The simple Chart API is described in detail in [BPS66]. This example shows many chart properties being changed within the beforeFactory eventHandler. For example to change the chart output type the following script can be used.

 //first get handle to the chart (Name your Charts)
 //Before Factory
var chart1 = this.getReportElement( "Chart1" );

Many examples exist in the example report, including changing titles, dimensions, fonts, etc.
