There is two type of data array for jqBarGraph. First is for simple bar graph type, and second is for multi and stacked bar type.

For simple bar graph type data for one bar should look like this: [value, label, color]. Label and color are optional. This is example for simple bar graph type:

arrayOfData = new Array(

For multi and stacked type of graph you should send data in next format: [[value1, value2, value3, ..., valueN], label]. It should look similar to this:

arrayOfData = new Array(

After you set your data array you just need to say in which div you want graph to be created. All you have to do is:

$('#divForGraph').jqBarGraph({ data: arrayOfData });

The code above is enough to display your data as bar graph. But if you want to made your graph prettier you can achieve that with next set of parameters:

data: arrayOfData, // array of data for your graph
title: false, // title of your graph, accept HTML
barSpace: 10, // this is default space between bars in pixels
width: 400, // default width of your graph
height: 200, //default height of your graph
color: '#000000', // if you don't send colors for your data this will be default bars color
colors: false, // array of colors that will be used for your bars and legends
lbl: '', // if there is no label in your array
sort: false, // sort your data before displaying graph, you can sort as 'asc' or 'desc'
position: 'bottom', // position of your bars, can be 'bottom' or 'top'. 'top' doesn't work for multi type
prefix: '', // text that will be shown before every label
postfix: '', // text that will be shown after every label
animate: true, // if you don't need animated appearance change to false
speed: 2, // speed of animation in seconds
legendWidth: 100, // width of your legend box
legend: false, // if you want legend change to true
legends: false, // array for legend. for simple graph type legend will be extracted from labels if you don't set this
type: false, // for multi array data default graph type is stacked, you can change to 'multi' for multi bar type
showValues: true, // you can use this for multi and stacked type and it will show values of every bar part
showValuesColor: '#fff' // color of font for values


Simple bar graphs

sort ascending sort descending show legend set colors colors and legends top position clear
arrayOfData = new Array(

   data: arrayOfData

Multi and stacked bar graphs

multi bar type show legend sort descending prefix and postfix hide values no animation clear
arrayOfDataMulti = new Array(

   data: arrayOfDataMulti,
   colors: ['#242424','#437346','#97D95C']
