SciChart WPF 2D Charts > 2D Chart Types > The Column Series Type
The Column Series Type

Column Series are provided by the FastColumnRenderableSeries type. This draws columns between the X-Y data-point and the ZeroLineY, a constant Y-value (defaults to zero).

Examples for the Column Series can be found in the SciChart WPF Examples Suite which can be downloaded from the SciChart Website or our SciChart.WPF.Examples Github Repository.

To declare a FastColumnRenderableSeries use the following code:

Declare a FastColumnRenderableSeries in Xaml / Code Behind

<s:SciChartSurface>

    <s:SciChartSurface.RenderableSeries>
       <s:FastColumnRenderableSeries x:Name="columnSeries" AntiAliasing="True"
                                        StrokeThickness="1"
                                        Stroke="White"
                                        Fill="OrangeRed"
                                        DataPointWidth="0.4"
                                        UseUniformWidth="False"
                                          ZeroLineY="0.0">
       </s:FastColumnRenderableSeries>
    </s:SciChartSurface.RenderableSeries>

    <!--  XAxis, YAxis omitted for brevity  -->

</s:SciChartSurface>

// Code Behind, e.g. in OnLoaded event handler, set the DataSeries
var dataSeries = new XyDataSeries<double, double>();
for(int i = 0; i < 100; i++)
       dataSeries.Append(i, Math.Sin(i*0.2));
columnSeries.DataSeries = dataSeries;

Declare a FastColumnRenderableSeries in Pure Code

Declare a FastColumnRenderableSeries
Copy Code
// Declare the scichartsurface
var sciChartSurface = new SciChartSurface();
// ...
// Declare and add a Column Series
var columnSeries = new FastColumnRenderableSeries()
{
    Stroke = Colors.White,
    Fill = new SolidColorBrush(Color.FromArgb(0x33, 0xFF, 0x66, 0x00)),
     StrokeThickness = 2,
    DataPointWidth = 0.4,
    UseUniformWidth = false,
    AntiAliasing = true,
    ZeroLineY = 0.0,
};
sciChartSurface.RenderableSeries.Add(columnSeries);

// Set some data
var dataSeries = new XyDataSeries<double, double>();
for(int i = 0; i < 100; i++)
    dataSeries.Append(i, Math.Sin(i*0.2));
columnSeries.DataSeries = dataSeries;

 

NOTE: You can also declare RenderableSeries using full MVVM (series ViewModels). Please see MVVM DataSeries / RenderableSeries API for more details
