Is it possible? I can't figure out what start and width properties would be set to.

Hi Rosanne,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

We would like to inform you that, it is possible to set ChartStripline to the DateTimeAxis by converting the corresponding datetime value to the
double value as like in the below code snippet,
DateTimeAxis datetimeaxis = new DateTimeAxis(); 
datetimeaxis.LabelFormat = "MMM"; 
chart.PrimaryAxis = datetimeaxis;  
ChartStripLine stripline = new ChartStripLine(); 
stripline.Start = new DateTime(2010, 04, 01).ToOADate(); 
stripline.Width = 91; 
stripline.Background = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.LightBlue); 
stripline.Opacity = 0.8; 
stripline.Label = "Quarter 2"; 

Please find the output screenshot, 

We have prepared a demo sample for your reference and it can be downloaded from below link,
Sample: VerticalStripLine_DateTimeAxis

Hello, i was wondering how to do this in an asp.net core razor page.

Hi Rosanne, 
Thanks for your update.  
You can achieve this requirement in Asp.Net core by adding stripline to axis’s striplines collection as per the below code snippet.  
Code snippet 
<ejs-chart id="container" width="60%"> 
        <e-chart-primaryxaxis valueType="Category"></e-chart-primaryxaxis> 
            <e-chart-axis name="yAxis" valueType="Category"> 
                    <e-stripline visible="true" start="20" end="30" color="red"></e-stripline> 
            <e-series dataSource="ViewBag.dataSource" xName="x" yName="y" yAxisName="yAxis" type="@Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ChartSeriesType.Column"></e-series>

Hello thanks for the quick response. Can you provide an example were the primaryxaxis is of valuetype DATETIME instead of CATEGORY?
The primaryxaxis constists of 70 hours and I want to draw stripline on a specific hour..

Best regards,

Hi Rosanne, 
Thanks for the update. We have prepared a sample by rendering strip line with date time axis. Find the code snippet below to achieve this requirement and you can change this based on your requirement. 
<ejs-chart id="chartContainer" load="chartLoad"> 
    <e-chart-primaryxaxis valueType="DateTime"> 
            <e-primaryxaxis-stripline visible="true" text="Stripline" color="red"></e-primaryxaxis-stripline> 
function chartLoad(args) { 
        args.chart.primaryXAxis.stripLines[0].start = new Date(2019, 0, 4); 
        args.chart.primaryXAxis.stripLines[0].end = new Date(2019, 0, 5);

Whenever I try this approach I get the following error 

"System.ArgumentException: 'Object of type 'Syncfusion.EJ2.PivotView.PivotViewStripLine' cannot be converted to type 'Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ChartStripLine'.'"

This is our  XAxis markup

<e-chart-primaryxaxis edgeLabelPlacement="Shift" plotOffset="12" valueType="DateTime" interval="@Model.DateTimeAxisIntervalGrouping" intervalType="@Model.DateTimeAxisInterval" labelFormat="@Model.DateTimeAxisDateFormat" minimum="@Model.DateFrom" maximum="@Model.DateTo">
    <e-majorgridlines width="0"></e-majorgridlines>
        <e-primaryxaxis-stripline visible="true" text="Stripline" color="red"></e-primaryxaxis-stripline>

What are we doing that is causing rhe control to think we are using a PivotViewStripLine?

Hi Pat, 
We have analyzed your query. From that, we would like to let you know that as of now it is not possible to achieve striplines through striplines tag. Hence we suggest you to use below solution in which we have added stripline in code behind to achieve your requirement. We have prepared a sample for your reference. Please find the sample and screenshot below. 
Let us know if you have any concerns.
