Please help to provide a tutorial example to implement IThemeProvider interface in order to make a custom theme.

Thanks,

Hi Tanmay,

Thanks for your inquiry. Actually, we are going to introduce the capability to add custom themes in SciChart v3.2.

In the meantime, there is a workaround to customize themes now. You need to call ThemeManager.GetThemeProvider and get the ThemeColorProvider for a particular theme and just apply your desired values. Please, take a look at the following code:

// Pass "" or "ExpressionDark" to change the color scheme of the default theme. 
// To change schemes of the other standard themes, pass in corresponding name.

ThemeColorProvider tcp = ThemeManager.GetThemeProvider("");

tcp.GridBackgroundBrush = Brushes.White;
tcp.GridBorderBrush = App.ColorToBrushConverter("#FFF0F0F0");
tcp.SciChartBackground = Brushes.White;
tcp.MajorGridLinesBrush = App.ColorToBrushConverter("#FFF0F0F0");
tcp.MinorGridLinesBrush = App.ColorToBrushConverter("#FFF0F0F0");
tcp.TickTextBrush = App.ColorToBrushConverter("#FF818181");
tcp.RolloverLineStroke = App.ColorToBrushConverter("#A49CA9B6");
tcp.DefaultAxisMarkerAnnotationBackground = Brushes.Black;
tcp.DefaultAxisMarkerAnnotationForeground = Brushes.White;

UPDATE Nov 2014

We now have a ThemeProvider example over at the article titled How to Create a Custom Theme for SciChart

enter image description here

Hope this helps!

    What is 'app' in this example?

    It doesn't matter. basically you need to assign a SolidColorBrush to GridBorderBrush with hex code equal to #FFF0F0F0 (etc)... hope that helps :)
