Line Charts

Line Charts

Line charts contain multiple sets of data. A Line chart displays the data linearly. Each data series (created with the addColumns() method) is defined with a new instance of the MultiValueColumn object, which takes an ID and a set of values. Follow these steps to configure your portlet to use line charts.

  1. Import the chart taglib along with the LineChartConfig and MultiValueColumn classes into your bundle’s init.jsp file:

    <%@ taglib prefix="chart" uri="" %>
    <%@ page import="com.liferay.frontend.taglib.chart.model.point.line.LineChartConfig" %>
    <%@ page import="com.liferay.frontend.taglib.chart.model.MultiValueColumn" %>
  2. Add the following Java scriptlet to the top of your view.jsp:

    LineChartConfig _lineChartConfig = new LineChartConfig();
      new MultiValueColumn("data1", 100, 20, 30),
      new MultiValueColumn("data2", 20, 70, 100));
  3. Add the <chart> taglib to the view.jsp, passing the _lineChartConfig as the config attribute’s value:

      config="<%= _lineChartConfig %>"

A Line chart displays the data linearly.

Awesome! Now you know how to create line charts for your apps.
