    I was looking at this example:

    Creating Charts from XML

    Is there a way to create multiple sets of datapoints from an XML file?

    @bxpocalypse1,

    It is possible to create a multi-series chart with data from an XML file by looping through the XML data as shown in the code-snippet below,

    $(data).find("point").each(function () {
        var $dataPoint = $(this);
        var x = $dataPoint.find("x").text();
        var y1 = $dataPoint.find("y1").text();
        var y2 = $dataPoint.find("y2").text();
        dps1.push({x: parseFloat(x), y: parseFloat(y1)});
        dps2.push({x: parseFloat(x), y: parseFloat(y2)});
      });

    The format of the dataPoints in the XML file (e.g. data.xml) should be:

    <point>
    	<x>5</x>
    	<y1>8</y1>
    	<y2>10</y2>
    </point>

    Kindly take a look at this CodeSandbox for a working example.
