Hi,

I'm trying to create a area chart where I can stack data in separate groups . What I see is that if stack is set to true, all the series are put on a single stack, irrespective of the stack-name assigned. But if I change one of the groups to bars, then the area-bar combination renders correctly. I've also tried to move one of the groups to a different axis, but with the same result .

Please have a look at the attached sample. There are two buttons at the bottom of the chart to toggle between 2 stacked area charts & 1 stacked area + 1 stacked bar chart combination . 

 

Best Regards

 Achilles

Hi Achilles,

The area and line series do not stack by the same rules as column charts and stacking these types of charts into different stacks is not supported. If you have a minute, you could file a feature request at our UserVoivce portal - this way the community would be able to vote / comment it and we will consider this feature for future releases.

Hi Iliana,

In my ​example I'm stacking different object types using different axes. I've modified the sample to add an option to stack by columns. What I see is that, the columns stacks by a different rule (​correct rule), which also makes sense as 1 set of columns represent a count of people tied to 1 Y-axis , whereas the other set of columns is tied to a different Y-axis which represents a different dimension, area. So the column charts correctly stacks them separately. But the area charts stacks the 2 axis together, hence adding the number of people to amount of area. 

I wanted to follow your advice and add a new feature request. But I'd appreciate your second opinion given my description above. Please have a look at the re-worked sample. 

 Regards

 Achilles

Hi Achilles,

When area series are stacked, they cannot be associated with different value axes. Please excuse us for any inconvenience this may cause.
