Adding single data points to a series


I’m really in need of some help please.
I have a stacked area chart & then I need to plot points (scatter chart) along the top axis of the same chart. The category axis is of type Date.
The problem is that the points will represent about a dozen different types of communications & will need various different marker symbols - so essentially it will be multiple different series in the scatter chart.
The way the data is grouped is that on any date (data row) I might need to add a point to a scatter series that already exists.
Is there a way to define the series (type, marker, colour), then add single points to it by settingXY value & then something like
nSeries(index).datapoints.add(new point(xy))
I need to be able to add a point at random to a series that’s already been added to the chart.


Thanks for using Aspose.Cells for .NET.

We think, you will have to add series having a single point every time you wanted to add a point.

If this does not work for you, then please provide us your sample xls/xlsx file with your desired chart.

You can create it manually using Ms-Excel and post it here.

We will soon look into your issue and help you asap.
