Point by point coloring in AreaSeries same as for PointLineSeries

Post by GeoffDavis » Fri Dec 04, 2020 5:24 am

Hi

I am using the "CustomLinePointColoringAndShaping" Event in various PointLineSeries and FreeformPointLIneSeries to get a point by point coloring of the various series I create.

Is there a similar event for an Area Series that would allow me to color different sections under the line series with different colors

I want to do the same point by point coloring in an Area as I do for Line Series

Thank you

Hi,

Event CustomLinePointColoringAndShaping handle is not implemented for HighLow- or Area-Series. Primarily it is intended for LINE-SERIES, such as PointLineSeries, FreeformPointLineSeries. In addition, recently it was implemented for Polar View /Series.
AreaSeries is far more than just a line, therefore, requires different approach.
Please note, AreaSeries/HighLowSeries has much more coloring options. It could be colored by value-range palette, could change coloring then exceed/deceed limits, Fill color could be combined from 2 color and an additional pair of ReversedFIll color exist. Please check following chapters from User's Manual:
6.10.1 Fill, line and point styles
6.10.2 Limits
6.10.3 Coloring by value-range palette

Hope this helps.
