B4J Library [B4X] [XUI] xChart Class and b4xlib

Current version 9.2

A lite version is now available: xChartLite.

The xChart Class does exist as a class and a B4X libary.
It works on all three platforms: B4A, B4i and B4J.
The xChart.b4xlib and the xChart.xml files are attached.
You need to copy the xChart.b4xlib file to the AdditionlLibraries\B4X folder!
Don’t copy the xChart.xml file to the AdditionalLibraries folder, copy it in another folder for all b4xlib xml files.
Example: AdditionlLibraries\B4XlibXMLFiles
The xChart.xml file is for help purposes and is useful with the B4X Help Viewer or the B4XObjectBrowser.
The xChart.xml was generated with this tool: b4xlib - XML generation

Learning B4XViews and XUI, I wrote this CustomView xChart Class.
The xChart.bas file is located in the B4J and shared, relative link, in B4A and B4i.
The code is exactly the same, one class file, for all three platforms.

It is an evolution of Erels' Android Charts Framework.

It has automatic scales, linear and logarithmic, automatic text size according to the chart size.
These can also be set manually.

Demo projects for all three platforms.
Tested on PC, Android Samsung S10, Samsung Tab S2, iPhone 8 and iPad.
B4XPagesxChartDemoV8_8.zip A B4XPages cross platform project using the xChart library, you need to copy the xChart.b4xlib file into your AdditionalLibraries\B4X folder.
B4JLogScaleV8_8.zip B4J project showing the logarithmic scales, it uses also the xChart library.
xChart.b4xlib The xChart B4X library file. You must copy it into your your AdditionalLibraries\B4X folder.
xChart.xml Help file, it is useful with the B4X Help Viewer or the B4XObjectBrowser.
Don’t copy the xChart.xml file to the AdditionalLibraries folder! Look above.

This image is from the B4JLogScale demo project, there is only a B4J project to show logarithmic scale examples.
The principles is the same for the two other platforms.

YX_CHART with display of the cursor position.
When the cursor is on a point, the cross-hair color changes to the curve color and a circle is drawn at the point if no points are drawn.

Thanks it is great ! Just a little advice , if possible , can you add gradient color selection to coloring the charts , it may seem a little thing but it changes the visuals of the graphs very much.

I was also thinking about it. Next week I will add a class that makes it simple to create cross platform gradients with BitmapCreator.

What is the prupose of gradiend colors ?
If it is to make the gradient colors in relation with the values, this would make sense for single bar charts.

Very nice! I'm developing a web system with php and code igniter and really would like to have these sort of tools there. But well, I will use when develop the mobile version :)

no it is just for a better visual . When you compare a single color filled pie chart to a gradient color chart , you can see that the gradient pie chart gives a better feeling of depth than regular color charts. For example: https://github.com/flot/flot/pull/853

AS I said earlier it is just for better visuals.

I am 'old fashioned', I would never had thought about gradient colors for visual purpose.
I am much more concentrated on the values rather the aesthetics.
BTW, I would never use a donut chart, like the one in your link.

I totally respect that :) Why I advised it is because I know your graph lib is a very powerful one with the values or on programming basis but the "feeling" of the apps are in visuals, I always had to use a webview to display charts from charts.js for example because when I use a graph lib I find here on the forum, it looks a little bit 'old fashioned" as you call :)

anyways , it is your lib I just said it would be good if it is easy for you to add :)
Thanks for the great lib

I am always open for constructive suggestions.
I will wait for Erels' cross platform gradients with BitmapCreator and look what could be done.

Looks really great. Thank you Klaus.

Will I be able to use this in ABMaterial ?
