I want to convert XorYAxis value to total chart surface coodinate Point(X, Y), that includes the axises width too.
(Not chart modifier surface coodinate)

How can I get it?

Great Answer

First, get the point relative to the ChartModifierSurface by using our Coordinate Transformation API

Next, you can get that point relative to the parent SciChartSurface by using TransformPoint.

For example, try this:

        SciChartSurface scs;
        // Gets a coordinate on the ChartModifierSurface by datavalues 
        Point point = new Point(scs.XAxis.GetCoordinate(xDataValue),

        // Translates that point back to the parent surface
        var translatedPoint = scs.ModifierSurface.TranslatePoint(point, scs);

Let me know if this helps,

Best regards

    Your code scs.ModifierSurface.TranslatePoint(point, scs) shows error. It says that scs is not IHitTestable.

    it compiled here – maybe an error on my side. You can definitely use scs.RootGrid which is IHitTestable.

    var translatedPoint = scs.ModifierSurface.TranslatePoint(point, scs.RootGrid); worked fine. Thanks.
