Hi, i have a list of object contains "Item name" and "Quantity". When i bind that object to a bar chart, the chart is ordered by Item name.
Even though i've ordered the list by quantity, it still ordered by item name on the chart. What should i do if i want the chart is ordered by quantity ?

I'm using syncfusion essential studio by the way.

Thank you ! :)

Hi Caraka, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

We have analyzed your query. Your requirement can be achieved by using SortBy property of series. In this enum property you can specify either X or Y with respect to which you need to sort the points. This is applicable only if you render the x axis as category, since if you render in double it will render linearly and will not able to sort it. Find the code snippet below to achieve this requirement. 
Windows Forms: 

series1.SortBy = ChartSeriesSortingType.Y; 
series1.Points.Add("Server 1", 256); 
series1.Points.Add("Server 2", 351); 
series1.Points.Add("Server 3", 210); 
series1.Points.Add("Server 4", 200); 
series1.Points.Add("Server 5", 240); 

Screenshot for sorting with respect to Y: 

Sorting with respect to X: 
Sample for reference can be find from below link.
