Is there a way to make a screenshot from a chart without drawing the chart on screen?

I am making an application that will send an E-mail with alot of extra info, one of the attachements is a chart.
The application is running in a Windows service, so showing the chart to take a screenshot is not the way to go.

When I am sending the email I want to take the following steps:

  1. Get the data
  2. Render the data in memory (not on screen).
  3. Create an image of the chart.
  4. Include this image in my E-mail.

Can someone tell me if this is a possibility and how I can do this?

Hi Kevin

Yes it is possible. We have an API, and an example, which demonstrates this:

// WPF Export and Screenshot Options in Chart

The corresponding documentation for Screenshots and Printing in SciChart is here.

Please let me know if this helps!

Best regards,
Andrew
