B4J Tutorial javafx charts / graphs - LineChart, PieChart, BarChart, AreaChart, Horizontal BarChart, Stacked BarChart, Stacked AreaChart

This is an "inline java code" example for the javafx line chart. It has very basic functionality at present.

You will need javafx.controls.jar. I found the jar on my computer at:
C:\Java\jdk-11.0.1\jdk-11.0.1\javafx\lib

You can download javafx.controls.jar from here:


Find it on your computer and copy it to your B4J additional libs folder.
The attached project will draw the below line chart (provision for 5 x series to be added)
You can add all the other charts in a similar way (bar charts, pie charts, etc, etc - browse the web to see what other chats are available via javafx.
Check the linechartcolors.css file in the /Files folder of the project - it adds the styling used in this example.

Please note: I have no intention to take this project any further (other than for personal use). Change it and add additional features and classes to your liking

Probably not the best way to do the javafx charts. Best will probably be to do a fully fledged wrapper for it. But it is working.....

Enjoy....;)

Have added some events to LineChart, VerticalBarChart, HorizontalBarChart, PieChart, and StackedBarChart. Click on a series - the labels will display the "value" clicked on (xValue, yValue, seriesName). Have "circled" the reported "clicked-on" values in the below image (values reported in labels that have been added to each of the charts). See the code in "Main" where the labels are added.



JavafxCharts.png


The "events" raised in "Main" - called from the respective chart classes:
B4X:
Sub PieChartValueClicked (mlst As Object)
    Dim mylist As List = mlst
    pclabel.Text = ""
    For i = 0 To mylist.Size - 1
        pclabel.Text = pclabel.Text & mylist.Get(i) & " "
    Next
   
End Sub

Sub linechart_value_clicked (mylist As List)
   
    lclabel.Text = ""
    For i = 0 To mylist.Size-1
        lclabel.Text = lclabel.Text & mylist.get(i) & " "
    Next
   
End Sub

Sub StackedBarChartValueClicked (val As Object)
   
    sbclabel.Text = ""
    Dim mylist As List = val
    For i = 0 To mylist.Size-1
        sbclabel.Text = sbclabel.Text & mylist.get(i) & " "
    Next
   
End Sub

Sub VerticalBarChartValueClicked (val As Object)
   
    vbclabel.Text = ""
    Dim mylist As List = val
    For i = 0 To mylist.Size-1
        vbclabel.Text = vbclabel.Text & mylist.get(i) & " "
    Next
   
End Sub

Sub HorizontalBarChartValueClicked (val As Object)
   
    hbclabel.Text = ""
    Dim mylist As List = val
    For i = 0 To mylist.Size-1
        hbclabel.Text = hbclabel.Text & mylist.get(i) & " "
        Log(mylist.get(i))
    Next
   
End Sub

Here is an update for the Pie Chart:
1. Make sure you have javafx.controls.jar in your B4J additional library folder. See the link in post #1 (above) where you can download it from.
2. Click on button "Toggle" to change the appearance of the Pie Chart
3. Click on a pie slice to view the values (value and label) of the slice that you clicked on
4. Use the handles of the Form and resize the form - the Pie Chart should follow suite.

Have added as many comments as possible to the code

A live Pie Chart (i.e ability to change values on the fly)

1.png


1. Click on a pie slice - the value of the slice clicked on will be displayed in the applicable pie slice. See the code in module Main
B4X:
Sub PieChart_Value_Clicked (mlst As Object)                  'This is an Event and is raised from class "piechart" - the data comes in as a List (passed to here as an object)

    pclabel.Text = ""
    Dim mylist As List = mlst                                'define List and assign the returned object to the list
    'mylist(0) will hold the pie slice name
    'mylist(1) will hold the pic slice value
    'mylist(2) will hold the X position of the slice clicked on
    'mylist(3) will hold the Y position of the slice clicked on
    pclabel.Text = ""

    pclabel.Text = mylist.Get(1)                              'get the slice value
    pclabel.Left = mylist.Get(2) - pclabel.Width/2            'get the X position of the slice clicked on and position the label position correctly
    pclabel.Top = mylist.Get(3) - pclabel.Height/2            'get the Y position of the slice clicked on and position the label position correctly
    pclabel.TextColor = fx.Colors.White                       'set the color of the label displaying the "value" of the pie slice to white
    pclabel.TextSize = 15.0                                      'set the text size of the label displaying the "value" of the pie slice a text size value
    
End Sub
2. Click on button "Toggle" - it will amongst others add / remove a slice (named "Other Fruits")

See the link in post #1 for the required jar that you need in your B4J additional library folder.
Edit the "CSS" file in the /Files folder of the B4J project to apply different colors to the Pie Chart slices

Uncomment this line in the Main module to apply the styles in the "CSS" file:
B4X:
'    MainForm.Stylesheets.Add(File.GetUri(File.DirAssets, "chartcolors.css"))    'uncomment to use the styling in "chartcolors.css" - see the /Files folder

If you want the slices to be displayed as a percentage of all slice values then you need to calculate the % values (x100) in your B4J code.

An update for the pie chart (see post#1 for the link to download javafx.controls.jar - you need to have the jar in your B4J additional libs folder):
