deprecated class %ZEN.SVGComponent.barChart extends %ZEN.SVGComponent.chart

This is an SVG chart component that displays a bar chart.
This chart displays one or more data series as rectangular bars whose size is proportional to the data value.
If there are multiple data series, the bars are plotted either side-by-side or stacked, as specified by the chartStacked property.
You can view data as a set of horizontal columns by setting the chartPivot property.
Note: the plotToEdge property is always treated as false for bar charts.
