Series spacing


I created a chart with three series, each having only one data point. The reason for this is that I wanted each bar to have a different color and I couldn't find a way to do that with all three data points being part of one series.

The challenge I have now is that there is a LOT of space between each of the bars, which looks weird because the bars end up being fairly thin - probably 1/3 as wide as the blank space between them. What I'd like to do is have roughly the same spacing as if all data points were part of one series; I'd like to remove the spacing between the series.

Thanks for your help.

We would like to let you know that we can customize the spacing between two segments by using the Spacing property for bar series, we have also prepared a sample for your requirement. Please find the sample from the following location.

Thanks for the reply and sample. Unfortunately, this example shows how to control the spacing between "bars" in the same series, but not the spacing between multiple series.

Your sample may allow me to change back to using a single series since you're showing a different color for each bar. In your sample you use a color "Palette" with a value of "Metro"; are there other palettes pre-defined? If so, is there somewhere I can look to see what colors they represent? More importantly though, how can I define a custom palette so that I can control the colors used?

Thanks again.

Hi Ken,
