The .NET MAUI step area chart is similar to the area chart, but it does not use the shortest distance to connect two data points with diagonal lines. Instead, the step area chart uses vertical and horizontal lines to connect data points in a series forming a step-like progression. This type of chart can be configured with numeric, categoric, date-time, and logarithmic axis. It supports zooming and panning, trackball, tooltips, and selection.
