Column Chart

The “column” chart type renders multiple vertical columns for each row of data. This chart type has many use cases, such as comparing values grouped by lookup values, or showing change over time. The example below shows the number of orders received over time in the Northwind sample app.

To use “column” chart type, add the keyword “column” to any “pivot-” tag, and make sure that it is separated with hyphens (-).
