Responsive Chart.js Example with AJAX Callback
<canvas id="invoice_status_chart" min-height="300" max-height="500"></canvas>
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
var invoice_status_data = {};
function invoice_status_chart() {
var can = jQuery('#invoice_status_chart');
var ctx = can.get(0).getContext("2d");
var container = can.parent().parent(); // get width from proper parent
var $container = jQuery(container);
can.attr('width', $container.width()); //max width
can.attr('height', $container.height()); //max height
var chart = new Chart(ctx).Doughnut(invoice_status_data);
var invoice_status_data = function () { ajaxurl, {
action: 'callback_id',
data: 'invoice_statuses',
security: 'nonce'
function( data ) {
invoice_status_data = [
value: data.status_temp,
highlight: "#363B3F",
