RectangleChart3D

 RectangleChart3D makes a 3D rectangle chart with bars of width , depth and height . RectangleChart3Dmakes a 3D rectangle chart with bar features defined by the symbolic wrappers . RectangleChart3Dmakes a 3D rectangle chart from multiple datasets .
 {xi,yi,zi} pure bar width, depth and height wi[{xi,yi,zi}i,...] a bar with size and wrapper formi->mi a bar form with metadata
• Data not given in these forms is ignored in forming the 3D rectangle chart.
 {e1,e2,...} list of elements with or without wrappers w[{e1,e2,...},...] wrapper applied to a whole dataset w[{data1,data1,...},...] wrapper applied to all datasets
• The following wrappers can be used for chart elements:
 Annotation[e,label] provide an annotation Button[e,action] define an action to execute when the element is clicked EventHandler[e,...] define a general event handler for the element Hyperlink[e,uri] make the element act as a hyperlink Labeled[e,...] display the element with labeling Legended[e,...] include features of the element in a chart legend Mouseover[e,over] make the element show a mouseover form PopupWindow[e,cont] attach a popup window to the element StatusArea[e,label] display in the status area when the element is moused over Style[e,opts] show the element using the specified styles Tooltip[e,label] attach an arbitrary tooltip to the element
 Top,Bottom,Left,Right,Center, Front,Back positions within bars Above,Below, Before, After positions outside bars Axis on the bar origin axis {{bx,by,bz},{lx,ly}} scaled position in the label at scaled position in the bar
 Axes True whether to draw axes BarOrigin Bottom origin of bars BarSpacing Automatic spacing between bars Boxed False whether to draw a bounding box ChartBaseStyle Automatic overall style for bars ChartElements Automatic graphics to use for each of the bars ChartElementFunction Automatic how to generate raw graphics for bars ChartLabels None labels for data elements and datasets ChartLayout Automatic overall layout to use ChartLegends None legends for data elements and datasets ChartStyle Automatic style for bars ColorFunction Automatic how to color bars ColorFunctionScaling True whether to normalize arguments to ColorFunction FaceGrids Automatic grid lines to draw on the bounding box LabelingFunction Automatic how to label elements LegendAppearance Automatic overall appearance of legends Lighting "Neutral" simulated light sources to use PerformanceGoal \$PerformanceGoal aspects of performance to try to optimize ViewPoint Automatic viewing position
• The arguments supplied to ChartElementFunction are the bar region , the data values , and metadata from each level in a nested list of datasets.
• With the setting ChartElements->g, the graphic g will be used to form pictorial bars consisting of stretched versions of g.

 Scope   (27)
Items in a dataset are grouped together:
Datasets do not need to have the same number of items:
Non-real data is taken to be missing:
Use different layouts to display multiple datasets:
Control the origin of bars:
Adjust the spacing between bars and groups of bars:
Use wrappers on individual data, datasets or collections of datasets:
Wrappers can be nested:
Override the default tooltips:
Use PopupWindow to provide additional drilldown information:
Button can be used to trigger any action:
Use an explicit list of styles for the bars:
Use any gradient or indexed color schemes from ColorData:
Use color schemes designed for charting:
ChartBaseStyle can be used to set an initial style for all chart elements:
Style can be used to override styles:
Use any graphic for pictorial bars:
Use built-in programmatically generated bars:
For detailed settings use PalettesChartElementSchemes:
Use Labeled to add a label to a bar:
Use symbolic positions for label placement:
Provide categorical labels for the columns of data:
For rows of data:
For both:
Use Placed to control the positioning of labels, using the same positions as for Labeled:
Provide value labels for bars by using LabelingFunction:
Use Placed to control placement and formatting:
Add categorical legend entries for the columns of data:
For rows of data:
Use Legended to add additional legend entries:
Use Placed to affect the positioning of legends:
 Options   (63)
Change the bar origin:
Use automatically determined spacing between bars:
Use no spacing:
Use symbolic presets:
Use explicit spacing between bars:
Use explicit spacing between bars and groups of bars:
With no spacing used between bars a quantitative x axis is used:
Use ChartBaseStyle to style bars:
ChartBaseStyle combines with ChartStyle:
ChartStyle may override settings for ChartBaseStyle:
ChartBaseStyle combines with Style:
Style may override settings for ChartBaseStyle:
ColorFunction may override settings for ChartBaseStyle:
Create a pictorial chart based on any Graphics3D object:
Use a different graphic for each column of data:
Use a different graphic for each row of data:
Graphics are used cyclically:
Styles are inherited from styles set through ChartStyle etc.:
Override individual styles by using Style:
Explicit styles set in the graphic will override other style settings:
Get a list of built-in settings for ChartElementFunction:
For detailed settings use PalettesChartElementSchemes:
ChartElementFunction is appropriate to show the global scale:
Write a custom ChartElementFunction:
Write a custom ChartElementFunction using :
Chart with optional labeled drop planes:
Setting the metadata to True turns on the drop plane:
By default labels are placed in the axis:
Labeled wrappers in data will place additional labels:
Use Placed to control label placement:
Symbolic positions outside the bar:
Coordinate-based placement relative to a bar:
Coordinate-based placement relative to a bar at a scaled position in the label:
Use the third argument to Placed to control formatting:
By default labels are associated with columns of data:
Associate labels with rows or datasets:
Label both rows and columns:
Use Placed to affect placements:
Place multiple labels:
Generate a legend based on chart style:
Use Legended to add additional legend entries:
Use Legended to specify individual legend entries:
Generate a legend for datasets:
Unused legend labels are dropped:
Legends can be applied to several dimensions:
Use Placed to control the placement of legends:
Use ChartStyle to set the style:
Give a list of styles:
Use "Gradient" colors from ColorData:
Use "Indexed" colors from ColorData:
Styles are used cyclically:
Style each column of data:
Style each row of data:
Style both rows and columns of data:
With both row and column styles, the last style may override earlier ones:
Style override settings for ChartStyle:
ColorFunction overrides settings for ChartStyle:
With different style effects, the settings combine:
ChartElements with explicit style settings overrides settings for ChartStyle:
Color by bar width, depth and height:
Use "Gradient" colors from ColorData:
Use ColorFunctionScaling->False to get unscaled width, depth, and height values:
Color by volume:
ColorFunction overrides settings for ChartStyle:
By default scaled height values are used:
Use ColorFunctionScaling->False to get unscaled height values:
ChartLayout is by default:
Use stepped bars:
Use automatic labeling by values through Tooltip and StatusArea:
Do no automatic labeling:
Use Placed to control label placement:
Symbolic positions outside the bar:
Coordinate-based placement relative to a bar:
Control the formatting of labels:
Use the given chart labels as arguments to the labeling function:
Generate a bar chart with interactive highlighting:
Emphasize performance by disabling interactive behaviors:
Typically less memory is required for non-interactive charts:
