IIndexBasedCustomPointColorizer Interface

An interface that should be implemented by a custom point colorizer that has access to indexes of the data source items corresponding to series points.

Namespace: DevExpress.Maui.Charts

Assembly: DevExpress.Maui.Charts.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Maui.Charts


public interface IIndexBasedCustomPointColorizer :


In this example, the bar chart visualizes GDP values for the G20 and colors data points according to which part of the world the country belongs.

Index-Based Colorizer

  1. Create a data source – a list of objects each of which stores a country’s name, GDP value, and the part of the world (region) where the country is located.
  2. Create a class (ColorizerByRegion, in this example) that implements the IIndexBasedCustomPointColorizer interface. Specify a color for each region and implement the IIndexBasedCustomPointColorizer.GetColor method that returns a color for each data point depending on the Region data member’s value.
    This class should also implement the IIndexBasedCustomPointColorizer.GetLegendItemProvider method and the ILegendItemProvider interface to specify legend items that show region colors.

  3. Assign a ColorizerByRegion object to the BarSeries.PointColorizer property.

        <dxc:ChartView Rotated="True">
                <dxc:BarSeries PointColorizer="{local:ColorizerByRegion}">
                    <!-- Bind the series to the data source. -->
                        <dxc:SeriesDataAdapter DataSource="{Binding CountryStatisticsData}"
                            <dxc:ValueDataMember Type="Value" Member="Gdp"/>
            <!-- Specify axis and legend settings here. -->
