# Orientation

The orientation sets the general direction of the chart.

# Reverse Orientation

Each chart has an initial orientation. Column charts display data from bottom to top. Bar charts display data from left to right (in LTR languages) and from right to left in RTL languages.

You can reverse the initial orientation using the .reverse class.

It does not matter what's your language writing direction, left-to-right (LTR), right-to-left (RTL) or top-to-bottom (TTB), the .reverse class will reverse the initial orientation.
