# Canvas background

In some use cases you would want a background image or color over the whole canvas. There is no built-in support for this, the way you can achieve this is by writing a custom plugin.

In the two example plugins underneath here you can see how you can draw a color or image to the canvas as background. This way of giving the chart a background is only necessary if you want to export the chart with that specific background. For normal use you can set the background more easily with CSS (opens new window).
