Aspose.Slides - Create PPT Charts

//Instantiate Presentation class that represents PPTX file
Presentation pres = new Presentation();

//Access first slide
ISlide sld = pres.getSlides().get_Item(0);

// Add chart with default data
IChart chart = sld.getShapes().addChart(ChartType.ClusteredColumn, 0, 0, 500, 500);

//Setting chart Title
//chart.ChartTitle.TextFrameForOverriding.Text = "Sample Title";
chart.getChartTitle().addTextFrameForOverriding("Sample Title");
chart.getChartTitle().getTextFrameForOverriding().getTextFrameFormat().setCenterText(NullableBool.True);
chart.getChartTitle().setHeight (20);
chart.hasTitle(true);

//Set first series to Show Values
chart.getChartData().getSeries().get_Item(0).getLabels().getDefaultDataLabelFormat().setShowValue( true);

//Setting the index of chart data sheet
int defaultWorksheetIndex = 0;

//Getting the chart data worksheet
IChartDataWorkbook fact = chart.getChartData().getChartDataWorkbook();

//Delete default generated series and categories
chart.getChartData().getSeries().clear();
chart.getChartData().getCategories().clear();
int s = chart.getChartData().getSeries().size();
s = chart.getChartData().getCategories().size();

//Adding new series
chart.getChartData().getSeries().add(fact.getCell(defaultWorksheetIndex, 0, 1, "Series 1"), chart.getType());
chart.getChartData().getSeries().add(fact.getCell(defaultWorksheetIndex, 0, 2, "Series 2"), chart.getType());

//Adding new categories
chart.getChartData().getCategories().add(fact.getCell(defaultWorksheetIndex, 1, 0, "Caetegoty 1"));
chart.getChartData().getCategories().add(fact.getCell(defaultWorksheetIndex, 2, 0, "Caetegoty 2"));
chart.getChartData().getCategories().add(fact.getCell(defaultWorksheetIndex, 3, 0, "Caetegoty 3"));

//Take first chart series
IChartSeries series = chart.getChartData().getSeries().get_Item(0);

//Now populating series data

series.getDataPoints().addDataPointForBarSeries(fact.getCell(defaultWorksheetIndex, 1, 1, 20));
series.getDataPoints().addDataPointForBarSeries(fact.getCell(defaultWorksheetIndex, 2, 1, 50));
series.getDataPoints().addDataPointForBarSeries(fact.getCell(defaultWorksheetIndex, 3, 1, 30));

//Setting fill color for series
series.getFormat().getFill().setFillType(FillType.Solid);
series.getFormat().getFill().getSolidFillColor().setColor (Color.RED);


//Take second chart series
series = chart.getChartData().getSeries().get_Item(1);

//Now populating series data
series.getDataPoints().addDataPointForBarSeries(fact.getCell(defaultWorksheetIndex, 1, 2, 30));
series.getDataPoints().addDataPointForBarSeries(fact.getCell(defaultWorksheetIndex, 2, 2, 10));
series.getDataPoints().addDataPointForBarSeries(fact.getCell(defaultWorksheetIndex, 3, 2, 60));

//Setting fill color for series
series.getFormat().getFill().setFillType (FillType.Solid);
series.getFormat().getFill().getSolidFillColor().setColor(Color.GREEN);

//create custom labels for each of categories for new series
//first label will be show Category name
IDataLabel lbl = series.getDataPoints().get_Item(0).getLabel();
lbl.getDataLabelFormat().setShowCategoryName(true);

lbl = series.getDataPoints().get_Item(1).getLabel();
lbl.getDataLabelFormat().setShowSeriesName(true);

//Show value for third label
lbl = series.getDataPoints().get_Item(2).getLabel();
lbl.getDataLabelFormat().setShowValue(true);
lbl.getDataLabelFormat().setShowSeriesName(true);
lbl.getDataLabelFormat().setSeparator ("/");

//Save presentation with chart
pres.save("data/AsposeChart.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx);
