Qml Custom Legend

This application shows you how to create your own custom legend instead of using the built-in legend of ChartView API.

The main view of the application shows a stacked area chart. This is how one of the stacked areas is created. See ChartViewStacked.qml and AnimatedAreaSeries.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.

Customizing Legends

AnimatedAreaSeries {
    id: municipalSeries
    name: "municipal"
    axisX: axisX
    axisY: axisY
    borderWidth: 0
    upperSeries: LineSeries {
        id: municipalUpper
        XYPoint { x: 2006; y: 33119 + 13443 }
        XYPoint { x: 2007; y: 37941 + 15311 }
        XYPoint { x: 2008; y: 40122 + 16552 }
        XYPoint { x: 2009; y: 38991 + 17904 }
        XYPoint { x: 2010; y: 34055 + 17599 }
        XYPoint { x: 2011; y: 34555 + 19002 }
        XYPoint { x: 2012; y: 38991 + 19177 }
    }
    lowerSeries: stateUpper
}

Hovering with mouse on top of the legend will highlight the hovered series. (see CustomLegend.qml).

Row {
    id: legendRow
    anchors.centerIn: parent
    spacing: 10

    Repeater {
        id: legendRepeater
        model: seriesCount
        delegate: legendDelegate
    }
}
Component {
    id: legendDelegate
    Rectangle {
        id: rect
    ...
        MouseArea {
            id: mouseArea
            anchors.fill: parent
            hoverEnabled: true
            onEntered: {
                rect.gradient = buttonGradientHovered;
                legend.entered(label.text);
            }
            onExited: {
                rect.gradient = buttonGradient;
                legend.exited(label.text);
                marker.opacity = 0.3;
                marker.height = 10;
            }
            onClicked: {
                legend.selected(label.text);
                marker.opacity = 1.0;
                marker.height = 12;
            }
        }

You can also select one of the stacked areas for a closer look as a line series by a mouse click (see ChartViewHighlighted.qml).

ChartView {
    id: chartViewHighlighted
    title: ""
    property variant selectedSeries
    signal clicked
    legend.visible: false
    margins.top: 10
    margins.bottom: 0
    antialiasing: true

    LineSeries {
        id: lineSeries

        axisX: ValueAxis {
            min: 2006
            max: 2012
            labelFormat: "%.0f"
            tickCount: 7
        }
        axisY: ValueAxis {
            id: axisY
            titleText: "EUR"
            min: 0
            max: 40000
            labelFormat: "%.0f"
            tickCount: 5
        }
    }
