Important Note

If you're using this package with Expo Tools, please make sure your Expo SDK version is higher than or equal to v50.0.0.

In bare React Native application you need to also install the expo-modules package, and configure the content of ios and android build directiories like it's described here. Make sure to use React Native latest version.

  • Run the following command in your project
$ npm install react-native-webview
  • After that install react-native-fusioncharts in your app
$ npm install react-native-fusioncharts
  • For iOS, go to your ios directory and run the following
$ npx pod-install
  • For iOS, if you want to add export functionality for your charts, go to your info.plist file and add the following code
    <key>NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription</key>
	  <string>Photo Library Access for downloading the chart</string>

Getting Started

Requirements

  • Node.js, NPM/Yarn installed globally in your OS.

Installation

This wrapper can be installed within app based on Expo tools, or bare React Native app.

How to create your own application using FusionCharts – with Expo

  1. Make sure you have Node.js and Git installed in your environment. Check the official Expo’s documentation for more details.

  2. Run the following command in Command Prompt to create a new application:

npx create-expo-app My-test-app.
  1. Move to the previously created app folder: cd My-test-app

  2. Install needed libraries for the FusionCharts:

npm i react-native-fusioncharts
  1. Now create the "metro.config.js" in the root folder by running this command:
npx expo customize metro.config.js
  1. Add the following code in metro.config.js file:
const { getDefaultConfig } = require('expo/metro-config');

const config = getDefaultConfig(__dirname);

config.resolver.assetExts.push(
  // Adds support for `.fcscript` files for Fusionchart
  'fcscript'
);
module.exports = config;
  1. Replace the code in the "App.js" file to receive a desired chart. Example

  2. Run the following command: expo start Expo should create a QR-code in your Command Prompt window.

  3. Open the Expo Go application on your device – you should have installed it in order to run your FusionCharts app on this device.

  4. Make sure your device is on the same Wi-Fi network as the computer where you are executing Expo commands.

  5. Scan the QR-code with the Expo Go scanner. The application will run on this device. It should display the charts properly.

  6. You can make changes to your code while running the application on your device: it should automatically reload after you save the changes.

How to create your own application using FusionCharts – with React-Native CLI

  1. Make sure you have the latest versions of Node and JDK installed in your environment. Dependencies for Android and iOS emulators. should also be setup properly. Check the official React Native documentation for more details.

  2. Run the following command in Command Prompt to install the React Native CLI: npm install -g react-native-cli

  3. Run the following command in Command Prompt to create a new application: react-native init My-test-app.

  4. Run the command cd My-test-app to access your app.

  5. A new application named ‘My-test-app’ has been created. Update its code to include charts that you need to get displayed. Check our instructions for details.

  6. In order to run your application on a connected Android device or an emulator, execute the following command: npx react-native run-android. It would take a few minutes to run the application.

  7. To run it on an iOS device or simulator, execute the following command: npx react-native run-iOS.

You can also use React-Native CLI to run an application created with Expo. This is how you do it:

  1. Follow steps 1-4 of the Expo guide above.

  2. You have finished updating the code and accessed your application’s folder. Now run the following command: expo eject

  3. Expo will create /Android and /IOs folders in your application allowing you to run it with React-Native CLI

  4. Make sure you have configured your environment dependencies for Android and iOS emulators. Check the official React Native documentation for more details.

  5. Now you can use the command npx react-native run-android to run your application on Android or the command npx react-native run-iOS to run it on iOS.

After installing react-native-fusioncharts, follow the steps below:

It is required to add the .fcscript into the asset extensions section of metro.config.js file, or create that file within your project, and configure it like below:

const { getDefaultConfig } = require('expo/metro-config');
const { mergeConfig } = require('@react-native/metro-config');

module.exports = function (baseConfig) {
    const defaultConfig = mergeConfig(baseConfig, getDefaultConfig(__dirname));
    const { resolver: { assetExts, sourceExts } } = defaultConfig;

    return mergeConfig(
        defaultConfig,
        {
            resolver: {
                sourceExts,
                assetExts: [...assetExts, 'fcscript']
            },
        },
    );
};

Quick Start

Include the react-native-fusioncharts library as follows:

The App.js file:

import React from 'react';
import { Text, View } from 'react-native';
import ReactNativeFusionCharts from 'react-native-fusioncharts';

const Chart = () => {
  const chartData = [
    { label: "Venezuela", value: "250" },
    { label: "Saudi", value: "260" },
    { label: "Canada", value: "180" },
    { label: "Iran", value: "140" },
    { label: "Russia", value: "115" },
    { label: "UAE", value: "100" },
    { label: "US", value: "30" },
    { label: "China", value: "30" },
  ];
  const chartConfig = {
    type: "column2D",
    width: "300",
    height: "400",
    dataFormat: "json",
    dataSource: {
      chart: {
        caption: "Countries With Most Oil Reserves [2017-18]",
        subCaption: "In MMbbl = One Million barrels",
        xAxisName: "Country",
        yAxisName: "Reserves (MMbbl)",
        numberSuffix: "K",
        theme: "fusion",
        exportEnabled: 1 // to enable the export chart functionality
      },
      data: chartData
    }
  };
  return (
    <View
      style={{
        flex: 1,
        justifyContent: 'center',
        alignItems: 'center',
        marginTop: 50
      }}>
      <Text>Fusioncharts</Text>
      <ReactNativeFusionCharts
        chartConfig={chartConfig}
      />
    </View>
  );
};
export default Chart;

Working with Events

In this sample we are attaching dataplotclick event in the chart.

import { StatusBar } from 'expo-status-bar';
import { StyleSheet, Text, View, Alert } from 'react-native';
import ReactNativeFusionCharts from 'react-native-fusioncharts';

export default function App() {
  const chartData = [
    { label: "Venezuela", value: "250" },
    { label: "Saudi", value: "260" },
    { label: "Canada", value: "180" },
    { label: "Iran", value: "140" },
    { label: "Russia", value: "115" },
    { label: "UAE", value: "100" },
    { label: "US", value: "30" },
    { label: "China", value: "30" },
  ];
  const chartConfig = {
    type: "column2D",
    width: "300",
    height: "400",
    dataFormat: "json",
    dataSource: {
      chart: {
        caption: "Countries With Most Oil Reserves [2017-18]",
        subCaption: "In MMbbl = One Million barrels",
        xAxisName: "Country",
        yAxisName: "Reserves (MMbbl)",
        numberSuffix: "K",
        theme: "fusion",
        exportEnabled: 1 // to enable the export chart functionality
      },
      data: chartData
    }
  };
  const events = {
    // Add your events method here:
    // Event name should be in small letters.
    dataplotclick: (e, a) => {
      Alert.alert(`You clicked on ${e.data.categoryLabel}`);
    }
  }
  return (
    <View style={styles.container}>
      <Text>Fusioncharts</Text>
      <ReactNativeFusionCharts
        chartConfig={chartConfig}
        events={events}
      />
      <StatusBar style="auto" />
    </View>
  );
}

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    backgroundColor: '#fff',
    alignItems: 'center',
    justifyContent: 'center',
    marginTop: 50
  },
});

Working with APIs

In this sample we can change the chart type dynamically using chart APIs.

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { Platform, StyleSheet, Text, View, Button, Alert } from 'react-native';
import ReactNativeFusionCharts from 'react-native-fusioncharts';

export default class ChartRunTime extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
    // Create a property(e.g: apiCaller) which will get attached to a function
    // where you can pass Chart API methods you want to run.
    this.apiCaller = null;
    const chartConfig = {
      type: 'column2d',
      width: '100%',
      height: '100%',
      dataFormat: 'json',
      dataSource: {
        chart: {
          caption: 'Recommended Portfolio Split',
          subCaption: 'For a net-worth of $1M',
          showValues: '1',
          showPercentInTooltip: '0',
          numberPrefix: '$',
          enableMultiSlicing: '1',
          theme: 'fusion',
          exportEnabled: 1
        },
        data: [
          {
            label: 'Equity',
            value: '300000'
          },
          {
            label: 'Debt',
            value: '230000'
          },
          {
            label: 'Bullion',
            value: '180000'
          },
          {
            label: 'Real-estate',
            value: '270000'
          },
          {
            label: 'Insurance',
            value: '20000'
          }
        ]
      }
    };

    this.state = {
      chartConfig,
      chartType: ''
    }
  }

  changeType(type) {
    this.setState({ chartType: type }, () => {
      // Chart instance is available here.
      // Passing js code to run chart api method.
      this.apiCaller(`chartType('${type}')`); // This method accepts js code in string.
    });
  }

  // Bind the argument from onInitialized with the property you created in your constructor
  bindApiCaller(caller) {
    // Now this.apiCaller will be a function where you can pass js code for the WebView
    // to access the chart Object. See the method changeType.
    this.apiCaller = caller;
    if (this.state.chartType === '')
      this.setState({ chartType: this.state.type });
  }

  render() {
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
        <Text style={styles.header}>Change chart type at runtime</Text>
        <View style={styles.chartContainer}>
          <ReactNativeFusionCharts
            chartConfig={this.state.chartConfig}
            onInitialized={caller => {
              this.bindApiCaller(caller);
            }}
          />
        </View>
        <Text style={styles.info}>Press button to change chart type</Text>
        <View style={styles.buttonContainer}>
          <Button
            disabled={
              this.state.chartType === '' || this.state.chartType == 'column2d'
            }
            style={{ margin: 8 }}
            title="Column2D"
            onPress={() => this.changeType('column2d')}
          />
          <Button
            disabled={
              this.state.chartType === '' || this.state.chartType == 'pie2d'
            }
            title="Pie2D"
            onPress={() => this.changeType('pie2d')}
          />
          <Button
            disabled={
              this.state.chartType === '' || this.state.chartType == 'bar2d'
            }
            title="Bar2D"
            onPress={() => this.changeType('bar2d')}
          />
        </View>
      </View>
    );
  }
}

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    padding: 10
  },
  header: {
    fontWeight: 'bold',
    fontSize: 20,
    textAlign: 'center',
    paddingBottom: 10
  },
  chartContainer: {
    height: 400,
    borderColor: '#000',
    borderWidth: 1
  },
  buttonContainer: {
    padding: 10,
    display: 'flex',
    justifyContent: 'space-around',
    flexDirection: 'row',
    alignItems: 'center'
  },
  info: {
    fontSize: 16,
    textAlign: 'center',
    marginTop: 5
  }
});

Working with modules

In this sample we can add the modules dynamically e.g gantt, timeseries, powercharts etc

import React, { Component } from "react";
import { StyleSheet, View } from "react-native";
import ReactNativeFusionCharts from "react-native-fusioncharts";
 
export default class App extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
 
    const chartConfig = {
      type: "gantt", // your chart type goes here
      width: "100%",
      height: "400",
      dataFormat: "json",
      dataSource: { // your data goes here
        // for gantt chart data please visit https://www.fusioncharts.com/dev/chart-attributes/gantt
      }
    };  
    this.state = {
      chartConfig
    };
  }
 
  render() {
    const modules = ['gantt']; // module names goes here
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
        <View style={styles.chartContainer}>
          <ReactNativeFusionCharts
            chartConfig={this.state.chartConfig}
            modules={modules}
          />
        </View>
      </View>
    );
  }
}
 
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    padding: 10
  },
 
  chartContainer: {
    height: '60%',
    borderColor: "#000",
    borderWidth: 1
  }
});

In this sample we can add the theme modules dynamically e.g candy, carbon, gammel etc

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { Platform, StyleSheet, Text, View, Alert } from 'react-native';
import ReactNativeFusionCharts from 'react-native-fusioncharts';

export default class ListenEvents extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);

    const chartConfig = {
      type: 'column2d',
      width: '100%',
      height: '100%',
      dataFormat: 'json',
      dataSource: {
        chart: {
          caption: 'Countries With Most Oil Reserves [2017-18]',
          subCaption: 'In MMbbl = One Million barrels',
          xAxisName: 'Country',
          yAxisName: 'Reserves (MMbbl)',
          numberSuffix: 'K',
          theme: 'carbon', // your theme name goes here
          exportEnabled: 1
        },
        data: [
          { label: 'Venezuela', value: '290' },
          { label: 'Saudi', value: '260' },
          { label: 'Canada', value: '180' },
          { label: 'Iran', value: '140' },
          { label: 'Russia', value: '115' },
          { label: 'UAE', value: '100' },
          { label: 'US', value: '30' },
          { label: 'China', value: '30' }
        ]
      }
    };

    this.state = {
      chartConfig
    };
  }

  render() {
    const modules = ['carbon']; // theme module name
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
        <Text style={styles.header}>Listen to events from chart</Text>
        <View style={styles.chartContainer}>
          <ReactNativeFusionCharts
            chartConfig={this.state.chartConfig}
            modules={modules}
          />
        </View>
      </View>
    );
  }
}

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    padding: 10
  },
  header: {
    fontWeight: 'bold',
    fontSize: 20,
    textAlign: 'center',
    paddingBottom: 10
  },
  chartContainer: {
    height: 400,
    borderColor: '#000',
    borderWidth: 1
  }
});

License Configuration

If you are using a licensed verison of fusioncharts and have a valid license key, add the license object by either creating a new file with your license configuration inside it and import it in app.js or add ‘global.licenseConfig’ object to the app.js file as shown below

import React, { Component } from "react";
import { StyleSheet, View } from "react-native";
import ReactNativeFusionCharts from "react-native-fusioncharts";
 
global.licenseConfig = {
  key: "your key goes here",
  creditLabel: false // true/false to show/hide watermark respectively
};
export default class App extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
 
    const chartConfig = {
      type: "column2D",
      width: "100%",
      height: "400",
      dataFormat: "json",
      dataSource: {
        chart: {
          caption: "Countries With Most Oil Reserves [2017-18]",
          subCaption: "In MMbbl = One Million barrels",
          xAxisName: "Country",
          yAxisName: "Reserves (MMbbl)",
          numberSuffix: "K",
          theme: "fusion",
          exportEnabled: 1
        },
        data: [
          { label: "Venezuela", value: "250" },
          { label: "Saudi", value: "260" },
          { label: "Canada", value: "180" },
          { label: "Iran", value: "140" },
          { label: "Russia", value: "115" },
          { label: "UAE", value: "100" },
          { label: "US", value: "30" },
          { label: "China", value: "30" }
        ],
      },
    };
    this.state = {
      chartConfig
    };
}
 
  render() {
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
        <View style={styles.chartContainer}>
          <ReactNativeFusionCharts
            chartConfig={this.state.chartConfig}
          />
        </View>
      </View>
    );
  }
}
 
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    padding: 10
  },
 
  chartContainer: {
    height: '60%',
    borderColor: "#000",
    borderWidth: 1
  }
});

Usage and integration of FusionTime

From fusioncharts@3.13.3-sr.1 and react-native-fusioncharts@3.0.0, You can visualize timeseries data easily on react.

Learn more about FusionTime here.

Consider the example below for integration of FusionTime

// In App.js
import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { AppRegistry, StyleSheet, Text, View, Platform } from 'react-native';
import ReactNativeFusionCharts from 'react-native-fusioncharts';

export default class App extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);

    const chartConfig = {
      type: 'timeseries',
      width: '100%',
      height: '100%',
      dataFormat: 'json',
      dataSource: {
        data: null,
        caption: {
          text: 'Sales Analysis'
        },
        subcaption: {
          text: 'Grocery'
        },
        yAxis: [
          {
