Bar Race

by Inovista




  • The chart presents a typical bar chart but offers the capability of animating the bars through periods such as time. The bars resize and relocate for each period.
  • A user can pause the animation at any point and can then restart the animation or browse to the next or previous period.
  • Values are shown at the end of each bar.
  • A variety of properties are available to the designer which include adjustment of point and period change duration, show/hide pause panel, font/color editing and the number of bar items to be shown.
