    Given below is the list of 2D charts that falls under the Bar Chart category.

    Bar Chart

    In a Bar Chart, values are represented by the height of the bar shaped marker as measured by the y-axis. Category labels are displayed on the x-axis. Use a bar chart to compare values of items across categories.

    Chart Information

    ChartType Bar2D
    Number of Y values per data point 1
    Number of series 1 or more
    Marker support Series or Data Point
    Custom Properties The Gap property gets or sets the space between the bars of each X axis value.

    Below is an example of how to set the custom chart properties at run time for a bar chart.

    Visual Basic
    Copy Code
    Me.ChartControl1.Series(0).Properties("Gap") = 50.0F
    C#
    Copy Code
    this.ChartControl1.Series[0].Properties["Gap"] = 50f;

    Gantt Chart

    The Gantt chart is a project management tool used to chart the progress of individual project tasks. The chart compares project task completion to the task schedule.

    Number of Y values per data point 2
    Number of Series 1 or more

    Custom Properties The Gap property gets or sets the space between the bars of each X axis value.

    Below is an example of how to set the custom chart properties at run time for a Gantt chart.

    C#
    Copy Code
    this.ChartControl1.Series[0].Properties["Gap"] = 50f;

    Horizontal Bar Chart

    In a Horizontal Bar Chart, both the axes are swapped and therefore the bars appears horizontally. Although, values are represented by the height of the bar shaped marker as measured by the y-axis and the Category labels are displayed on the x-axis. Use a horizontal bar chart to compare values of items across categories.

    Below is an example of how to set the custom chart properties at run time for a horizontal bar chart.

    Visual Basic
    Copy Code
    Me.ChartControl1.Series(0).Properties("Gap") = 65.0F
    C#
    Copy Code
    this.ChartControl1.Series[0].Properties["Gap"] = 65f;

    Stacked Bar Chart

    A stacked bar chart is a bar chart with two or more data series stacked one on top of the other. Use this chart to show how each value contributes to a total.

    Me.ChartControl1.Series(0).Properties("Gap") = 100.0F
    C#
    Copy Code
    this.ChartControl1.Series[0].Properties["Gap"] = 100f;

    Stacked Bar Chart 100%

    A StackedBAR110Pct chart is a bar chart with two or more data series stacked one on top of the other to sum up to 100%. Use this chart to show how each value contributes to a total with the relative size of each series representing its contribution to the total.
