Qt Charts

Qt Charts module provides a set of easy to use chart components. It uses the Qt Graphics View Framework, therefore charts can be easily integrated to modern user interfaces. Qt Charts can be used as QWidgets, QGraphicsWidget, or QML types. Users can easily create impressive graphs by selecting one of the charts themes.

Getting Started

To import Qt Charts QML types, add the following import statement to your .qml file:

import QtCharts 2.0

If you intend to use Qt Charts C++ classes in your application, use the following include and using directives:

#include <QtCharts>

using namespace QtCharts;

Note: If you are only using a few classes from this module, we recommend including only those specific classes instead of the whole module.

To link against the Qt Charts module, add this line to your qmake project file:

#QT += charts

See the Getting started page for further information on how to use Qt Charts in your application.
