I’m currently trialing Scichart and I’m impressed by the features although the candlecharts I’ve generated are somewhat fuzzy.
I’ve attached a screenshot showing an a chart from the examples suite vs a chart which I’ve generated. As you can see there is a clear difference between the two, in both cases it’s set to Software high speed rendering.
I took the real time ticking stock charts example as the basis for my chart where as the Scichart example in the attached screenshot uses the SCichart trader example. In the Scichart trader example custom defintions for wick colours etc… have been set, I tried to merge this into my chart to see if there would help but had difficulties as I wasn’t able to use the
settings as my chart used
with the FastCandlestickRenderableSeries being set in the view model.
So I guess the question has two parts:
Is there a reason why the chart would be fuzzy?
Is there a way to set properties such as UpWickColor when using s:SciStockChar?
Please let me know if any of the above needs clarifying.
Two things to check
You may have set FastCandlestickRenderableSeries.AntiAliasing = true (or not set it to false). This is unnecessary and will cause lines to be blended and less sharp
You may need to check the value of UIElement.SnapsToDevicePixels and UIElement.UseLayoutRounding on parent elements of the SciChartSurface. This property is important as it forces WPF to have round numbers for element sizes.
You can check the value of both of these properties and dynamically change them at runtime using WPF Snoop.
Hope this helps,
