extends Serializable

Provides access to members that control bar chart symbol properties.

Description

This interface provides access to the properties of a BarChartSymbol which is used by a ChartRenderer to draw bar or column charts for a feature layer.

Remarks

Use this interface to access the properties of a BarChartSymbol which is a data driven symbol used by a ChartRenderer to draw features with bar/column charts.

When setting up a ChartRenderer to draw bar/column charts through code, you need to work with this interface.
