Property Value

Type Description

A Double value that represents the distance between two neighboring bars as a fraction of axis units, where an axis unit is the distance between two major values on the axis.


The BarDistance property specifies the distance between two bars in a 3D Side-by-Side Bar series. This property’s value is given as a fraction, allowing the distance to be automatically resized when the size of the Chart is changed. For instance, if the BarDistance property is set to 0.5, then the distance between the two bars will be always equal to half the range between the two major values on the axis.

To specify the distance between two bars in pixels, use the SideBySideBar3DSeriesView.BarDistanceFixed property. If both the BarDistance and SideBySideBar3DSeriesView.BarDistanceFixed properties are specified, their values are accumulated together as constant and variable distances.



The BarDistance property is synchronized in all 3D Side-by-Side Bar series which are present in a ChartControl, and all of them always return the same value. So, changing the BarDistance property for any such series, affects the BarDistance property value in all other similar series.

For the same reason, when trying to set the BarDistance property before a Series is added to a chart’s collection, an ArgumentException is thrown.
