17 Aug 20219 minutes to read

Error Bar

Error bars are graphical representations of the variability of data that are used on graphs to indicate the error or uncertainty in a reported measurement. To render the error bar for the series, set Visible property to true in ChartErrorBarSettings.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts

<SfChart>
    <ChartPrimaryXAxis ValueType="Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts.ValueType.Category">
    </ChartPrimaryXAxis>
	
    <ChartSeriesCollection>
        <ChartSeries DataSource="@SalesReports" XName="X" YName="Y" Type="ChartSeriesType.Line">
            <ChartErrorBarSettings Visible="true">
            </ChartErrorBarSettings>
        </ChartSeries>
    </ChartSeriesCollection>
</SfChart>

@code{
    public class ChartData
    {
        public double X { get; set; }
        public double Y {get; set; }
    }

    public List<ChartData> SalesReports = new List<ChartData>
	{
        new ChartData{ X= 2005, Y= 28 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2006, Y= 25 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2007, Y= 26 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2008, Y= 27 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2009, Y= 32 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2010, Y= 35 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2011, Y= 30 }
    };
}

Error Bar

Error Bar Type

To change the error bar rendering type, set Type property in ChartErrorBarSettings and to change the error bar line length, use VerticalError property in ChartErrorBarSettings.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts

<SfChart>
    <ChartPrimaryXAxis ValueType="Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts.ValueType.Category">
    </ChartPrimaryXAxis>
	
    <ChartSeriesCollection>
        <ChartSeries DataSource="@SalesReports" XName="X" YName="Y" Type="ChartSeriesType.Line">
            <ChartErrorBarSettings Visible="true" Type="ErrorBarType.Percentage" VerticalError="4">
            </ChartErrorBarSettings>
        </ChartSeries>
    </ChartSeriesCollection>
</SfChart>

@code{
    public class ChartData
    {
        public double X { get; set; }
        public double Y { get; set; }
    }

    public List<ChartData> SalesReports = new List<ChartData>
	{
        new ChartData{ X= 2005, Y= 28 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2006, Y= 25 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2007, Y= 26 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2008, Y= 27 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2009, Y= 32 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2010, Y= 35 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2011, Y= 30 }
    };
}

Customizing Error Bar Type

To customize the error bar type, specify the Type property to Custom and then change the HorizontalNegativeError and HorizontalPositiveError properties in ChartErrorBarSettings.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts

<SfChart>
    <ChartPrimaryXAxis ValueType="Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts.ValueType.Category">
    </ChartPrimaryXAxis>

    <ChartSeriesCollection>
        <ChartSeries DataSource="@SalesReports" XName="X" YName="Y" Type="ChartSeriesType.Line">
            <ChartErrorBarSettings Visible="true" Type="ErrorBarType.Custom" Mode="ErrorBarMode.Both"
                                   VerticalPositiveError="2" HorizontalPositiveError="1" VerticalNegativeError="2" HorizontalNegativeError="1">
            </ChartErrorBarSettings>
        </ChartSeries>
    </ChartSeriesCollection>
</SfChart>

@code{
    public class ChartData
    {
        public double X { get; set; }
        public double Y { get; set; }
    }

    public List<ChartData> SalesReports = new List<ChartData>
	{
        new ChartData{ X= 2005, Y= 28 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2006, Y= 25 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2007, Y= 26 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2008, Y= 27 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2009, Y= 32 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2010, Y= 35 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2011, Y= 30 }
    };
}

Customizing Error Bar

Error Bar Mode

Error bar mode is used to define whether the error bar line should be drawn horizontally, vertically, or on both sides. To change the error bar mode, use Mode property in ChartErrorBarSettings.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts

<SfChart>
    <ChartPrimaryXAxis ValueType="Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts.ValueType.Category">
    </ChartPrimaryXAxis>
	
    <ChartSeriesCollection>
        <ChartSeries DataSource="@SalesReports" XName="X" YName="Y" Type="ChartSeriesType.Line">
            <ChartErrorBarSettings Visible="true" Mode="ErrorBarMode.Horizontal">
            </ChartErrorBarSettings>
        </ChartSeries>
    </ChartSeriesCollection>
</SfChart>

@code{
    public class ChartData
    {
        public double X { get; set; }
        public double Y { get; set; }
    }

    public List<ChartData> SalesReports = new List<ChartData>
	{
        new ChartData{ X= 2005, Y= 28 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2006, Y= 25 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2007, Y= 26 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2008, Y= 27 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2009, Y= 32 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2010, Y= 35 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2011, Y= 30 }
    };
}

Error Bar Direction

To change the error bar direction to plus, minus, or both sides, use Direction property in ChartErrorBarSettings.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts

<SfChart>
    <ChartPrimaryXAxis ValueType="Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts.ValueType.Category">
    </ChartPrimaryXAxis>
	
    <ChartSeriesCollection>
        <ChartSeries DataSource="@SalesReports" XName="X" YName="Y" Type="ChartSeriesType.Line">
            <ChartErrorBarSettings Visible="true" Mode="ErrorBarMode.Both" Direction="ErrorBarDirection.Minus">
            </ChartErrorBarSettings>
        </ChartSeries>
    </ChartSeriesCollection>
</SfChart>

@code{
    public class ChartData
    {
        public double X { get; set; }
        public double Y { get; set; }
    }

    public List<ChartData> SalesReports = new List<ChartData>
	{
        new ChartData{ X= 2005, Y= 28 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2006, Y= 25 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2007, Y= 26 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2008, Y= 27 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2009, Y= 32 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2010, Y= 35 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2011, Y= 30 }
    };
}

Customizing Error Bar Cap

To customize the error bar cap Length, Width and Color properties in ChartErrorBarCapSettings.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts

<SfChart>
    <ChartPrimaryXAxis ValueType="Syncfusion.Blazor.Charts.ValueType.Category">
    </ChartPrimaryXAxis>
	
    <ChartSeriesCollection>
        <ChartSeries DataSource="@SalesReports" XName="X" YName="Y" Type="ChartSeriesType.Line">
            <ChartErrorBarSettings Visible="true">
                <ChartErrorBarCapSettings Length="10" Width="10" Color="#0000ff"></ChartErrorBarCapSettings>
            </ChartErrorBarSettings>
        </ChartSeries>
    </ChartSeriesCollection>
</SfChart>

@code{
    public class ChartData
    {
        public double X { get; set; }
        public double Y { get; set; }
    }

    public List<ChartData> SalesReports = new List<ChartData>
	{
        new ChartData{ X= 2005, Y= 28 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2006, Y= 25 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2007, Y= 26 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2008, Y= 27 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2009, Y= 32 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2010, Y= 35 },
        new ChartData{ X= 2011, Y= 30 }
    };
}
