I want to implement a requirement to stack several different y-axes on top of a common x-axis that shows time and that all y-axes share. Like the examples “Vertically Stacked Axes”, “Multi-Pane Stock Charts” and “16-channel EEG”.
The one the is the most similar to what I need is the “Vertically stacked axes” but the lines overlap and are not truly separated (possibly implementation detail).
Now two of the examples use a SciChartGroup and several SciChartSurfaces and one uses one SciChartSurface and changes the Y-Axes.
It is a technical Chart and not used for Stocks. Like several temperature (or even mixing with a pressure) lines but in separate charts like “Vertically stacked Axes” and synced to the timeline axis.
But the y-Axes are configurable with different styles and some could be automatically adjusting the range and some not. They will not share the same visual and behavioral styles and must not overlap.
What would be the best way to go or recommended? SciChartGroup or one SciChartSurface. Would it be even possible to implement the behavior on one surface? Any alternatives?
What makes me ask the question?
I had some code in xaml and could style and databind it but the more this gets configurable and unpredictable at design time I end up creating everything in code. I think especially when using multiple SciChartSurfaces. This deprives me of the possibilities of XAML I believe. I still want to have the possibility to style and bind it without coding tons of lines.
