Stacked Area Charts

The Stacked Area chart is a variation of the Area chart that display trends of the contribution of each value over time (or across categories). The areas are stacked so that each series adjoins but does not overlap the preceding series.  This contrasts with the Area chart where each series overlays the preceding series. 

Depending on the Skin used, RadChart can automatically differentiate each series by displaying it in a different color. The appearance for each series can also be modified directly.

To create a Vertical Stacked Area Chart set the SeriesOrientation property to Vertical. Set the RadChart DefaultType property or ChartSeries.Type to StackedArea.
