# Components

Some of the samples make reference to a components object. This is an artifact of using a module bundler to build the samples. The creation of that components object is shown below. If chart.js is included as a browser script, these items are accessible via the Chart object, i.e Chart.Tooltip.

// Add Chart components needed in samples here.
// Usable through `components[name]`.
export {Tooltip} from '../../dist/chart.esm';
