Feature Request: Support "pattern style" for bar chart fills #268
since becoming excited about the capabilities of XlsxWriter I've started using it for creating more and more complex data visualizations in Excel that I could never have done manually. Great work! Thanks for that!
My use case is that my charts contain some "verified data" and some "estimated data". I would like to visualize this by using the "pattern fill" for some of the data series. When I do this manually it looks quite nice.
XlsxWriter allows coloring the columns conveniently, supporting "solid fill" or "gradient fill" styles. Would it be possible to add the "pattern styles" as well?
This seems to be the spec of how such patterns are done:
Thanks for looking into this.
This is not particularly intuitive so you're likely to need to work backwards from an existing file with specification close to hand.
