Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Charts are feature-rich, intuitive, and easy to use data-visualization controls. While the Chart for .NET MAUI capitalizes all the innate benefits of the native UI, it exposes its objects and properties in C#, allowing for no-compromise customization and flexibility. Using Telerik Chart along with the .NET MAUI allows developers to easily implement various chart scenarios in their applications from a single shared C# code base.
The intuitive object model and public API allow complex charts to be easily set up either in XAML or in code-behind. The Chart is completely data-aware as the binding mechanism of the control is used to create the appropriate data points from the raw data. Chart types and series are organized in hierarchies, depending on the coordinate system, used to plot data points.
The Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Chart provides the Cartesian and the Pie Charts as well as a number of series, which enable you to visualize different types of data in various ways and depending on your preferences and requirements.
The Cartesian Chart uses the Cartesian coordinate system to plot the data points in its chart series. The X and Y axes define how the coordinates of each point in the plot area are calculated.
The Cartesian Chart supports a number of series types, among which:
- Categorical Series such as the Area and Bar Charts.
- Scatter Series such as the Scatter Line and ScatterPoint Charts.
- Financial Series such as the OHLC and Candlestick Charts.
The Cartesian Chart also provides the Chart Grid type, which is optionally decorated with grid-like visuals, which support horizontal and vertical lines, and are associated with axis ticks and horizontal and vertical stripes (the area between two adjacent ticks).
The Pie Chart visualizes its data points by using a discrete polar coordinate system. Each point is represented as an arc segment. The arc length represents the point’s value percentage of the total sum. Telerik UI for .NET MAUI provides the Donut Series and the Pie Series.
Each Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Chart delivers a range of handy and developer-friendly features whose number and further development are not limited by the list in this section. The team constantly invests efforts to improve the performance and add more value to the existing Charts library as well as develop new features and controls to it.
Each Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Chart can be enabled with interactivity through its
Behaviors property. A behavior is generally an abstraction that handles user input in a
RadChart instance and, optionally, provides visual feedback upon some action.
The Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Charts support the following behaviors:
Pan-and-Zoom behavior—This behavior handles
MouseWheelto enable the panning and zooming of the associated chart plot area.
Tooltip behavior—This behavior handles
MouseMoveevents to enable context-sensitive information about a data point. It differs from the
TrackballBehaviorin terms of visual information and trigger action.
Selection behavior—This behavior handles the
Tapevent to enable the selection and deselection of data points and/or chart series. When a data point becomes
"Selected", you can use the
SelectionPaletteproperty of the Chart to visualize the selected point.
TrackBall behavior—This behavior handles
Holdevents to enable context-sensitive information about a data point.
You can also show annotations in the Chart. Annotations are visual elements that can be used to highlight certain areas on the plot area and to denote statistical significance.
The provided types of annotations include:
CartesianGridLine—In the Cartesian Chart, the grid line represents a vertical or horizontal line which crosses the entire plot area.
CartesianPlotBand—The Cartesian Plot Band annotation is either a horizontal or a vertical stripe that crosses entirely the vertical or horizontal axis respectively.
The Chart can display different labels for the series and axes that are displayed. Additionally, you can customize the labels according to your preferences.
