Getting started with the .NET MAUI Polar Charts control

We’ve explored the features of the .NET MAUI Polar Charts control. Let’s see the steps to integrate it into your .NET MAUI app.

Step 1: Create a .NET MAUI app

First, create a .NET MAUI application.

Step 2: Add the required NuGet package

Syncfusion .NET MAUI controls are available on the NuGet Gallery. To add the .NET MAUI Polar Charts control to your project, open the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio. Search for Syncfusion.Maui.Charts and then install it.

Step 3: Register the handler

Now, register the handler for the Syncfusion core in the MauiProgram.cs file.

using Microsoft.Maui;
using Microsoft.Maui.Hosting;
using Microsoft.Maui.Controls.Compatibility;
using Microsoft.Maui.Controls.Hosting;
using Microsoft.Maui.Controls.Xaml;
using Syncfusion.Maui.Core.Hosting;

namespace SunburstGettingStarted
{
    public static class MauiProgram
    {
        public static MauiApp CreateMauiApp()
        {
            var builder = MauiApp.CreateBuilder();
            builder
              .UseMauiApp<App>()
              .ConfigureSyncfusionCore()
              .ConfigureFonts(fonts =>
              {
                 fonts.AddFont("OpenSans-Regular.ttf", "OpenSansRegular");
              });

              return builder.Build();
        }
    }
}

Step 4: Add the namespace

Add the Syncfusion.Maui.Charts namespace in your XAML page.

<ContentPage   
  . . .
  xmlns:chart=" clr-namespace:Syncfusion.Maui.Charts;assembly=Syncfusion.Maui.Charts">
  . . .
</ContentPage>

Step 5: Initialize the Syncfusion .NET MAUI Polar Charts control

Finally, initialize the .NET MAUI Polar Charts control with the data, as shown in the following code example.

<ContentPage
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/dotnet/2021/maui"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2009/xaml"
    x:Class="ChartGettingStarted.MainPage"
    xmlns:chart="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.Maui.Charts;assembly=Syncfusion.Maui.Charts"
    xmlns:model="clr-namespace:ChartGettingStarted">

 <!--Create business objects and specify binding context-->

 <ContentPage.BindingContext>
  <model:ViewModel></model:ViewModel>
 </ContentPage.BindingContext>

 <ContentPage.Content>
  <Grid>
   <chart:SfPolarChart>
    <chart:SfPolarChart.Title>
     <Label Text="Plant Analysis"/>
    </chart:SfPolarChart.Title>

    <chart:SfPolarChart.Legend>
     <chart:ChartLegend/>
    </chart:SfPolarChart.Legend>
    
    <chart:SfPolarChart.PrimaryAxis>
     <chart:CategoryAxis/>                    
    </chart:SfPolarChart.PrimaryAxis>

    <chart:SfPolarChart.SecondaryAxis>
     <chart:NumericalAxis/>                   
    </chart:SfPolarChart.SecondaryAxis>

    <chart:PolarAreaSeries Label="Tree" 
                           EnableTooltip="True"
                           ShowDataLabels="True"
                           ItemsSource="{Binding PlantDetails}"
                           XBindingPath="Direction" YBindingPath="Tree">
     <chart:PolarAreaSeries.DataLabelSettings>
      <chart:PolarDataLabelSettings LabelPlacement="Auto"/>
     </chart:PolarAreaSeries.DataLabelSettings>
    </chart:PolarAreaSeries>
   </chart:SfPolarChart>
  </Grid>
 </ContentPage.Content>
</ContentPage>

After executing the above code examples, we will get the output that resembles the following image.
