VictoryBar

VictoryBar renders a dataset as series of bars. VictoryBar can be composed with VictoryChart to create bar charts.

<VictoryChart
  theme={VictoryTheme.material}
  domainPadding={10}
>
  <VictoryBar
    style={{ data: { fill: "#c43a31" } }}
    data={sampleData}
  />
</VictoryChart>

Props

alignment

type: "start" || "middle" || "end"

The alignment prop specifies how bars should be aligned relative to their data points. This prop may be given as “start”, “middle” or “end”. When this prop is not specified, bars will have “middle” alignment relative to their data points.

<VictoryChart
  theme={VictoryTheme.material}
>
  <VictoryBar
    style={{ data: { fill: "#c43a31" } }}
    alignment="start"
    data={sampleData}
  />
</VictoryChart>

animate

type: boolean || object

VictoryBar uses the standard animate prop. Read about it here

See the Animations Guide for more detail on animations and transitions

animate={{
  duration: 2000,
  onLoad: { duration: 1000 }
}}

barRatio

type: number

The barRatio prop specifies an approximate ratio between bar widths and spaces between bars. When width is not specified via the barWidth prop or in bar styles, the barRatio prop will be used to calculate a default width for each bar given the total number of bars in the data series and the overall width of the chart.

<VictoryChart
  theme={VictoryTheme.material}
  domainPadding={{ x: 15 }}
>
  <VictoryBar
    barRatio={0.8}
    style={{
      data: { fill: "#c43a31" }
    }}
    data={sampleData}
  />
</VictoryChart>

barWidth

type: number || function

The barWidth prop is used to specify the width of each bar. This prop may be given as a number of pixels or as a function that returns a number. When this prop is given as a function, it will be evaluated with the arguments datum, and active. When this value is not given, a default value will be calculated based on the overall dimensions of the chart, and the number of bars.

Note: It is still possible to define bar width via the style prop with the width attribute, but barWidth will take precedence.

<VictoryChart
  theme={VictoryTheme.material}
  domainPadding={{ x: 20 }}
>
  <VictoryBar
    barWidth={40}
    style={{
      data: { fill: "#c43a31" }
    }}
    data={sampleData}
  />
</VictoryChart>

categories

type: array[string] || { x: array[string], y: array[string] }

VictoryBar uses the standard categories prop. Read about it here

categories={{ x: ["dogs", "cats", "mice"] }}

containerComponent

type: element

VictoryBar uses the standard containerComponent prop. Read about it here

containerComponent={<VictoryVoronoiContainer/>}

cornerRadius

type: function || number || { top: number || function, bottom: number || function }

The cornerRadius prop specifies a radius to apply to each bar. If this prop is given as a single number, the radius will only be applied to the top of each bar. When this prop is given as a function, it will be evaluated with the arguments datum, and active.

<VictoryChart
  theme={VictoryTheme.material}
  domainPadding={{ x: 15 }}
>
  <VictoryBar
    cornerRadius={10}
    style={{
      data: {
        fill: "#c43a31",
        width: 25
      }
    }}
    data={sampleData}
  />
</VictoryChart>

data
