Difference bar chart

Hi plotly community!

Does anyone know if it’s possible / how to achieve the same kind of thing area chart does with fill set to “tonext” which essentially draws an area between two lines, but with bar charts?

Thank you

Could you elaborate on what behaviour you’d expect? There is barmode which may be what you are looking for, but we are discussing the possibility of having bars use a relative base as well here.

I should’ve searched this in the first place. This http://www.highcharts.com/demo/columnrange is what I’m looking for. A chart that draws a bar or a column between two values.

Maybe use the same method here:

But with a vertical chart. Essentially a stacked chart with invisible bars pushing out to the values you’d want the bar to start at. Requires a little math but seems feasible.
