The bar chart is very similar to the column chart. The only difference is that it is oriented the other way.

Bar charts display your data using horizontal rectangular bars. The length of the bar is proportional to the data value.

Your search needs at least one attribute and one measure to be represented as a bar chart.

Stacked bar charts

The stacked bar chart is similar to the bar chart, but with one major difference. It includes a legend, which divides each bar into additional sections by color.

Stacked bar charts are typically used when you want to compare aggregated data and the data that it includes together. You can toggle the options in styles to show Detailed Labels (summaries for each section of each bar) and Total Labels (show the sum of the stacks for each bar).

It is important to note that stacked bar charts plot the y-axis as a percentage by default. You can choose to toggle Show Y-Axis as % on or off in the Configuration Options. This feature is also available for stacked area charts.

Your search needs at least two attributes and one measure to be represented as a stacked bar chart.
