The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with two series of the SideBySideRangeBarSeriesView 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.Drawing;
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.SideBySideRangeBar);
    Series series2 = new Series("Series 2", ViewType.SideBySideRangeBar);

    // Add points to them.
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("A", 10, 15));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("B", 4, 7));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("C", 3, 13));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("D", 2, 11));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("E", 1, 8));

    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("A", 9, 13));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("B", 5, 10));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("C", 1, 9));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("D", 3, 7));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("E", 2, 10));

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

    // Access the view-type-specific options of the series.
    SideBySideRangeBarSeriesView myView1 = (SideBySideRangeBarSeriesView)series1.View;
    myView1.MaxValueMarker.Visible = true;
    myView1.MinValueMarker.Visible = true;
    myView1.MinValueMarker.Kind = MarkerKind.Circle;
    myView1.MaxValueMarker.Kind = MarkerKind.Star;
    myView1.MaxValueMarker.StarPointCount = 5;
    ((SideBySideRangeBarSeriesView)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 = "A Side-by-Side Range Bar Chart";
    rangeBarChart.Titles[0].WordWrap = true;

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