I want to use the SeriesValueModifier to show the values. However the SeriesValueModifier are always shown at the y-axis wich has the values. I would like to show the y-axis on the left side of the chart. That’s no problem. After that i want to show the SeriesValueModifier on the right side of the chart while the y-axis remains at the left sid. How can i do this?

You need to declare one hidden Y axis and set the YAxisId property to Id of this axis. Please, take a look at the following code:

    <Style x:Key="CustomMarkerStyle" TargetType="s:AxisMarkerAnnotation">
        <Setter Property="YAxisId" Value="hiddenAxis" />
        <!-- Both Background &amp; BorderBrush are bound to the SeriesColor property -->
        <Setter Property="Background" Value="{Binding SeriesColor, Converter={StaticResource ColorToBrushConverter}}" />
        <Setter Property="BorderBrush" Value="{Binding SeriesColor, Converter={StaticResource ColorToBrushConverter}}" />
        <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="White" />


        <s:NumericAxis x:Name="visibleAxis" AxisAlignment="Left" .../>
        <s:NumericAxis x:Name="hiddenAxis" Width="30" DrawLabels="False" DrawMajorTicks="False" DrawMinorTicks="False" VisibleRange="{Binding VisibleRange, ElementName=visibleAxis}" Id="hiddenAxis"/>



      <!-- SeriesValueModifier: This Provides axis markers per series, for each RenderableSeries that -->
      <!-- has SeriesValueModifier.IsSeriesValueModifierEnabled=True -->
                <s:SeriesValueModifier AxisMarkerStyle="{StaticResource CustomMarkerStyle}"/>


Also, I’ve compiled a small example for you based on our Reltime Series-Values demo. Please, find it attached below.

    I dont know why but i cant place my xaml code.
  • bochelie
    Ok Thanks.It turns out the xaml was good from the first time. I had this in my behind code: "sciChartSurface.YAxis.GrowBy = new DoubleRange(0.1, 0.1);" I see that you do that in xaml. So i removed the line from the code behind and now it works. Thanks a lot!Just one more question. In the behind code i use "IDataSeries" whil you use "IXyDataSeries". Wich one is better? There is not much information in the documentation about this.

    Hi there,Glad that you get it working! ..and regarding the question, there is no difference, because IXyDataSeries implements IDataSeries. So it's up to you: if you need to access some specific methods(such as the Insert(..) method), you would better use IXyDataSeries[TX,TY]. Also the generic version should be faster because of no boxing/unboxing is done.Best regards, Yuriy

    Hi.Is there a way to do this without having to create a hidden YAxis?I need to display more than one YAxis which also can be added and removed dynamically. So, setting the AxisMarkerStyle explicitely for a specific YAxisId is not possible in my case.Thanks a lot.
