Is there a way to export the current surface to a bitmap while changing the VisibleRange ?

For example: when the XAxis is a DateTimeAxis, I want to export the chart per hour, per day or per week.

What is the best way to clone the current chart to render in memory ? Or is there a better option ?

Hi Bart,

There is, in v4.1.1 of SciChart, we have exposed a method

// SciChartSurface
protected virtual SciChartSurfaceBase CreateCloneOfSurfaceInMemory(Size newSize)

This returns a cloned chart at the specified size. If you inherit SciChartSurface you can expose or call this method.

In v3.6 there is no such method, but some people have reported success using our Serialization to serialize a chart to XML, then deseriaizle, to create a clone.

Best regards,
