Area Chart

ASP.NET MVC Area Chart Sample using CanvasJS

Here is an example for adding Interactive Area Charts into your ASP.NET MVC Application using CanvasJS. Area Charts are useful when you are interested in cumulative totals over a period of time or range of values. When there are multiple series, each series is assigned a color automatically – but it can also be customized.

Please refer to this tutorial for step by step instruction of adding charts to your ASP.Net MVC Application. We recommend that you download the Sample Visual Studio Project and try it on your own to understand the API better.

var chart = new CanvasJS.Chart("chartContainer", {
.
.
data: [{
    type: "area",
    dataPoints: [
        { y: 6, label: "Apple" },
	{ y: 4, label: "Mango" },
	{ y: 5, label: "Orange" },
    ]
}]
.
.
}

You can further customize these charts to enable features like Zooming, Panning, Exporting, etc. To know more about the available features, please refer to our getting started section.
