I’m having some trouble because all the points in a DataSeries have the same value, and those values are rendered outside the surface. (By constant values I mean that all the values on the y axis are equal to 19.8).

If I put a zoom modifier on the chart and zoom out, I can find my values, but when the chart is displayed for the first time, they are not visible.
This makes me think that the scaling of the y axis is not calculated correctly on the chart.

I have attached a code example.

Hi Straliciuc,

This can be resolved by setting a YAxis.GrowBy value as follows:

<s:SciChartSurface x:Name="sciChartSurface" s:ThemeManager.Theme="BrightSpark" >
            <s:LegendModifier x:Name="legendModifier"/>
            <s:MouseWheelZoomModifier />
            <s:ZoomPanModifier  />

    <!-- Defines the renderable series, which map 1:1 to data-series. R-Series may be styled -->
        <s:FastLineRenderableSeries SeriesColor="Red" YAxisId="yAxis1"/>

    <!-- Defines the XAxis -->

    <!-- Defines the YAxis -->
        <s:NumericAxis TickTextBrush="red"  AxisAlignment="Left" Id="yAxis1" >
            <s:DoubleRange Min="0.1" Max="0.1"/>

Note that the calculation to generate the YAxis range is as follows:

  1. Get data Min, Max of the axis
  2. If Min == Max, expand the range using GrowBy. Max = max+GrowBy.Max and Min = Min – GrowBy.Min

UPDATE: This issue was fixed in v2.0 or later of SciChart. It will now automatically expand the range around constant values even without a GrowBy.

Hope this helps!
