BarSpacing

As of Version 7.0, BarSpacing is part of the built-in Wolfram Language kernel.

BarSpacing

is an option for bar charts that determines the fraction of the bar width to space the bars in a group of bars.

Details and Options

  • To use BarSpacing, you first need to load the Bar Charts Package using Needs["BarCharts`"].
  • BarSpacing sets the distance between bars within a group of bars in BarChart.
  • BarSpacing sets the distance between groups of bars in PercentileBarChart and StackedBarChart.
  • In BarChart3D, BarSpacing->{m,n} specifies distances between bars in the x and y directions.

Examples

Basic Examples  (1)

The bars within a group are tightly packed:

The bars within a group are widely spaced:

The columns are widely spaced:

This leaves space in the x direction, but not in the y direction:
