Hi,

I have two question on iOS Chart.

1.How can I customize the display value for tooltip generated by SCICursorModifier? I would like to set the following:

15/06/2017
O: 99.35
H: 99.35
L: 98.30
C: 98.75

The text color of OHLC value should be set according to prev. close value.

2.The function setVisibleRange is working for SCIDateTimeAxis but not SCICategoryDateTimeAxis
Here is the initialization of the axis:

id axis = [[SCICategoryDateTimeAxis alloc] init];
axis.axisId = @”X1″;
[axis setAutoRange:SCIAutoRange_Never];
[axis setVisibleRangeLimitMode:SCIRangeClipMode_MinMax];
[surface.yAxes add:axis];

Set the visible range after receiving the data

SCICategoryDateTimeAxis *xAxis = (SCICategoryDateTimeAxis *)[[surface xAxes] getAxisById:@”X1″];
[xAxis setVisibleRange:[[SCIDateRange alloc] initWithDateMin: Max:]];`

I tried to replace the axis type from SCICategoryDateTimeAxis to SCIDateTimeAxis, it works well. Any idea about this?

We are using the candlestick chart, and scrolling off the ends of the plotted data behaves very strangely:
– If I scroll slowly, the chart expands, anchored to the end of the data set (this is expected)
– If I scroll quickly, it lets me scroll beyond the end of the data set
– Once I have scrolled of the end of the data set, touching the screen again jumps back to the data set
– If I scroll slowly so the chart is expanding, and then release touch, the chart continues to move with inertia. If I clock again it jumpos back to expanding mode.

The combination of all these behaviours makes a very confusing and unsatisfying user experience.

Is there a way to change the behaviour? I had a look at https://www.scichart.com/documentation/ios/v2.x/api/dir_2dcc4ec269b335aa862d36c6f6e3093f.html but can’t find anything that might.

We have set:
xAxis is a SCIDateTimeAxis
xAxis.VisibleRange to desired range
xAxis.VisibleRangeLimit = range.Clone() where range is desired range
xAxis.VisibleRangeLimitMode = SCIRangeClipMode.inMax (I guess it should be called minMax but something broke in the build?)
xAxis.AutoRange = SCIAutoRange.Never

with chart modifiers:
– new SCIZoomPanModifier()
– new SCIZoomExtentsModifier()
– new SCIPinchZoomModifier()

Thanks,

Dan

Hi!
I am going through the showcase example for the spectrogram and I had a confusion on the sizeX and Y parameter of SCIUniformHeatmapDataSeries. Are these sizes as per the width and height of the surfaceChart ? I am going to plot an array of data. How do I determine the correct sizes for X and Y.
Moreover, is it necessary that the size array used for updating the dataSeries has to be (xSize*ySize)?

I’m attempting to integrate some of the tutorial swift code into my app and I’m getting stuck on this error. Seems like some macro isn’t running.

“Use of unresolved identifier ‘SCIGeneric'”

Code is like this: lineDataSeries.appendX(SCIGeneric(i), y: SCIGeneric(sin(Double(i))*0.01))

I’ve done “import SciChart” and most things seem to work fine except this. Any ideas? Thanks

I was doing a bit of thinking about how I would be adding a horizontal line to my financial data series because my x-axis was in Date format. So I wrote this walkthrough with 2 functions to help any devs that come along after me.

My example is a bar chart with prices on the vertical y-axis and dates on the x-axis. the final product is posted below as a pic. All that is needed is to count the items in your date data series and you can position your bar relative to that.

my dates were in this object array and I just counted the array to get my bearings.

let totalBars = lastPriceList.count        //  holds number of bars in my price object
let startBar = totalBars - 100             //  this will make my line 100 bars long
let sellPrice = lastBar?.shortEntryPrice   //  here is the price level of the line I want to plot

then I passed that to this function to get a horizontal line

addTradeEntry(SignalLine: sellPrice!, StartBar: startBar, EndBar: totalBars)

here are the 2 functions that do all of the work

private func addTradeEntry(SignalLine: Double, StartBar: Int, EndBar: Int) {

    let horizontalLine1 = SCIHorizontalLineAnnotation()
    horizontalLine1.coordinateMode = .absolute;

// lower number pushes to left side of x axis
    horizontalLine1.x1 = SCIGeneric(StartBar)   
// higher number pushes bar right of x axis
    horizontalLine1.x2 = SCIGeneric(EndBar)    

// the position on y (price) axis
    horizontalLine1.y1 = SCIGeneric(SignalLine) 
    horizontalLine1.horizontalAlignment = .center

    horizontalLine1.isEditable = false
    horizontalLine1.style.linePen = SCISolidPenStyle.init(color: UIColor.red, withThickness: 2.0)
    horizontalLine1.add(self.buildLineTextLabel("Sell \(SignalLine)", alignment: .left, backColor: UIColor.clear, textColor: UIColor.red))
    surface.annotations.add(horizontalLine1)
}

this one formats the text

private func buildLineTextLabel(_ text: String, alignment: SCILabelPlacement, backColor: UIColor, textColor: UIColor) -> SCILineAnnotationLabel {
    let lineText = SCILineAnnotationLabel()
    lineText.text = text
    lineText.style.labelPlacement = alignment
    lineText.style.backgroundColor = backColor
    lineText.style.textStyle.color = textColor
    return lineText
}

Hello,
I’ve been looking for the documentation of how to customize the look of the chart. I have a black/dark gray checker pattern that seems to be the default. I would like to:
1. Change the background to white, no checkerboard pattern
here is the documentation for chart background but it does not show me how to change it to white. https://www.scichart.com/documentation/ios/v2.x/webframe.html#The%20SciChartSurface%20Type.html
I have found through experimentation the I can call

surface.backgroundColor

But that just changes the axis background color

2. Make the text larger on the axis.
here is the documentation for the axis https://www.scichart.com/documentation/ios/v2.x/webframe.html#Adding%20an%20Axis%20to%20a%20SciChartSurface.html
I see these lines that were provided but they won’t compile because Xcode doesn’t know what defaultFontSize is and there are no other references to it and I still don’t see a way to set the size.

textFormat.fontName = SCSFontsName.defaultFontName
textFormat.fontSize = SCSFontSizes.defaultFontSize

I think it would be helpful to create a walkthrough for iOS that shows how to customize the background and axis. I’ve looked through the samples provided but the files are huge and I get lost trying to figure it out.
Thanks,
Warren

Trying to install SciChart.iOS NuGet package for Xamarin.iOS project results the following error:

Package SciChart.iOS 2.0.1.527 is not compatible with xamarinios10 (Xamarin.iOS,Version=v1.0). Package SciChart.iOS 2.0.1.527 supports: xamarinios (xamarin-ios,Version=v0.0)

Wondering what the heck is “xamarin-ios,Version=v0.0”? It must be xamarinios10. We’re considering to buy SciChart but right now our build server is stuck on this error. As a workaround, we raname xamarin-ios to xamarinios10 in the lib directory but this not an option for a cloud build server.

Hi, guys

Please take look at:

So my question is

Is there a way to highlight a line of a gridlines to which the label belong? It can be a color changed or something similar that can be easily perceived by the user.

Hi, guys

I’m very sad because of you.

On my chart i’m added SCIZoomPanModifier with clip mode SCIClipMode_ClipAtExtents. And it well worked before i have updated lib to ‘2.0.1.1748’. Now it’s works the same way as SCIClipMode_StretchAtExtents. But i don’t want to zoom by scrolling at the edge of data.

Can you look at it and fix as soon as possible?

Best regards,

Working on building a candlestick chart in Swift. I have a working chart following the example. I get zoom and pan fine. But am getting an error when I swipe left on the chart. Can’t quite figure out what I’m missing. Seems like my data is unsorted but I don’t see any documentation on how it should be sorted and glad to send the repo if you like…
Thanks much – Warren

Hi everyone,

I have a scroll view containing (among others) subviews with SciChart surfaces. I use this method:

 [self.scrollView.layer renderInContext:UIGraphicsGetCurrentContext()];

… to take a screenshot of the whole scroll view (render it as a UIImage). All charts are rendered as black rectangles. Same thing happens if I use “Capture view hierarchy” in XCode – black rectangles where there should be a chart.

Any ideas?

Hello!

I am building an iOS framework that sits on top of SciChart for app developers within our company. I’d like to provide my own default SCIThemeColorProvider object for charts in my framework. Easiest way to do that is to include my own theme plist in my framework’s bundle, but I cannot currently do that (as of 2.0.0.1643) because the SCIThemeColorProvider initializer assumes it’s either in the “Charting.SciChart” bundle or the main bundle.

I’d like to propose modifying SCIThemeColorProvider to add another initializer that takes a bundle ID, like this:

/**
 * Creates theme provider based on specified style
 *
 * @param themeKey The key of style which should be used as base for this theme provider
 *
 * @param bundleIdentifier The identifier of the bundle containing the theme plist identified by 
 *                         themeKey; if nil, the main bundle is used.
 */
- (nullable instancetype)initWithThemeKey:(nonnull NSString*)themeKey bundleIdentifier:(nullable NSString*)bundleIdentifier;

The existing -initWithThemeKey: initializer would call through to this initializer with a nil bundle ID.

I have attached a patch file with this proposed change. Could this be added to an upcoming build?

Hi, guys

My x axis is SCICategoryDateTimeAxis and i’m want to draw grid line with custom period. Let’s say every four hours for data with a period of thirty minutes. What is the best way for that?

Can i redifined axis’s tickCoordinatesProvider?
Can you provide some example?
Or it only possible with axes annotations ?

Hi, guys

Is there possibility to show CursorModifier by simply changing switch state?

According to custom tooltip behaviour it is possible for SCITooltipModifier. And it’s work at v 2.0.0.xxxx

So can you provide a code with redefinitions of private Api methods for this situation?

On device, there is an unwanted border line on the SCIChartSurface. Please refer to the screenshot.

I tried removing this by setting the border width and setting it’s colour as white as below
self.surface.view.layer.borderColor = [[UIColor whiteColor]CGColor];
self.surface.view.layer.borderWidth = 2.0f;
However, this does not set the border of the SCIChartSurface.

How do I remove this unwanted border line?

Hi everyone,

What would be the easiest way of shading all vertical bands for weekend days? I’ve got two ideas:

  1. Setting major band brush won’t work because there’s no way of setting only weekend bands to be major bands (as far as I know).
  2. Using box annotations.

Problem with 2nd option is that annotations are rendered over the chart (screenshot attached). Is there a way of sending them behind columns?

Thanks,
Igor

Hey everyone,

SCIThemeColorProvider has styling properties for individual types of chart elements (annotations, axes, grid lines, renderable series). How can multiple colours be assigned to individual RenderableSeries in case there are more than one?

For example, a stacked column chart will surely have more that one data series and it appears that current implementation of SCIThemeColorProvider doesn’t take this into account from architectural point of view.

Am I missing something?

Thanks,
Igor

Hi, guys

I want to show two renderableSeries on one chart view. These series have common x-axis (SCICategoryDateTimeAxis) and separate y-axes(SCINumericAxis). Only one of y-axis is visible at chart view. Also the data series of visible renderable series updated by scrolling to left or to right. So for displaying on one view i’m using:

[y1Axis setGrowBy: [[SCIDoubleRange alloc] initWithMin:SCIGeneric(0.3) Max:SCIGeneric(0.07)]];
[y2Axis setGrowBy: [[SCIDoubleRange alloc] initWithMin:SCIGeneric(0.0) Max:SCIGeneric(5)]];

So it’s look good at start (Correct_zooming.png). But after some scrolling it decrease axis extents of invisible y-axis (decrease.png).
Or even breaks down (broken.png)

For test i’m using SCIFastOhlcRenderableSeries and SCIHorizontallyStackedColumnsCollection readerable series.
Data series for SCIHorizontallyStackedColumnsCollection is initializated like:

    [volumeSerie1 updateAt:index Y:SCIGeneric(100000 / [multiplier doubleValue])];
    [volumeSerie2 updateAt:index Y:SCIGeneric(500000 / [multiplier doubleValue])];

So can you look at it?
Or what way i should implement this behavior?

Hi, guys

My axis is SCICategoryDateTimeAxis type. And using SCIZoomPanModifier (SCIClipMode_ClipAtExtents) to scroll chart

I’m using setVisibleRangeLimit: method to clip the axis during ZoomExtents

Until v. 2.0.0.1511 it’s work like a charm. But now something had have broken. And it’s doesn’t allow me to scroll chart at right way. It show me all of the data range on chart or only left side.

So can you fix it?

I am plotting a line chart and in it I have a requirement to plot different sets of points in different colours. How can I achieve this ?

I am setting the colour as below

[[(SCIFastLineRenderableSeries*)self.renderableSeries style] setLinePen: [[SCIPenSolid alloc] initWithColor:[UIColor redColor] Width:1]];

However, this sets the colour for the whole data series in line chart.

I have attached the screenshot of the desired output.

Hi guys,

I am having difficulties setting the background of my bar chart with SCICategoryDateTime X axis since I switched to 2.0.

As far as I understand, just setting the background property of the SCIChartSurface should suffice.
These are all of the things I’ve tried:

1. [self.barSurface setBackgroundColor:[UIColor clearColor]];
2. [self.barSurfaceView setBackgroundColor:[UIColor clearColor]]; 
3. self.barSurface.renderableSeriesAreaFill = [[SCISolidBrushStyle alloc] initWithColor:[UIColor clearColor]];
4. [self.barSurface.renderSurface setIsTransparent:YES];

I didn’t find any other way of setting it, but it still remains black. Any thought on what might cause it?

EDIT: I just found out about this color setting:

[axisStyle setGridBandBrush:[[SCISolidBrushStyle alloc] initWithColor:[UIColor whiteColor]]];

The result I got was a black and white chess board, as shown on the attached picture. I really don’t understand this behaviour. If I set this gridBandBrush to nil, columns are coloured with random colours, so the chart looks like a rainbow. I understand why is this happening but shouldn’t there be a default colour in case brush is nil?

EDIT 2: While debugging using “Capture view hierarchy” in XCode I discovered that render surface is actually white inside debugger. Perhaps it will give more insight to you, it doesn’t mean much to me – I guess it’s because rendering is done on GPU and the context is not available to the debugger.

Best,
Igor

Hey guys,

Starting from 2.0 we can have dashed lines in renderable series. I was wondering can we have dashed line annotations as well?

I tried this:

verticalLineAnnotation.style.linePen = [[SCIPenDashed alloc] initWithColor:[UIColor redColor] width:2 withStrokeDashArray:@[@(10.f),@(3.f)]];

and got this build error:

Assigning to 'SCIPenStyle *' from incompatible type 'SCIPenDashed *'

Isn’t SCIPenDashed a SCIPenStyle?

Igor

Hi, guys

I have some data series like:

[[SCIXyDataSeries alloc] initWithXType:SCIDataType_DateTime
                                 YType:SCIDataType_Double
                             SeriesType:SCITypeOfDataSeries_XCategory];

Also my Y axis is kind of class SCINumericAxis

So my question is

if i’m trying add value to the series

[volumeSerie appendX:SCIGeneric(bar.time) Y:SCIGeneric([bar.volume doubleValue])];

and my bar.volume is bigger than 2 147 483 648 (float limit as i’m know). It’s leads to a axis range crash. Like on the attached image.

So what should i use to handle huge values?
Like a billions and more

  1. Is it possible to display the peak value instead of X and Y values at touch point using a modifier ? If so, how can I achieve this ? (Both Rollover and Cursor modifier only shows the X and Y values)

  2. In real time chart, since the values are updating continuously, the cursor modifier is constantly disappearing and appearing and is not stationary. How can I keep the cursor modifier always visible ?

Hi, guys

My x axis is SCICategoryDateTimeAxis class type. And it’s limited by VisiableRangeLimit like:

[xAxis setVisibleRangeLimit:[[SCIDoubleRange alloc] initWithMin:SCIGeneric(firstItem – (lastItem – priorItem))
Max:SCIGeneric(lastItem + (lastItem – priorItem))]];

Also for scrolling my content inside chart:

SCIZoomPanModifier * zpm = [[SCIZoomPanModifier alloc] init];
[zpm setModifierName:@"PanZoom Modifier"];
[zpm setClipModeX:SCIZoomPanClipMode_ClipAtExtents];

Like a description SCIZoomPanClipMode_ClipAtExtents says:
“forces the panning operation to stop suddenly at the extents of the data” – but it’s not working constantly.
Sometimes it’s allow to scroll outside the range. Like on the attached image.

So my question is how to limit scrolling by min and max value?

Best regards,
Sushynski Andrei

Hi!

I tried implementing pinch zooming for real time chart in the demo project(FIFO Performance Demo and ECG Monitor Demo) and found that it’s not possible.

I used the following code:

self.surface = [[SCIChartSurface alloc] initWithView: self.sciChartSurfaceView];
SCIPinchZoomModifier * pzm = [[SCIPinchZoomModifier alloc] init];
[pzm setModifierName:@”PinchZoom Modifier”];
self.surface.chartModifier = pzm;

If it is so, then how can I achieve it ?

Hi,

I am trying to get the index of a specific date in CategoryDateTime X axis. I was trying to use this approach:

int idxOfMaxAvgScoreDate = [[self.dataSeriesAvg xValues] indexOf:SCIGeneric(dateOfMaxAvgScore) IsSorted:YES SearchMode:SCIArraySearchMode_Exact];

but it was returning -1. My guess is that comparison operator for the DateTime type is “too precise”, so some kind of range check needs to be done, similarly to common practice when comparing two floats:

if (abs(float1-float2) < epsilon)

instead of

if (float1 == float2)

I tried using SCIArraySearchMode_Nearest, but without success – most of the times I get a column right after the one I need (desiredIndex+1).

While trying to implement index lookup myself by iterating through the dataSeries.xValues I noticed that DateTime type decoder is not there for individual elements of SCIArrayControllerProtocol. Autocompletion for line below

[[self.dataSeries xValues] valueAt:i].

offers all typed of data decoding (int16, int32, char…) except dateTime. Is this the way it is supposed to be?

I tried solving it this way:

SCIGenericDate([[self.dataSeries xValues] valueAt:i])

but the date I am getting is always 01-01-1970. This indicates that entries in the X axis are not DateTime elements, which is not true, since this is my X axis:

id<SCIAxis2D> xAxis = [[SCICategoryDateTimeAxis alloc] init];

Any help, or even just thoughts and comments, would be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Igor

Hello again! 🙂

This time I am trying to draw marker for a maximum numeric data value in chart with CategoryDateTime X axis.

I have my X axis defined like this:

id<SCIAxis2D> xAxis = [[SCICategoryDateTimeAxis alloc] init];

and I am trying to draw a marker in draw() method of a custom modifier using this code:

 id<SCIRenderPassData> data = [_rSeries currentRenderPassData];
 id<SCICoordinateCalculator> xCalc = [data xCoordinateCalculator];
 id<SCICoordinateCalculator> yCalc = [data yCoordinateCalculator];
 NSLog(@"Is category calc: %d", [xCalc isCategoryAxisCalculator]);
 double xCoord = [xCalc getCoordinateFromDate:_xValue];
 double yCoord = [yCalc getCoordinateFrom:_yValue];
 [_marker drawToContext:context AtX:xCoord Y:yCoord];

My _xValue is computed and set from outside and is for sure is a valid date on X axis for which I need to draw the marker on.

My problem is that:

  1. xCoord is always 0.
  2. NSLog line prints 0 to debug console, meaning that xCalc is not CategoryAxisCalculator. I suspect this is why xCoord is always 0.

My questions are:

  1. Am I trying to compute xCoord the right way? I need it for drawing the marker and I have a date for which I want marker to be placed on.
  2. Why [data xCoordinateCalculator] returns something that is not CategoryAxisCalculator even though my axis is a category axis? Is this expected behaviour?

Looking forward to your always useful reply. 🙂

Hi,

I’m trying to achieve the looks of DateTimeCategory XAxis as shown on uploaded screenshot.

Formatting a single row of tick labels is not a hard task (setTextFormatting). The problem arises when there are 2 rows with same frequency (days of the week and dates) and third row with lower frequency (years).

I tried using new line character in text formatting property to break the line for days and dates and it didn’t work. I also tried having two axes bound to the same data series, each one having different formatting and majorDelta, but it seems that they don’t stack up (only first one added is shown).

Any ideas?

Hi,

I have understood that you will start supporting macOS in the near future. Are we talking Q3, Q4 or 2018?

Any hint, even one with lots of caveats will be greatly appreciated…

Thanks

Hi there.

It’s has been asked here:
https://www.scichart.com/questions/question/custom-annotation

So, Is it possible to draw dashed line annotation at the current version 1.2.3.982?

Hi, guys

Is there possibility to show tooltip by simply changing switch at the settings?
Not by tapping at the chart area as it implemented now.

I’m trying to render a column chart with multiple series. I want the two series to show side-by-side. See the reference image attachment for how I want it to look.

However, when I add a second series to a surface, the two series overlap and draw over each other, such that you can ‘t see some of the column data points.

Is there a way to draw multiple series that don’t overlap?

While I’m here, a have a couple of more questions:

• Is there a way to show more of the values on the time/date series X-axis . Notice in the SciChart column chart that is attached it shows every third value on the X-axis (Jan, April, July, October). It would be great if I could show every two, or all for each data point.

• For a time/date series X-axis, can I show a different representation of the time/date values? Specifically, I want to show, e.g.

Jan 17

rather than

01-2017

Presumably one would specify a different date formatter but I only see how to do variations of “MM-dd-yyy”. I want to show values as textual rather than numeric.

• Is there a way to extend the Y-axis to go higher?
In the SciChart column chart attachment, the Y-axis goes up to 100, but the values go higher. I would like to show the the Y-axis going up to 120.

• Is there a way to change the interval of the Y-axis?
Instead of showing every 20 values, can I show every 25 values?

Thanks.

Hi, guys

it seems that i had found a mistake:

At SCICursorModifierStyle class if i try to set up axisVerticalTooltipCornerRadius property it lead to changing of axisHorizontalTooltipCornerRadius

Please take a look

Hi,

I’m trying to limit the x-axis panning up to an annotation that I’ve drawn on the graph. This annotation can be beyond the current data’s position (i.e. data’s timestamp is at 5/4/2017 11:00:00, annotation’s position is at 5/4/2017 16:00:00). Is there a method, or any way that I can use to limit the x-axis panning up to the annotation’s position instead of limiting it to the data series’ max X?

Regards.

The SciChartDemo compiles and runs just fine out of the box. If I change any of the .m files from “Objective-C” to “Objective-C++” and try to compile I have a linker error:

No matching function for call to ‘SCI_constructGenericType’
Expanded from macro ‘SCIGeneric’
Candidate function not viable: no known conversion from ‘const char [2]’ to ‘char *’ for 2nd argument

If I cast 2nd argument in the macro to (char *) I get the following error:

“SCI_constructGenericType(void*, char*)”
ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture i386
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)

Am I mistaken if I believe that this has to do something with C++ name mangling? More specifically: how can I use SCIGeneric(x) macro in Objective-C++ file?

Thanks.

Hi,

Please take a look at the attached screenshot first.

I have a chart configured to draw some data. I need to draw SCIAxisMarkerAnnotation on Y axis. And it seems that annotation has alignment by right side of axis area. Is there a possibility to change it to left side of axis area?

Hello,

Out team have several question about the framework:

  1. Is there a way to make SCIChartSurfaceView background transparent so that the user could see underlying views? We tried using background brush of clear color on SCIChartSurface and making SCIChartSurfaceView backgroundColor transparent but no avail.

  2. Is it possible to add translate/rotate/scale animation to markers/annotations from code?

  3. When using gradient brush with mountain renderable series we found a strange visual artifact (“Gradient artifact” image). Is there a way to fix it?

Best regards,
Vasiliy

Hi,

I’ve been looking through ways to have to y-Axis scale for really small changes/values.

For example, I’m attempting to plot 10 values between 0.99300 to 0.99400, and the changes between points can vary between 0.001 to 0.0001 or so (basically, really small changes)

However, my y-Axis seems to always start at 0 and the y-Axis major ticks are always at most a 0.1 difference, making the graph look flat.

I’d like to achieve the following:
– Scale to the smallest value i can scale to.
– Have my y-Axis to not necessarily start at 0.

I’ve tried the following:

Setting up y-Axis:

    self.yAxis = [SCINumericAxis new];
    [self.yAxis setStyle:axisStyle];
    self.yAxis.axisId = @"yAxis";
    [self.yAxis setGrowBy:[[SCIDoubleRange alloc]initWithMin:SCIGeneric(0) Max:SCIGeneric(0.1)]];
    [self.yAxis setAutoRange:SCIAutoRange_Always];
    [self.chartSurface attachAxis:self.yAxis IsXAxis:NO];

Regards.

Hi,

I’m attempting to plot on a mountain graph with a DateTimeAxis for the x-axis and I noticed that the plotted time is inaccurate.

The data that am attempting to put in has the following NSDate value: 2017-01-06T10:09:25+0000
Correct me if am wrong, but I believe the time on the axis that ought to be displayed should follow the device’s system timezone? In my case, it is +0800, setting the time to be about 6:09:25 pm

However, the plotted time ends up showing the point to be plotted at 2:09:25 instead.

I’ve tested with a date formatter and it displays the time as it should (6:09:25 pm).
I don’t think I configured anything regarding the axis’s time format, and the insertion of data was done as below:

[self.mountainSeries appendX:SCIGeneric(m.timestamp) Y:SCIGeneric(m.mid)];
[self.chartSurface invalidateElement];

Also, to add on, if I were to extract the XMax value from the axis (in this case, is the timestamp as above), it returns me as such: 2017-01-06 18:09:25 +0000

Thank you.
