Excel::Writer::XLSX::CUser:Contributed PeExcel::Writer::XLSX::Chart::Column(3)

NAME
       Column -	A class	for writing Excel Column charts.

SYNOPSIS
       To create a simple Excel	file with a Column chart using
       Excel::Writer::XLSX:

	   #!/usr/bin/perl

	   use strict;
	   use warnings;
	   use Excel::Writer::XLSX;

	   my $workbook	 = Excel::Writer::XLSX->new( 'chart.xlsx' );
	   my $worksheet = $workbook->add_worksheet();

	   my $chart	 = $workbook->add_chart( type => 'column' );

	   # Configure the chart.
	   $chart->add_series(
	       categories => '=Sheet1!$A$2:$A$7',
	       values	  => '=Sheet1!$B$2:$B$7',
	   );

	   # Add the worksheet data the	chart refers to.
	   my $data = [
	       [ 'Category', 2,	3, 4, 5, 6, 7 ],
	       [ 'Value',    1,	4, 5, 2, 1, 5 ],
	   ];

	   $worksheet->write( 'A1', $data );

	   __END__

DESCRIPTION
       This module implements Column charts for	Excel::Writer::XLSX. The chart
       object is created via the Workbook "add_chart()"	method:

	   my $chart = $workbook->add_chart( type => 'column' );

       Once the	object is created it can be configured via the following
       methods that are	common to all chart classes:

	   $chart->add_series();
	   $chart->set_x_axis();
	   $chart->set_y_axis();
	   $chart->set_title();

       These methods are explained in detail in	Excel::Writer::XLSX::Chart.
       Class specific methods or settings, if any, are explained below.

Column Chart Subtypes
       The "Column" chart module also supports the following sub-types:

	   stacked
	   percent_stacked

       These can be specified at creation time via the "add_chart()" Worksheet
       method:

	   my $chart = $workbook->add_chart( type => 'column', subtype => 'stacked' );

EXAMPLE
       Here is a complete example that demonstrates most of the	available
       features	when creating a	chart.

	   #!/usr/bin/perl

	   use strict;
	   use warnings;
	   use Excel::Writer::XLSX;

	   my $workbook	 = Excel::Writer::XLSX->new( 'chart_column.xlsx' );
	   my $worksheet = $workbook->add_worksheet();
	   my $bold	 = $workbook->add_format( bold => 1 );

	   # Add the worksheet data that the charts will refer to.
	   my $headings	= [ 'Number', 'Batch 1', 'Batch	2' ];
	   my $data = [
	       [ 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,	7 ],
	       [ 10, 40, 50, 20, 10, 50	],
	       [ 30, 60, 70, 50, 40, 30	],

	   ];

	   $worksheet->write( 'A1', $headings, $bold );
	   $worksheet->write( 'A2', $data );

	   # Create a new chart	object.	In this	case an	embedded chart.
	   my $chart = $workbook->add_chart( type => 'column', embedded	=> 1 );

	   # Configure the first series.
	   $chart->add_series(
	       name	  => '=Sheet1!$B$1',
	       categories => '=Sheet1!$A$2:$A$7',
	       values	  => '=Sheet1!$B$2:$B$7',
	   );

	   # Configure second series. Note alternative use of array ref	to define
	   # ranges: [ $sheetname, $row_start, $row_end, $col_start, $col_end ].
	   $chart->add_series(
	       name	  => '=Sheet1!$C$1',
	       categories => [ 'Sheet1', 1, 6, 0, 0 ],
	       values	  => [ 'Sheet1', 1, 6, 2, 2 ],
	   );

	   # Add a chart title and some	axis labels.
	   $chart->set_title ( name => 'Results	of sample analysis' );
	   $chart->set_x_axis( name => 'Test number' );
	   $chart->set_y_axis( name => 'Sample length (mm)' );

	   # Set an Excel chart	style. Blue colors with	white outline and shadow.
	   $chart->set_style( 11 );

	   # Insert the	chart into the worksheet (with an offset).
	   $worksheet->insert_chart( 'D2', $chart, 25, 10 );

	   __END__
