Creating a line chart in React using material UI and DevExpress simply means creating a simple graph to show the relationship between two parameters.

DevExpress: DevExpress is a package for controlling and building the user interface of the Windows, Mobile, and other applications.

Line Charts: Line charts are used to represent the relation between two data relationships X and relationships Y on a different axis. One of the axes of the plot represents the specific categories being compared, while the other axis represents the measured values corresponding to those categories.



To create a line chart in React using material UI and DevExpress, we will install the devexpress and MUI packages first. Then create dummy data in the form of an array of objects with numeric values and represent them on the line chart using the Chart component and respective attributes.

Steps to Create React Application And Installing Module:

Step 1: Create a React application using the following command.

npx create-react-app foldername

Step 2: After creating your project folder i.e. folder name, move to it using the following command.

cd foldername

Step 3: After creating the ReactJS application, install the required modules using the following command.

npm i --save @devexpress/dx-react-core @devexpress/dx-react-chart 
@material-ui/core devexpress/dx-react-chart-material-ui

            <Chart data={data}>
                <ArgumentAxis />
