BarChart#

Qualified name: manim.mobject.graphing.probability.BarChart

class BarChart(values, bar_names=None, y_range=None, x_length=None, y_length=None, bar_colors=['#003f5c', '#58508d', '#bc5090', '#ff6361', '#ffa600'], bar_width=0.6, bar_fill_opacity=0.7, bar_stroke_width=3, **kwargs)[source]#

Bases: Axes

Creates a bar chart. Inherits from Axes, so it shares its methods and attributes. Each axis inherits from NumberLine, so pass in x_axis_config/y_axis_config to control their attributes.

Parameters
  • values (MutableSequence[float]) – A sequence of values that determines the height of each bar. Accepts negative values.

  • bar_names (Sequence[str] | None) – A sequence of names for each bar. Does not have to match the length of values.

  • y_range (Sequence[float] | None) – The y_axis range of values. If None, the range will be calculated based on the min/max of values and the step will be calculated based on y_length.

  • x_length (float | None) – The length of the x-axis. If None, it is automatically calculated based on the number of values and the width of the screen.

  • y_length (float | None) – The length of the y-axis.

  • bar_colors (Iterable[str]) – The color for the bars. Accepts a sequence of colors (can contain just one item). If the length of``bar_colors`` does not match that of values, intermediate colors will be automatically determined.

  • bar_width (float) – The length of a bar. Must be between 0 and 1.

  • bar_fill_opacity (float) – The fill opacity of the bars.

  • bar_stroke_width (float) – The stroke width of the bars.

class BarChartExample(Scene):
    def construct(self):
        chart = BarChart(
            values=[-5, 40, -10, 20, -3],
            bar_names=["one", "two", "three", "four", "five"],
            y_range=[-20, 50, 10],
            y_length=6,
            x_length=10,
            x_axis_config={"font_size": 36},
        )

        c_bar_lbls = chart.get_bar_labels(font_size=48)

        self.add(chart, c_bar_lbls)

Methods

change_bar_values

Updates the height of the bars of the chart.

get_bar_labels

Annotates each bar with its corresponding value.

Attributes

animate

Used to animate the application of any method of self.

animation_overrides

color

depth

The depth of the mobject.

fill_color

If there are multiple colors (for gradient) this returns the first one

height

The height of the mobject.

sheen_factor

stroke_color

width

The width of the mobject.

change_bar_values(values, update_colors=True)[source]#

Updates the height of the bars of the chart.

Parameters
  • values (Iterable[float]) – The values that will be used to update the height of the bars. Does not have to match the number of bars.

  • update_colors (bool) – Whether to re-initalize the colors of the bars based on self.bar_colors.

from manim import *

class ChangeBarValuesExample(Scene):
    def construct(self):
        values=[-10, -8, -6, -4, -2, 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10]

        chart = BarChart(
            values,
            y_range=[-10, 10, 2],
            y_axis_config={"font_size": 24},
        )
        self.add(chart)

        chart.change_bar_values(list(reversed(values)))
        self.add(chart.get_bar_labels(font_size=24))
get_bar_labels(color=None, font_size=24, buff=0.25, label_constructor=<class 'manim.mobject.text.tex_mobject.Tex'>)[source]#

Annotates each bar with its corresponding value. Use self.bar_labels to access the labels after creation.

Parameters
  • color (Color | None) – The color of each label. By default None and is based on the parent’s bar color.

  • font_size (float) – The font size of each label.

  • buff (float) – The distance from each label to its bar. By default 0.4.

  • label_constructor (type[VMobject]) – The Mobject class to construct the labels, by default Tex.
