I’m pretty sure the answer to this is “no,” but just in case…
Is there an easy way to implement strip chart behavior by specifying a fixed X-axis range instead of a fixed number of points? I have several charts which share the same X-Axis range. I’d like these all to behave like strip charts, showing for example 10 minutes of data. But each chart will be receiving data asynchronously at different rates, perhaps not even at constant rates.
I’m guessing I’ll need to implement my own FiFo-like behavior?
Thanks for your question! We have an FAQ on this titled ‘How to have a Fixed Scrolling Time Window that works with Modifiers‘.
This is implemented in our RealTime Ticking Stock Charts example, which scrolls the latest N minutes of data always, unless you zoom in, then the scrolling pauses. All you need to do is manipulate XAxis.VisibleRange to achieve the desired effect.
You might also be interested in the SciChartSurface.MaxFrameRate property, which is very useful for strip-charts.
Update: Jan 2015
We’ve also added another example ‘How to create a Scrolling Strip Chart in SciChart‘ which uses a similar technique to manipulate VisibleRange and achieve a scrolling StripChart effect that works with modifiers.
