One new addition to the FXCharts repo that I’ve created on github. This time it’s a XYBarChart, that is a bar chart that doesn’t have the limitation of the SDK BarChart which only allows you to have a CategoryAxis/ValueAxis pair of axes.So in other words, for example,  you can’t set a pair of axes if their of type DateAxis/ValueAxis. And as another consequence of these you can’t easily add zoom capabilities to a BarChart.

These type of chart wasn’t so easy to create was one might initially expect. Copy pasting the code from BarChart and altering the significant bits is not enough since BarChart relies on several package private methods from XYChart.

You can grab it from: https://github.com/dukke/FXCharts. If you have patches, features, fixes for this library please participate. Let’s create a better charts API.
