WPF Realtime Scrolling Charts with FIFO

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.

Demonstrates the difference between FIFO and standard DataSeries. A FIFO series discards old data-points once a predefined number of points is met. This type of data-series is extremely efficient for scrolling charts, where you do not care about discarded (off-screen) data.

FIFO Series can be used in more ways than just scrolling a chart. For instance, reload the entire FIFO buffer each frame to get a Spectrum Analyzer style chart. Or, use FIFO series and set the XAxis.VisibleRange to achieve an ECG style chart.

Example Usage

If you pause this example you can uncheck USE FIFO and re-run it to see the difference in behavior. At any time, press Reset to get back to the starting state.
