### Fields

Name | Description |
---|---|

Area | A type of presentation graphic that emphasizes a change in values by filling in the portion of the graph beneath the line connecting various data points. |

Bar | A bar chart, also known as a bar graph, is a chart with rectangular bars of lengths proportional to that value that they represent. Bar charts are used for comparing two or more values. |

BoxAndWhisker | A box and whisker chart type is a convenient way of graphically depicting groups of numerical data through their five-number summaries (the smallest observation, lower quartile (Q1), median (Q2), upper quartile (Q3), and largest observation). A box and whisker chart may also indicate which observations, if any, might be considered outliers. |

Bubble | A bubble chart draws bubbles for each point in a series. The chart expects three values per bubble: the domain (commonly the X-axis) value and, the range (commonly the y-axis) value. |

Candle | A candlestick chart is a style of bar-chart used primarily to describe price movements of an equity over time. It is a combination of a line-chart and a bar-chart, in that each bar represents the range of price movement over a given time interval. It is most often used in technical analysis of equity and currency price patterns. It appears superficially similar to error bars, but are unrelated. |

Column | Compares values across categories. The series values are displayed as individual columns, grouped by category. The height of each column is determined by the series value. |

Custom | Custom Chart type |

Doughnut | A doughnut chart displays value data as percentages of the whole. Categories are represented by individual slices. Doughnut charts are typically used to show percentages. Doughnut charts are functionally identical to pie charts. |

FastBar | When performance is critical, the FastBar chart type is a good alternative to the Bar chart. FastBar chart significantly reduce the drawing time of a series that contains a very large number of data points. |

FastColumn | FastColumn Chart is a Column Chart, Which Comes under FastChartType |

FastHiLoOpenClose | FastHiLoOpenClose Chart is a Fast Chart Type. |

FastLine | When performance is critical, the FastLine chart type is a good alternative to the Line chart. FastLine chart significantly reduce the drawing time of a series that contains a very large number of data points. |

FastScatter | FastScatter Chart is a Scatter Chart, Which Comes under FastChartType |

FastSpline | When performance is critical, the FastSpline chart type is a good alternative to the Spline chart. FastSpline chart significantly reduce the drawing time of a series that contains a very large number of data points. |

FastStackingColumn | FastStackingColumn Chart is a Column Chart, Which Comes under FastChartType |

Funnel | The Funnel Chart type displays data that equals 100% when totalled. This type of chart is a single series chart representing the data as portions of 100%, and this chart does not use any axes. |

Gantt | A Gantt chart is a type of bar chart that shows a project schedule. Gantt charts show the start and finish dates of the terminal elements and summary elements of a project. Terminal elements and summary elements comprise the work breakdown structure of the project. Gantt charts can be used to show current schedule status using percent-complete shadings and a vertical "TODAY" line (also called "TIME NOW" or "DATA DATE"). It is an instrument or tool of the Project management invented by the engineer Henry L. Gannt. |

HiLo | HiLo chart is a sophisticated chart type, that finds its place in stock analysis. |

HiLoArea | Represents the HiLoArea chart type |

HiLoOpenClose | HiLo OpenClose Chart is a HiLo chart with four Y values for each point. |

Histogram | Represents a graphical display of tabulated frequencies. A histogram is the graphical version of a table that shows what proportion of cases fall into each of several or many specified categories. The histogram differs from a bar chart in that it is the area of the bar that denotes the value, not the height, a crucial distinction when the categories are not of uniform width. The categories are usually specified as non-overlapping intervals of some variable. The categories (bars) must be adjacent. |

Kagi | A Kagi chart is created with a series of vertical lines connected by short horizontal lines. The thickness and direction of the lines is based on the price of the underlying stock or asset |

Line | A style of chart that is created by connecting a series of data points together with a line. This is the most basic type of chart used in finance and it is generally created by connecting a series of past prices together with a line. |

Pie | A pie chart (or a circle graph) is a circular chart divided into sectors, illustrating relative magnitudes or frequencies or percents. In a pie chart, the arc length of each sector (and consequently its central angle and area), is proportional to the quantity it represents. Together, the sectors create a full disk. It is named for its resemblance to a pie which has been sliced. |

PointAndFigure | A point and figure chart is used for technical analysis of securities. Unlike most other investment charts, point and figure charts do not present a linear representation of time. Instead, they show trends in price. The aim of point and figure charting is to filter out the "noise" (unimportant price movement) and focus on the main direction of the price trend. Point and figure charts are usually used for longer term price movements, but may be used to day trade by trying to identify the key points of "supply and demand." Point and figure charts are close relatives to ThreeLineBreak , Renko and Kagi charts which all do not have a fixed time frame. |

Polar | Polar chart is used to display chart data points, connected with a line, in a polar co-ordinate system. |

Pyramid | Pyramid charts are another type of accumulation chart which has a triangular upper surface that converge at one point. Similar to a Funnel chart, the height of a segment is proportional to the Y value of the corresponding point. |

Radar | A radar chart is two-dimensional chart of three or more quantitative variables represented on axes starting from the same point. The relative position and angle of the axes is uninformative. Radar charts are usually used to compare performance of different entities on a same set of axes. |

RangeArea | Range Area Chart is a variation of Area Chart type that lets you plot bands of data in a chart, like Bollinger bands, weather patterns, etc. Each point in the chart is specified by 2 Y values � the lower and higher end of the band. |

RangeColumn | Columns connecting minimum and maximum series points with the same respective X. |

Renko | A renko chart is constructed by placing a brick in the next column once the price surpasses the top or bottom of the previous brick by a pre-defined amount. Lighter bricks are used when the direction of the trend is up, while darker bricks are used when the trend is down. This type of chart is very effective for traders to identify key support/resistance levels. Transaction signals are generated when the direction of the trend changes and the bricks alternate colors. |

RotatedSpline | Rotated Spline chart defines chart series points as interconnected rotated smooth curves. |

Scatter | A scatter type contains one or more scatter plots each of which use Cartesian coordinates to display values for two series values for a set of data. The data is displayed as a collection of points, each having the value of one variable determining the position on the horizontal axis and the value of the other variable determining the position on the vertical axis. |

Spline | A spline chart is simply a line chart that plots a fitted curve through each data point in a series. |

SplineArea | Spline Chart is an Area chart in which each area is given a color to emphasize the relationships between the pieces of charted information. |

StackingArea | StackingArea is an area chart with Y values stacked over one another, in series order. |

StackingArea100 | StackingArea100 is an area chart with Y values stacked over one another for 100%, in series order. |

StackingBar | A stacked bar chart displays the relationship of individual items to the whole, comparing the contributions of each value to a total across categories. The series values are stacked in a single column for each category. The height of each column is determined by the total of all series values for the category. |

StackingBar100 | A bar chart where multiple series are stacked horizontally to fit 100% of the chart area. If there is only one series in chart, all the bars will fit to 100% of area. |

StackingColumn | A stacked column chart displays the relationship of individual items to the whole, comparing the contributions of each value to a total across categories. The series values are stacked in a single column for each category. The height of each column is determined by the total of all series values for the category. |

StackingColumn100 | A column chart where multiple series are stacked vertically to fit 100% of the chart area. If there is only one series in your chart, all the column bars will fit to 100% of the chart area. |

StackingLine | StackingLine is a line chart with Y values stacked over one another, in series order. |

StackingLine100 | StackingLine100 is a line chart with Y values stacked over one another for 100%, in series order. |

StackingSpline | StackingSpline is a spline chart with Y values stacked over one another, in series order. |

StackingSpline100 | StackingSpline100 is a spline chart with Y values stacked over one another for 100%, in series order. |

StackingSplineArea | StackingSplineArea is a splinearea chart with Y values stacked over one another, in series order. |

StackingSplineArea100 | StackingSplineArea100 is a splinearea chart with Y values stacked over one another for 100%, in series order. |

StepArea | The StepArea chart consists of pairs of values (plotted as points) on a line for each series in the given dataset. Each pair of values consists of one date (value) and one numeric value. This chart will have one date\time (value) based axis (the domain axis) and one numeric axis (the range axis). Each line is drawn at a 90 degree angle from point to point. Each line will fill the from the line to the bottom of the plot with its series color. |

StepLine | Step Line charts are line charts, with values drawn continuously, step by step without any gaps between them. |

Surface3D | 3D Surface Chart Type |

ThreeLineBreak | ThreeLineBreak displays a series of vertical boxes that are based on changes in prices. It depicts rising and falling lines of varying heights. |

Tornado | Tornado chart is a bar chart, which shows the variability of an outcome, as the result of several factors. This variability is displayed using relative lengths of bars across a range. |
