Stacked Line Chart

  • 2 minutes to read

Short Description

A StackedLineSeriesView object is used to display the Stacked Line chart. This chart type belongs to the Point, Line and Spline Series View type. This view displays all points from different series. Series are stacked if they correspond to the same argument. This chart type allows you to compare the values of different series and view aggregate values of specific arguments.

A Stacked Line chart is shown in the image below. Note that this chart type is based upon the XYDiagram, so it can be rotated to show lines either vertically or horizontally.



A Stacked Line chart can display series that contain data points with positive or negative values. A series with positive values, however, is stacked only with other series that contain positive values; and a series with negative values is stacked with series that contain negative values.

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