    I recently tried to make my RadCartesionChart w/ bar series horizontal.  It took be more than an hour trying to duplicate the demo you provide before I found the right documentation.  The demo has attaches an "orientation" property from a telerik.examples namespace.  In order words, hard to copy.  The radchartview/radchark deocumentation does not tell you either.  If was only the xamlflix that said:

    Note that RadChartView does not have Bar and HorizontalBar series types; it has only one Bar type and the orientation is set by properly initializing RadCartesianChart.HorixontalAxis and the RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis properties.

    Please update your examples/documentation to make this more obvious.

    Hello Eric,

     We are sorry to hear that it took you so long to reproduce the demo. However please note that such information about Horizontal series already exists in our documentation here (3. Series (- Series Orientation)).
    We'll consider adding this information in our Chart Series topic also.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    I tried to follow the documentation that you provided for Orientation and it's very poor. Suggesting the provided link is also of little use.

    I cannot find a working example for a bar orientation. On the UI for WPF launcher there is a reference to a majic .dll that does all the work but is not included - neither is its location.


    I am still unable to set orientation for a Bar Chart - can you provide a working example with all code please.

    Hello David,

    We are sorry to hear that you were not able to create Horizontal Bar Series even with the information provided in our documentation. I attached a sample project that demonstrates how you might achieve this (click on the checkbox on the demo to see how the Bar Series change from Vertical to Horizontal).
    Feel free to review the code and modify the project per your own scenario needs.
    As for the UI for WPF launcher and the strange majic.dll that you mentioned - I'm not sure where and how you come upon such assembly. 
    In fact there is an online demo with full source code provided that shows how to change the Bars from Vertical to Horizontal - here is link to it. Use the checkbox in the Configuration Panel on the Left to switch to Horizontal Bar Series.
