Stacked Bar Chart

Stacked Bar Chart

For this week we are building a stacked bar chart on https://Charts.PowerBI.Tips. While you can build this type of chart within Power BI Desktop this video is more of an example showing how you can build a similar custom visual chart. There are two areas that i’d like to point out.

  1. When working with a chart you can add a Legend to a shape object (2:40)
  2. Adding a grand total requires an additional Glyph (3:14)

While these two tips are pretty simple it really does help you when building more complex custom visuals.

    • You would need to use a Group By feature. This would allow you to group the items and run a calculation on them. You might also need to change the default aggregation method in Charts.PowerBI.tips from average to sum.
