Continued from here.
To finish this, I want to add some effects, and save it as a png file.
To add shadows behind each bar, just add the Shadowed argument to each bar. Example:
DiagramBar #ff0000 X:25 Y:0 W:20 H:200 Label="Apples" Value="1" Shadowed
Adding gradient background
To give the image a gradient background, replace the color argument with a VGrad or HGrad. VGrad does a vertical gradient and HGrad does a horizontal. Example:
The changes I have made is marked with bold font.
//Set image size and background color. Clear 400x300 VGrad:#d0d0d0-#f0f0f0 //Create a white diagram. Diagram #ffffff X:25 Y:40 W:350 H:230 "Some fruit" //Create 5 bars. DiagramBar #ff0000 X:25 Y:0 W:20 H:200 Label="Apples" Value="1" Shadowed DiagramBar #00ff00 X:95 Y:0 W:20 H:50 Label="Pears" Value="2" Shadowed DiagramBar #0000ff X:165 Y:0 W:20 H:150 Label="Oranges" Value="3" Shadowed DiagramBar #ff00ff X:235 Y:0 W:20 H:180 Label="Peaches" Value="4" Shadowed DiagramBar #f2f200 X:305 Y:0 W:20 H:100 Label="Grapes" Value="5" Shadowed
This is the result:
If your pictures didn’t come out as expected, you can check the error log in the View window. This video shows these steps. Also, the png export feature is shown.
