Stacked Step Area Chart

The Stacked Step Area series can be plotted using the StackedStepAreaSeriesView class, which belongs to the Area Series Views view group. These series are similar to Stacked Area series, but step series do not use the shortest distance to connect two data points. Instead, this chart type uses vertical and horizontal lines to connect the data points in a series forming a step-like progression.

A Stacked Step Area chart is shown in the image below. Note that this chart type is based upon the XYDiagram, so it can be rotated to show areas vertically and horizontally.

Note

If two stacked areas contain data points for different arguments, points for missing arguments are not treated as zero-value points.

A Stacked Area chart can display series containing data points with positive and negative values. However, a series with positive values is stacked only with other series containing positive values; and a series with negative values is stacked with other series containing negative values.

Note that if a series contains data points with positive and negative values, it is treated as a series with positive values, while all its negative values are treated as zeros.
