I posted about the various googleVis axis options for base charts, such as line, bar and area charts earlier, but I somehow forgot to mention how to set the axes limits.**mages' blog**, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers].

Unfortunately, there are no arguments such as

`ylim`

and `xlim`

. Instead, the Google Charts axes options are set via `hAxes`

and `vAxes`

, with *h*and

*v*indicating the horizontal and vertical axis. More precisely, I have to set

`viewWindowMode : 'explicit'`

and set the `viewWindow`

to the desired `min`

and `max`

values. Additionally, I have to wrap all of this in `[{}]`

brackets as those settings are sub-options of `h/vAxes`

. There are also options `minValue`

and `maxValue`

, but they only allow you to extend the axes ranges.Here is a minimal example, setting the y-axis limits from 0 to 10:

With more than one variable to plot I can use the

`series`

argument to decide which variables I want on the left and right axes and set the `viewWindow`

accordingly. Again, here is a minimal example:### Session Info
