Area Series

Area series visualize data as an area filled with a color. This area is limited on top by a broken, smooth, or step-like line, which corresponds to the Area, Spline Area, and Step Area series types.

Area series also include stacked series types: Stacked Area and Stacked Spline Area. In such series, the value of each next point is counted off from the previous point with the same argument. As a result, series are put in a stack. Very similar to stacked series are full-stacked series - Full-Stacked Area and Full-Stacked Spline Area. In these series, the sum of all point values by a given argument is considered 100%, and each individual point value is recalculated to be a share of these 100%.

To specify one or another series type, assign its name to the series[].type option. You can configure:

  • Each series individually using the series array;
  • All series in the Chart using the commonSeriesSettings object;
  • All series of a specific type using objects nested in commonSeriesSettings: area, splinearea, steparea, etc.
JavaScript
$(function () {
    $("#chartContainer").dxChart({
        series: [{
            type: "area"
        }, {
            // ...
        }],
        commonSeriesSettings: {
            area: { ... },
            splinearea: { ... },
            steparea: { ... },
            stackedarea: { ... },
            stackedsplinearea: { ... },
            fullstackedarea: { ... },
            fullstackedsplinearea: { ... }
        }
    });
});

Refer to the Series Types section of the API Reference for a full list of options available to a specific series type.
