    Hi,
    I know i can add markedzones to a chart. but just wondering if it is possible to add a markedzone to a series.

    this works fine =>   chart.PlotArea.MarkedZones.Add(mz1);

    but this will give an error =>   series[i].PlotArea.MarkedZones.Add(mz1);

    Thanks

    Hi Prasanna,

    Thank you for contacting us.
    Presently RadChart doesn't provide such a feature - marked zones for Series. Can you please supply some additional details on your setup/requirement? How is the marked zone going to be defined? 
    In what cases/scenarios is this going to be used? Any additional information will help us better address the question at hand.

    Kind regards,

    Hey Evgenia ,

    I can understand that RadChart does not provide the feature I wanted. but FYI, scenario I'm having is,

    I'm trying to plot some test results in to the graph. There are number of Chemical Elements in the solution we are testing. in this case each element is a series because we are plotting all history readings to the chart. (I'll be attaching a image of a chart with what i want drawn on it.)

    So each of these elements has it's own maximum, minimum and average recommended zones. The request is to plot these limits on the graphs as lines (not as colored zones). but the trick is each series has it's own limits. so i wanted to plot these limits as lines on same color as series color.

    hope this does make sense to you

    Cheers
    Prasanna

    Hi Prasanna,

    Thank you for your explanation and attached picture. Now I understand why you needed marked zones for series. I suggest you two approaches to complete your scenario:
    1.  Use Marked Zones but make their start value and end value equal. After that you can customize it's border as it will be the onliest thing you will see. Here is shown a sample:

    <MarkedZones>
                <telerik:ChartMarkedZone ValueStartY="2" ValueEndY="2" Appearance-Border-Color="Blue"
                    Appearance-Border-Width="1.5" Appearance-Border-PenStyle="Dash">
                    <Appearance FillStyle-MainColor="green">
                    </Appearance>
                </telerik:ChartMarkedZone>
    </MarkedZones>
       2.  Use Line Series as bridle for your recommended zones. Just disable their label appearance and set FillStyle-MainColor to be the same as those used for original LineSeries. Here is a sample:
    <Series>
            <telerik:ChartSeries Name="series 1" Type="Line" Appearance-FillStyle-MainColor="red"
                Appearance-LabelAppearance-Visible="false">
                <Items>
                    <telerik:ChartSeriesItem YValue="4" XValue="0" />
                    <telerik:ChartSeriesItem YValue="4" XValue="1" />
                    <telerik:ChartSeriesItem YValue="4" XValue="2" />
                    <telerik:ChartSeriesItem YValue="4" XValue="3" />
                    <telerik:ChartSeriesItem YValue="4" XValue="4" />
                </Items>
            </telerik:ChartSeries>
        </Series>

    Note that YValue is constant. It defines where your Line will be positioned.

    I hope this information helps.

    Best wishes,
