The PointLine 3D Chart Type

Examples for the PointLine 3D Chart can be found in the SciChart WPF Examples Suite which can be downloaded from the SciChart Website or our SciChart.WPF.Examples Github Repository.

3D Point-Line Charts are provided by the PointLineRenderableSeries3D type.



The PointLineRenderableSeries3D supports multiple pointmarkers, including:

3D Marker Types

Fast 2D Marker types

Declaring a 3D Point Line Series

To declare a 3D Point Line Series with individual sizes & colors, use the following code.

Copy Code
<s3D:SciChart3DSurface x:Name="SciChart"
        <!--  To create a Scatter Chart, create a ScatterRenderableSeries3D and use a 3D point marker type  -->
        <s3D:PointLineRenderableSeries3D x:Name="PointLineSeries3D"
                <s3D:SpherePointMarker3D Opacity="1" Size="2" />
        <s3D:NumericAxis3D GrowBy="0.1,0.1" />
        <s3D:NumericAxis3D GrowBy="0.1,0.1" />
        <s3D:NumericAxis3D GrowBy="0.1,0.1" />


Code Behind
Copy Code
private void OnLoaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs routedEventArgs)
    var xyzDataSeries3D = new XyzDataSeries3D<double>();
    var random = new Random(0);
    for (var i = 0; i < Count; i++)
        var x = 5*Math.Sin(i);
        var y = i;
        var z = 5*Math.Cos(i);
        Color? randomColor = Color.FromArgb(0xFF, (byte) random.Next(50, 255), (byte) random.Next(50, 255), (byte) random.Next(50, 255));
        var scale = (float) ((random.NextDouble() + 0.5)*3.0);
        xyzDataSeries3D.Append(x, y, z, new PointMetadata3D(randomColor, scale));
    PointLineSeries3D.DataSeries = xyzDataSeries3D;

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


Property IsLineStrips

The Point Line 3D Series also allows you to split the line at every other point. useful if you want to use it to draw a free-form grid. To enable this behaviour, set the IsLineStrips property. This property is used in the 3D Charts > Tooltips & Hit-Test > Series Tooltips 3D Charts example.
