I need normal (not categorical) x-axes and hence need the SciChartSurface rather than SciStockChart but SciChartSurface does not seem to have the property “IsXAxisVisible” and a number rather vital properties. How can I create a multi pane chart group where I can use SciChartSurface and still retain the ability of, for example, a shared x-Axis?

Hi there,

SciStockChart is a specialized subclass of SciChartSurface, designed to be used in one case only – Stock Charts (financial charts) with one CategoryDateTimeAxis XAxis and one NumericAxis YAxis.

Anything that is achieved in SciStockChart can be achieved with SciChartSurface.

In SciStockChart, the IsXAxisVisible property is bound to XAxis.Visibility. Simply replace your Boolean binding to SciStockChart.IsXAxisVisible with a binding to SciChartSurface.XAxis.Visibility (using a Boolean to visibility converter).

Hope this helps,

    We're actually discussing how to make this easier for you guys, and one of the ideas is to keep the core SciChart library as a licensed component, closed source, but open source the domain-specific extensions, such as SciStockChart. That way the source would be shipped with the core library and people can see how to add or modify layers on top of SciChart. What do you think?

    Would make templating much easier. I guess I can easily work around the above but anyone with the need to write their own custom extension would most likely benefit a lot from your idea.
