Area Chart

Expanded Short Description

The Area Chart is represented by the Area3DSeriesView object, which belongs to Area Series Views. This view displays series as filled areas on a diagram, with each data point displayed as a peak or hollow in the area. This view is useful when you need to show trends for several series on the same diagram, and also show the relationship of the parts to the whole.

An Area chart is shown in the image below.

Expanded Chart Type Characteristics

The table below lists the main characteristics of this chart type.

For information on which chart types can be combined with the Area Chart, refer to the Combining Different Series Views document.

Expanded Example

The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with a series of the Area3DSeriesView type, set its general properties, and add this chart to a form at runtime. Before proceeding with this example, first create a Windows Forms Application in Visual Studio, and include all necessary assemblies to the References list of your project.

Then, add the following code to the Form.Load event handler.
