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

The Trade Markers demo uses the Annotations API to place CustomAnnotations rendering buy and sell or news bullet markers over a simulated price chart.

The CustomAnnotations are created in a ViewModel and contain data-bound to a Trade object, containing Buy, Sell, Quantity and Deal-price information. The SciChartSurface data-binds to the resulting AnnotationCollection and renders the annotations on the chart.

News/Event bullet annotations use AnnotationBase.CoordinateMode = CoordinateMode.RelativeY to always place the event bullet at the bottom of the chart.

Example Usage

Hover over a CustomAnnotation to see a Tooltip showing the details for each trade.

Zoom by dragging, or double-click to reset zoom, to see how annotations automatically update as the chart viewport changes.
