NGX Charts Grouped Vertical Bar Chart

NGX Charts Grouped Vertical Bar Chart

Prior to delving into the utilization of NGX bar charts, it’s imperative to confirm the installation and integration of NGX Charts with Angular. In a previous article, I thoroughly outlined the process of initiating NGX Charts, providing comprehensive guidance for newcomers. I strongly advise consulting that resource before embarking on the implementation of NGX bar charts. Doing so will furnish you with essential knowledge on establishing and maximizing NGX Charts within Angular projects, establishing a robust groundwork for seamlessly integrating specific chart types such as NGX bar charts.
