Bar Chart

This type of chart displays numeric data with bars. Each bar represents a dimension point, and the height or length represents a value.

Bar Charts can be Vertical and Horizontal.



The Vertical Bar chart is the default type.

Both Bar Chart types have the same settings and limitations, so you may switch to horizontal view and back at any time. 

To create a Bar chart, add values and dimensions from the Data Source tab by dragging and dropping them to the corresponding fields of the Edit Chart Panel.

Labels under the bar graph can be displayed fully or cropped, depending on the lengths of a string.
