I have combed through KB articles and other documentations and samples here and SO, but I am not able to fix the issue. I am desperate for any help.

I have a react app that shows the chart, but at the top of the page, I have a header section and the remaining height is filled with Chart. All the samples and answers that I have seen thus far has no header section on the page. So the chart is 100% filled within it’s container. But, in my case the chart does not fit its container width & height and I end up with a scroll-bar. This is especially evident when you maximize the page (Chrome maximize window).

I am on Windows 10.

I have attached the code and a screen-shot of what the resulting page in Chrome. I have tried with and without CSS and it made no difference in terms of chart filling its container.

React Code:

import { useCallback, useEffect, useState } from 'react';
import { createRoot } from 'react-dom/client';
import './Chart-styles.scss';
import { SciChartSurface } from 'scichart/Charting/Visuals/SciChartSurface';
import { NumericAxis } from 'scichart/Charting/Visuals/Axis/NumericAxis';
import { getSciChartLicense } from '../common/chartUtils';

const Chart = () => {
const [chartId] = useState('line-chart');

const initChartAsync = useCallback(async () => {
    const { sciChartSurface, wasmContext } = await SciChartSurface.create(chartId);

    const xAxis = new NumericAxis(wasmContext);
    const yAxis = new NumericAxis(wasmContext);
}, []);

useEffect(() => {
        .catch(error => {
            console.error('ChartRenderer | useEffect | initChartAsync failed!', error);
}, [chartId]);

return (
    <div className="App">
        <div className='App-header'>
            <h2>Chart Header</h2>
            <h3>Chart Sub-Header</h3>
            style={{width: '100%', height: '100%'}}

const container = document.getElementById('app');
const root = createRoot(container!);


#app {
    display: flex;
    flex-flow: column nowrap;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;

.App {
    flex: 1 1 auto;
    display: flex;
    flex-flow: column nowrap;
    text-align: center;

.App-header {
    flex: 0 1 auto;
    display: flex;
    flex-flow: column nowrap;
    background-color: #855b24;
    color: white;
    h2 {
        background-color: #2e2e2d;
        flex: 0 1 auto;
        margin: 0;
        padding: 2px;
    h3 {
        background-color: #5c5c5b;
        flex: 0 1 auto;
        margin: 0;
        padding: 2px;

#line-chart {
    flex: 1 1 auto;

I am wondering if there may be some guidance on how to configure the styles for the SciChart.js chart instance in a React application to be able to handle dynamic changes to the height value.

The scenario is that the chart and wasm context are being saved in refs, so that the component the chart exists within does not rerender. Data is being consumed via a web socket, and streaming realtime data.

All that is well and good, but trying to implement a new feature request where the height of the chart changes dynamically, similar to an accordion style where the chart may have a full view, a split view, or no view (92vh, 46vh, 0vh)

I am finding that my css styles are not applying, or frustratingly will apply seemingly at random and other times not apply even though the underlying code remains the same. I tried to override, or at least alter, the position absolute styles of the canvas, by wrapping it in a parent element with position relative, which works to keep the height and width of the chart as desired, but the aspect ratio seems to falter and the chart axes are blurred and illegible.

I’m sure this would be a great instance of a picture says a 1000 words, and I am nearing a 1000 words. Will try to attach a codepen/ example that demonstrates the issue I am experiencing.

If there are any tips or tricks you would recommend please advise
