Updating chart inside 'created' event listener

See original GitHub issue

I’m trying to amend the top padding of my chart in a plugin inside the ‘created’ event listener but update() does not seem to work.

Here’s some code:

function myPlugin(options) {
            return function myPlugin(chart) {

                var theChart = chart;

                chart.on('created', function (data) {
               = 160;

The property is updated ok, but there is no visual update - Any ideas?

The true option will make sure existing options will stay but the one you specify will be overriden

Actually you can run chart.update(null, {chartPadding: {top: 100, bottom: 0, left: 0, right: 0}}, true) within your plugin initialization function. Just make sure that you don’t run it inside your created listener.
