Hello,

Basically you can set a different background color to the plotArea by plotArea.background option. However in order to set background similar to the attached image you can use valueAxis.plotBands.

Please refer to the example below.

how would you do this when you don't know all your data values?  Where the value axis changes depending on a max value?  It could be 20 or 1000 depending on the data set.

Hello,

If the value range is not known in advance then I can suggest to use the approach demonstrated in this example to draw the plotbands via the Drawing API in the render event - example.
