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

Showcases how to add zooming to a SciChartSurface using the RubberBandXyZoomModifier. This ChartModifier can be added to the SciChartSurface via the SciChartSurface.ChartModifier property, or via a ModifierGroup

The RubberBandXyZoomModifier may be restricted in the X-Axis only (in which case the Y-Axis autoranges according to RubberBandXyZoomModifier.AutoRangeY), or unbounded, in which case it zooms to the exact rectangle you draw. The rectangle may be styled. Zoom can be undone using the ZoomHistoryManager.

Also try double-clicking to zoom to extents. This feature is provided by the ZoomExtentsModifier.
