The Chart component uses plugin components to visualize data specified via the
data property. Each plugin component implements a particular feature and should be defined within the Chart component.

EventTracker- allows you to handle a click on a point or series.

Chart plugins use different components to render the UI. You can implement your component suite or use a predefined suite:
The plugin order is important. Series plugins are rendered in the same order as they are defined in the Chart component. For example, if the
BarSeries plugin precedes the
LineSeries, the line series overlays the bar series.
A plugin’s dependencies should be declared before the plugin. For example, the
Stack plugin depends on series plugins. If several series should be stacked, declare their plugins before
Stack. This also applies to plugins that extend the functionality of other plugins. For example, a plugin that extends the
EventTracker’s functionality should be declared after the
NOTE: Refer to the plugin’s reference for information on its dependencies.
