Overview

The Bar Chart (or Column Chart) allows the comparison of values relative to the others by displaying metric values as bars originating from zero. Bars may be vertical or horizontal—to show horizontal bars, transpose the chart's axes.


Features

Each series is displayed next to each other, unless the Draw Side By Side property of the series is set to False, which displays each series of bars overlapped on top of the previous series.

There are multiple data point labeling options for bar charts, discussed in Using Charts. There are also various skins available.
