Line Chart Shadow area



Are we able to somehow have the shadow area in the line chart ?

I have produced below chart:




But ideally we would like to colour the dotted lines areas, something like below (purple line should be a line only!):



So it is something like having a area chart combined with the line chart.
Are you aware about any solutions to this ? 
any tips or tricks are welcome! 🙂


Thanks in advance.

@Kopek  Did you try Area Chart like below?



Don't forget to give thumbs up and accept this as a solution if it helped you!!!

Please take a quick glance at newly created dashboards : Restaurant Management Dashboard , HR Analytics Report , Hotel Management Report, and Sales Analysis Report

@Tahreem24 yes, i did try this, but with area chart purple line will not be the line, but would have a shadow area as well...
i need purple line to be a line on grey area... just testing overlying the line chart on area chart.

Hi @Kopek ,


Based on my research, there is no such default visual to achieve your requirement in current Power BI visual. If you are good at coding, you could create your own custom visual to achieve this requirement.
