Line Graph

A line graph is a graphical display of information that changes continuously over time. A line graph may also be referred to a line chart. Within a line graph, there are points connecting the data to show a continuous change. The lines in a line graph can descend and ascend based on the data. We can use a line graph to compare different events, situations, and information. Note: Choose the file extension as js.

Sample Code

setChartLibrary('google-chart');
setChartTitle('Your Graph Title');
setChartType('lineGraph');
setAxisName('X-Axis Name','Y-axis Name');
plotChart('time_stamp','your_variable_name');
