Can someone please point me in the right direction (link to example maybe) on how to create a chart (SciChartSurface) programatically?

I’m interested in creating a fairly simple chart but I need to know how to do the basic things through code, especially how to handle the axis and the chartModifiers.

I’ve been searching on the forum and knowledge base but still haven’t found a good example. Does anyone know where I can find one?

Hi Daniel,

It’s pretty simple, something like this should do the trick!

var sciChartSurface = new SciChartSurface();
sciChartSurface.XAxis = new NumericAxis();
sciChartSurface.YAxis = new NumericAxis();

var xyData = new XyDataSeries<double, double>();

sciChartSurface.RenderableSeries.Add(new FastLineRenderableSeries() { DataSeries = xyData });

sciChartSurface.ChartModifier = new ModifierGroup(
     new RubberBandXyZoomModifier(), 
     new ZoomExtentsModifier());

// TODO: Call xyData.Append() and add your SciChartSurface to the visual tree

Best regards,
