Column Charts are very often used in Sales dashboards, as well as Fitness applications. This example will show how to generate a simple Column chart in code.

The FastColumnRenderableSeries can be used to render an XyDataSeries (which contains one X-point and one Y-point); XyyDataSeries (renders Y values), XyzDataSeries; HlDataSeries and OhlcDataSeries(renders Close values).

Columns are drawn using the pens provided by the setStrokeStyle(PenStyle) (outline) and using the Brush provided by the setFillBrushStyle(BrushStyle) (fill).


Do you need to change the width of a column? Try calling the setDataPointWidth() method passing in any number from 0.0 to 1.0. This alters how much space a column takes up.

The full source code for the Android Column Chart example is included below (Scroll down!).
