Line Chart Live update


Question

Live update Line Chart

I want to modify this simple example of Line Chart and add live update.

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.chart.LineChart;
import javafx.scene.chart.NumberAxis;
import javafx.scene.chart.XYChart;
import javafx.stage.Stage;


public class LineChartSample extends Application {

    @Override public void start(Stage stage) {
        stage.setTitle("Line Chart Sample");
        //defining the axes
        final NumberAxis xAxis = new NumberAxis();
        final NumberAxis yAxis = new NumberAxis();
        xAxis.setLabel("Number of Month");
        //creating the chart
        final LineChart<Number,Number> lineChart = 
                new LineChart<Number,Number>(xAxis,yAxis);

        lineChart.setTitle("Stock Monitoring, 2010");
        //defining a series
        XYChart.Series series = new XYChart.Series();
        series.setName("My portfolio");
        //populating the series with data
        series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(1, 23));
        series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(2, 14));
        series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(3, 15));
        series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(4, 24));
        series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(5, 34));
        series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(6, 36));
        series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(7, 22));
        series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(8, 45));
        series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(9, 43));
        series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(10, 17));
        series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(11, 29));
        series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(12, 25));

        Scene scene  = new Scene(lineChart,800,600);
        lineChart.getData().add(series);

        stage.setScene(scene);
        stage.show();
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        launch(args);
    }
}

For example I want to get this result:

How I can modify the Line chart to get the same result? Is there already made example?

P.S I tested this example to animate the Line Chart

The code it's not working properly because only new value are added. Old values are not destroyed.

Based on JewelSea's example on AnimatedAreaChart, I modified it to make a similar example for you based on LineGraph. Please have a look at the example, hope it satisfies your need!

    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        launch(args);
    }
}

N.B. I haven't taken care of updating the values on the X-axis, you can do that !

Here is an example:

public class AnimatedLineChart extends Application {

private LineChart<Number, Number> chart;

private XYChart.Series<Number, Number> dataSeries;

private NumberAxis xAxis;

private Timeline animation;

private double sequence = 0;

private double y = 10;

private final int MAX_DATA_POINTS = 25, MAX = 10, MIN = 5;;

public AnimatedLineChart() {

    // create timeline to add new data every 60th of second
    animation = new Timeline();
    animation.getKeyFrames()
            .add(new KeyFrame(Duration.millis(1000), 
                    (ActionEvent actionEvent) -> plotTime()));
    animation.setCycleCount(Animation.INDEFINITE);
}

public Parent createContent() {

    xAxis = new NumberAxis(0, MAX_DATA_POINTS + 1, 2);
    final NumberAxis yAxis = new NumberAxis(MIN - 1, MAX + 1, 1);
    chart = new LineChart<>(xAxis, yAxis);

    // setup chart
    chart.setAnimated(false);
    chart.setLegendVisible(false);
    chart.setTitle("Animated Line Chart");
    xAxis.setLabel("X Axis");
    xAxis.setForceZeroInRange(false);

    yAxis.setLabel("Y Axis");
    yAxis.setTickLabelFormatter(new NumberAxis.DefaultFormatter(yAxis, "$", null));

    // add starting data
    dataSeries = new XYChart.Series<>();
    dataSeries.setName("Data");

    // create some starting data
    dataSeries.getData()
            .add(new XYChart.Data<Number, Number>(++sequence, y));

    chart.getData().add(dataSeries);

    return chart;
}

private void plotTime() {
    dataSeries.getData().add(new XYChart.Data<Number, Number>(++sequence, getNextValue()));

    // after 25hours delete old data
    if (sequence > MAX_DATA_POINTS) {
        dataSeries.getData().remove(0);
    }

    // every hour after 24 move range 1 hour
    if (sequence > MAX_DATA_POINTS - 1) {
        xAxis.setLowerBound(xAxis.getLowerBound() + 1);
        xAxis.setUpperBound(xAxis.getUpperBound() + 1);
    }
}

private int getNextValue(){     
    Random rand = new Random();
    return rand.nextInt((MAX - MIN) + 1) + MIN;     
}

public void play() {
    animation.play();
}

@Override
public void stop() {
    animation.pause();
}

@Override
public void start(Stage primaryStage) throws Exception {
    primaryStage.setScene(new Scene(createContent()));
    primaryStage.setTitle("Animated Line Chart");
    primaryStage.show();
    play();
}

/**
 * 
 * Java main for when running without JavaFX launcher
 * 
 */
public static void main(String[] args) {
    launch(args);
}

}

You can find more examples in here.

Hope this helps! :)
