The Column Chart is one of the primary charting types that you may need to add to your Blazor WebAssembly (WASM) and Server-side dashboard application. It displays values as vertical bars whose heights are proportional to the values being plotted. You can use a Column chart to show a comparison between several sets of data (for example, summaries of sales data over different time periods). Each series is automatically colored differently for easier reading.
The Column 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 column charts and line charts, or area charts.
The Column 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.
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 Column Chart can render more than one axis in each dimension and you can associate each series with its own axes. This lets you associate data series with different axes, and position them to the left, right, top or bottom of the chart.
You can customize all aspects of the Column chart – from the series color, to its labels content, font, size, position, and the axis lines, their labels and formatting.
The Column 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 Column 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 Column Chart component has several built-in themes such as Default (our own styling), Material (based on the Material Design guidelines), Bootstrap (which looks like the Bootstrap styling to integrate better) and Fluent (based on Microsoft Fluent UI). 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.
