Represents a series view of the Area type.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Charts


public class AreaSeriesView :


The AreaSeriesView class provides the series view functionality of the area type within a chart control.

The AreaSeriesView class inherits properties and methods from the base AreaSeriesViewBase class which defines common settings of area series views.

Note that a particular view type can be defined for a series via its SeriesBase.View property.

For more information on series views of the area type please see the Area Chart topic.


The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with two series of the AreaSeriesView type, and add this chart to a form at runtime. Before proceeding with this example, create a Windows Forms Application in Visual Studio, and add all required assemblies to the References list of your project.

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

using DevExpress.XtraCharts;
// ...

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    // Create a new chart.
    ChartControl areaChart = new ChartControl();

    // Create two area series.
    Series series1 = new Series("Series 1", ViewType.Area);
    Series series2 = new Series("Series 2", ViewType.Area);

    // Add points to them.
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(1, 15));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(2, 18));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(3, 25));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(4, 33));

    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(1, 10));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(2, 12));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(3, 14));
    series2.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(4, 17));

    // Add both series to the chart.
    areaChart.Series.AddRange(new Series[] { series1, series2 });

    // Set the numerical argument scale types for the series,
    // as it is qualitative, by default.
    series1.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical;
    series2.ArgumentScaleType = ScaleType.Numerical;

    // Access the view-type-specific options of the series.
    ((AreaSeriesView)series1.View).Transparency = 80;

    // Access the type-specific options of the diagram.
    ((XYDiagram)areaChart.Diagram).EnableAxisXZooming = true;

    // Hide the legend (optional).
    areaChart.Legend.Visible = false;

    // Add the chart to the form.
    areaChart.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
