Currently, I’m using a uniform heatmap to display images taken from a monochrome camera. I’m using a RubberBandXyZoomModifier to allow to user to zoom in on a region of interest in the image. The SciChartSurface is set to be 640×480 (the image size) and is hosted in a Viewbox, so it’s size scales uniformly with the grid that it’s in. The problem I’m facing is that when I zoom in, the zoomed part of the image stretches to fit the 640×480 size, changing the pixel aspect ratio, but I want the pixel aspect ratio to stay constant so they are all square. What I want to happen is that extra space is added either on the top/bottom or left/right of the zoomed part of the image so the pixel aspect ratio stays constant. See the attached image for a visual explanation. I think I either need to change the SciChartSurface size or the GridLinesPanel size to match the zoomed area size, but I’m not sure how to go about doing that. Is there a way to achieve this? Thanks!

I am trying to show a 2D Scatter series having 4 points that form a square. Like (0;0), (1;0), (1;1) and (0;1). Is there a way to tell the chart to keep this thing square when I resize the surface, use zoom extent, rubber zoom etc? I basically need X/Y ratio to be fixed.

We are using a simple SciChart setup like the following:

        <Grid Margin="20,45,50,20">

    <!--  Create the chart surface  -->
    <s:SciChartSurface Name="SparseValuesPlot" s:ThemeManager.Theme="Chrome">

        <!--  Declare RenderableSeries  -->
            <s:FastLineRenderableSeries DataSeries="{Binding Values}" Style="{Binding PlotStyle, Converter={StaticResource plotStyleConverter}}" />

        <!--  Create an X Axis  -->
            <s:NumericAxis AxisAlignment="Bottom" GrowBy="0.1, 0.1" AxisTitle="{Binding XAxisTitle}" AutoRange="Never" VisibleRange="{Binding XRange}" />

        <!--  Create a Y Axis  -->
            <s:NumericAxis AxisAlignment="Left" GrowBy="0.1, 0.1" AxisTitle="{Binding YAxisTitle}" AutoRange="Never" VisibleRange="{Binding YRange}" />


Is there a way to fix the aspect ratio of the chart such that a unit on the x-axis is displayed with the same number of pixels than a unit on the y-axis?

Right now the chart is streched with the surrounding grid. I tried to set height and width of the SciChartSurface but this does not keep the relations because the axis label areas may take different amount of space.
