I see in the documentation that I need to set the boolean to true/false. But my question is how do I do this after the series has been rendered? I am using a custom legend and need to be able to toggle visibility.

  export default function Chart() {
  const [sciChartSurface, setSciChartSurface] = React.useState<SciChartSurface>();
  const [wasmContext, setWasmContext] = React.useState<TSciChart>();

  const dataSeriesMapRef = React.useRef<Map<keyof typeof chartData, XyDataSeries>>();

  React.useEffect(() => {
    (async () => {
      const { sciChartSurface, wasmContext } = await drawChart(theme, chartType);

    dataSeriesMapRef.current = new Map<keyof typeof chartData, XyDataSeries>();

    return () => sciChartSurface?.delete();
  }, [chartType]); // make sure the chart is initialized only once

  React.useEffect(() => {
    if (dataSeriesMapRef.current && sciChartSurface && wasmContext && !isLoading) {
      // const currentSeries = sciChartSurface.renderableSeries.asArray();
      // if (currentSeries) sciChartSurface.renderableSeries.clear();
      updateChartWithData(dataSeriesMapRef.current, theme, wasmContext, sciChartSurface, chartData, chartType);
  }, [theme, chartData, wasmContext, sciChartSurface, isLoading]);

  return (
    <div id="chart-container">
        dataSeriesMap={dataSeriesMapRef.current as Map<keyof typeof chartData, XyDataSeries>}
        sciChartSurface={sciChartSurface as SciChartSurface}
        wasmContext={wasmContext as TSciChart}
      <div id={DIVID} style={{ width: windowWidth, height: windowHeight }} />
      <ControlsBottom />


    export default async (theme: ExtendedTheme, chartType: string) => {
  const { sciChartSurface, wasmContext } = await SciChartSurface.create(DIVID);
  const isLightTheme = theme.palette.type === 'light';

  const xAxis = new NumericAxis(wasmContext);
  const yAxis = new NumericAxis(wasmContext);

  xAxis.labelProvider.formatLabel = (unixTimestamp: number) => {
    return new Date(unixTimestamp * 1000).toLocaleDateString('en-us', {
      month: 'short',
      year: 'numeric',
      day: 'numeric',

  yAxis.labelProvider = new CustomLabelProvider();


  if (chartType !== 'stack') sciChartSurface.chartModifiers.add(new RolloverModifier({ showRolloverLine: false }));
  sciChartSurface.chartModifiers.add(new ZoomPanModifier());
  sciChartSurface.chartModifiers.add(new ZoomExtentsModifier());
  sciChartSurface.chartModifiers.add(new MouseWheelZoomModifier());
  sciChartSurface.chartModifiers.add(new PinchZoomModifier());

  const rubberBandXyZoomModifier = new RubberBandXyZoomModifier({
    isAnimated: true,
    animationDuration: 400,
    easingFunction: easing.outExpo,
    fill: '#FFFFFF33',
    stroke: '#FFFFFF77',
    strokeThickness: 1,


  if (isLightTheme) sciChartSurface.applyTheme(new SciChartJSLightTheme());
  else sciChartSurface.applyTheme(new SciChartJSDarkTheme());
  return { sciChartSurface, wasmContext };


    export const updateChartWithData = (
  dataSeriesMap: Map<keyof typeof chartData, XyDataSeries>,
  theme: ExtendedTheme,
  wasmContext: TSciChart,
  sciChartSurface: SciChartSurface,
  chartData: ChartData,
  chartType: string
) => {
  const streamIds = Object.keys(chartData);
  const isLightTheme = theme.palette.type === 'light';

  if (isLightTheme) sciChartSurface.applyTheme(new SciChartJSLightTheme());
  else sciChartSurface.applyTheme(new SciChartJSDarkTheme());


  const stackedColumns: any[] = [];
  streamIds.forEach((s) => {
    const streamId = Number(s) as keyof ChartData;
    const streamSelectorId = streamId as keyof typeof chartData;
    if (dataSeriesMap.has(streamSelectorId)) {
      const xyDataSeries = dataSeriesMap.get(streamSelectorId);
      chartData[streamId].data.forEach((value) => {
        xyDataSeries?.append(value.timestamp, value.value);
    } else if (chartType === 'scatter') {
      const lineSeries = LineChart(dataSeriesMap, theme, wasmContext, chartData, streamSelectorId, streamId);

    } else if (chartType === 'bar') {
      const lineSeries = BarChart(dataSeriesMap, theme, wasmContext, chartData, streamSelectorId, streamId);
    } else {
      const lineSeries = StackedChart(dataSeriesMap, theme, wasmContext, chartData, streamSelectorId, streamId);


    export default (
  dataSeriesMap: Map<keyof typeof chartData, XyDataSeries>,
  theme: ExtendedTheme,
  wasmContext: TSciChart,
  chartData: ChartData,
  streamSelectorId: keyof typeof chartData,
  streamId: keyof ChartData
) => {
  const xyDataSeries = new XyDataSeries(wasmContext);
  dataSeriesMap.set(streamSelectorId, xyDataSeries);

  const obj = chartData[streamSelectorId];
  const stroke = obj.stroke as string;
  xyDataSeries.dataSeriesName = obj.label as string;

  chartData[streamId].data.forEach((value) => {
    xyDataSeries.append(value.timestamp, value.value);

  const lineSeries = new FastLineRenderableSeries(wasmContext, {
    strokeThickness: obj.strokeThickness,
    strokeDashArray: obj.strokeDashArray,
    dataSeries: xyDataSeries,
    animation: new WaveAnimation({ zeroLine: -1, pointDurationFraction: 0.5, duration: 1000 }),

  lineSeries.rolloverModifierProps.tooltipColor = theme.palette.background.paper;
  lineSeries.rolloverModifierProps.tooltipTextColor = theme.palette.getContrastText(stroke);
  lineSeries.rolloverModifierProps.markerColor = stroke;
  lineSeries.rolloverModifierProps.tooltipTemplate = (
    id: string,
    tooltipProps: RolloverModifierRenderableSeriesProps,
    seriesInfo: SeriesInfo,
    updateSize: (width: number, height: number) => void
  ) => {
    const { tooltipColor, tooltipTextColor, markerColor } = tooltipProps;
    const { formattedXValue, yValue, seriesName } = seriesInfo;
    const width = 192;
    const height = 60;

    updateSize(width, height);
    return `<svg width='${width}' height='${height}' class="root">
        <rect width="100%" height="100%" fill='${tooltipColor}' stroke='${markerColor}' stroke-width='2' />
         <svg width='100%'>
           <text dy="0" fill='${tooltipTextColor}'>
            <tspan x="15" y="20" class="title">${formattedXValue}</tspan>
             <tspan x="15" y="45" class="value">
              ${seriesName} | ${yValue.toFixed(0).replace(/\B(?=(\d{3})+(?!\d))/g, ',')}
  return lineSeries;


    let _chartData: any[] = [];
export default ({
}: {
  dataSeriesMap: Map<keyof typeof chartData, XyDataSeries>;
  theme: ExtendedTheme;
  wasmContext: TSciChart;
  sciChartSurface: SciChartSurface;
  chartData: ChartData;
}) => {
  const classes = useStyles();

  const chartRef = React.useRef<any>([]);
  const [legendData, setLegendData] = React.useState<any[]>([]);

  // _chartData = [..._chartData, ...values(chartData)];
  _chartData = values(chartData);
  _chartData = uniqby(_chartData, 'groupId');
  _chartData = uniqby(_chartData, 'streamId');

  React.useEffect(() => {
    if (_chartData.length > 0 && !isEqual(chartRef.current, _chartData)) {
      chartRef.current = _chartData;
  }, [_chartData]);

  const onClick = React.useCallback(
    (item) => {
      // const xyDataSeries = dataSeriesMap.get(160);
      const _legendData = => {
        if (x.groupId === item.groupId) x.isVisible = !x.isVisible;
        return x;


  return (
    <div className={classes.root}>
      <Paper variant="outlined" square>
        { any) => (
          <div className={classes.listItem} key={item.streamId}>
              onClick={() => onClick(item)}
              style={{ color: item.stroke }}
              {item.isVisible ? <VisibilityIcon /> : <VisibilityOffIcon />}

Inside the onClick function is where I was trying to change visibility for both series. I’ve tried multiple things without any luck. I assumed it would be as simple as getting the correct series, setting the visible property and maybe a re-render if that is even needed? Like I said any advice on a better way of handling this is welcome

I want to use user’s settings in my application. I’ve created my own window for settings with checkboxes and colorpickers.

I’ve binded my series with settings like that

            <s:FastLineRenderableSeries x:Name="tLineSeries1" StrokeDashArray="7 4" StrokeThickness="3" YAxisId="RightAxis" >
                    <Binding Source="{x:Static ProjectProperties:Settings.Default}" Path="Visibility1" />
                    <Binding Source="{x:Static ProjectProperties:Settings.Default}" Path="Color1" />

Everything is working fine and after restarting the application i get the colors and visibility of series as i want.

The problems starts after turning on ShowVisibilityCheckboxes=”true” in LegendModifier. After that, my settings dont work at all. Is there any way how can i bind checkboxes from the legends with my own created checkboxes or settings? In other words, how can i make them both to work “together”?
