    I can't find how to make a 3D horizontal bar chart. Is there a series definition to do this? Or does anyone have instructions on how to make a Custom 3D model that can do this?

    I'm using the document at

    to build a test application. I'm also using the code behind, so a piece of my code is:

     SeriesMapping seriesMapping = new SeriesMapping();
     seriesMapping.LegendLabel = "Product Sales";
     Bar3DSeriesDefinition def = new Bar3DSeriesDefinition();
     seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition = new Bar3DSeriesDefinition();//new HorizontalBarSeriesDefinition();//new SplineSeriesDefinition();
     seriesMapping.ItemMappings.Add(new ItemMapping("Month", DataPointMember.XValue));
     seriesMapping.ItemMappings.Add(new ItemMapping("Quantity", DataPointMember.YValue));
     seriesMapping.ItemMappings.Add(new ItemMapping("MonthName", DataPointMember.XCategory));
     radChart1.ItemsSource = this.CreateData();

    public class ProductSales
     public ProductSales(int quantity, int month, string monthName)
      this.Quantity = quantity;
      this.Month = month;
      this.MonthName = monthName;
     public int Quantity
     public int Month
     public string MonthName

    private List<ProductSales> CreateData()
     List<ProductSales> persons = new List<ProductSales>();
     persons.Add(new ProductSales(154, 1, "January"));
     persons.Add(new ProductSales(138, 2, "February"));
     persons.Add(new ProductSales(143, 3, "March"));
     persons.Add(new ProductSales(120, 4, "April"));
     persons.Add(new ProductSales(135, 5, "May"));
     persons.Add(new ProductSales(125, 6, "June"));
     persons.Add(new ProductSales(179, 7, "July"));
     persons.Add(new ProductSales(170, 8, "August"));
     persons.Add(new ProductSales(198, 9, "September"));
     persons.Add(new ProductSales(187, 10, "October"));
     persons.Add(new ProductSales(193, 11, "November"));
     persons.Add(new ProductSales(212, 12, "December"));
     return persons;

    thanks in advance

    Hello Kelly Hamilton,

    Unfortunately RadChart does not support such kind of customization and it would not be possible to achieve the desired effect. Generally it is possible to customize the 3D model for vertical bars as explained here but unfortunately this approach is inapplicable in your scenario as there is no built-in horizontal 3D series type that can be used as a basis for the modifications.

    If your scenario requires horizontal bars, we would suggest you to consider the 2D series type instead.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
