Point Line Series

Also known as a Line Series, Line Graph, Line Chart, and Line with Markers

This example shows the basic usage of a line series with 'markers' for visual representation of the data points. Similarly to line series, it is drawn on a Cartesian coordinate system and represents the relationship between two variables. Line series display information as a series of data points connected by straight line segments in any direction. This type of series additionally draws data markers on top of the line at the location specified in a dataset.

The chart can be created with few simple lines of code:

// Add a line series with markers using default X and Y axes.
const lineSeries = chart.addPointLineSeries()

Line Series with markers provides an ability to specify styles for both markers and lines individually.

lineSeries
    .setStrokeStyle(lineStyleObject)
    .setPointFillStyle(fillStyleObject)

It shares the same API with the PointSeries, which allows configuring the visual representation of data markers.

  • PointShape: enum

    PointShapeDescription
    RectangleThe series with rectangle-shaped points
    TriangleThe series with triangle-shaped points.
    SquareThe series with square-shaped points.

    PointShape must be specified upon creation of Series!

    // Add a line series with markers using default X and Y axes. Select Circle PointShape.
    const lineSeries = chart.addPointLineSeries( { pointShape: PointShape.Circle } )
  • PointSize: number

    lineSeries.setPointSize(5.0)
  • IndividualPointFill: FillStyle

    The style indicates individual per point coloring. The style enables the usage of individual fill taken from the input.
    The series can accept points in format { x: number, y: number, color: Color }
    If the color is not provided during the input of data points ( e.g. in format { x: number, y: number } ), the configurable fallback color is used.

    // Create the instance of IndividualPointFill fill style.
    const individualStyle = new IndividualPointFill()
    // Set red color as a fallback color
    individualStyle.setFallbackColor( ColorRGBA( 255, 0, 0 ) )

As it was mentioned before, the series accepts points in format { x: number, y: number: color: Color } with specified IndividualPointFill to enable individual point coloring or { x: number, y: number } for other fill styles. Any number of points can be added with a single call similarly to line series with point markers.

  • Dataset without colors.

    • If IndividualPointFill is specified, the fallback color is used. Otherwise, the specified fill style is used.
    // Dataset of Vec2 data points without color.
    lineSeries
        .add([
            { x: 5, y: 10 },
            { x: 7.5, y: 20 },
            { x: 10, y: 30 }
        ])
  • Dataset with individual colors.

    • If IndividualPointFill is specified, the color from data point or fallback color is used. Otherwise, the specified fill style is used.
    // Dataset of Vec2Color data points with individual color.
    lineSeries
        .add([
            // use red color if IndividualPointFill is specified
            { x: 2.5, y: 0, color: ColorRGBA( 255, 0, 0 ) },
            // use fallback color if IndividualPointFill is specified
            { x: 5, y: 10 },
            // use green color if IndividualPointFill is specified
            { x: 7.5, y: 20, color: ColorRGBA( 0, 255, 0 ) },
            // use blue color if IndividualPointFill is specified
            { x: 10, y: 30, color: ColorRGBA( 0, 0, 255 ) },
        ])
