Vertical Step Area Chart


A Vertical Step Area Chart is a simple Step Area Chart with its categories spread among the vertical axis. The difference between Step Area Chart and Area Chart is that points and angles are replaced with a polyline.

Find how to create a Step Area Chart in the following article: Step Area Chart.

Quick Start

To build a Vertical Step Area Chart, create a simple Step Area Chart using the verticalArea() method of chart creation instead of the area():

// create a vartical area chart
var chart = chart.verticalArea();

// create stepArea series
var series1 = chart.stepArea(seriesData_1);
var series2 = chart.stepArea(seriesData_2);

The Vertical Step Area series' settings are mostly the same as Area series' settings. The majority of information about adjusting series in AnyChart is given in the General Settings article.
