15.4.6.3 Bar Series

Bar series objects are created by the bar or barh functions. Each hggroup element contains a single patch object. The properties of the bar series are

showbaseline
baseline
basevalue

The property showbaseline flags whether the baseline of the bar series is displayed (default is "on"). The handle of the graphics object representing the baseline is given by the baseline property and the y-value of the baseline by the basevalue property.

Changes to any of these property are propagated to the other members of the bar series and to the baseline itself. Equally changes in the properties of the base line itself are propagated to the members of the corresponding bar series.

barwidth
barlayout
horizontal

The property barwidth is the width of the bar corresponding to the width variable passed to bar or barh. Whether the bar series is "grouped" or "stacked" is determined by the barlayout property and whether the bars are horizontal or vertical by the horizontal property.

Changes to any of these property are propagated to the other members of the bar series.

linewidth
linestyle

The line width and style of the edge of the patch objects making up the bars. See Line Styles.

edgecolor
facecolor

The line and fill color of the patch objects making up the bars. See Colors.

xdata

The nominal x positions of the bars. Changes in this property and propagated to the other members of the bar series.

ydata

The y value of the bars in the hggroup.

xdatasource
ydatasource

Data source variables.
