How do I create floating bars

"Floating" bars can be created using two different mechanisms. If you just need a simple floating bar chart, you can use a box plot of two values per column. Enter the top and bottom ranges for your bars in each column, and then create a box plot. To get rid of the median line, change the Edge color (under Fills) to (None).

If you need to create grouped, floating bar charts, you will need to use a trick which can be used in SigmaPlot in many instances. This is to create a masking plot.

Note: Neither of these methods works well with fill patterns.

1. Create a grouped bar chart, using the upper values of the bars.

2. Create a second bar chart for the same graph (click the graph, then click the grouped bar chart icon from the Graph toolbar), this time, using the lower values of the bars.

3. Now, change the fill color of the 2nd bar plot to white (or whatever the color of the graph background is). Also, set the edge color of both plots to be (None).

4. If you change the width setting of one plot, you need to make sure you change the setting of the other to match.

For other features displayed by this graph, see create ticks between bars and hide a single legend entry.
