The JavaScript bar chart is one of the most common chart types, used to compare the frequency, count, total, or average of data in different categories with horizontal bars. They are ideal for showing variations in the value of an item over time.

Multiple series

Plot multiple series in a single chart to compare different data sets. Enabling the legend and tooltip gives readers more information about the individual series.


Mark data points with built-in shapes: circles, rectangles, ellipses, vertical lines, horizontal lines, diamonds, triangles, pentagons, crosses, and pluses. In addition to these shapes, use images to make the points more attractive.

Data label

Data labels display information about data points. Add a template to display data labels with HTML elements such as images, DIV, and spans for more informative data labels. You can rotate a data label by its given angle.

Multiple axes

Use multiple axes to plot different data sets that widely vary from one other.

Back-to-back bar chart

Plot data bi-directionally to compare and analyze the values clearly.

Spacing and width

Customize the spacing between two bars and the widths of the bars.

Rounded corners

Modernize the UI by applying rounded corners to the bar chart.

Grouped bar

The grouped bar feature allows you to group a series with another series by giving the group a different name.

Cylindrical bar

Modernize the UI by displaying value as cylindrical-shaped data points.


Customize the look and feel of the bar chart using built-in APIs.
