Charts: Can I create a stacked area chart?

Jul 8, 2009 at 9:46 PM

I see how I can create an area chart using the AreaSeries, but is there a way to create a stacked area chart so the series are stacked vertically?  Here is an example of what I am talking about:

Anyone know how to do this, or if it is even possible?

myczek,

Stacked series aren't currently supported - though they're planned for a future release. That said, some people have had a go at adding such support themselves - please have a look at the following if you're the adventursome sort:

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the link, I'll give it a try, and I look forward to the future built in support for stacked series.

I second myczek's request - stacked charts are a common requirement for business apps (stacked columns and areas), and this would really be a welcome addition!

Looking forward a future release including that feature,
