Qml Charts Example

This basic demonstration shows how to use the different chart types by using qml.

Running the Example

To run the example from Qt Creator, open the Welcome mode and select the example from Examples. For more information, visit Building and Running an Example.

Creating Charts Using QML

Creating each chart type begins with the creation of a ChartView.

To create a pie, we use the PieSeries API together with a few PieSlices:

ChartView {
    id: chart
    title: "Top-5 car brand shares in Finland"
    anchors.fill: parent
    legend.alignment: Qt.AlignBottom
    antialiasing: true

    PieSeries {
        id: pieSeries
        PieSlice { label: "Volkswagen"; value: 13.5 }
        PieSlice { label: "Toyota"; value: 10.9 }
        PieSlice { label: "Ford"; value: 8.6 }
        PieSlice { label: "Skoda"; value: 8.2 }
        PieSlice { label: "Volvo"; value: 6.8 }
    }
}

Component.onCompleted: {
    // You can also manipulate slices dynamically, like append a slice or set a slice exploded
    othersSlice = pieSeries.append("Others", 52.0);
    pieSeries.find("Volkswagen").exploded = true;
}

To create a chart with a line series:

ChartView {
    title: "Line"
    anchors.fill: parent
    antialiasing: true

    LineSeries {
        name: "LineSeries"
        XYPoint { x: 0; y: 0 }
        XYPoint { x: 1.1; y: 2.1 }
        XYPoint { x: 1.9; y: 3.3 }
        XYPoint { x: 2.1; y: 2.1 }
        XYPoint { x: 2.9; y: 4.9 }
        XYPoint { x: 3.4; y: 3.0 }
        XYPoint { x: 4.1; y: 3.3 }
    }
}

And spline series:

ChartView {
    title: "Spline"
    anchors.fill: parent
    antialiasing: true

    SplineSeries {
        name: "SplineSeries"
        XYPoint { x: 0; y: 0.0 }
        XYPoint { x: 1.1; y: 3.2 }
        XYPoint { x: 1.9; y: 2.4 }
        XYPoint { x: 2.1; y: 2.1 }
        XYPoint { x: 2.9; y: 2.6 }
        XYPoint { x: 3.4; y: 2.3 }
        XYPoint { x: 4.1; y: 3.1 }
    }
}

Then we create a chart that illustrates the NHL All-Star player selections by using three area series:

ChartView {
    title: "NHL All-Star Team Players"
    anchors.fill: parent
    antialiasing: true

    // Define x-axis to be used with the series instead of default one
    ValueAxis {
        id: valueAxis
        min: 2000
        max: 2011
        tickCount: 12
        labelFormat: "%.0f"
    }

    AreaSeries {
        name: "Russian"
        axisX: valueAxis
        upperSeries: LineSeries {
            XYPoint { x: 2000; y: 1 }
            XYPoint { x: 2001; y: 1 }
            XYPoint { x: 2002; y: 1 }
            XYPoint { x: 2003; y: 1 }
            XYPoint { x: 2004; y: 1 }
            XYPoint { x: 2005; y: 0 }
            XYPoint { x: 2006; y: 1 }
            XYPoint { x: 2007; y: 1 }
            XYPoint { x: 2008; y: 4 }
            XYPoint { x: 2009; y: 3 }
            XYPoint { x: 2010; y: 2 }
            XYPoint { x: 2011; y: 1 }
        }
    }
    ...

Then a couple of scatter series:

ChartView {
    title: "Scatters"
    anchors.fill: parent
    antialiasing: true

    ScatterSeries {
        id: scatter1
        name: "Scatter1"
        XYPoint { x: 1.5; y: 1.5 }
        XYPoint { x: 1.5; y: 1.6 }
        XYPoint { x: 1.57; y: 1.55 }
        XYPoint { x: 1.8; y: 1.8 }
        XYPoint { x: 1.9; y: 1.6 }
        XYPoint { x: 2.1; y: 1.3 }
        XYPoint { x: 2.5; y: 2.1 }
    }

    ScatterSeries {
        name: "Scatter2"
    ...

And a few different bar series:

ChartView {
    title: "Bar series"
    anchors.fill: parent
    legend.alignment: Qt.AlignBottom
    antialiasing: true

    BarSeries {
        id: mySeries
        axisX: BarCategoryAxis { categories: ["2007", "2008", "2009", "2010", "2011", "2012" ] }
        BarSet { label: "Bob"; values: [2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6] }
        BarSet { label: "Susan"; values: [5, 1, 2, 4, 1, 7] }
        BarSet { label: "James"; values: [3, 5, 8, 13, 5, 8] }
    }
}

ChartView {
    title: "Stacked Bar series"
    anchors.fill: parent
    legend.alignment: Qt.AlignBottom
    antialiasing: true

    StackedBarSeries {
        id: mySeries
        axisX: BarCategoryAxis { categories: ["2007", "2008", "2009", "2010", "2011", "2012" ] }
        BarSet { label: "Bob"; values: [2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6] }
        BarSet { label: "Susan"; values: [5, 1, 2, 4, 1, 7] }
        BarSet { label: "James"; values: [3, 5, 8, 13, 5, 8] }
    }
}

ChartView {
    title: "Percent Bar series"
    anchors.fill: parent
    legend.alignment: Qt.AlignBottom
    antialiasing: true

    PercentBarSeries {
        axisX: BarCategoryAxis { categories: ["2007", "2008", "2009", "2010", "2011", "2012" ] }
        BarSet { label: "Bob"; values: [2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6] }
        BarSet { label: "Susan"; values: [5, 1, 2, 4, 1, 7] }
        BarSet { label: "James"; values: [3, 5, 8, 13, 5, 8] }
    }
}

ChartView {
    title: "Horizontal Bar series"
    anchors.fill: parent
    legend.alignment: Qt.AlignBottom
    antialiasing: true

    HorizontalBarSeries {
        axisY: BarCategoryAxis { categories: ["2007", "2008", "2009", "2010", "2011", "2012" ] }
        BarSet { label: "Bob"; values: [2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6] }
        BarSet { label: "Susan"; values: [5, 1, 2, 4, 1, 7] }
        BarSet { label: "James"; values: [3, 5, 8, 13, 5, 8] }
    }
}

ChartView {
    title: "Horizontal Stacked Bar series"
    anchors.fill: parent
    legend.alignment: Qt.AlignBottom
    antialiasing: true

    HorizontalStackedBarSeries {
        axisY: BarCategoryAxis { categories: ["2007", "2008", "2009", "2010", "2011", "2012" ] }
        BarSet { label: "Bob"; values: [2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6] }
        BarSet { label: "Susan"; values: [5, 1, 2, 4, 1, 7] }
        BarSet { label: "James"; values: [3, 5, 8, 13, 5, 8] }
    }
}

ChartView {
    title: "Horizontal Percent Bar series"
    anchors.fill: parent
    legend.alignment: Qt.AlignBottom
    antialiasing: true

    HorizontalPercentBarSeries {
        axisY: BarCategoryAxis { categories: ["2007", "2008", "2009", "2010", "2011", "2012" ] }
        BarSet { label: "Bob"; values: [2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6] }
        BarSet { label: "Susan"; values: [5, 1, 2, 4, 1, 7] }
        BarSet { label: "James"; values: [3, 5, 8, 13, 5, 8] }
    }
}

And finally an example demonstrating how to create a donut chart with two pie series:

ChartView {
    id: chart
    title: "Production costs"
    anchors.fill: parent
    legend.visible: false
    antialiasing: true

    PieSeries {
        id: pieOuter
        size: 0.96
        holeSize: 0.7
        PieSlice { id: slice; label: "Alpha"; value: 19511; color: "#99CA53" }
        PieSlice { label: "Epsilon"; value: 11105; color: "#209FDF" }
        PieSlice { label: "Psi"; value: 9352; color: "#F6A625" }
    }

    PieSeries {
        size: 0.7
        id: pieInner
        holeSize: 0.25

        PieSlice { label: "Materials"; value: 10334; color: "#B9DB8A" }
        PieSlice { label: "Employee"; value: 3066; color: "#DCEDC4" }
        PieSlice { label: "Logistics"; value: 6111; color: "#F3F9EB" }

        PieSlice { label: "Materials"; value: 7371; color: "#63BCE9" }
        PieSlice { label: "Employee"; value: 2443; color: "#A6D9F2" }
        PieSlice { label: "Logistics"; value: 1291; color: "#E9F5FC" }

        PieSlice { label: "Materials"; value: 4022; color: "#F9C36C" }
        PieSlice { label: "Employee"; value: 3998; color: "#FCE1B6" }
        PieSlice { label: "Logistics"; value: 1332; color: "#FEF5E7" }
    }
}

Component.onCompleted: {
    // Set the common slice properties dynamically for convenience
    for (var i = 0; i < pieOuter.count; i++) {
        pieOuter.at(i).labelPosition = PieSlice.LabelOutside;
        pieOuter.at(i).labelVisible = true;
        pieOuter.at(i).borderWidth = 3;
    }
    for (var i = 0; i < pieInner.count; i++) {
        pieInner.at(i).labelPosition = PieSlice.LabelInsideNormal;
        pieInner.at(i).labelVisible = true;
        pieInner.at(i).borderWidth = 2;
    }
}

Additionally, antialiasing is set with the qml property in Qt Quick 2.
