I’m trying to implement leading indicators. I have OHLC series as main (RenderableSeries[0]) and when I’m adding leading series with future DateTime value they still render as non-leading.

Code snippet:

XyDataSeries<DateTime, double> ser = (XyDataSeries<DateTime, double>) chartControl.RenderableSeries[series.index].DataSeries;

                if (candles.Count <= 0 || ser == null) { return; }

                if (ser.Count == 0)
                { ser.Append(candles[0].BeginTime, candles[0].Close); series.last = 0; }
                else { ser.Update(candles[series.last].BeginTime, candles[series.last].Close); }

                //ChartData.BaseXValues не идут в будущее
                List<DateTime> time = new List<DateTime>();
                List<double> open = new List<double>();
                List<double> close = new List<double>();
                List<double> high = new List<double>();
                List<double> low = new List<double>();

                for (int i = series.last + 1; i < candles.Count && candles[i]!=null; i++)

                if (time.Count > 0)
                    ser.Append(time, close);

Hi VReuda,

CategoryDateTimeAxis looks at the index of each data-point to determine where to place it. This is by design.

If you wish to have a leading indicator, you can pre-pend the series with Y=double.NaN. We do this in our SciTrader examples to show moving averages for example.

I hope this helps,

    That works fine. And one more question: how can I change some kind of "max limit" of XAxis VisibleRange? I mean not just changing VisibleRange.Max, but setting the right border offset from the end of the main series. Is there a way to avoid scripting all VisibleRange changes manually?

    Hi there,There are a few things you can do.You can use Axis.GrowBy which adds a padding to the axis. You can use Axis.AutoRange, which zooms to fit data or leaves this manual You can use SciChartSurface.ViewportManager, which gives full control over the viewport.I hope this helps, Andrew
