The DevExpress Chart provides a variety of 2D series types that allow you to display data as a basic chart or a combination of various series views.
The following groups separate all available series:
This group contains the basic chart series that render data as a collection of points.
|DXAreaSeries||Displays data as filled areas on a chart, with each data point as a peak or hollow in the area.|
|DXStackedAreaSeries||Displays data as filled areas on a chart, with each data point’s value is aggregated with the underlying data points’ values.|
|DXFullStackedAreaSeries||Displays data as filled areas on a chart, with each data point’s value is aggregated with the underlying data points’ values and normalized to fill the plot area’s height.|
|DXStepAreaSeries||Displays data as filled areas on a chart, with data points connected by horizontal and vertical lines.|
|DXBarSeries||Displays data as individual bars, grouped by arguments, whose values determine each bar’s height.|
|DXStackedBarSeries||Displays data as individual bars, stacked by arguments, whose values determine each bar’s height.|
|DXFullStackedBarSeries||Displays data as individual bars, stacked by arguments, in such way that stacked bars fill plot area’s height.|
|DXSideBySideStackedBarSeries||This series combines the advantages of both the Stacked Bar and Bar series, allowing you to stack different bars, and combine stacks into groups shown side-by-side across the same argument.|
|DXSideBySideFullStackedBarSeries||Displays data as individual bars, stacked by groups and grouped by arguments, and normalized to fill plot area height.|
|DXPointSeries||Displays data as a collection of scatter points.|
|DXLineSeries||Displays data as points connected by a line.|
|DXStepLineSeries||Displays data as points connected by horizontal and vertical lines.|
|DXScatterLineSeries||This series displays data points connected in the same order as they were indexed. That is, in contrast to the Line series, that sorts data points by the argument.|
Three Dimensional Series
This group contains series that displays additional data using a specific form.
|DXBubbleSeries||Allows you to visualize three-dimensional data. A position of a bubble visualize two dimensions, and a bubble’s size visualizes the third dimension.|
Financial (or Low-High-Open-Close) series are useful for the stock price, bond price, and commodities behavior analysis. The below table lists all the available financial series.
|DXStockSeries||The vertical line’s top and bottom values, shown at each point, represent the High and Low prices, and the left and right tick marks represent the Open and Close prices, respectively.|
|DXCandleStickSeries||Each point consists of a rectangle (the Open and Close values specify the body) and a vertical line (the Low and High values specify the tail). The body is green if the stock closes higher than its opening price. Otherwise, the body is red.|
