Adding graphs to HoloLens

Hi, I was hoping to have a graph displaying output from a database in my HoloLens app. The graph could be a line chart or a bar chart . I can't find any suggestions as to how to do this , any help would be appreciated . Thanks

    Simply it's boxes and lines that are scaled and positioned based on values. You can look for unity plug ins to purchase or create a mini chart prefab. You can use ui elements to create the basic structure of the chart and store the values in arrays or whatever collection works for you. It takes some effort but it's not that bad.

    I actually ended up writing the app in JavaScript and using the Chart.js plugin as I am familiar with it . I works pretty well and changing the background color to black allows it to be displayed in the real world.

    @Hannah Hi Hannah, Are you able to share this with others? I am not sure what to use for drawing graphs in Unity for HoloLens, so I was wondering if there would be a standard and simple example of drawing a graph in real-time based on some incoming values (or reading off of a csv file) for a Holographic Unity project. Of course, I came across your post... Initially, I liked the GazeRuler example of the HoloToolkit as a starting step for creating points and drawing lines, but I thought perhaps something better and sleek might have been done or may be someone would know of a better example or sample?
