As some of you may know I work in a financial institution and one of my colleagues convinced me to share my knowledge of digital financial tools like working with WPF charts. So this post will be somehow different, not so much about the recreation but more about work 🙂
So here it is:
How Do You Make a Chart on Android?
Android is the world’s most popular mobile operating system, and for good reason. It offers rich functionality, excellent security, and is also incredibly intuitive. Google is the world leader in mobile technology, and there are quite a few brands out there that use Android as their mobile operating system, with a skin on top for customisation. Needless to say, the app support on Android is unparalleled.
For app developers who have to create apps for the financial sector, or for scientific sectors, one of the most important things to add is integration for charts. Charts are commonly used in a variety of different apps, and they must be properly integrated in the app. However, developing the infrastructure for adding charts from the get-go is quite difficult, so most app developers often use third-party integrations. Android charts can be easily added in your network with minimal hassle.
A great option for people who want to add WPF charts into the mix is Scichart. There are quite a few advantages that they offer, and making charts is incredibly easy. So, let’s talk about making charts on Android.
Add a Third-Party Integration
Adding a third-party integration is the best way to go if you are interested in adding charts to your application. WPF charts offer real-time performance and allow you to create beautiful 2D and 3D charts using Java, Kotlin, and even Xamarin.Android. There’s a feature-rich library of different kinds of charts that you can choose from, allowing you to diversify and select only those charts that are most suitable.
The customisable API really allows you to get the best out of your Android charts. They are designed to be optimised according to the needs of the user, so you don’t have to worry about using the same features as in other charts. There are a range of different APIs that you can choose from, including the ChartModifier API, the PaletteProvider API, and various others.
You also have the option of styling, along with per-point colouring that allows you to use colour bars and columns. On top of that, you can also link multiple charts to present the data in a better and more efficient fashion. These are just some of the many ways by which charts can be created on Android, and if you have a good developer, they can do an excellent job for you.
