Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Charts


public class OverlappedRangeBarSeriesView :


The OverlappedRangeBarSeriesView class provides the functionality of a series view of the overlapped range bar type within a chart control.

The OverlappedRangeBarSeriesView class inherits properties and methods from the base RangeBarSeriesView class which defines the common settings of range bar series views.

Note that a particular view type can be defined for a series via its SeriesBase.View property.

For more information on series views of the overlapped range bar type please see the Overlapped Range Bar Chart topic.


The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with two series of the OverlappedRangeBarSeriesView type, 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 rangeBarChart = new ChartControl();

    // Create two range bar series.
    Series series1 = new Series("Series 1", ViewType.RangeBar);
    Series series2 = new Series("Series 2", ViewType.RangeBar);

    // Add points to them.
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("A", 9, 15));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("B", 4, 10));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("C", 3, 13));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("D", 2, 11));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("E", 1, 10));

    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("A", 10, 13));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("B", 5, 7));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("C", 6, 9));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("D", 3, 7));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("E", 2, 8));

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

    // Access the view-type-specific options of the series.
    RangeBarSeriesView myView1 = (RangeBarSeriesView)series1.View;
    myView1.MaxValueMarker.Visible = true;
    myView1.MinValueMarker.Visible = true;
    myView1.MinValueMarker.Kind = MarkerKind.Circle;
    myView1.MinValueMarker.Kind = MarkerKind.Circle;
    myView1.MaxValueMarker.Kind = MarkerKind.Star;
    myView1.MaxValueMarker.StarPointCount = 5;
    ((RangeBarSeriesView)series2.View).BarWidth = 0.4;

    // Access the type-specific options of the diagram.
    ((XYDiagram)rangeBarChart.Diagram).EnableAxisXZooming = true;

    // Hide the legend (if necessary).
    rangeBarChart.Legend.Visible = false;

    // Add a title to the chart (if necessary).
    rangeBarChart.Titles.Add(new ChartTitle());
    rangeBarChart.Titles[0].Text = "An Overlapped Range Bar Chart";
    rangeBarChart.Titles[0].WordWrap = true;

    // Add the chart to the form.
    rangeBarChart.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
