Stacked Column Chart

The Ignite UI for Angular stacked column chart belongs to a group of category charts and is rendered using a collection of rectangles (IgxStackedFragmentSeriesComponent) that are stacked on top of each other. Each stacked fragment in the collection represents one visual element in each stack. Each stack can contain both positive and negative values. All positive values are grouped on the positive side of the y-axis, and all negative values are grouped on the negative side of the y-axis. IgxStackedColumnSeriesComponent uses the same concepts of data plotting as IgxStackedBarSeriesComponent but data points are stacked along vertical line (y-axis) rather than along horizontal line (x-axis). In other words, the stacked column chart is rendered like the stacked bar chart but with 90 degrees counter-clockwise rotation.


The IgxStackedColumnSeriesComponent has its own IgxSeriesComponent collection in which you can place the IgxStackedFragmentSeriesComponent elements. These fragments are what make up the actual rendering of the chart and are the elements that accept the valueMemberPath.

Required Axes

The Angular data chart component provides various types of axes but only the following types of axes can be used with IgxStackedColumnSeriesComponent.

Required Data

The IgxStackedColumnSeriesComponent has the following data requirements:

Required Modules

Creation of the IgxStackedColumnSeriesComponent requires the following modules:

// axis' modules:
import { IgxCategoryXAxis } from 'igniteui-angular-charts';
import { IgxNumericYAxis } from 'igniteui-angular-charts';
// series' modules:
import { IgxStackedColumnSeries } from 'igniteui-angular-charts';
// data chart's modules:

import { IgxDataChartCoreModule } from 'igniteui-angular-charts';
import { IgxDataChartCategoryModule } from 'igniteui-angular-charts';
import { IgxDataChartStackedModule } from 'igniteui-angular-charts';

    imports: [
        // ...
        // ...

This code demonstrates how to create an instance of the Ignite UI for Angular data chart with IgxStackedColumnSeriesComponent and bind it to a data source.
