Area Chart


The area chart plots a set of values on a line per series, and fills the background of the plot area with the series color for each series in the given dataset.
Note: Unlike the ChartComponent (jFreeChart based), the Flash Area chart does not stack the area.

Dataset Guidelines

This chart expects its data as a categorical dataset.

Required Properties

The only property an area chart requires is the appropriate chart-type.

<chart-type>AreaChart</chart-type>

The example below contains the full set of additional supported properties with comments on its purpose and valid values.  It is recommended that new users start with this example as a starting place for building your first flash chart.
