Column Class

Creates a Column Chart. Much of the methods are inherited from Bar. A Column Chart is a useful visualization technique to display quantitative information for different categories that can show some progression (or regression) in the data set. As with all other series, the Column Series must be appended in the series Chart array configuration. See the Chart documentation for more information. A typical configuration object for the column series could be:

var store = Ext.create('', {
            fields: ['name', 'data'],
            data: [
            { 'name': 'metric one',   'data':10 },
            { 'name': 'metric two',   'data': 7 },
            { 'name': 'metric three', 'data': 5 },
            { 'name': 'metric four',  'data': 2 },
            { 'name': 'metric five',  'data':27 }
            Ext.create('Ext.chart.Chart', {
            renderTo: Ext.getBody(),
            width: 500,
            height: 300,
            animate: true,
            store: store,
            axes: [
            type: 'Numeric',
            position: 'left',
            fields: ['data'],
            label: {
            renderer: Ext.util.Format.numberRenderer('0,0')
            title: 'Sample Values',
            grid: true,
            minimum: 0
            type: 'Category',
            position: 'bottom',
            fields: ['name'],
            title: 'Sample Metrics'
            series: [
            type: 'column',
            axis: 'left',
            highlight: true,
            tips: {
            trackMouse: true,
            width: 140,
            height: 28,
            renderer: function(storeItem, item) {
            this.setTitle(storeItem.get('name') + ': ' + storeItem.get('data') + ' $');
            label: {
            display: 'insideEnd',
            'text-anchor': 'middle',
            field: 'data',
            renderer: Ext.util.Format.numberRenderer('0'),
            orientation: 'vertical',
            color: '#333'
            xField: 'name',
            yField: 'data'

In this configuration we set column as the series type, bind the values of the bars to the bottom axis, set highlight to true so that bars are smoothly highlighted when hovered and bind the xField or category field to the data store name property and the yField as the data1 property of a store element.
