Full-Stacked Step Area Chart

  • 2 minutes to read

The Full-Stacked Step Area (100% Stacked Step Area Chart) series can be plotted using the FullStackedStepAreaSeriesView class, which belongs to the Area Series Views view group. These series are similar to Full-Stacked Area Chart 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 Full-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.



A Full-Stacked Step 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 both positive and negative values, it is treated as a series with positive values, while all its negative values are treated as zeros.
