Create a stacked chart consisting of several Bar Charts.

Note: This plug-in is located in: Built Ins -> Container plug-ins -> VisualDataTools

This page contains the following topics and procedures:

Bar Stack Properties


  • Initialize stacked chart: Refreshes the stacked chart, based on the Bar Chart plug-ins in the sub-containers. The stacked chart detects when a chart is added/removed from the stack, and updates the chart accordingly. However, some actions, such as re-ordering the charts within a stack, are not updated automatically. In these cases, press Initialize stacked chart to update the stack.

  • Stack Gap: Adds space between each chart.

Note: The remaining properties in the Line Stack plug-in are the same as used in the Bar Chart plug-in. The Bar Chart features Specify X Values, DataY Compare, and Bevel, are disabled in stacked charts.
