Formatting Values Using Data Bars

The Data Bars conditional format allows you to visualize values using bars.

The image below shows the grid column whose Profit cells contain data bars corresponding to cell values.

This topic consists of the following sections:

Expanded Adding Rules in Code

Create the DataBarFormatCondition class instance and specify the following settings to create a conditional format in code:

The following code sample illustrates how to define a conditional format in markup:

The code sample below illustrates how to define the same conditional format in code-behind:

Expanded Adding Rules Using Conditional Formatting Menu

  1. Select the Data Bars item in the Conditional Formatting Menu.
  2. Choose the required data bar in the invoked sub menu. The conditional formatting menu allows you to use only predefined Data Bars formats stored within the TableView.PredefinedDataBarFormats (or TreeListView.PredefinedDataBarFormats) collection.

Expanded Adding Rules Using Conditional Formatting Rules Manager

  1. Click the New Rule... in the Conditional Formatting Rules Manager.
  2. Select the Format all cells based on their values rule in the invoked New Formatting Rule dialog.
  3. Select the Data Bar format style.
  4. Specify the Type and Value fields. These options determine the conditional values on which formatting of cells/rows is based.

    • To format cells/rows based on single column values, choose the Filed Name value in the Type field, and choose the required column field name in the Value field.
    • To specify a complex custom expression that returns a value based on several parameters (for example, several columns in a row), choose the Expression value in the Type field, and determine the required expression in the Value field by using the Custom Condition Editor.
  5. Specify the Min Value and Max Value fields to determine the range of values used in formatting. These fields are optional. The range is calculated automatically based on cell values' maximum and minimum values by default.
  6. Specify the Positive Bar Appearance and Negative Bar Appearance fields to define the visual appearance of the applied rule.
