Marking Areas Properties

The properties of marking areas can be fully customized. And here we list three properties that control the appearance, position, size and style of added marked zone.
  • Value: you can use this property to control where the marking area is located and how much area does the marked zone cover by defining the start and end points X and Y value pairs.
  • FillStyle: users can use this property to define the filltype and color of created marking areas.
  • Border: this property contains the attributes of Penstyle(like dash), color and width.
Note: by default, the marking areas will be displayed behind the chart series. By the way, the number of marked zones that is contained in one chart is not limited. And even within one chart, the appearance and other properties of each marking area can be totally different.
