Accepted answer

i'm sorry if I didn't answer before.

Here a working fiddle

Let's explain my solution:

With Charts.js you can use only one set of labels for both two x axes, the workaround is to populate the labels array with 2 dates every one value of the array, after that, you have to call a callback in the "ticks" method of every xAxe that will split dates with a delimiter ("#" in my case).

In our case, we want to show two periods (like the ecommerce revenue of every day, this week and the last week), your labels array will be like:

{labels: ["09/01/2018#02/01/2018","10/01/2018#03/01/2018"] ...}

If you see the first value "09/01/2018#02/01/2018", the date before the "#" character is for the period 1, the second one is for the period 2.


  • First. You have to build the labels array, the days for every period must be the same number for every period values

  • Give an unique Id for every xAxe

  • Call "ticks" callback for every xAxe that will elaborate every labels array value, so you can split and draw your correct date for every day

I hope I have helped you


I Know its an old question but I found out a great solution for this, m using .net framework.

1- make a store procedure to get all the data from database for this year GroupBy the data and first 3 letter of the month:

 SELECT  sum(anything) AS something ,  MAX ( Convert(char(3),, 0)) AS ALL_MONTHS 

2- make a store procedure to get all the data from database for last year, similar to step 1 but the where clause would be something like this:

.......... WHERE YEAR( = YEAR(GETDATE()) - 1 ..........

means minus the current year.

3- after sending the data from controller to view, in the View page use JS to manipulate the data.

note: there are 12 month so make an array for 12 month so that way there will be only one label but the data will figure out there place of month according to the index that they will receive from the js loop function.

/////-- chart-----------------------------------------------------

   var salesChartCanvas = $('#salesChart').get(0).getContext('2d')

    var months = @Html.Raw(Json.Encode(Model.expChartMonths));
    var total = @Html.Raw(Json.Encode(Model.expChartTotal));
      var Lastmonths = @Html.Raw(Json.Encode(Model.expChartMonthsLast));
    var Lasttotal = @Html.Raw(Json.Encode(Model.expChartTotalLast));

    var arr = [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0];
    var arr2 = [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0];

    function getMonthFromString(mon) {
        return new Date(Date.parse(mon + " 1, 2021")).getMonth()

    function getMonth(mon) {
        return new Date(Date.parse(mon + " 1, 2021")).getMonth()
    //this year
    for (var x = 0; x < months.length; x++) { arr2[getMonth(months[x])] = total[x] }
    //last year
    for (var i = 0; i < Lastmonths.length; i++) { arr[getMonthFromString(Lastmonths[i])] = Lasttotal[i] }

    var salesChartData = {
        labels: ["Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May", "Jun", "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec"],
            datasets: [
                    label: 'This Year Expenses',
                    fill: false,
