I want to build a column chart with 2 series. I don’t want columns to be stacked, but rather to show side by side.

The 2 series have the same XVariable (Days of the month). Because of that, whatever I do, I end up with stacked columns. I tried:

  • Using FastColumnRenderableSeries instead of StackedColumnRenderableSeries – It still rendered as stacked columns
  • Assigning a different StackedGroupId to different series – Nothing happened

But it did not work.

I also went into the example “Stacked Columns (Side by Side)”, and tried to change the StackedGroupId of the last serie to “C”, which had no effect. Also, when I made the data have the same X variable, all the columns became stacked (regardless of the StackedGroupId – Does StackedGroupId do anything?)

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Cadbo,

We are undertaking work in our internal build to improve the Column charts API to allow you to create more Excel style charts. Please see our preview of v3.2 here:

New Columns side-by-side / Stacked Columns API

This feature is still in progress and subject to review, however we have listened to your feedback about the Side-by-side columns / Stacked columns and improved this API to allow more Excel-style charts. More to be announced soon.

Best regards,

    Thank you. Looking forward to it. My support period will be finished in 20 days, do you think this release will be done before? If not, what can I do to get this update (short of rebuying the entire suite)

    Hi there, possibly, but there are always stability updates (bug fixes) shortly after we release a new feature or features like these. Depending on which product you have (Basic, Pro, Source), you might be able to renew quite cheaply. You may have received a renewal email with renewal options. If not, contact sales and let us know!
