Bar and column charts

BinderScriptNotebook

Summary: This example shows how to create bar and a column charts in F#.

let's first create some data for the purpose of creating example charts:

open Plotly.NET 
  
let values = [20; 14; 23;]
let keys   = ["Product A"; "Product B"; "Product C";]

A bar chart or bar graph is a chart that presents grouped data with rectangular bars with lengths proportional to the values that they represent. The bars can be plotted vertically or horizontally. A vertical bar chart is called a column bar chart.

Column Charts

let column = Chart.Column(values,keys)

Bar Charts

let bar =
    Chart.Bar(values,keys)

Stacked bar chart or column charts

The following example shows how to create a stacked bar chart by combining bar charts created by combining multiple Chart.StackedBar charts:

Basically those charts are just normal bar/column charts with the Layout property BarMode set to Stack. You can do this yourself by changing the Chart layout.

Stacked bar Charts

let stackedBar =
    [
        Chart.StackedBar(values,keys,Name="old");
        Chart.StackedBar([8; 21; 13;],keys,Name="new")
    ]
    |> Chart.combine

let stackedColumn =
    [
        Chart.StackedColumn(values,keys,Name="old");
        Chart.StackedColumn([8; 21; 13;],keys,Name="new")
    ]
    |> Chart.combine
