Bug in line chart?

I noticed a strange behavior in line charts when expression is "empty".

Here is a basic example.

I load this :

DateTypeValue
1Blue1
2Blue2
3Blue3
4Blue2
5Blue5
6Blue3
1Red2
2Red5
3Red3
4Red1

Notice that for some "dates" Type "Red" is missing.

The basic line chart (displaying Value) works :

But if I change its style, bug with the colors!

At the date "5" I should have just the "Blue" area at 5 and no "Red" area

At the date "6" I should have just the "Blue" area at 3 and no "Red" area

Question is : Am I doing something wrong or is it a real bug?

No it is not a bug see the data for Red it is only for 1,2,3,4 Date

1Red2
2Red5
3Red3
4Red1

Same as for Blue it is for 1,2,3,4,5,6 Date that s why when you draw a line chart it shows only for 4 dates for Red. For same chart convert this into Bar Chart then you see the difference.

Seems like a bug to me. The behaviour is different when you add dimension values for Red for those dates.

Re: Bug in line chart?

I don't get your answer.

As you noticed, Red has no value for dates 5 and 6 so why is there a red area for dates 5 and 6?

(And I don't want another type of chart I really want this style of line chart).

If I put 0 values on Red for dates "5" and "6" the second style line chart is still wrong.

DateTypeValue
1Blue1
2Blue2
3Blue3
4Blue2
5Blue5
6Blue3
1Red2
2Red5
3Red3
4Red1
5Red0
6Red0

I have to do this to bet the real thing but it seems awfully far fetched

eTypeValue
1Blue1
2Blue2
3Blue3
4Blue2
5Blue5
6Blue3
1Red2
2Red5
3Red3
4Red1
5Red0.00001
6Red0.00001
