class altair.AutoSizeParams(contains=Undefined, resize=Undefined, type=Undefined, **kwds)#

AutoSizeParams schema wrapper

containsLiteral[‘content’, ‘padding’]

Determines how size calculation should be performed, one of "content" or "padding". The default setting ( "content" ) interprets the width and height settings as the data rectangle (plotting) dimensions, to which padding is then added. In contrast, the "padding" setting includes the padding within the view size calculations, such that the width and height settings indicate the total intended size of the view.

Default value : "content"


A boolean flag indicating if autosize layout should be re-calculated on every view update.

Default value : false

typeAutosizeType, Literal[‘pad’, ‘none’, ‘fit’, ‘fit-x’, ‘fit-y’]

The sizing format type. One of "pad", "fit", "fit-x", "fit-y", or "none". See the autosize type documentation for descriptions of each.

Default value : "pad"
