The Bar Chart displays values as horizonal bars whose lengths are proportional to the values being plotted. You can use a Bar chart in WebAssembly (WASM) and Server-side Blazor dashboard applications to show a comparison between several sets of data (for example, summaries of sales data for different time periods). Each data series is automatically colored differently for easier reading.
The Bar chart is a data bound component which also provides the flexibility to bind axes and series to various data sources separately or together.

You can also mix different types of series in a single chart to create more compelling visuals – such as bar charts and line charts, or area charts. Adding the bar series as the first series in a chart will also rotate the other series (such as area or line series) in the same chart to have the bar chart orientation.
If you want to show trend over time, the Column chart can let you provide DateTime values for its x-axis and it will aggregate the data points falling in the intervals you choose.
The Bar Chart renders in the browser to preserve server resources. It has SVG markup and <canvas> rendering modes to improve performance further, and it can even animate during rendering for a smoother user experience.
You can customize all aspects of the Bar chart – from the series color, to its labels content, font, size, position, and the axis lines, their labels and formatting.
The Bar Chart can render more than one axis in each dimension and you can associate each series with its own axes. This lets you show data that varies on orders of magnitude in the same chart without loss of detail.
The Bar chart lets you stack different series in one data category on top of each other to showcase cumulative effects.
The Label Format Strings in UI for Blazor Bar Charts, are culture aware so your users see, for example, the expected number formats with the decimal and thousands separators they are used to.
The Telerik Blazor Bar Chart component has several built-in themes such as Default (our own styling), Material (based on the Material Design guidelines) and Bootstrap (which looks like the Bootstrap styling to integrate better). Each theme predefines several series colors, so your data is visualized according to your design guidelines. You can further customize any of the out-of-the box themes, style a specific chart component or create new theme to match your colors and branding by using the Telerik SASS ThemeBuilder application.
