Insert Chart Values & Labels with correspondent values

Insert Chart Values & Labels with correspondent values
0

I’m trying to build a chart with CanvaJS and rendering it with Handlebars.

After a FETCH I have my information inside this const called House after this I have a forEach and push each value inside expenses and label.

 const houses = data.house;

      var expenses = [];
      var label = [];
      houses.forEach(house => {
        expenses.push(house.total);
        label.push(house._id);
      });

And this is the result I have after the foreach

When I go to render the chart I want to insert in the 'Y: the value of the expense but I want the correspondent label. The way I build it I can’t match the right expense value with the label.

if (chartContainer) {
        var chart = new CanvasJS.Chart("chartContainer", {
          title: {
            text: "Total Expenses"
          },
          data: [
            {
              type: "column",
              dataPoints: [
                { y: expenses[0], label: "Water" },
                { y: expenses[1], label: "Wifi" },
                { y: 2, label: "Gas" },
                { y: 1, label: "Electricity" },
                { y: 0, label: "Others" }
              ]
            }
          ]
        });
        chart.render();
      }

Any idea how I can change the function or the arrays and insert the values in the corresponding label?

was expecting:

dataPoints: [ 
{ y: expenses[0], label: label[0]}, 
{ y: expenses[1], label: label[1]}, 
....
]

Can you build this Array beforehand?

i.e. something like

let houseData = houses.map( h => {
 return(
    { y: h.total, label: h._id }
 )
});

then; you’d just have:

if (chartContainer) {
        var chart = new CanvasJS.Chart("chartContainer", {
          title: {
            text: "Total Expenses"
          },
          data: [
            {
              type: "column",
              dataPoints: houseData
            }
          ]
        });
        chart.render();
      }
