StackedBarSeriesView Class

Represents a series view of the Stacked Bar type.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Charts


public class StackedBarSeriesView :


The StackedBarSeriesView class provides the functionality of a series view of the stacked bar type within a chart control. At the same time, the StackedBarSeriesView class serves as a base for the FullStackedBarSeriesView class.

The StackedBarSeriesView class inherits properties and methods from the base BarSeriesView class which define the common settings of 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 stacked bar type please see the Stacked Bar Chart topic.


This example shows how to bind a chart control to a data source and create two Stacked Bar series based on a series template.

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

namespace Series_StackedBarChart {
    public partial class Form1 : Form {
        public Form1() {
        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {

            // Create a chart and add it to the form:
            ChartControl chart = new ChartControl();
            chart.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;

            // Bind the chart to a data source:
            chart.DataSource = DataPoint.GetDataPoints();
            chart.SeriesTemplate.SeriesDataMember = "Company";
            chart.SeriesTemplate.SetDataMembers("Product", "Income");

            // Enable series point labels, specify their text pattern and position:
            chart.SeriesTemplate.LabelsVisibility = DevExpress.Utils.DefaultBoolean.True;
            chart.SeriesTemplate.Label.TextPattern = "${V}M";
            ((BarSeriesLabel)chart.SeriesTemplate.Label).Position = BarSeriesLabelPosition.Center;

            // Customize series view settings (for example, bar width):
            StackedBarSeriesView view = (StackedBarSeriesView)chart.SeriesTemplate.View;
            view.BarWidth = 0.8;

            // Disable minor tickmarks on the x-axis:
            XYDiagram diagram = (XYDiagram)chart.Diagram;
            diagram.AxisX.Tickmarks.MinorVisible = false;

            // Add a chart title:
            chart.Titles.Add(new ChartTitle { Text = "Sales by Products" });

            // Specify legend settings:
            chart.Legend.MarkerMode = LegendMarkerMode.CheckBoxAndMarker;
            chart.Legend.AlignmentHorizontal = LegendAlignmentHorizontal.Center;
            chart.Legend.AlignmentVertical = LegendAlignmentVertical.TopOutside;
