The Blur Style Type is the simplest of all style types, which basically helps to blur any chart object for visual effect.

Note: In JavaScript charts, customized blur style type is not available.

It has the following parameters:

Properties Description
blurX The amount to blur horizontally. Valid values are from 0 to 255. The default value is 4. Values that are a power of 2 (such as 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32) are optimized to render quicker than other values.
blurY The amount to blur vertically.
quality The number of times to apply the filter. The default value is 1, which is equivalent to low quality. A value of 2 is medium quality, and a value of 3 is high quality and approximates a Gaussian blur.
Controlling blur amount

You can configure the amount of blur as under:

<style name='MyFirstBlur' type='Blur' blurX='6' blurY='6' />
 "definition":[{ "name":"MyFirstBlur", "type":"Blur" "blurx":"6", "blury":"6" }]
Property Format Example
blurX blurX='value' blurX='6'
blurY blurY='value' blurY='6'

When applied to columns, it gives the following effect:

Controlling blur quality

To change the quality of the blur, use the quality attribute as under:

<style name='MyFirstBlur' type='Blur' blurX='6' blurY='6' quality='3' />
 "definition":[{ "name":"MyFirstBlur", "type":"Blur" "blurx":"6", "blury":"6" "quality":"3" }]
Property Format Example
quality quality='value' quality='3'

It gives the following output:
