Whenever I add a new vertical line annotation to my scichartsurface, it allways spawns at the top left corner, then if I zoom in/out it then immidietly moves to the right location. Do any of you have any fix so that I dont need to zoom everytime to fix the annotation positions?

Here is a snippet of my code:

                    var line = new VerticalLineAnnotation() {
                        Stroke = Brushes.Gold,
                        StrokeThickness = 1,
                        X1 = xClicked
                    var text = new TextAnnotation() {
                        HorizontalAnchorPoint = HorizontalAnchorPoint.Center,
                        X1 = xClicked,
                        Text = input,
                        Foreground = Brushes.Black,
                        Background = Brushes.Gold,
                        BorderBrush = Brushes.Black,
                        BorderThickness = new Thickness(2),
                        CornerRadius = new CornerRadius(5)

At a guess (because you have provided only a partial code sample)

You have YAxis or XAxis with custom ID (one or both)

You have not set YAxisId or XAxisId on the VerticalLIneAnnotation / TextAnnotation. Or you have set them via binding but the binding evaluates slowly (in which case use FallbackValue)

Other than that, I don’t know. If you are stuck and need help, its useful for us to see code that reproduces in a small stand-alone solution. Can you create one and send it over to the support desk?

    I fixed it by slightly adjusting the visible range (by 1/10000000th of a second) so that the view updates(?). I think only setting the visible range min and maxes isn’t enough, you need to set the doublerange one.

    Unless we can see a bug we can’t really comment. Does the problem occur in any of our examples? If YES then we have a clear reproduction. If no, can the example be modified in some way to cause the problem?

    I’ve added an extra comment as an answer, since the formatting of the comments are different than answers.

    I’m sorry. It would be really hard to recreate the bug in a clear reproduction. Since we are using a lot of classes that affects the scichartview, and as I wasn’t the one(s) that made those files I don’t know which is the one that may be causing the bug. I don’t believe the bug would happen in any of scichart’s examples.

    It may just be an unlucky interaction with our classes and scichart, so maybe its not even a bug. But we atleast able to fix it. Maybe the fix we did can help determinate what this error was.

Did not work:

            if (ViewModel.SciChartSurface.XAxis?.VisibleRange != null)  
                ViewModel.SciChartSurface.XAxis.VisibleRange = new DoubleRange((double)ViewModel.SciChartSurface.XAxis.VisibleRange.Min - 0.01f,   (double)ViewModel.SciChartSurface.XAxis.VisibleRange.Max);  


            ViewModel.ViewportManager.BeginInvoke(() => {  
                if (ViewModel.SciChartSurface.XAxis?.VisibleRange != null)  
                    ViewModel.SciChartSurface.XAxis.VisibleRange = new   DoubleRange((double)ViewModel.SciChartSurface.XAxis.VisibleRange.Min - 0.01f,   (double)ViewModel.SciChartSurface.XAxis.VisibleRange.Max);});  

Very wierd
