I’ve tried to access the values to print them in a different view, but I cant reach them. So my question is there a specific way to reach them?

I managed to be able to render the EllipsePointMarkers, but here is the thing: It only works when I declare the PointMarker in my view model inside the constructor of the XyScatterRenderableSeriesViewModel. The Style with the PointerMarkerTemplate is NOT APPLIED for some reason. Could this be a bug? Please note that in the following code in the view model I specify the color to be “Red” (ARGB(255, 255, 0, 0) but in xaml the template specifies yellow for the fill and stroke.

I absolutely need the PointMarker Template to work because I want to be able to change the color and thickness of the Scatter points during runtime via UI (function in my custom legend).

The following are code snippets from my view model and the corresponding xaml:

ChartSeries.Add(new XyScatterRenderableSeriesViewModel()
                    DataSeries = dataSeries,
                    //Stroke = color,
                    //StrokeThickness = 10,
                    IsVisible = isVisible,
                    AntiAliasing = useAntiAliasing,
                    IsSelected = isSelected,
                    XAxisId = "DateTimeAxis",
                    YAxisId = yAxisId,
                    PointMarker = new EllipsePointMarker()
                        Fill = Color.FromArgb(255, 255, 0, 0),
                        Stroke = Color.FromArgb(255, 255, 0, 0),
                        StrokeThickness = 5



    <Style TargetType="{x:Type s:XyScatterRenderableSeries}">
        <Setter Property="PointMarkerTemplate">
                    <s:EllipsePointMarker Fill="Yellow" Stroke="Yellow" StrokeThickness="15"/>

    <s:EffectConverter x:Key="EffectConverter"/>

    <DropShadowEffect x:Key="LegendDropShadow" BlurRadius="10" Direction="-45" ShadowDepth="5" Color="Black"/>

    <SolidColorBrush x:Key="LegendTextBrush"  Color="#5F5F5F"/>

    <resources:VisibilityToBooleanConverter x:Key="VisibilityToBooleanConverter"/>

    <resources:CustomCategoryDateTimeAxisLabelProvider x:Key="LabelProvider"/>

I wonder what the most efficient way is to completely reset (clean up) a SciChartGroup? I add all kinds of panes, add data series, add renderable series on different panes. Now, with a single call I like to reset the SciChartSurface to its original state (empty). I want to have all panes removed, as well as references the sciChartGroup may hold to panes, and references the panes hold to different renderable series and data series. I tried to clear ChartPaneViewModels, an observable collection that holds objects of type BaseChartPaneViewModel (which in turn implements IChildPane and ViewModelBase) but that did not have any effect. My SciChartGroup binds via ItemsSource to ChartPaneViewModels

What is your recommendation how to best reset the whole sciChartGroup?

I have multliple renderable series on one scichartsurface and each series has its own y-axis, when CursorModifier-cross moves over line/scatter point/ohlc/candle series how can I ONLY show the y-Value on the with the rendered series matching y-Axis?

With multiple rendered series its virtually impossible to determine which y-Axis value pertains to the specific point of the CursorModifier which “hit-tests” a rendered series.

Is there a simple way to only highlight the y-Value on the matching yAxis as soon as the CursorModifier hit-tests a rendered series? I do not mind to show all yValues on all yAxes when the CursorModifier does not hit-test any rendered series.

I refactored from using custom RenderableSeries to a custom RenderableSeriesViewModel which has fixed a refresh bug in the chart:

  public class CustomExclusionRenderableSeriesViewModel : BaseRenderableSeriesViewModel
     public override Type RenderSeriesType => typeof(CustomExclusionRenderableSeries);

However I am invoking MouseLeftButtonUp in the chart code behind and performing a hit test. The HitTest method is not exposed on the BaseRenderableSeriesViewModel:

 private void SciChartSurfaceMouseLeftButtonUp(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
    // Perform the hit test relative to the GridLinesPanel
    Point hitTestPoint = e.GetPosition(this.sciChart.GridLinesPanel as UIElement);

    // Get hit test the RenderableSeries using interpolation
    this.ViewModel.HitTestInfo = this.ViewModel.ExclusionSeries.HitTest(hitTestPoint, true);

Is there any way to get the series instance from the view model & hit test it?

When calling SCIThemeManager.ApplyTheme(Surface, SCIThemeManager.SCIChart_Bright_SparkStyleKey); within a the code-behind running on the iPhoneSimulator running iOS 13.2, the iOS system throws an Objective-C exception with the following details:

Foundation.MonoTouchException: 'Objective-C exception thrown.  Name: NSInternalInconsistencyException Reason: applyThemeProvider: must be implemented in subclass

Although the exact same pattern works without issue on the corresponding Xamarin.Android project and the examples that call this line seem to be OK too, it is not clear from any documentation what this issue could be. Any advice would be appreciated.

I bought a license and when I try to deploy my application it seems to be crashing. The application will build and run fine in Visual Studio. I have tried removing the scichart portions from my app and deploying and it runs fine then. I have tried following the tutorial for deployment located here:

but have not had any luck. Would anyone be able to offer any assistance with deploying with scichart?

Thank you for your time and assistance with this,

I display a waveform using Scichart DataSeries (IXyDataSeries), where waveform dots are not evenly spaced.

I want to read back a sample of this waveform (example: last 10 seconds displayed on the screen) from IXyDataSeries.

The goal is to get waveforms dots again into an array, but this time I want them to be evenly spaced (Sample rate between X is the same).

This means propably that new points will be generated/deleted by the IXyDataSeries during the resampling.

Does Scichart provide a way to do that ?

Would it be possible to receive some information on how to take the legend outside of the chart surface area? We are having an issue when the user selects more axis’ to be shown in the chart. The chart then shrinks horizontally making the legend difficult to access for removing the axis’.

A quick how to with some code example would be highly appreciated. To further highlight, this is Xamarin.iOS project we are talking about.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Best Regards

Part of our project is in labVIEW. It is very convenient to integrate Scichart as .Net assemblies into labVIEW.

Another part is C++ and CUDA, Windows only, Visual Studio 2019.
We can call scichart with managed C++ for .Net (C++/CLI).

Is there native API for C++ in Scichart?
