When I’m writing VisibleRange=”0, 10″ it works as if I’d wrote “0, 1”.
See my video

If you have multiple axes it appears that the order given isn’t honored on the screen.
If signals A, B, C, D are inserted into a list (inserting each item at the zeroth index) the resulting list is D,C,B,A. The order of the list is ignored and order observed is incorrectly: A,B,C,D. The order of the series/y-axes should reflect the order of the list (not the order in which they were inserted).

The following example has been added which shows this. (Clicking “Insert Signal at beginning” multiple times).

Currently we are using a work-around for which any list change, all signals are removed and re-added in the desired order to get the desired result. This is quite slow and causes flickering and flashing of elements on the screen.

Its been 3 weeks since I’ve heard any response..

I evaluating Scichart for our application and have been testing the Realtime FIFO example.

I have made the following modifications to the example
– Increased number of samples added per timer tick
– Replaced a sin wave with a recording of FPS
– Swapped to DX10 render surface
– Changed Plot Theme
– Added Plot Modifiers for manipulation

When FIFO is enabled and more than 5052 points are added unusual behavior occurs, the line seems to slide backwards and faster than the plot does and there are lines connecting the start and end of the plot.

I have recorded a video that compares running with FIFO enabled vs FIFO disabled.

I forgot to add that I can get a similar but slightly different glitch by taking the example straight from the example browser and increasing the FIFO length to 10000, see attached image.

To whom this may concern:

I’m having a slight issue (bug, possibly?) with custom annotations. I have created a custom annotation with an image (XAML shown below)

<s:CustomAnnotation x:Class="Dashboard.SciChartCustomComponents.CustomAnnotations.MicrostructureAnnotation"

    <Border BorderBrush="White" BorderThickness="2" Background="Black">
            <Image x:Name="annotationImage" Stretch="None" Width="150" Height="100" Visibility="Collapsed"/>
            <TextBlock x:Name="annotationText" HorizontalAlignment="Center"/>
            <TextBlock x:Name="parameterText" HorizontalAlignment="Center" Visibility="Collapsed"/>


The image is applied with the following code (note the anchor points are bottom-right):

var annotation = new MicrostructureAnnotation
    HorizontalAnchorPoint = HorizontalAnchorPoint.Right,
    VerticalAnchorPoint = VerticalAnchorPoint.Bottom,
    IsEditable = true,
    X1 = xValue, // Both Obtained from hitpoint X- and Y-Values
    Y1 = yValue

annotation.annotationImage.Source = // some image Uri
annotation.annotationText.Text = // some text
annotation.parameterText.Text = // some other text

So this successfully shows the annotation as i liked, shown in 1.png.

Now I have a function that collapses the visibility of the image, which yields an annotation that is removed from its anchor point (although the top-left location remains the same), shown in 2.png.

If I try to move the annotation after removing the image, the anchor point is in the location of where the top-left anchor should be when the image collapses but the image is still in the wrong location, shown in 3.png.

When I finally do move the annotation, the annotation moves away from the cursor to the top-left anchor point, shown in 4.png.

Again i’m not sure if this is a bug, but could someone please advise?

Thanks kindly!

Edit: I don’t have this problem when setting the anchor points to top-left.

Using MVVM, I have an AnnotationCollection databound to the SciChartSurface.Annotations. Individual LineAnnotations are added to the collection as the application code runs.

If annotations are added while the chart is displayed, they are all drawn correctly.

However, if the chart page is reloaded (say, the user navigates to a different page and then returns to the chart page), the annotations do not always redraw. If the annotations have AnnotationCanvas set to default (AnnotationCanvas.AboveChart, I believe) they redraw correctly about 50% of the time. If the annotations’ AnnotationCanvas is set to AnnotationCanvas.XAxis, they never redraw.

All the annotations still exist in the ObservableCollection in all these cases, so they shouldn’t need to be re-created.

Is this a bug in SciChart or is there something I may be doing wrong with the annotations?
(There is only one X-Axis so no axisID is necessary.)

LineAnnotation lAnno = new LineAnnotation();
lAnno.CoordinateMode = AnnotationCoordinateMode.RelativeY;
lAnno.Y1 = 0.0;
lAnno.X1 = DataPoints;
lAnno.Y2 = 1.0;
lAnno.X2 = DataPoints;
lAnno.YAxisId = "Counts";
lAnno.Foreground = new System.Windows.Media.SolidColorBrush(System.Windows.Media.Color.FromRgb(255, 255, 255));
lAnno.Stroke = new System.Windows.Media.SolidColorBrush(System.Windows.Media.Color.FromArgb(96, 255, 0, 0));
lAnno.StrokeThickness = 2;
lAnno.AnnotationCanvas = AnnotationCanvas.XAxis;

I am adding Double.NaN into DataSeries for X-Axis synchronization.
It works fine with 3.x version.
When i have updated scichart to 4.x version, i got filled areas instead of empty areas. But, these filled areas are shown only with big count of points. Filled areas disappeared when i zoom in.
This is how i create renderableseries:

new OhlcRenderableSeriesViewModel
                    DataSeries = ohlc,
                    DrawNaNAs = LineDrawMode.Gaps,
                    AntiAliasing = false,
                    StrokeThickness = 1,
                    StrokeUp = color,
                    StrokeDown = color,
                    Stroke = color

My UI works well using 3.1.

This is the second time I have tried to use 3.2.

In my first trial, my UI just crashed when use mouse.

using the latest build of 3.2, my ui has two issues:

1) UI response to mouse roll is not smooth sometimes!

2) Some element just gets disappeared while zooming. I have captured the following video. You can see that the RED circle gets disappeared while zooming out.

I have a panel with two charts, that contains a OhlsDataSeries and theirs XAxis is DateTimeAxis. When it zooms i see a something strange:
strange stretch

My code:

<s:SciChartSurface SeriesSource="{Binding ChartSeriesViewModels}"
                   s:SciChartGroup.VerticalChartGroup="{Binding Parent.VerticalChartGroupId}"
                   ViewportManager="{Binding Parent.ViewportManager}">
        <s:ModifierGroup s:MouseManager.MouseEventGroup="23">
            <s:ZoomPanModifier ExecuteOn="MouseLeftButton"/>
            <s:MouseWheelZoomModifier />
            <s:CursorModifier ShowAxisLabels="True" UseInterpolation="False" UseLayoutRounding="True"  ReceiveHandledEvents="True"/>
            <s:ZoomExtentsModifier ExecuteOn="MouseDoubleClick"/>

        <s:DateTimeAxis VisibleRange="{Binding Parent.VisibleRange, Mode=TwoWay}"
                        TextFormatting="hh:mm dd.MM.yyyy"
                        GrowBy="0.0, 0.1"/>

        <s:NumericAxis AutoRange="Always"
                       GrowBy="0.1, 0.1"/>


And second question:
Is there any way to make the cursor sticks to the points?
