WPF Realtime Chart with Cursors

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.

This example demonstrates the use of the RolloverModifier in a real-time context. The RolloverModifier provides a DataContext which you can bind to if you want to display X,Y values under the cursor.

Notice in the source code for this example, we set RolloverModifier.UseInterpolation = true, and create a separate ItemsControl to bind to RolloverModifier.SeriesData.SeriesInfo. This is a collection of objects which exposes X,Y values, series names and series color at the cursor position.

The ItemsControl is very similar to the internals of the LegendControl. Both RolloverModifier and LegendModifier expose a collection of SeriesInfo objects, which contain data about the X,Y values, series name and series color.
