The Telerik UI for Xamarin Charts features a large collection of chart and graph types and series that allow you to visualize data according to the native Desktop, iOS and Android standards. You can benefit from different chart and graph types, like Line, Area or Spline Area, compare sets of data with horizontal or vertical Bar Charts and/or illustrate proportions with Pie Charts or Donut charts. In addition, the Xamarin.Forms Charts control has some features specific for the finance industry and provides support for the OHLC and Candlestick financial series.
The Telerik UI for Xamarin Chart is designed with the sole purpose of helping developers achieve their exact requirements and make them more productive. We have put a lot of effort in keeping the perfect balance between the three main pillars - easy to implement and work with, highly customizable look and feel and great performance with large volumes of data.
Telerik UI for Xamarin Bar charts can be either horizontal or vertical (also called column chart). This graph is among the most commonly used and it is highly suitable for comparing different types of data.
With the Telerik UI for Xamarin Line graph you can represent data that spreads in equal intervals. You can customize the axis to show numeric, categorical and date/time points, enabling you to plot any type of data.
The Telerik UI for Xamarin Spline graph draws curved instead of straight lines in order to allow smooth data representation. Just as in the Xamarin Line chart, the axis can be configured to show numeric, categorical or date/time points.
Telerik UI for Xamarin Area graphs are another way to visualize data that spreads in time. However, it is used for showing or comparing the areas for different data points. You can customize the axis to show numeric, categorical and date/time points, giving you wide customization options.
The Telerik UI for Xamarin Pie chart is one of our circular graphs that is best for representing data in percentage and comparing its different data points to one another.
The Telerik UI for Xamarin Donut graph is another form of the common Pie chart, where more than one set of data can be visually represented in a clean and coherent way. This is a useful approach to compare data more easily with respect to time.
Our Xamarin.Forms Charts widgets feature the two common financial series – Ohlc and Candlestick. Both these represent the same data – a set of four values defining the price of a financial instrument for a given time period – Open, High, Low, Close. In addition, a number of common financial indicators are built to the graphs, varying from simple moving average to stochastic slow and fast indicators.
The Telerik UI for Xamarin Charts Legend feature displays a set of items, which correspond to the chart content making it easy for you to provide descriptions for the series visualized within the control. Both Categorical/scatter and pie charts are supported.
With support for data points and series, our Xamarin.Forms Charts allow you to select part of the series or the whole data set at once. This behavior brings additional interactivity to the control and makes the data easier for your users to work with.
You can use annotations in your Telerik UI for Xamarin Charts whenever you need to highlight certain areas or points on the plot. The Grid Line annotation is vertical or horizontal line crossing the entire plot area, useful for visualizing data targets and thresholds. The Plot Band annotation on the other hand visualizes an area instead of a line and is useful for indicating intervals. You can define annotations on any point of the plot area and customize their appearance.
The Telerik UI for Xamarin Chart offers various interactivity features, like tooltip, trackball, pan and zoom. You can use tooltip to visualize information about a specific data point. The trackball allows for even greater precision when reading the Xamarin.Forms graph data. It displays a vertical line across the chart plot area and visual indicators at points where the trackball line crosses the visualization of a series object. The Pan and Zoom allow users to zoom in the chart plot area in cases of a dense concentration of data points for easier readability. The pan functionality allows moving the visible area of the graph when it is zoomed in.
With the Null Value Support, the data in the Telerik UI for Xamarin Chart that contains missing records with be properly visualized for the end user.
The control has built-in localization support, which makes it easy to localize your app to any language your project demands. In addition, the control also features globalization capabilities, so it reflects the device culture and uses it to present the user with the appropriate culture-specific formats.
