WPF Export and Screenshot Options in 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

SciChart supports exporting the chart, including legends, series and annotations to various image formats, including export to BitmapSource (in-memory bitmap), to Png, Jpg or Bmp file, to XPS (scalable vector format) or printing to local printer.

Export Scalable Vectors

To export a scalable vector such as XPS, you will need to enable the XamlRenderSurface.

There is a code sample how to enable the XamlRenderSurface here.

Be sure to re-enable the old RenderSurface after export as the XamlRenderSurface is slower and is not suitable for real-time drawing.
