Represents a series view of the Bar type.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v18.2.dll

Declaration

[TypeConverter(typeof(SideBySideBarSeriesViewTypeConverter))]
public class SideBySideBarSeriesView :
    BarSeriesView,
    ISideBySideBarSeriesView,
    IBarSeriesView
<TypeConverter(GetType(SideBySideBarSeriesViewTypeConverter))>
Public Class SideBySideBarSeriesView
    Inherits BarSeriesView
    Implements ISideBySideBarSeriesView,
               IBarSeriesView

Remarks

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

In addition to the common bar view settings inherited from the base BarSeriesView class, the SideBySideBarSeriesView class declares the SideBySideBarSeriesView.BarDistanceFixed and SideBySideBarSeriesView.BarDistance properties which control the space between adjacent bars.

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 simple bar type please see the Side-by-Side Bar Chart topic.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with two series of the SideBySideBarSeriesView 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;
// ...

namespace SideBySideBar2D {
    public partial class Form1 : Form {
        public Form1() {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
            // Create an empty chart.
            ChartControl sideBySideBarChart = new ChartControl();

            // Create the first side-by-side bar series and add points to it.
            Series series1 = new Series("Side-by-Side Bar Series 1", ViewType.Bar);
            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));

            // Create the second side-by-side bar series and add points to it.
            Series series2 = new Series("Side-by-Side Bar Series 2", ViewType.Bar);
            series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("A", 15));
            series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("B", 18));
            series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("C", 25));
            series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint("D", 33));

            // Add the series to the chart.
            sideBySideBarChart.Series.Add(series1);
            sideBySideBarChart.Series.Add(series2);

            // Hide the legend (if necessary).
            sideBySideBarChart.Legend.Visibility = DevExpress.Utils.DefaultBoolean.False;

            // Rotate the diagram (if necessary).
            ((XYDiagram)sideBySideBarChart.Diagram).Rotated = true;

            // Add a title to the chart (if necessary).
            ChartTitle chartTitle1 = new ChartTitle();
            chartTitle1.Text = "Side-by-Side Bar Chart";
            sideBySideBarChart.Titles.Add(chartTitle1);

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

    }
}
