I am trying to implement a peak detection functionality in wpf. I have a DateTime axis as X and double as Y. When I add the second series (containing the peaks) to the chart it renders the points by their index, not by their date. (picture second chart red dots)

Is there any way I can plot two series with different sampling in a way that the sample points are aligned according to their dateTime values?

I attached some of my codes below.

Hi Kristof,

Yes there is! You need to use the DateTimeAxis, not CategoryDateTimeAxis.

Please see this article showing the difference between a category + a value axis

Let me know if this helps!

Hi Andrew!

I am using Multipane charts similar to the example, and SciStockChart.
When I replace CategoryDateTimeAxis with DateTimeAxis I get an XamlParesException saying DateTimeAxis TargetType does not comply with CategoryDateTimeAxis element type.

Can I use SciStockChart with DateTimeAxis? If not, is there another alternative to it.

Best Regards,
