Angular2 ng2-chart customizations?

I have started to use angular2 ng2-chart. I have few questions regarding the below image which I created using angular2 ng2-chart but still want to do more customization:

Sample Chart

Questions:

1) How can I draw a dotted-line between two points when there are no values like in above image Nov-7 has value 0 (zero)?

2) How can I make a shadow effect, opacity or a combination of more than one colors?

3) How can I get the value of y-axis when I hover on any of the defined point and also if I want to change the y-axis grid color on mouse hover. What is the best way to do it using ng2-chart hover function?

Current sample code and config file:

index.html

<div class="container">
  <div class="row">
    <div class="overview-page">
      <div class="overview-page-title">
        <h2>Overview</h2>
      </div>
      <div class="chart-view">
        <canvas baseChart
            class="chart"
            [datasets]="charts.datasets"
            [labels]="charts.labels"
            [colors]="charts.chartColors"
            [options]="charts.options"
            [legend]="false"
            [chartType]="charts.type"
            (chartHover)="chartHovered($event)">
        </canvas>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

index.component.ts

import {Component, Output, EventEmitter, OnInit} from '@angular/core';
import {Router} from '@angular/router';
import {Config} from '../../../config/config';

@Component({
  templateUrl: 'index.html',
  styleUrls: ['../../../../common/stylesheets/pages/index.scss']
})

export class IndexComponent implements OnInit {

  protected charts: any;

  ngOnInit() {
    this.charts = (<any>Config.get('test')).charts;
    console.log(this.charts);
  }

  chartHovered(e:any):void {
    console.log(e);
  }
}

Config.ts:

import * as Immutable from 'immutable';
export const Config = Immutable.Map({
  test: {
    charts: {
      datasets: [{
        data: [40, 48.2, 0, 52.6, 51.1, 57.6, 74.8]
      }],
      labels: ['Nov 5', 'Nov 6', 'Nov 7', 'Nov 8', 'Nov 9', 'Nov 10', 'Nov 11'],
      type: 'line',
      options: {
        scales: {
          xAxes: [{
            gridLines: {
              color: 'rgba(171,171,171,1)',
              lineWidth: 1
            }
          }],
          yAxes: [{
            ticks: {
              beginAtZero: true,
              max: 100,
              min: 0,
              stepSize: 25
            },
            gridLines: {
              color: 'rgba(171,171,171,1)',
              lineWidth: 0.5
            }
          }]
        },
        responsive: true
      },
      chartColors: [{
        backgroundColor: 'rgba(25,10,24,0.2)',
        borderColor: 'rgba(225,10,24,0.2)',
        pointBackgroundColor: 'rgba(225,10,24,0.2)',
        pointBorderColor: '#fff',
        pointHoverBackgroundColor: '#fff',
        pointHoverBorderColor: 'rgba(225,10,24,0.2)'
      }]
    }
  }
});

I couldn't find the best answer to your first question. However you can define multiple datasets with no intersection and use different colours (see the point 2) for that one.

For the second one when you define colours, as you are already doing it in your code:

chartColors: [{
    backgroundColor: 'rgba(25,10,24,0.2)',
    borderColor: 'rgba(225,10,24,0.2)',
    pointBackgroundColor: 'rgba(225,10,24,0.2)',
    pointBorderColor: '#fff',
    pointHoverBackgroundColor: '#fff',
    pointHoverBorderColor: 'rgba(225,10,24,0.2)'
  }

The last number in rgba is the opacity. For having different colours the option is to define multiple datasets, otherwise it randomises the colours and you won't get mixed ones. A plunker here:

For the last question regarding getting the value of x-axis, look at the event which is logged to console on bounded events.
