/**
 * Chart themes give more control over chart output, including 
 * the creation of the JFreeChart object itself. Also, chart themes 
 * affect a whole range of chart types across multiple reports and are not necessarily tied to 
 * a specific chart element within a report. They can even apply globally to all charts within 
 * a given JasperReports deployment, applying a new look and feel to all charts created.
 * 
* A chart theme can be set globally using a configuration property within the * jasperreports.properties file as follows: *

* net.sf.jasperreports.chart.theme=<theme_name> *

* The global chart theme can be overridden at report level using the following report * property in the report template: *

* <property name="net.sf.jasperreports.chart.theme" value="<theme_name>"/> *

* If needed, at chart element level, the chart theme is specified using the theme attribute. * * @author Teodor Danciu ([email protected]) */ public interface ChartTheme { /** * @return an org.jfree.chart.JFreeChart object representing the chart */ public JFreeChart createChart(ChartContext chartContext) throws JRException; }
