Hi Evgeny,

To display other Views under the chart you’ll need to switch to another IRenderSurface implementation because default one uses GlSurfaceView as a base and it doesn’t allow to draw anything below it. We provide two alternative implementations which are abit slower than default one but don’t have problems with transparency – one which is based on TextureView (GLTextureView) and another which uses Canvas API for drawing(RenderSurface). To switch you just need to set new render surface instance for your chart:

            // set Canvas based renderer
            surface.setRenderSurface(new RenderSurface(getActivity()));


            // set OpenGL Texture based renderer 
            surface.setRenderSurface(new GLTextureView(getActivity()));

Regarding styling of chart – unfortunately we don’t have a separate article about chart themes but I would suggest to take a look on IThemeProvider interface and comments for its members which should explain the purpose of each theme parameter.

Hope this will help you!

Best regards,
