Getting Started

The example on this page demonstrates how to create a JavaScript Stacked Column Chart using our feature-rich JavaScript Chart Library, SciChart.js.

SciChart.js allows Stacked Column Charts to be created in JavaScript. A column or rectangle is rendered from the Y-value of each stacked column series to the Y-value of the next, building columns on top of one another. Each column can have different colors, and you can stack to 100% using our library. Learn more below!

Custom Color Maps

All our JavaScript charts are highly configurable and adaptable to suit your preferences and requirements – and color mapping is just one area you can tweak. Color is especially important in a stacked column chart, as it helps users identify each data segment and draw comparisons from column to column.

Using SciChart.js, you can add either solid or gradient fills to each individual column and segment, making it easy to create on-brand, user-friendly charts.

Dealing With High Amounts Of Data

SciChart.js supports millions of individual data points, and has been designed with performance in mind. No matter your requirements (or how much data you’re looking to present), our chart library equips you with the tools to bring your project to life.

Columns require extra geometry and can be difficult to optimize. However, with SciChart, we can perform speeds of up to 60 frames per second for your column charts – much faster than any of the JS chart competitors.

Use Cases And Industries

Our JavaScript stacked column charts make it easy to visualize individual data segments and how they contribute to an overall total. This means the list of potential uses for them is vast, and we’re proud to say that thousands of developers across the world have used our chart solutions.

We work with customers in an array of industries, including pharmaceutical, oil and gas, medical, instrumentation, defence, aerospace, motorsport, process automation, mining, investment banking, trading and more.

The Stacked Chart is good for comparing totals and values of sub-categories. Stacked Charts are particularly effective when the value difference between sub-categories in each category is high. This chart is helpful for comparing the demographics of customers, showing who brings in the most revenue, for instance.

How Does It Work?

In SciChart.js, you can create a JavaScript stacked column chart using the FastColumnRenderableSeries type with the following code:

To change the width of the column, set the dataPointWidth property from 0.0 to 1.0. This alters how much space the column takes up. It’s also possible to render gaps in columns. Explore the full range of functionality and sample code by signing up to our community edition for free today.
