Data setup Properties

  • items - Array set Items to render chart. This is important. See more in demo and demo-ng (app.component).

Usage in Angular

  • Import NativeScriptMPLineChartModule in NgModule:
import { NativeScriptMPLineChartModule } from "nativescript-mpchart/angular";
imports: [
  • iOs: width and height will auto full in parent layout.
  • Android: height is auto so you need set

to full in parent layout.

When use plugin if you see error when build --aot in line import interface in file .component like this :

Module not found. Can't resolve "nativescript-mpchart" in "relative path*.component".

You can't try change to : import { ... } from "nativescript-mpchart/index" and delete all platform, hook, node_modules and rebuild. I think an error in platform and angular not in plugin because i see it when develop.


This repository includes both Angular and plain NativeScript demos. In order to run those execute the following in your shell:

$ git clone
$ cd nativescript-mpchart/src
$ npm install
$ npm run demo

This will run the plain NativeScript demo project on iOS. If you want to run it on Android simply use the .android instead of the .ios sufix.

If you want to run the Angular demo simply use the
