    Hi,
    I am using  a chart control including 2 bar series, I need to make each bar in one series be overlapped with the bar in the other series, because I need to simulate "Bullet graph"

    thanks,
    Mohamed Taraman

    I've the same issue.
    I see the Sliver light version, but I want to do it in a simpler way.

    Hello Adel,

    You can control the overlapping of the Bars by the BarOverlapPercent property. Please note that this property will work for bars which are from different series.

    As a personal suggestion - you may use the ready to use BulletGraph Silverlight control and integrate it in your asp.net web application. In the code behind of your ASP.NET page, you can simply render the BulletGraph control when the page loads.There are several online resources that can help you achive that.Take a look at the Todd Anglin's webcast which describes how to integrate Silverlight controls in ASP.NET. For practical example with source code - you can review our integration demo that vizualises our Silverlight Chart in ASP.NET page. 

    Kind regards,

    Hello Adel and Mohamed,

    You may find a sample project demonstrating the BarOverlapPercent property in action. The chart is databound to a generic list of objects as described in our help topic.
    Please have in mind that this is rather a work-around and I still reccomend that you integrate our ready to use and fully functional Silverlight BulletGraph in your ASP.NET website instead of trying to create your own by overlapping the Bars.

    All the best,
