Step Area Chart

ASP.NET MVC Step Area Chart Sample using CanvasJS

Here is an example for adding Interactive Step Area Charts into your ASP.NET MVC Application using CanvasJS. Step Area Charts are much like step line charts except that the area under them are shaded. The Step Area Charts can be used when you want to highlight the increase or decrease in values over time.

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: "stepArea",
    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.
