The Stacked Mountains Type

Stacked Mountains are provided by the StackedMountainRenderableSeries type. This shares many of the properties with the FastMountainRenderableSeries type, with the added feature that mountains automatically stack (aggregate Y-values).

To declare a StackedMountainRenderableSeries, use the following code:

Note: You can also declare StackedMountainRenderableSeries using full MVVM (series ViewModels). Please see the MVVM vs. Code-Behind Cheat Sheet for more details

 

How the Stacking and Grouping Works for Mountain Series

StackedMountainRenderableSeries has a property StackedGroupId which defines how mountains/areas are grouped and stacked. When two StackedMountainRenderableSeries have a StackedGroupId set the mountains behave differently. Some examples below to help visualize this feature.

e.g.

Two Mountains, same (or Unset) StackedGroupID (the default)

By default, the StackedGroupId is null. When this is unset, or, when set to the same value, mountains stack vertically


Orange = no StackedGroupId, Blue = no StackedGroupId

Two Mountains, different StackedGroupId

When the StackedGroupID is different on two mountains, then the mountains are grouped. This allows you to have multiple stacked groups.


Orange = StackedGroupId A, Blue = StackedGroupId B

Three Columns, (2 with one StackedGroupId, 1 with another StackedGroupId)

To demonstrate the purpose of StackedGroupId, below we have set one mountain to one StackedGroupId, and two other mountains to another StackedGroupId. This creates two stacked groups, one with Orange/Red series (which have the same StackedGroupID) and another with the blue series.

Orange, Red = StackedGroupID A, Blue = StackedGroupID B
