    Hi,
    Can You explain how this format is work? It is hard to understand for me ;)
    Bellow is some example (https://canvasjs.com/docs/charts/chart-options/data/xvaluetype/)

    data: [
    {
    type: “column”,
    xValueType: “dateTime”,
    dataPoints: [

    { x: 1088620200000, y :71},
    { x: 1104517800000, y : 55 },
    { x: 1112293800000, y: 50 },
    { x: 1136053800000, y : 65 },
    { x: 1157049000000, y : 95 },
    { x: 1162319400000, y : 68 },
    { x: 1180636200000, y : 28 },
    { x: 1193855400000, y : 34 },
    { x: 1209580200000, y : 14 },
    { x: 1230748200000, y : 34 },
    { x: 1241116200000, y : 44 },
    { x: 1262284200000, y : 84 },
    { x: 1272652200000, y : 4 },
    { x: 1291141800000, y : 44 },
    { x: 1304188200000, y : 11 }
    ]
    }
    ]
    });

    @lolq9,

    This format is termed as Timestamp. The Unix timestamp is a way to track time as a running total of seconds. This count starts at the Unix Epoch on January 1st, 1970 at UTC. Therefore, the Unix timestamp is merely the number of seconds between a particular date and the Unix Epoch. For more information, kindly read this Wikipedia article. In JavaScript, a timestamp is the number of milliseconds that have passed since January 1, 1970, hence you need to multiply the Unix timestamp by 1000 to convert it to JS timestamp.
