I have some XyDataSeries<DateTime, double> showing some data on my chart. Also I have 2 vertical line annotations (red and blue) where I know the two DateTime values.

Is there a effective way to get the double values between this range of each XyDataSeries.

Hi there,

Yes there is, you want to use the DataSeries.FindIndex method.

int FindIndex(IComparable x, SearchMode searchMode)

Finds the index to the DataSeries at the specified X-Value, where
– x = The X-value to search for
– searchMode = The Abt.Controls.SciChart.Common.Extensions.SearchMode options to use. Default is exact, where -1 is returned if the index is not found

Then, you want to query the DataSeries.YValues[] array between these indices. make sure you cast your Dataseries to XyDataSeries<DateTime, Double> to get the strongly typed YValues array

Best regards,

    Hi, tried this but the problem is that I can only select SearchMode.Exact other modes will raise System.NotImplementedException (FindIndex() in not implemented for searchMode Nearest) . And the values from the VerticalLineAnnotations are not exact I think.Regards Markus

    this only occurs if the data in your chart is unsorted, which is a really bad idea since it reduces performance by an order of magnitude. Can you double-check?

    Checked it. The DataSeries is unsorted. Thought it's sorted. Thank you for your help!!!
