Render JS charts in pdf using WKHTMLTOPDF Tool

I'm using WKHTMLTOPDF for printing the HTML pages.Every thing is working fine but the JS charts are not rendering. I have tried to render the chart

http://www.amcharts.com/tips/plotting-a-bell-curve-chart/

but the page is coming blank in pdf.

What i Have tried :

I have tried the below command for rendering the HTML:

wkhtmltopdf http://example.com/bell.php --javascript-delay 2000 bell.pdf

In which the argument --javascript-delay 2000 is used to display the JS charts and give time to HTML page to render the all required JS.

My Question :-

Is it possible to render the JS charts in PDF using WKHTMLTOPDF ? If yes than where i'm going wrong ?

Chart Code is :

<style>
    #chartdiv {
    width       : 100%;
    height      : 500px;
    font-size   : 11px;
}           
</style>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.amcharts.com/lib/3/amcharts.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.amcharts.com/lib/3/serial.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.amcharts.com/lib/3/themes/light.js"></script>
<div id="chartdiv"></div>

I know this is late, but i just solved this issue, you need to set a specified width for your #chartdiv, try out this new style tag :

<style>
    #chartdiv {
    width       : 750px;
    height      : 500px;
    font-size   : 11px;
}           
</style>
