WPF Chart Create a Custom Theme

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

SciChart Ships with 8 stunning themes, which you can apply to your charts with a single line of code.

This example shows how to style SciChart with your own custom theme, and how it affects default cursor, zoom, axis, grid and series colors.


To define your custom theme you need to create a ResourceDictionary with the brushes and colors which are all keyed off the properties in the IThemeProvider interface.

You can also take one of our themes and just override certain brushes or colors.
