Bar object
The Bar object identifies a bar in the chart. A Bar object contains three parts: the start part and end part identifies the corners of the bar, and the middle part of the bar. The look and feel of the middle part of the bar are defined by the properties: Color, Pattern and Shape. The StartShape and StartColor properties defines the start part of the bar. The EndShape and EndColor properties defines the end part of the bar. Use the Bars property to access the Bars collection. Use the Chart object property to access the control's chart. Use the AddBar method to add a bar to an item. Use the Add and Copy methods to add new Bar objects. The Bar object supports the following properties and methods:
