Basic Examples  (4)

Generate a rectangle chart for a list of width and height pairs:

Multiple datasets:

Use categorical labels:

Categorical legends:

Set the style for bars:

Pictorial bars:

Procedural bars:

Scope  (39)

Data and Layouts  (12)

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:

The data may include units:

Specify the units to use:

The time stamps in TimeSeries, EventSeries, and TemporalData are ignored:

The values in associations are taken as the dimensions of the bars:

Use the keys as labels:

Use the keys as callouts:

Use the keys as legends:

Associations can be nested:

The weights in WeightedData are ignored:

Use different layouts to display multiple datasets:

Control the origin of bars:

Adjust the spacing between bars and groups of bars:

Wrappers  (5)

Use wrappers on individual data, datasets, or collections of datasets:

Wrappers can be nested:

Override the default tooltips:

Use any object in the tooltip:

Use PopupWindow to provide additional drilldown information:

Button can be used to trigger any action:

Styling and Appearance  (9)

Use an explicit list of styles for the bars:

Use any gradient or indexed color schemes from ColorData:

Use color schemes designed for charting:

Alter the appearance of charts with built-in themes:

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 Palettes ChartElementSchemes:

Use a theme with detailed frame ticks and grid lines:

Use a theme with a high-contrast color scheme and edge-fading rectangles:

Labeling and Legending  (13)

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:

Use Callout to add a label to a bar:

Change the appearance of the callout:

Automatically position callouts:

Provide value labels for bars by using LabelingFunction:

Use Placed to control placement and formatting:

Generate callouts from the data:

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  (69)

BarOrigin  (1)

Change the bar origin:

BarSpacing  (5)

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:

ChartBaseStyle  (5)

Use ChartBaseStyle to style all bars:

ChartBaseStyle combines with ChartStyle:

ChartStyle may override settings for ChartBaseStyle:

ChartBaseStyle combines with Style:

Style may override settings for ChartBaseStyle:

ChartBaseStyle combines with ColorFunction:

ColorFunction may override settings for ChartBaseStyle:

ChartElements  (9)

Create a pictorial chart based on any Graphics object:

Graphics3D:

Image:

Use a stretched version of the graphic:

Use explicit sizes for width and height:

Without AspectRatio->Full, the original aspect ratio is preserved:

Using All for width or height causes that direction to stretch to the full size of the bar:

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:

Explicit styles set in the graphic will override other style settings:

The orientation of the pictorial graphic is unaffected by BarOrigin:

Create true 3D shaded bars:

ChartElementFunction  (5)

Get a list of built-in settings for ChartElementFunction:

For detailed settings use Palettes ChartElementSchemes:

Here is a ChartElementFunction appropriate to show the global scale:

Write a custom ChartElementFunction:

Use metadata passed on from the input, in this case charting the data:

ChartLabels  (8)

By default, labels are placed in the axis:

Labeled wrappers in data will place additional labels:

Use Placed to control label placement:

Positions outside the bar:

Coordinate-based placement relative to a bar:

Place all labels at the upper-right corner and vary the coordinates within the label:

Use the third argument to Placed to control formatting:

Use a hyperlink label:

Rotate the labels:

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:

Use Callout to connect the labels to the bars:

Place multiple labels:

ChartLayout  (1)

ChartLayout is grouped by default:

Use stepped bars:

ChartLegends  (4)

Generate a legend based on chart style:

Use Legended to add additional legend entries:

Or 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:

ChartStyle  (7)

Use ChartStyle to style bars:

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 overrides settings for ChartStyle:

ColorFunction overrides settings for ChartStyle:

ChartElements with explicit style settings override settings for ChartStyle:

ColorFunction  (4)

Color by bar height:

Use ColorFunctionScaling->False to get unscaled height values:

Color by area:

ColorFunction overrides styles in ChartStyle:

Use ColorFunction to combine different style effects:

ColorFunctionScaling  (2)

Use ColorFunctionScaling->False to get unscaled height values:

Color by area:

LabelingFunction  (8)

Use automatic labeling by values through Tooltip and StatusArea:

Do no labeling:

Use Placed to control label placement:

Symbolic positions outside the bar:

Coordinate-based placement relative to a bar:

Use Callout to place labels automatically:

Use symbolic positions to place Callout labels:

Control the formatting of labels:

Use the given chart labels as arguments to the labeling function:

LabelingSize  (4)

Textual labels are shown at their actual sizes:

Image labels are automatically resized:

Specify a maximum size for textual labels:

Specify a maximum size for image labels:

Show image labels at their natural sizes:

PerformanceGoal  (3)

Generate a bar chart with interactive highlighting:

Emphasize performance by disabling interactive behaviors:

Typically, less memory is required for non-interactive charts:

Turn off the grid lines:

TargetUnits  (2)

Units are automatically detected:

Specify the units to show in each direction:
