WPF Chart Legends API

WPF Chart - Examples

SciChart WPF ships with hundreds of WPF Chart Examples which you can browse, play with, view the source-code and even export each WPF Chart Example to a stand-alone Visual Studio solution. All of this is possible with the new and improved SciChart WPF Examples Suite, which ships as part of the SciChart WPF SDK.

Download the SDK

Generates a simple line chart with a chart legend. The Legend is created as follows:

– Adding a LegendModifier Type to the SciChartSurface.ChartModifier. This aggregates and exposes series data which you can bind to.
– Adding a SciChartLegend to the chart, binding it to LegendModifier.LegendData.SeriesInfo.


There are many different configurations for the legend, including auto-creation of legend, or fine grained control over the legend rows. Please review the API documentation below carefully for further informatino.
