    I’m trying to add an average line which is an average of all the other lines on a chart, and while I could do this server side, I was wondering if there was an easy way to do this in canvasjs. This is my current chart http://jsfiddle.net/txcsLgad/1/

    There is no way to do this automatically. Best option is to calculate the averages either on the server (or client side) and adding it to the chart.

    Hello Sir,

    I need to make moving average for a week with column and bar chart. Data should show in Column chart and moving average of two points for 7 days data should be by line chart on bar chart. Please HELP by giving a example.




    You can calculate simple moving average(SMA) by writing few lines of code and pushing the respective values to dataSeries will render the chart with SMA series. Please take a look at the below code snippet for calculating 7 Day SMA and pushing it to chart dataSeries.

    function calculateMovingAverage(chart) {
      var numOfDays = 7;
      // return if there are insufficient dataPoints
      if(chart.options.data[0].dataPoints.length <= numOfDays) return;
      else {
        // Add a new line series for  Moving Averages
          type: "spline",
          markerSize: 0,
          name: "SMA",
          yValueFormatString: "#,##0.00",
          dataPoints: []
        var total;
        for(var i = numOfDays; i < chart.options.data[0].dataPoints.length; i++) {
          total = 0;
          for(var j = (i - numOfDays); j < i; j++) {
            total += chart.options.data[0].dataPoints[j].y;
            x: chart.options.data[0].dataPoints[i].x,
            y: total / numOfDays

    Also, Please have a look at this JSFiddle for complete code.
