A Horizontal Bar chart showing the popularity of programming languages

A Horizontal Bar chart that's showing the popularity of various computer programming languages. The labels are added manually using the RGraph.text() function.

[No canvas support]

This Horizontal Bar chart does not use the yaxisLabels option but instead has a minimal marginLeft setting and then uses some custom code in the draw event to manually draw some labels. It also uses the labelsAbove option to indicate the percentages for each bar.

The grow() effect is employed to animate the chart.

If the draw event wasn't used and the labels were simply added after the chart had been drawn then they would disappear when the canvas is cleared for the second frame of the animation. And that happens so fast that it would seem like they just aren't being drawn.

The responsive() function doesn't do much - it simply changes the width and height of the canvas tag and changes the CSS float that's applied to the container of the canvas.

This chart has been updated in March 2020 to add tooltips that use formatting and the highlighting color has been updated to a gradient so that the labels on the left-hand side are unobscured.

This goes in the documents header:
<script src="RGraph.common.core.js"></script>
<script src="RGraph.hbar.js"></script>
Put this where you want the chart to show up:
<div style="float: right">
    <canvas id="cvs" width="600" height="450">
        [No canvas support]
This is the code that generates the chart:
