Using Series

From Documentation

Another way to add data to a chart is through Series. You have to use Series to combine multiple types of chart in one chart component like this demo because each Series can be rendered as different chart types.

Create a Series

You don't need to instantiate Series by yourselves, just call getSeries(index) and its underlying implementation creates for you:

Charts chart;
Series series0 = chart.getSeries(0);
Series series1 = chart.getSeries(1);

Add Data Into a Series

Call setData() to add data points to the series, and data could be Double, Integer, Number. If you want to show category, pass Point as parameters.

Here is a simple example.

public class SeriesComposer extends SelectorComposer<Window> {

    Charts chart;
    public void doAfterCompose(Window comp) throws Exception {

	private void initData() {
		Series series0 = chart.getSeries(0);
		series0.setData(new Point("apples", 5), new Point("pears", 9), new Point("oragnes", 4), new Point("bannas", 8), new Point("grapes", 10));
		Series series1 = chart.getSeries(1);
		series1.setData(new Point("apples", 2),  new Point("pears", 1),new Point("oragnes", 3), new Point("bannas", 5), new Point("grapes", 9));
  • Line 14: If there is missing points, just pass null like new Point("category", null)

Clear/Remove Series

	@Listen("onClick = #clear")
	public void clear(){
		int seriesSize = chart.getSeriesSize();
		for (int i = 0; i < seriesSize; i++){
  • getSeriesSize() changes for each removal
