I want to implement a behavior on all axes with a mouse wheel. After quite some searching and trying I came up with a solution (possibly?).
In my control there are dynamically created one x-axis and several y-axes on one or more charts in a chartgroup.

But from the samples I get the impression the standard way would be to use a Modifier or a behavior like XAxisDragModifier (which does not use Wheel). And all tries to use a modifier did not work (for different reasons see below for some. One also is that I am getting more and more modifiers and they start to interfere with each other – like wheel on center area).

What am I trying to do and how do I think I could solve it “non-standard” way:

User Story:
User wants to change zoom (or pan) via mousewheel on axis.
(
Details just for info. Complete user story:
User can click on Axis to select it (it gets highlighted or border around it) and then the user can change via MouseWheel the Zoom or Pan.
Selecting Pan is done by pressing CTRL Key while mousewheel use. Otherwise zoom.
)

Possible Solution:
How do I think I could solve the mousewheel event capture:
Create a custom Axis:

public class CustomAxis : NumericAxis
{
    protected override void OnMouseWheel(MouseWheelEventArgs e)
    {
        e.Handled = true;
        // Do zooming or paning
    }

}

Other options I ruled out:
Why can’t i use XAxisDragModifier? Besides it does not work with wheel: It does not work for me at all. Probably because my X-Axis has an ID. But that I don’t have during compile-time. So I cannot assign it. So my XAxisDragModifier does nothing.
Why do I not use YAxisDragModifier? Same problem. Several (unknown number) of YAxes with IDs i don’t have at compile time. I would have to add them at runtime. I have a custom behavior linking VMs to Axes and creating them. But debugging shows me that the Modifiers are not available at that time so I cannot add one.

Could this work? Or is there an obvious reason not to do it this way?
I would have to do the zoom and pan functions myself (I hope I can at this place)and I am using a custom ViewportManager as well.

Hi All,

Today’s weirdness was hard to track down but I can now demonstrate it with minimal code.

As a summary to the problem – we may generate multiple user controls each containing a chart that can’t all be viewed on screen at the same time. Our solution was to wrap everything in a ScrollViewer and allow the user to scroll through them. This caused the x Axis and any Right Aligned axis to do weird things with the chart.

On careful observation we noticed that any mouse movements in the axis while dragging were being interpreted as drags on the chart area so it would zoom (or pan) accordingly instead of dragging the Axis in question. Setting the scrollviewer scrollbar visibility to disabled returned the chart to expected behavior.

Can someone tell me what we did wrong or provide a work around suggestion.

The XAML:

                        <s:XAxisDragModifier x:Name="xAxisDragModifier" IsEnabled="True" ClipModeX="None" />
                        <s:YAxisDragModifier AxisId="Left1" IsEnabled="True" />

            </s:SciChartSurface>            
        </Grid>
    </ScrollViewer>
</Grid>

I put a simple test series on from the code behind as follows:

        public void AddTestDataSeries()
    {
        XyDataSeries<int, int> testSeriesData = new XyDataSeries<int, int> { SeriesName = "Series1" };
        for(int x = 1; x < 10; x++)
        {
            testSeriesData.Append(x, x);
        }
        FastLineRenderableSeries testSeries = new FastLineRenderableSeries();
        testSeries.DataSeries = testSeriesData;
        testSeries.YAxisId = "Left1";
        testSeries.SeriesColor = Colors.Red;
        this.UserControlSciChartSurface.RenderableSeries.Add(testSeries);
    }

Any ideas anyone?

Someone recently asked the question on priority support tickets

Q: How do I have two YAxis on the left and right of the chart but with
the same VisibleRange?

e.g. how to mirror the YAxis on both sides of the chart

We are replicating the answer below for benefit of our userbase:

I would like to template items of an AxisCollection assigned to a sciChartSurface in binding of an AxisItemCollectionViewModel. But it looks like I cannot do it as Visual Studio won’t compile my tries.

What i am looking for is something like the EEG 16 channel sample. There the ListBoxItems are styled via a template which is bound to a ViewModelItem. The ListBox itsself is bound to a ViewModelCollection. Depending on how many entries there are entries in the listbox.

So I would like to do something like this:

<SciChartSurface.AxisCollection ItemsSource="{Binding MyAxisCollectionViewModels}" ItemTemplate="{StaticResource AxisItemTemplate}" />

Is this possible? I don’t know how many y-axes i will have. They are configurable by the user.

Hello,

How do I right-justify the numbers on the y-axis? The y-axis is on the left side of my chart.

Thanks,
Neville

Hi, I’m trying to position vertical line annotations on a chart. I want to position them on a visible part of the chart, but I need to use the Absolute coordinate mode as I want the annotation to move with the data as the chart is panned or zoomed.

My question is then: how can I find the currently visible extents of the X axis? If the chart is zoomed or panned I need to know what the left and rightmost visible X-axis values are (independent of the data).

On priority support tickets, a user just asked us how to show and hide the AxisTitle TextBlock without changing the AxisTitle.Text to string.Empty.

The solution uses attached properties and a small custom style, so we thought we’d post it below

Hi,
I have some special requirements to solve. First point is to align the axis title position to the top of the axis. So the title is above the axis.

Second thing is to manually edit the visible range min and max inside the axis. So that the label min and max are editable.

Is there any way to do that?

I wonder how I can disable the x-Axis from automatically re-scaling when panning a series beyond the available data range? The only time when axes scales change should be when I modify the axes scales via mouse on the respective axis itself. But when I pan a series I do not want any changes in axes scale to occur. How can I accomplish that? Thanks

I made an example based on the “Vertically Stacked Axes” from SciChart Examples. The main difference is that I can add DataSeries / YAxes on the fly.

The problem is that when I set VisibleRange and VisibleRangeLimit it does not crop the trace (as you can see on the Tan traces that are drawn on the whole surface).

Is there any way to crop the traces to VisibleRange of corresponding Axis?

take the SciChart Trader as an example, x-Axis is type of CategoryDateTimeAxis. I want a way to show the index of the time in the collection, when mouse moves over the price bar in some mode like Rollover or Cursor.

I’m trying to have a two charts which have a x-axis points (datetime) that doesn’t intersect. And i want charts was synchronized like this:
enter image description here

How you can see here upper chart doesn’t have a point at 10.12.2013, but lower has. Can i reach same effect by SciChart?

Hi,

I have some charts binded to a viewmodel. I wanted to produce a bar chart, so I want to modify the AxisAlignment.

If I specify a hardcoded alignment in the XAML, it works fine.

If I bind the alignment to the viewModel, the chart does not render, and I get the following error in the output:

 SciChartSurface didn't render, because an exception was thrown:
      Message: The specified Visual and this Visual do not share a common ancestor, so there is no valid transformation between the two Visuals.

                                </s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>

And the properties I’m binding to:

public AxisAlignment XAxisAlignment { get; private set; }

public AxisAlignment YAxisAlignment { get; private set; }

Any help is appreciated.

I am using the MVVM pattern.

I trying to manage the number of YAxes in my chart in a dynamic manner by binding the YAxes in the chart to a collection so that each time I add a new line series that line series gets its own axis.

When I do this I am getting a null reference expection.
If I hard code the YAxes or YAxis my chart loads.

Here is the xaml:

<SciChart:SciChartSurface x:Name="historicalChart" 
    RenderableSeries="{Binding HistoricalRenderableSeries, Mode=TwoWay}"
    YAxes="{Binding ChartYAxes, Mode=TwoWay}"
    SciChart:ThemeManager.Theme="ExpressionLight">
   ...
</s:SciChartSurface>

Here is the ViewModel

I tried both an ObservableCollection and a AxisCollection in my view model.

private ObservableCollection<NumericAxis> _chartYAxes = new ObservableCollection<NumericAxis>();
public ObservableCollection<NumericAxis> ChartYAxes
{
  get { return _chartYAxes; }
  set
  {
    _chartYAxes = value;
    NotifyPropertyChanged("ChartYAxes");
  }
}

private AxisCollection _chartYAxes = new AxisCollection();
public AxisCollection ChartYAxes
{
  get { return _chartYAxes; }
  set
  {
    _chartYAxes = value;
    NotifyPropertyChanged("ChartYAxes");
  }
}

Can anyone suggest a way to manage a variable number of YAxes in a chart?
