ScreenShot

Features:

  • Define the layout with only a flag, in interface builder or code.
  • Predefined shapes and possibility to use custom paths.
  • Per-cell configuration or overrides, e.g. to set a different font or shape than other cells.
  • Custom views via UICollectionView subclasses.
  • Full autolayout support
  • Interactive
  • Scrollable
  • Compatible with any chart type or library.

Installation

CocoaPods

Add to your Podfile:

use_frameworks!
pod 'ChartLegends'

Carthage

Add to your Cartfile:

github "i-schuetz/ChartLegends"

Quickstart

Simply:

@IBOutlet weak var legendsView: ChartLegendsView!

legendsView.setLegends(
	(text: "Chemicals", color: UIColor.orange),
    (text: "Forestry", color: UIColor.green)
)

Usage

Predefined legend types

ChartLegends currently supports these types out of the box:

Plain text

Displays text in the given color. The example in the quick start section produces this kind of legends.

Shape with text

Displays text with a shape on the left side, with given color. Here, also, there are some predefined options, for example circle, with a specified radius, or rect, with specified width and height.

For example, to use legends with a small colored circle on the left:

legendsView.setLegends(.circle(radius: 7), [
	(text: "Chemicals", color: UIColor.orange),
    (text: "Forestry", color: UIColor.green)
])

If you want to show a shape that's not in the predefined types, you also can provide a path. Example:

let pathGenerator = {(size: CGSize) in
    return UIBezierPath()
}
legendsView.setLegends(pathGenerator, [
	(text: "Chemicals", color: UIColor.orange),
    (text: "Forestry", color: UIColor.green)
])

Of course the idea is to expand the predefined types to support all possible regularly used paths. Don't hesitate to make a pull request with your path if you think it's of common interest!

Custom cells

If you need more customization, you can also use custom cells. Example:

legendsView.configure(cellType: MyCustomCell.self) {cell, legend, indexPath in
	cell.label.text = legend.text
	// other custom configuration
}

This is type safe and concise - we don't need casting or delegates to configure the cell.

To implement a custom cell, you only have to extend UICollectionViewCell and conform to ChartLegendCell to add some additional functionality that ChartLegendsView needs to interact with the cell.

Here, again, feel free to submit a pull request with your cells, if you think they can be of common use.

Layout types

You can configure the layout of ChartLegendsView, together with some other settings, directly in interface builder:

ScreenShot

Options:

  • flowLeft: Left aligned flow layout. This should be the most commonly used horizontal legends layout.

  • columns: Column layout - you can specify the number of columns in the "Columns field".

  • flow: The default flow collection view layout, which will "justify" cells in order to occupy available space.

Note that when layout type is not set to columns, the Columns field is ignored.

Demo

Lookout

Besides of adding new shapes and cells, there are surely several settings and refinements that can be done. Also, add animations!
