            backgroundColor: "rgba(151,187,205,0.5)",
            data: users

    window.onload = function() {
        var ctx = document.getElementById("canvas").getContext("2d");
        window.myBar = new Chart(ctx, {
            type: 'bar',
            data: barChartData,
            options: {
                elements: {
