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 use of the SeriesSelectionModifier, which hooks into the ChartModifier API to select series on mouse-clicks. This complex, but easy to implement example uses many concepts in the ChartModifier API to bind legends and series together.

The selected series is styled via the SeriesSelectionModifier.SelectedSeriesStyle. A blanket style applied to any series which is selected. Also you can use the BaseRenderableSeries.SelectedSeriesStyle to achieve the same effect on an individual series level.

Finally, a LegendModifier exposes the currently selected series, and we can use a SciChartLegend to show the name of which series is selected.
