Excel.ChartSeriesCollection class

Represents a collection of chart series.

[ API set: ExcelApi 1.1 ]

Extends
OfficeExtension.ClientObject

Properties

context

The request context associated with the object. This connects the add-in's process to the Office host application's process.

count

Returns the number of series in the collection. Read-only.

[ API set: ExcelApi 1.1 ]

items

Gets the loaded child items in this collection.

Methods

add(name, index)

Add a new series to the collection. The new added series is not visible until set values/x axis values/bubble sizes for it (depending on chart type).

[ API set: ExcelApi 1.7 ]

getCount()

Returns the number of series in the collection.

[ API set: ExcelApi 1.4 ]

getItemAt(index)

Retrieves a series based on its position in the collection.

[ API set: ExcelApi 1.1 ]

load(options)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call context.sync() before reading the properties.

load(propertyNames)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call context.sync() before reading the properties.

load(propertyNamesAndPaths)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call context.sync() before reading the properties.

toJSON()

Overrides the JavaScript toJSON() method in order to provide more useful output when an API object is passed to JSON.stringify(). (JSON.stringify, in turn, calls the toJSON method of the object that is passed to it.) Whereas the original Excel.ChartSeriesCollection object is an API object, the toJSON method returns a plain JavaScript object (typed as Excel.Interfaces.ChartSeriesCollectionData) that contains an "items" array with shallow copies of any loaded properties from the collection's items.

Returns

Examples

// Getting the names of series in the series collection.
Excel.run(function (ctx) { 
    var seriesCollection = ctx.workbook.worksheets.getItem("Sheet1").charts.getItem("Chart1").series;

    return ctx.sync().then(function() {
        for (var i = 0; i < seriesCollection.items.length; i++)
        {
            console.log(seriesCollection.items[i].name);
        }
    });
}).catch(function(error) {
    console.log("Error: " + error);
    if (error instanceof OfficeExtension.Error) {

    }
});
// Get the number of chart series in collection.
Excel.run(function (ctx) { 
    var seriesCollection = ctx.workbook.worksheets.getItem("Sheet1").charts.getItem("Chart1").series;

        console.log("series: Count= " + seriesCollection.count);
    });
}).catch(function(error) {
    console.log("Error: " + error);
