How to: Create a 2D Stacked Area Chart

  • 2 minutes to read

The following example demonstrates how to create a 2D Stacked Area chart. To do this, it is necessary to assign the ChartControl.Diagram property to XYDiagram2D, and then add two AreaStackedSeries2D objects with points to the diagram's Diagram.Series collection.

Also, this example shows how to add a legend (showing series names) to a chart.
