The WPF 3D Column Chart (Vertical Bar Chart) uses vertical bars (called columns) to display different values of one or more items. Column chart in WPF is the most common chart types that are being used. It is like a 3D bar chart except that here the bars are vertical and not horizontal. Points from adjacent series are drawn as bars next to each another. It supports rotation and selection.

WPF 3D Column Chart

Key features

WPF 3D Column Chart with Overlapping Bars

Overlapping chart

Compare two different types of relational values using column chart that overlaps one another in WPF. The WPF 3D Column Chart provides an option to customize the spacing between two bars and the width of the bar.

WPF 3D Column Chart with Gradient Brush


Applies gradient colors to visualize data in different colors, improving the readability and appearance of the column chart in WPF.

WPF 3D Column Chart with Markers

Display markers

The WPF 3D Column Chart data points are visualized as marks with built-in symbols such as cross, square, plus, inverted triangles, hexagon, ellipses, vertical lines, horizontal lines, diamonds, triangles, and pentagons.

WPF 3D Column Chart with Data Labels

Data labels

Labels display information about data points. They provide support for customizing the foreground, border, and background, along with template support to customize their default appearance with your desired view. You can rotate a data label by a specified angle.

Code example

Easily get started with the WPF 3D Column Chart using a few simple lines of C# code example as demonstrated below,

<Window x:Class="ChartExample.MainWindow"
        Title="WPF 3D Column Chart" Height="450" Width="700">
  <!--Setting DataContext-->

    <StackPanel HorizontalAlignment="Center"   VerticalAlignment="Center">

            Height="400" Width="400" Depth="500"

             <!--Initialize the horizontal axis for the WPF 3D Chart-->
                <chart:CategoryAxis3D />

            <!--Initialize the vertical axis for the WPF 3D Chart-->
                <chart:NumericalAxis3D />

             <!--Adding 3D Column Series to the WPF 3D Chart-->
                ItemsSource="{Binding CategoricalDatas}"
public class BarChart3DModel 
        public string Year { get; set; }

        public double Plastic { get; set; }

        public double Metal { get; set; }

        public BarChart3DModel(double metal, double plastic, string year)
            Plastic = plastic;
            Year = year;
            Metal = metal;

    public class Chart3DViewModel
        public Chart3DViewModel()
            CategoricalDatas = new ObservableCollection<BarChart3DModel>();

            CategoricalDatas.Add(new BarChart3DModel(7, 5, "2008"));
            CategoricalDatas.Add(new BarChart3DModel(13, 10, "2009"));
            CategoricalDatas.Add(new BarChart3DModel(15, 12, "2010"));
            CategoricalDatas.Add(new BarChart3DModel(21, 20, "2011"));
            CategoricalDatas.Add(new BarChart3DModel(25, 23, "2012"));

        public ObservableCollection<BarChart3DModel> CategoricalDatas
