I’m using Scichart v3.2, to draw scatter & line series, where the x-axis is a date (DateTime).
The requirement is that a certain x-range of each series will be drawn with a different color than the rest of the series.
However, the method signature in the API only allows axes of type ‘double’:

    Color? GetColor(IRenderableSeries series, double xValue, double yValue)

So is it still possible in some way?
If not, what would be the best way (also performance-wise) to achieve this?

P.S. As I understand that in version 4.x the API was refactored and seems to allow this, but at the moment we cannot upgrade the version.

Yes it is possible, you just need to perform a conversion as follows:

 Color? GetColor(IRenderableSeries series, double xValue, double yValue)
     DateTime xDate = new DateTime((long)xValue);

That should do it!
