Remarks

The ManhattanBarSeriesView class provides the functionality of a series view of the manhattan bar type within a chart control.

The ManhattanBarSeriesView class inherits properties and methods from the base Bar3DSeriesView class which define the common settings of the 3D bar series views.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with two series of the ManhattanBarSeriesView type, set its general properties, and add this chart to a form at runtime. Before proceeding with this example, first create a Windows Forms Application in Visual Studio, and include all necessary assemblies to the References list of your project.

Then, add the following code to the Form.Load event handler.

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using DevExpress.XtraCharts;
// ...

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    // Create a new chart.
    ChartControl ManhattanBarChart = new ChartControl();

    // Add a bar series to it.
    Series series1 = new Series("Series 1", ViewType.ManhattanBar);
    Series series2 = new Series("Series 2", ViewType.ManhattanBar);

    // Add points to the series.
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("A", 10));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("B", 12));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("C", 14));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("D", 17));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("A", 5));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("B", 4));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("C", 10));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("D", 12));

    // Add both series to the chart.
    ManhattanBarChart.Series.AddRange(new Series[] { series1, series2 });

    // Access labels of the first series.
    ((BarSeriesLabel)series1.Label).Visible = true;
    ((BarSeriesLabel)series1.Label).ResolveOverlappingMode = 
        ResolveOverlappingMode.Default;

    // Access the series options.
    series1.PointOptions.PointView = PointView.ArgumentAndValues;

    // Customize the view-type-specific properties of the series.
    Bar3DSeriesView myView = (Bar3DSeriesView)series2.View;
    myView.BarDepthAuto = false;
    myView.BarDepth = 1;
    myView.Transparency = 80;
    myView.ShowFacet = false;
    myView.Model = Bar3DModel.Cylinder;

    // Access the diagram's options.
    ((XYDiagram3D)ManhattanBarChart.Diagram).ZoomPercent = 110;

    // Add a title to the chart and hide the legend.
    ChartTitle chartTitle1 = new ChartTitle();
    chartTitle1.Text = "Manhattan Bar Chart";
    ManhattanBarChart.Titles.Add(chartTitle1);
    ManhattanBarChart.Legend.Visible = false;

    // Add the chart to the form.
    ManhattanBarChart.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
    this.Controls.Add(ManhattanBarChart);
}
