I can't seem to figure out how to overlap series bars (vertical or horizontal). For example, I have two sets of data and series two is always a subset of series one.

User    Total  Sub
------- ----- -----
Bob        37    20
Jane      120    55
Jim        49    23
George      7     7
Sue       145   107

I can get bars side-by-side, but I'd like to float the lower value (it's ALWAYS lower) over the higher values to show comparison/progress. Ideas?

Hello Art Kedzierski,

Currently RadChart does not support overlapping of bars, however, you can achieve this goal using stacked bars. What you need to do is having both bar series ( Sub and Total ) in the same stack in order to be drawn above each other and also modify the data, so that the Total bar displays the correct value, instead of adding it's own to the value of the Sub bar.

Please, review the attached sample project, which demonstrates how to create such a scenario.

Hope this helps.If you need further assistance, please, do not hesitate to contact us.

All the best,

I had a crazy idea about replacing the horizontal bar with a radProgressBar. I'll take a look at your code and play with my idea as well and let you know how it goes.

I'll stick with your suggestion; works great, even horizontal!

Thank you much!
