WPF Impulse (Stem) Chart

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

Our WPF Impulse (Stem) Chart generates an Impulse-response style chart with optional point-marker in code. The FastImpulseRenderableSeries can be used to render an XyDataSeries, XyyDataSeries (uses Y1 only) or OhlcDataSeries (renders close).


You can add optional data-point markers to a impulse series using the PointMarker API. This is very performant and uses the same bitmap rendering as our Scatter-Charts.
