chart';

export default {
    components: {
        DxChart,
        DxTitle,
        DxSubtitle
    }
}
</script>
React
App.js
import React from 'react';
import Chart, {
    Title,
    Subtitle
} from 'devextreme-react/chart';

class App extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return (
            <Chart ... >
                <Title text="I am the Title">
                    <Subtitle text="I am the Subtitle" />
                </Title>
            </Chart>
        );
    }
}

export default App;

You can set the title's text more concisely by assigning it directly to the title option. This is useful if you are satisfied with the default settings of the title and do not need a subtitle.
