Currently, I were to implement a bar chart, to show dividend received from year 2000 till 2013 (as an example)
I was still puzzling, on whether I should go for horizontal bar chart or vertical bar chart?
My first approach is trying with vertical bar chart.
The year range (2000 till 2013) cannot fit into small screen width entirely. I need to have a view pager, so that user can swipe to view different year range. However, there is a shortcoming. User can only view 3 years data at one time.
I was thinking, if I can implement it as horizontal bar chart, user can view more years data at one time. But, is there any other shortcoming for horizontal bar chart?
I was wondering, is there any guideline or reading I can refer to, so that I know which type of bar chart is more suitable for my case?
