This article explains how to create 3D Clustered Pyramid Chart in Excel using XlsIO.
What is 3D Clustered Pyramid Chart?
A variation on a column/bar chart that uses pyramid shapes instead of rectangular columns/bars is called a Pyramid chart. A 3D clustered pyramid chart use three axes (horizontal axis, vertical axis and depth axis), and they compare data points along the horizontal and the depth axes. This chart can be used to compare data across both the categories and the data series.
3D Clustered Pyramid Chart created using XlsIO
To create 3D clustered pyramid chart in Excel using XlsIO, you need to do the following steps.
Steps to create 3D Clustered Pyramid Chart
Create a chart object by calling the worksheet.Charts.Add method and specify the chart type to ExcelChartType.Pyramid_Clustered_3D enumeration value.
Set a range of data from the worksheet to chart’s DataRange property. To plot the series values in column and categories in row, set chart’s IsSeriesInRows property to false.
Add the basic elements like chart title, data labels and legend with below list of properties.
Add the 3D chart elements like rotation, elevation and perspective.
Applicable properties for 3D Clustered Pyramid Chart
NOTE: Applying properties apart from the mentioned list might throw exception or the changes will not be reflected in the output document because those properties are not related to 3D clustered pyramid chart.
