NG2-Charts Can’t bind to ‘datasets’ since it isn’t a known property of ‘canvas’

I am trying to use the basic example of NG2-Charts (http://valor-software.com/ng2-charts/)

I copy pasted the HTML part

  <div style="display: block">
    <canvas baseChart
        [datasets]="barChartData"
        [labels]="barChartLabels"
        [options]="barChartOptions"
        [legend]="barChartLegend"
        [chartType]="barChartType"
        (chartHover)="chartHovered($event)"
        (chartClick)="chartClicked($event)"></canvas>
  </div>

and the TypeScript part

  private barChartOptions: any = {
    scaleShowVerticalLines: false,
    responsive: true
  };
  private barChartLabels: string[] = ['2006', '2007', '2008', '2009', '2010', '2011', '2012'];
  private barChartType: string = 'bar';
  private barChartLegend: boolean = true;

  private barChartData: any[] = [
    { data: [65, 59, 80, 81, 56, 55, 40], label: 'Series A' },
    { data: [28, 48, 40, 19, 86, 27, 90], label: 'Series B' }
  ];

  // events
  private chartClicked(e: any): void {
      console.log(e);
  }

  private chartHovered(e: any): void {
      console.log(e);
  }

I run npm install ng2-charts --save, npm install chart.js --save and typings install dt~chart.js --save --global

I also imported chart.js in my vendor.ts file

import 'chart.js';

My dependencies:

{
    "@angular/common": "^2.0.0",
    "@angular/compiler": "2.0.0",
    "@angular/core": "2.0.0",
    "@angular/forms": "2.0.0",

The NG2-Charts website says I need to include this in the HTML

<script src="node_modules/chart.js/src/chart.js"></script>

But I think thats not correct because how would that statement work in a productive minified / built app? I also thought my webpack import statement would already take care of that? I googled around but sadly only found stuff for some Angular 2 Beta version on NG2 Charts.

Does anyone has an idea on how to fix that?

Thanks and Cheers, Raphael Hippe

Answer

Try importing ChartsModule in your app.module.ts like this-

import { ChartsModule } from 'ng2-charts/ng2-charts';

imports: [
   .....
   ChartsModule
   .....
]
