I’m trying to render Histograms at runtime where the bins’ information like upper and lower bounds and width are known. However when I set the DataPointWidth to 0.2 for example, the bin spacing is different. Here is my code and XAML:

        // We can create a histogram with evenly spaced bins 
        // by specifying the lower bound, the upper bound, 
        // and the number of bins:
        var histogram = Histogram.CreateEmpty(values.Min(), values.Max(), numberOfBins);
        double width = (values.Max() - values.Min()) / numberOfBins;
        histogram.Tabulate(values);

        foreach (var bin in histogram.BinsAndValues)
        {
            XyDataSeries<double, double> dataSeries = new XyDataSeries<double, double>();
            dataSeries.Append(bin.Key.LowerBound, bin.Value);
            pointList.Add(new ColumnRenderableSeriesViewModel() { DataSeries = dataSeries, StrokeThickness = 2, Stroke = Colors.Gray, Fill = Brushes.CornflowerBlue, DataPointWidth = 0.2 });
        }

        ChartData = new ObservableCollection<IRenderableSeriesViewModel>(pointList);

        </s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
    </s:SciChartSurface>
</Grid>

How can I make the bin spacing the same independent of bin width? See my attachment of two different histograms with the DataPointWidth for each.

I am using the 2D Heatmap with text as my working prototype. I wish to have a secondary Axis on the opposite side of my man Axis that displays a count for that row or column. To display this information is simple enough through using the LabelProvider (although two lines maybe a bit tricky), and I can do some stuff with the TickProvider when it gets a bit too busy.

My question is on how I can position these TickLabels to be in the center of a row/column?

My first thought was I could be cheeky and set the margin value to offset it in its style but it seems it only works so far with the TickLabel just displayed below the tick.

        <Style x:Key="LeftAxisLabelStyle" TargetType="s:NumericTickLabel">
                   <Setter Property="Margin" Value="0,0,0,-30"/>
        </Style>

enter image description here

What I am trying to achieve seems to be the default positioning for column charts, and histograms. I was wondering if there is a behind the scenes option or an override I’ve missed to set this?

Alternatively annotations maybe the way to go but I get the impression that this is more for on chart labels rather than for Axis?

p.s. I think when dealing with multiple Axes, you should give an warning/error if an “Id” is not given to secondary Axis as the graph will just show blank.
