The WPF Area Chart is like a line chart that represents time-dependent data and shows the trend at equal intervals, but it fills the area created by the line. This type of chart can be configured with a numerical, category, date-time, or logarithmic axis for the graph. It supports zooming, scrolling, tooltip, trackball, and selection.
