Orientation

The orientation of the series depends on which chart axis is horizontal and which one is vertical.

Orientation property could be applied only to CategoricalSeries, such as Bar, Line and Area.

Horizontal BarSeries Example

Here is an example how to create RadCartesianChart with vertical CategoricalAxis and Horizontal Bar Series:

First, create the needed business objects, for example:

public class CategoricalData
{
    public object Category { get; set; }

    public double Value { get; set; }
}

Then create a ViewModel:

public class CategoricalDataViewModel
{
    public ObservableCollection<CategoricalData> Data { get; set; }

    public CategoricalDataViewModel()
    {
        this.Data = GetCategoricalData();
    }

    private static ObservableCollection<CategoricalData> GetCategoricalData()
    {
        var data = new ObservableCollection<CategoricalData>
        {
            new CategoricalData { Category = "A", Value = 101 },
            new CategoricalData { Category = "B", Value = 45 },
            new CategoricalData { Category = "C", Value = 77 },
            new CategoricalData { Category = "D", Value = 15 },
            new CategoricalData { Category = "E", Value = 56 },
        };
        return data;
    }
}

Finally, use the following snippet to declare a RadCartesianChart with Bar Series in XAML:

<telerikChart:RadCartesianChart>
    <telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.BindingContext>
        <local:CategoricalDataViewModel />
    </telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.BindingContext>
    <telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis>
        <telerikChart:CategoricalAxis />
    </telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis>
    <telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.HorizontalAxis>
        <telerikChart:NumericalAxis />
    </telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.HorizontalAxis>
    <telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.Series>
        <telerikChart:BarSeries ValueBinding="Value"
                                CategoryBinding="Category"
                                ItemsSource="{Binding Data}" />
    </telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.Series>
</telerikChart:RadCartesianChart>

Here is the result:

Horizontal BarSeries

Horizontal Stack BarSeries Example

Here is an example how to create RadCartesianChart with vertical CategoricalAxis and Stack Horizontal Bar Series:

First, create the needed business objects, for example:

public class CategoricalData
{
    public object Category { get; set; }

    public double Value { get; set; }
}

Then create a ViewModel:

public class SeriesCategoricalViewModel
{
    public ObservableCollection<CategoricalData> Data1 { get; set; }
    public ObservableCollection<CategoricalData> Data2 { get; set; }

    public SeriesCategoricalViewModel()
    {
        this.Data1 = GetCategoricalData1();
        this.Data2 = GetCategoricalData2();
    }

    private static ObservableCollection<CategoricalData> GetCategoricalData1()
    {
        var data = new ObservableCollection<CategoricalData>
        {
            new CategoricalData { Category = "Greenings", Value = 52 },
            new CategoricalData { Category = "Perfecto", Value = 19 },
            new CategoricalData { Category = "NearBy", Value = 82 },
            new CategoricalData { Category = "Family", Value = 23 },
            new CategoricalData { Category = "Fresh", Value = 56 },
        };
        return data;
    }

    private static ObservableCollection<CategoricalData> GetCategoricalData2()
    {
        var data = new ObservableCollection<CategoricalData>
        {
            new CategoricalData { Category = "Greenings", Value = 33 },
            new CategoricalData { Category = "Perfecto", Value = 51 },
            new CategoricalData { Category = "NearBy", Value = 11 },
            new CategoricalData { Category = "Family", Value = 94 },
            new CategoricalData { Category = "Fresh", Value = 12 },
        };
        return data;
    }
}

Finally, use the following snippet to declare a RadCartesianChart with Bar Series in XAML:

<telerikChart:RadCartesianChart>
    <telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.BindingContext>
        <local:SeriesCategoricalViewModel />
    </telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.BindingContext>
    <telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis>
        <telerikChart:CategoricalAxis />
    </telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis>
    <telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.HorizontalAxis>
        <telerikChart:NumericalAxis />
    </telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.HorizontalAxis>
    <telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.Series>
        <telerikChart:BarSeries ValueBinding="Value"
                                CategoryBinding="Category"
                                CombineMode="Stack"
                                ItemsSource="{Binding Data1}" />
        <telerikChart:BarSeries ValueBinding="Value"
                                CategoryBinding="Category"
                                CombineMode="Stack"
                                ItemsSource="{Binding Data2}" />
    </telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.Series>
</telerikChart:RadCartesianChart>

Here is the result:

Horizontal BarSeries
