Worked Example - PointMarkers in MVVM

Worked Example: PointMarkers in MVVM

There are two ways that a point-marker can be added, styled and manipulated in SciChart via MVVM:

  1. You can add a point-marker to the RenderableSeriesViewmodel.PointMarker property
  2. You can add a Point-Marker to the style assigned to the RenderableSeries

ViewModel
PointMarkers in MVVM
Copy Code
public class HelloSciChartWorldViewModel : INotifyPropertyChanged
{
    private readonly ObservableCollection<IRenderableSeriesViewModel> _seriesViewModels = new ObservableCollection<IRenderableSeriesViewModel>();
    private readonly XyDataSeries<double, double> _xyData = new XyDataSeries<double, double>();

    public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChanged;

    public HelloSciChartWorldViewModel()
    {
        for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++)
        {
            _xyData.Append(i, Math.Sin(i * 0.2));
        }

        SeriesViewModels.Add(new LineRenderableSeriesViewModel() { DataSeries = _xyData, StyleKey = "LineSeriesStyle0" });
    }

    public ObservableCollection<IRenderableSeriesViewModel> SeriesViewModels
    {
        get { return _seriesViewModels; }
    }

    protected virtual void OnPropertyChanged(string propertyName)
    {
        var handler = PropertyChanged;
        if (handler != null)
        {
            handler(this, new PropertyChangedEventArgs(propertyName));
        }           
    }
}
Alternative ViewModel – add PointMarker to RenderableSeriesViewModel

Alternatively, simply add a PointMarker to the RenderableSeriesViewModel as follows:

Alternative ViewModel – add PointMarker to RenderableSeriesViewModel
Copy Code
SeriesViewModels.Add(new LineRenderableSeriesViewModel()
{
   DataSeries = _xyData,
   StyleKey = "LineSeriesStyle0" ,
   PointMarker = new EllipsePointMarker() { Width = 5, Height = 5},
});
