I'm looking for a straight forward way to highlight a single bar in a
BarChart, i.e. a BarChart of country GDP where you highlight your country.
There's a great animation QA with a highlighted bar but I couldn't figure out how to simplify that down to a simple static barchart.
I think it should be via a
ColorFunction rule with a user defined function but I'm not getting it, i.e.
data = Range*2; f[x_] := If[x == 1, Hue[0.5], Hue[0.2]] BarChart[data, ColorFunction -> f, ChartLabels -> Characters["abcdef"]]
does something similar to what I want but I can't figure out how to change which bar gets highlighted (or why it's that one - for any other number but
1 I lose the highlighted bar).
I would have thought I could specify the
ChartLabel for the data point but I haven't figured out that either.
