    Create and Delete Chart
    In This Topic

    DsExcel Java enables users to add charts in spreadsheets for improved data analysis and enhanced data visualization.

    Users can create and delete chart using the methods of the IShapes interface and the IChart interface

    Create Chart

    You can create chart in a worksheet by using the addChart method of the IShapes interface. Using this method, you can add a chart at a particular position by providing postion coordinates of the target range. The method has another overload that lets you add a chart directly to the target range. You can use add method of the ISeriesCollection class which lets you reflect data over the chart. 

    To create a chart, refer to the following example code.

    Copy Code
    // Add Chart
    IShape shape = worksheet.getShapes().addChart(ChartType.ColumnClustered, 300, 10, 300, 300);
            new Object[][] { { null, "S1", "S2", "S3" }, { "Item1", 10, 25, 25 }, { "Item2", -51, -36, 27 },
                    { "Item3", 52, -85, -30 }, { "Item4", 22, 65, 65 }, { "Item5", 23, 69, 69 } });
    //Add Chart at a specified position
    IShape shape = worksheet.getShapes.addChart(ChartType.ColumnClustered, 300, 100, 300, 300);
    // Create Chart
    shape.getChart().getSeriesCollection().add(worksheet.getRange("A1:D6"), RowCol.Columns, true, true);
    //Add Chart at a particular range
    // IShape shapeRange = worksheet.getShapes.addChart(ChartType.ColumnClustered, worksheet.getRange["A8:E20"]);
    //shapeRange.getChart().getSeriesCollection().add(worksheet.Range["A1:D6"], RowCol.Columns, true, true);
    Note: The target range and the linked picture to be added must exist in the same worksheet. Otherwise, it results into an InvalidOperationException.

    Delete Chart

    You can delete an existing chart by using the delete method of the IChart interface.

    To delete a chart from your worksheet, refer to the following example code.

    Copy Code
    // Delete Chart
