Hi all,

As the title indicates, I am trying to get mouse cursor position (Coordinates) from a SciChartSurface in MVVM manner.

I have lots of data bindings to my chart properties in my View Model in the background. This following snipped is a copy of my XAML code in which I have all the data bindings set:

<sci:SciChartSurface Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0"
                         RenderableSeries="{Binding SciChartSeriesViewModels}"     
                         Padding="0,8,0,2"                                         
                         sci:ThemeManager.Theme="BrightSpark"                                       
                         YAxes="{Binding SciChartYAxesCollection,Mode=TwoWay}"                                         
                         AutoRangeOnStartup="True"                                       
                         Annotations="{Binding ChartAnnotations}"                                     
                         Name="ApplicationSciChart"                                       
                         ChartModifier ="{Binding ChartModifierGroup}"
                         BorderBrush="LightSlateGray"
                         BorderThickness="1"
                         Visibility="{Binding ChartVisibility}">

        <sci:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
            <sci:TimeSpanAxis AxisTitle="Time"
                              AutoRange="Once" GrowBy="0.03,0.001"
                              TextFormatting=""/>
        </sci:SciChartSurface.XAxis>

  </sci:SciChartSurface>

As can be seen from the code above, the ChartModifier property is one of the items that has Data binding to an instance of a ModiferGroup I have created in my View-Model in the background. The following code is a method that adds members to that ModiferGroup (called ChartModiferGroup in my View-Model):

 private void CreateChartModifiers()
    {
        var rubberBandXyZoomModifier = new RubberBandXyZoomModifier
        {
            ExecuteOn = SciChart.Charting.ChartModifiers.ExecuteOn.MouseLeftButton,
            RubberBandFill = (SolidColorBrush)(new BrushConverter().ConvertFrom("#33FFFFFF")),
            RubberBandStroke = Brushes.SteelBlue, 
            RubberBandStrokeDashArray = new DoubleCollection {2.0, 2.0}
        };

        var zoomPanModifier = new ZoomPanModifier
        {
            ExecuteOn = SciChart.Charting.ChartModifiers.ExecuteOn.MouseMiddleButton,
            ClipModeX = SciChart.Charting.ClipMode.None
        };

        var yAxisDragModifier = new YAxisDragModifier
        {
            DragMode = SciChart.Charting.AxisDragModes.Scale
        };

        var xAxisDragModifier = new XAxisDragModifier
        {
            DragMode = SciChart.Charting.AxisDragModes.Pan
        };

        var mouseWheelZoomModifier = new MouseWheelZoomModifier();

        var zoomExtentsModifier = new ZoomExtentsModifier
        {
            ExecuteOn = SciChart.Charting.ChartModifiers.ExecuteOn.MouseDoubleClick
        };

        var cursorModifier = new CursorModifier
        {
            ReceiveHandledEvents = true,
            ShowAxisLabels = false
        };


        var probeline = new VerticalLineAnnotation()
        {
            Stroke = Brushes.LightSlateGray,
            IsEditable = true,
            ShowLabel = true,
            LabelPlacement = LabelPlacement.Axis,
            Visibility = Visibility.Visible,
            IsHidden = false,
            IsEnabled = true,
            X1 = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(-100),
            YAxisId = "Triggered",
            StrokeDashArray = new DoubleCollection { 2.0,2.0},
            StrokeThickness = 1
        };

        var verticalSliceModifier = new VerticalSliceModifier
        {
            IsEnabled = true,
            ShowAxisLabels = true,
            Style = probeline.Style
        };
        verticalSliceModifier.VerticalLines.Add(probeline);


        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(rubberBandXyZoomModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(rubberBandXyZoomModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(zoomPanModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(yAxisDragModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(xAxisDragModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(mouseWheelZoomModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(zoomExtentsModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(verticalSliceModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(cursorModifier);
    }

What I am trying to do next, is to add functionality in my application, such that I can add more VerticalSliceModifiers to my ChartModifierGroup when a button is pressed. In order to do that, I will require having access to the Mouse cursor position of my SciChartSurface to set the X1 property of the VerticalLineAnnotation, that would be used for the VerticalSliceModifiers (to be created).

In simple words, every time I press a button, I need the position of the mouse pointer to get captured and used as the location of the new VerticalSliceModifer that I am going to create.

I have already read many of the examples and documentation of Sci-Chart such as: Vertical Slice Tooltips Example. However, in this example, the mouse pointer location is accessed is under the xaml.cs and not inside an actual View-Model.

I was wondering if anybody could let me know how I can get access to my SciChartSurface mouse pointer position using true MVVM model.

I need the length of the plot area in pixels. I don’t have access to SciChartSurface and it’s XAxis field. I have only ObservableCollection and my NumericAxisViewModel. Is it possible to get the length from them? Or what is the best way to get it in my case?

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?

Hi all,

I am trying to save a copy of my chart in form of a “Png” image. However I keep getting the following exception:

“Element already has a logical parent. It must be detached from the old parent before it is attached to a new one”

I was wondering if anyone could help me passing through this.

Here is what I do:

I have a main chart surface in my program of which properties are bound to my ViewModel. For instance, as can be seen from the snippet below, my SciChartSurface’s YAxes is bound to an AxisCollection that resides in my ViewModel. Same thing is done for the RenderableSeries, Annotations, ChartModifierGroup, ChartVisibility and the XAxis properties of my Chart Surface:

<sci:SciChartSurface Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0"  
                         RenderableSeries="{Binding SciChartSeriesViewModels}"    
                         Padding="0,8,0,2"                                         
                         sci:ThemeManager.Theme="BrightSpark"                                       
                         YAxes="{Binding SciChartYAxesCollection, Mode=TwoWay}"                                         
                         AutoRangeOnStartup="True"                                       
                         Annotations="{Binding ChartAnnotations}"                                     
                         x:Name="ApplicationSciChart"                                       
                         ChartModifier ="{Binding ChartModifierGroup}"
                         BorderBrush="LightSlateGray"
                         BorderThickness="1"
                         Visibility="{Binding ChartVisibility}"
                         XAxis="{Binding SciChartXAxis}">
    </sci:SciChartSurface>

Now, In order to save a copy of my chart into a “Png” file, I created a new SciChartsurface in my Viewmodel. This newly created chart is desired to be rendered in the memory so I can save it as an Image (Very similar to what is instructed in: Screenshots, Printing and Export to XPS Traingin module. Somewhere in my ViewModel, after I generated all the required data for creating my chart, I call a function to form a new SciChart (rendered in memory) and perform the saving action:

private void SaveChart()
    {
        SciChartSurface AppSciChart = new SciChartSurface()
        {
            RenderableSeries = SciChartSeriesViewModels,
            XAxis = new TimeSpanAxis(),
            YAxes = SciChartYAxesCollection,
            ChartTitle = "Rendered in memory",
            Annotations = ChartAnnotations
        };

        var parent = AppSciChart.Parent;
        AppSciChart.Width = 1920;
        AppSciChart.Height = 1080;

         ThemeManager.SetTheme(AppSciChart, "BrightSpark");
         AppSciChart.ExportToFile("C:\\Chart.png",SciChart.Core.ExportType.Png, false);

    }

The RenderableSeries, YAxis and Annotations of the Chart Surface in the above code (AppSciChart) are the same as the ones I used for my main chart in my XAML code (First Snippet above).

My main chart surface in my application shows up fine, and performs what it is supposed to, but as soon as the SaveChart() is called, the program stops with an Unhandled Exception: System.InvalidOperationException: ‘Element already has a logical parent. It must be detached from the old parent before it is attached to a new one.’

I was wondering if anybody could let me know what I am possibly missing here!

Many thanks!

Hi, Support team.

I’m using MVVM pattern and trying to implement multi-chart which can insert Box Annotations at the same time into each chart .
So I’m testing in SciChart Example [“DigitalAnalyzerPerformanceDemo”] to know how to implement this.

But what i only got is just looping through and create annotation for each ChannelViewModels.

In the Demo, the VisibleRange ‘XRange’ is shared to all the ChannelViewModels by binding TwoWay-mode in ParentViewModel without looping for each ChildViewModels.
Like this, I wonder is there ways to apply BoxAnnotation all the ChannelViewModel at the same time by binding in ParentViewModel.

    <!-- BottomAxis -->
        <s:SciChartSurface Grid.Column="1">
            <s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
                <s:NumericAxis Height="30"
                               AxisAlignment="Bottom"
                               VisibleRange="{Binding XRange, Mode=TwoWay}"                 
                               LabelProvider="{StaticResource TimeLabelProvider}"
                               MajorTickLineStyle="{StaticResource TimeAxisMajorTickLineStyle}"
                               MinorTickLineStyle="{StaticResource TimeAxisMinorTickLineStyle}"/>
            </s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
            <s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
                <s:NumericAxis Visibility="Collapsed"/>
            </s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
        </s:SciChartSurface>
    </Grid>

    <!--  Create an X Axis with GrowBy  -->
     <s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
           <s:NumericAxis Style="{StaticResource HiddenAxisStyle}"
                    VisibleRangeLimitMode="Min"
                    VisibleRangeLimit="0,0"
                    VisibleRange="{Binding DataContext.XRange, Mode=TwoWay, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType=ItemsControl, AncestorLevel=2}}"/>
     </s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>

I tried to bind annotation in ParentViewModel like XRange Binding method, But it doesn’t work.


This is View.xaml.

I saw in tips and tricks for performance the use of

scichartsurface.suspendupdate

before something is added to the dataseries. But usually I don’t have access in ViewModel to surface. How can I suspendupdate in the ViewModel when updating the series?

Is dataseries.SuspendUpdate used for this?

Hi Sci Chart,

I am using WPF with MVVM.

What i want to achieve is by reading the rollover modifier current hit point data, when user click left click, i want to add VerticalSliceModifier in the graph based on the hit point.

Attach is my code from xaml and viewmodel.

I have two issues which are:
“if (DistanceSeriesData.SeriesInfo.Count > 0)”, i always get zero count of seriesinfo.

In DistanceVerticalLines?.Add(new VerticalLineAnnotation(), the added Distance Vertical Lines data did not reflect in graph.

Hello,

I have a scichart and bound to its VM class. Inside this VM there is a Highlights property.

On the MainWindow, I am placing two of this charts with their own VM instance.

The problem is that when the Annotations is bound, it is only drawn on the last chart as shown in the image.

If I manually code in xaml the annotations (no binding) then the annotations are drawn in both charts.

How can I make it work with the binding?

Thanks

Hello,
I’ve got Annotations ViewModels collection (BoxAnnotationViewModel, VerticalLineAnnotationViewModel, LineAnnotationViewModel) bound by AnnotationsBinding. Every Annotation ViewModel has properties set to:

CoordinateMode = AnnotationCoordinateMode.Absolute
IsEditable = true
DragDirections = XyDirection.XYDirection
ResizeDirections = XyDirection.XYDirection

My goal is to move and resize every annotation on SciChart surface only by integer value. Is there any way to achieve this?

Best regards,
Anna

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,

My goal is to have the user select a series with a mouse click, and to see which series was selected while following the MVVM pattern. I am filling in the DataSeries using a LineSeriesSource attached behaviour.

What I tried so far is to attach to the SelectionChanged event of a Renderable series with an Interaction Trigger.

This doesn’t work:

        <SciChart:SciChartSurface.ChartModifier>

            <SciChart:ModifierGroup>

                <SciChart:SeriesSelectionModifier >
                    <i:Interaction.Triggers>
                        <i:EventTrigger EventName="SelectionChanged" >
                            <i:InvokeCommandAction Command="{Binding Path=cmdSelectedSeriesChanged}" CommandParameter="{Binding Path=SelectedSeries}"/>
                        </i:EventTrigger>
                    </i:Interaction.Triggers>
                    <SciChart:SeriesSelectionModifier.SelectedSeriesStyle>
                        <Style TargetType="SciChart:BaseRenderableSeries">
                            <Setter Property="Stroke" Value="White"/>
                            <Setter Property="StrokeThickness" Value="2"/>
                        </Style>
                    </SciChart:SeriesSelectionModifier.SelectedSeriesStyle>
                </SciChart:SeriesSelectionModifier>

        </SciChart:ModifierGroup>
        </SciChart:SciChartSurface.ChartModifier>

This works, but is not what I want since it’s not MVVM:

<SciChart:SciChartSurface.ChartModifier>

                <SciChart:ModifierGroup>

                    <SciChart:SeriesSelectionModifier SelectionChanged="SeriesSelectionModifier_SelectionChanged">

                        <SciChart:SeriesSelectionModifier.SelectedSeriesStyle>
                            <Style TargetType="SciChart:BaseRenderableSeries">
                                <Setter Property="Stroke" Value="White"/>
                                <Setter Property="StrokeThickness" Value="2"/>
                            </Style>
                        </SciChart:SeriesSelectionModifier.SelectedSeriesStyle>
                    </SciChart:SeriesSelectionModifier>

            </SciChart:ModifierGroup>
            </SciChart:SciChartSurface.ChartModifier>

Interaction Propety cannot be attached to SciChartSurface.RenderableSeries.
I also tried attaching the Interaction Property to an individual DataSeries, which is definitely not what I want to do, but it doesn’t work either.

I’ve created an application with MVVM in mind and managed to create a simple, working graph with SciChart that displays the data needed.
I’ve also seen some features (https://www.scichart.com/customer-case-study-blueshift-one-system/) which we’ll be planning on implementing, designing it to fit our own needs of course.

I’m wondering if there are some limitations (and perhaps improvements in later releases), that we could keep in mind while continuing to plan and develop our application with SciChart and MVVM?

To whom this may concern:

I’d like to refer to the “Spline Scatter Line Chart” example in the SciChart Examples package. If I were to make this a CustomRenderableSeriesViewModel that I can set in a ViewModel class, how would I go about doing that?

I am using SciChart v4, and here’s what I know so far:

  1. CustomRenderableSeriesViewModel : BaseRenderableSeriesViewModel
  2. ViewType = typeof(CustomRenderableSeries)

My code so far is:

public class CustomRenderableSeriesViewModel : BaseRenderableSeriesViewModel
{
    public override Type ViewType => typeof(CustomRenderableSeries);
}

How would I go about setting the IsSplineEnabled property of the CustomRenderableSeries through the CustomRenderableSeriesViewModel class?

FYI: I have looked here and the Worked Example – CustomRenderableSeries in MVVM link goes to the SciChart v5 User manual.
Additionally, this is a duplicate of this issue on Stack Overflow (since I thought you were still fielding questions on there). Feel free to answer on either or both.

Can you please advise?

Hi,

I’m evaluating SciChart. Our app requires that series and axes be dynamically added to the chart. So, I kind of followed the “Create Stock Charts Realtime Ticking Stock Charts” example to use the SeriesSource. The Append() method is used to add a data point in a worker thread. The total number of data point is just 10 and each data point arrives at about every second.

I saw that the line was not drawn until the last data point was added. The line chart was exactly what I expected. So, everything (SeriesSouce, axes, series, renderable series, bindings) seems to be working except that the line was not drawn real time. I added ViewportManager.InvalidateElement() right after the Append() method. But, the result was the same. I didn’t do anything special when the last data point arrived. So, I’m not sure why SciChart was able to show the line chart at the end.

Am I missing anything here?

Best Regards,

I’m trying to create a CustomRenderableSeries in MVVM. I’ve got my custom renderable series working fine outside of MVVM, and it seems pretty simple to wrap it with a ViewModel using the API.

However, the series isn’t displaying (Draw not getting called, and ranges not changing, so it’s not just failing to draw anything).

It’s pretty simple (and I’m going to add caching for the pens and brushes later):

public class CustomXyScatterRenderableSeriesViewModel : BaseRenderableSeriesViewModel
{
    // Tell SciChart what type of RenderableSeries you want to instantiate
    public override Type RenderSeriesType
    {
        get { return typeof(CustomXyScatterRenderableSeries); }
    }
}


public sealed class CustomXyScatterRenderableSeries : CustomRenderableSeries
{
    protected override void Draw(IRenderContext2D renderContext, IRenderPassData renderPassData)
    {
        XyzPointSeries pointSeries = renderPassData.PointSeries as XyzPointSeries;

        // PointMarkers are created once and cached
        var pointMarker = this.GetPointMarker();

        //if (pointMarker == null)
        //    return;

        int setCount = pointSeries.Count;

        IBrush2D brush = renderContext.CreateBrush(Brushes.Red, 0.5);
        IPen2D pen = renderContext.CreatePen(Colors.Transparent, false, 0, 0);
        // Iterate over points collection and render point markers
        for (int i = 0; i < setCount; i++)
        {
            double xPoint = (double)pointSeries.XValues[i];//pointSeries[i].X;
            double yPoint = (double)pointSeries.YValues[i];//pointSeries[i].Y;
            double zPoint = (int)pointSeries.ZPoints[i];

            // Get coordinates for X,Y data values
            var x1 = (int)renderPassData.XCoordinateCalculator.GetCoordinate(xPoint);
            var y1 = (int)renderPassData.YCoordinateCalculator.GetCoordinate(yPoint);
            var z1 = (int)zPoint+2;

            //var pointMarkerRect = new Rect(0, 0, pointMarker.PixelWidth, pointMarker.PixelWidth);
            //double xOffset = pointMarkerRect.Width / 2;
            //double yOffset = pointMarkerRect.Height / 2;

            // Draw PointMarkers
            renderContext.DrawEllipse(pen, brush, new Point(x1, y1), z1 * 2, z1 * 2); //(new Rect(x1 - xOffset, y1 - yOffset, pointMarkerRect.Width, pointMarkerRect.Height), pointMarker, pointMarkerRect);
        }
        brush.Dispose();
        pen.Dispose();
    }
}

When directly, all is good:

<s:SciChartSurface x:Name="SciChartSurface"
                   DebugWhyDoesntSciChartRender="True"
                   GridLinesPanelStyle="{StaticResource GridLinesPanelStyle}"
                   DataContext="{Binding ElementName=userControl}"

                   ViewportManager="{Binding ViewportManager}"
                   ChartTitle="{Binding Title}">

    <s:SciChartSurface.RenderSurface>
        <s3D:Direct3D10RenderSurface />
    </s:SciChartSurface.RenderSurface>

    <s:SciChartSurface.RenderableSeries>
        <helpers:CustomXyScatterRenderableSeries DataSeries="{Binding Data}"  />
    </s:SciChartSurface.RenderableSeries>

    <s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
        <s:NumericAxis AxisTitle="{Binding XAxisLabel}" LabelProvider="{StaticResource SINumericLabelProvider}"/>
    </s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
    <s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
        <s:NumericAxis AxisTitle="{Binding YAxisLabel}" LabelProvider="{StaticResource SINumericLabelProvider}"/>
    </s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
    <s:SciChartSurface.ChartModifier>
        <s:ModifierGroup>
            <s:MouseWheelZoomModifier x:Name="mouseWheelZoomModifier" />
            <s:RubberBandXyZoomModifier ExecuteOn="MouseRightButton" IsAnimated="True" />
            <s:ZoomPanModifier />
            <s:ZoomExtentsModifier ExecuteOn="MouseDoubleClick" />
        </s:ModifierGroup>
    </s:SciChartSurface.ChartModifier>
</s:SciChartSurface>

But when using the View Model, it fails to display:

<s:SciChartSurface x:Name="SciChartSurface"
                   DebugWhyDoesntSciChartRender="True"
                   GridLinesPanelStyle="{StaticResource GridLinesPanelStyle}"
                   DataContext="{Binding ElementName=userControl}"

                   ViewportManager="{Binding ViewportManager}"
                   ChartTitle="{Binding Title}"
                   RenderableSeries="{s:SeriesBinding Series}">

    <s:SciChartSurface.RenderSurface>
        <s3D:Direct3D10RenderSurface />
    </s:SciChartSurface.RenderSurface>

    ....
</s:SciChartSurface>

I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, as there doesn’t seem to be much more to it!

Edit: More info, in the code behind, I’m binding to this data for testing:

    public XyzDataSeries<float, float, int> Data { get; set; }
    public ObservableCollection<IRenderableSeriesViewModel> Series { get; set; }

    public LineChart()
    {
        this.DataContext = this;
        Data = new XyzDataSeries<float, float, int>();
        Data.Append(50, 50, 10);
        Data.Append(100, 100, 15);
        Series = new ObservableCollection<IRenderableSeriesViewModel>();
        Series.Add(new CustomXyScatterRenderableSeriesViewModel() { DataSeries = Data });

        InitializeComponent();
    }

Hi,

I am having a problem with two SciChartSurface’s sharing the same ViewModel instance. I am using the Master-Detail View pattern to provide a list of charts (Collection of SciChart surfaces) with continuously updating data from a device) within a Listbox container on the left-hand side. On the right-hand side I provide the current selected chart with extended size and some extra controls.

The visual appearance of the SciChartSurface (shared across both sides) is defined via data template

<Window.Resources>
    <local:WorkspaceViewModel x:Key="WorkspaceViewModel" />
    <DataTemplate x:Key="ChartDataTemplate">
        <Border MinHeight="200">
            <visuals:SciChartSurface DebugWhyDoesntSciChartRender="True"
                                     visuals:ThemeManager.Theme="BrightSpark"
                                     SeriesSource="{Binding ., Mode=TwoWay}">
                <visuals:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
                    <visuals:NumericAxis VisibleRange="0.0, 10.0"
                                         AutoRange="Always" />
                </visuals:SciChartSurface.XAxis>

                <visuals:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
                    <visuals:NumericAxis VisibleRange="-1.0, 1.0"
                                         AxisAlignment="Left"
                                         AutoRange="Always" />
                </visuals:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
                <visuals:SciChartSurface.ChartModifier>
                    <visuals:SeriesValueModifier ReceiveHandledEvents="True"></visuals:SeriesValueModifier>
                </visuals:SciChartSurface.ChartModifier>
            </visuals:SciChartSurface>
        </Border>
    </DataTemplate>
</Window.Resources>

and is used within the ListBox and ContentControl in the following way

<Grid DataContext="{StaticResource WorkspaceViewModel}">
    <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
        <ColumnDefinition Width="200*"
                          MinWidth="225"
                          MaxWidth="700" />
        <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto" />
        <ColumnDefinition Width="375*" />
    </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>

    <GroupBox Grid.Column="0">
        <ListBox x:Name="ListBox"
            SelectedItem="{Binding SelectedChart}"
                 HorizontalAlignment="Stretch"
                 VerticalAlignment="Stretch"
                 ItemsSource="{Binding Charts}"
                 HorizontalContentAlignment="Stretch"
                 ItemTemplate="{StaticResource ChartDataTemplate}" />
    </GroupBox>
    <GridSplitter Grid.Column="1"
                  Width="5"
                  HorizontalAlignment="Right"
                  VerticalAlignment="Stretch"
                  ResizeBehavior="PreviousAndNext" />
    <GroupBox Grid.Column="2">
        <ContentControl x:Name="ContentControl"
            Content="{Binding SelectedChart}"
                        ContentTemplate="{StaticResource ChartDataTemplate}" />
    </GroupBox>
</Grid>

The ViewModel (WorkspaceViewModel) contains two properties:

ObservableCollection<ObservableCollection<IChartSeriesViewModel>> Charts
public ObservableCollection<IChartSeriesViewModel> SelectedChart

So far, so good. Once populated with live chart data, the ListBox displays all charts with live updating of the DataSeries. The issue I encounter is that once a chart in the ListBox is selected, the Detail View gets updated and continues displaying live data updates, but the ListBox entry stops updating. Obviously the sharing of the same instance of IChartSeriesViewModel in two different SciChartSurface views (via the ViewModel property SelectedChart) is causing trouble.

What am I missing here? I am currently using SciChart 3.0.

Many thanks,

Silvio

I think this is a pretty simple question but i am not sure what i am missing.I have a toggle button on my legend that is intended to allow the users to select all the series or deselect all the series.
the button essentially goes through the Renderable series view models and set the IsSelected to either true or false, this approach however, doesn’t work. I looked at the SelectionModifier and i can see that has a protected DeselectAll method and i am thinking to leverage that to solve this use case.

what is the best solution to accomplish this? isn’t this functionality something that perhaps be standard and could just be turned on?

I’m implementing a toggle between joined and separated axes for my series and I’ve encountered a problem with my SeriesValueModifiers. The modifier seems to be connected to “DefaultAxisId”, when I have my series linked to an axis with that ID the values show up as expected. However, when I separate my series to individual axes the modifiers no longer appears.

Is it possible to collect and show all my SeriesValueModifiers on one axis (keeping the others invisible)? Or perhaps show modifiers on all the axes and stack them on top of each other, keeping labels invisible.

This is the code I’ve got right now:

Adding an axis in my constructor, this one will be used when all the series are using the same axis.

ChartYAxes.Add(new NumericAxis()
{
    Visibility = Visibility.Visible,
    AutoRange = AutoRange.Always,
});

Then I add a new axis for each series.

ChartYAxes.Add(new NumericAxis
{
    Id = tagName,
    Visibility = Visibility.Collapsed,
    AutoRange = AutoRange.Always
});

var renderableSeries = new FastLineRenderableSeries
{
    YAxisId = IsIsolatedCharts ? tagName : "DefaultAxisId"
};

Toggling between these works great, but I need the value labels for this to be useful in any way.

EDIT: In case it’s relevant, here’s the code for toggling.

private void SplitAxes()
{
    var count = Series.Count;
    for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)
    {
        var series = Series[i];
        var name = series.DataSeries.SeriesName;
        //The axes are also added to a dictionary for easy access.
        _axisDictionary[name].GrowBy = new DoubleRange(count - i - 1, i);
        series.RenderSeries.YAxisId = name;
    }
}

private void JoinAxes()

Hello, SciChart Team!
i have an issue using mouse drag event ( RubberBandXyZoomModifier, ZoomPanMidifier). the message says “NullReferenceException in SciChart.Charting.dll ” or “Thread.cs not found” from time to time.
after some experiments i figured out that the app starts to crush after i change XAxis type .
i have a simple mvvm user control used to display both arrays of double and datebound data, XAxes of SciChart Surfase is bound to an observable collection of IAxis elements. if i need to change chart type i clear this collection and create an axis of desired type (DateTimeAxisViewModel or NumericAxisViewModel). after that the series can be added, but zooming causes crash with nearly to no info.

i attached a solution, which lacks only scichart dlls in order to run (hopefully), Window_Loaded method has a commented line which changes chart type and makes app crush on zooming, would be nice if you checked it out.
Thanks in advance!

We keep getting asked What’s the best practice way to suspend the SciChartSurface in a multi-pane stock chart demo.

We have multiple ways of doing this.

By far the most effective and thread-safe way to do this is to call SuspendUpdates directly on the SciChartSurface. But how to do this in a ViewModel?

Hi,

I’m creating a CustomChartModifier which I am able to hook to a SciStockChart (a template item in a SciChartGroup MVVM) and now I’m having difficulties in adding the BoxAnnotation to the Chart.

This is the code I’m using in my ChartModifier and placing a breakpoint shows me that indeed the code runs through this method, however, I do not see any BoxAnnotation on my chart? I’ve even tried adding the Height and Width properties without any further success. Other CustomModifiers to draw Lines and Ellipses works without problems. Do BoxAnnotations work differently?

I’m looking to have the the user be able to draw a BoxAnnotation on the chart, free hand / dynamically.

SimpleBoxAnnotationModifier.cs

public override void OnModifierMouseDown(ModifierMouseArgs e)
{
        base.OnModifierMouseDown(e);

        var resources = new AnnotationStyles();
        // x:Key="BoxAnnotationStyle" TargetType="s:BoxAnnotation"
        var style = (Style)resources["BoxAnnotationStyle"];

        _annotationCreation = new AnnotationCreationModifier () { AnnotationType = typeof(BoxAnnotation), AnnotationStyle = style };

        this.ModifierSurface.Children.Add(_annotationCreation);
}

AnnotationStyles.xaml

<ResourceDictionary xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
                xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
                xmlns:s="http://schemas.abtsoftware.co.uk/scichart"
                x:Class="ChartModifierBinding.AnnotationStyles">

<Style x:Key="BoxAnnotationStyle" TargetType="s:BoxAnnotation">
    <Setter Property="BorderBrush" Value="#279B27"/>
    <Setter Property="Background" Value="#551964FF"/>
    <Setter Property="BorderThickness" Value="1"/>
    <Setter Property="IsEditable" Value="True"/>
</Style>

Thanks for any pointers or tips!

I am trying out SciChart ( and WPF ) for a large dataset and till so far very pleased with the results. I have followed the example as described here http://support.scichart.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/17258/0/creating-a-custom-scichartoverview-with-many-series-using-the-scrollbar-api and can successfully view my bound data and everything is perfect for the first instance.

However, when I assign this usercontrol to different tabs they still somehow share data about the viewstate ( the overview window does not resize, and the slider thing in front of it stays at the same values. My guess is that it has to do with the messages in ActualSizePropertyProxy , but since I am new to SciChart and WPF I was hoping that maybe someone here knows what it is.

Thanks.

Hi there,

We are looking for a high-performance charting library, hence Im testing scichart and I am very excited about it.

Our application has an very abstract processing mechanism which categorize incoming data and dynamically adds channels to the plot. Each sample is – like we call it – a ProcessedData object which is a base class containing extented information about the sample like “is valid” or “is out of range”. Eg. if measureing a voltage, we need to mark data points on the chart that are “out of range” or similar.
I’d thought to start with the “DragHorizontalThreshold” which uses the RedIfOverThresholdPaletteProvider to change the color of the plot.
Do you have an idea if it is possible to implement a custom PaletteProvider which takes respect of an IsValid-property? Acutally i do not have a clue how to.

Thanks.

I’m trying to set the visible range property of a CategoryDateTimeAxis through MVVM. I’m following the general instructions detailed here for converting between pixel & data coordinates on the axis:

https://www.scichart.com/questions/question/categorydatetimeaxis-in-mvvm#sabai-inline-nav

I have the following code in my viewmodel:

XAxis.OnBeginRenderPass();
var calc = XAxis.GetCurrentCoordinateCalculator();
var coordCalc = calc as ICategoryCoordinateCalculator;

XAxis is a CategoryDateTimeAxis injected from the view. I call OnBeginRenderpass as I saw in another forum post that this will ensure that the CoordinateCalculator is initialized.

calc shows in the debugger as:

  • calc {A.} Abt.Controls.SciChart.Numerics.CoordinateCalculators.ICoordinateCalculator {A.}

The coordCalc variable ends up assigned to NULL, as the ICoordinateCalculator< double > cannot be cast to the interface.

How do I accomplish the above?

Thanks, Asher

Hello!

I am getting started with SciChart and attempting to use it for a project I’m working on.

I am attempting to make a 3D scatter plot whose data is populated through a ViewModel.

Below is a my xaml:

            </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.ChartModifier>
        </s3D:SciChart3DSurface>
    </Grid>
</UserControl>

And below I declare and define my scatter plot in the viewmodel (the scatterSeries is an XyzDataSeries3D set somewhere else) :

    PositionalErrorTestModel.RenderSeries3DViewModels = new ObservableCollection<IRenderableSeries3DViewModel>();
PositionalErrorTestModel.RenderSeries3DViewModels.Add(new ScatterRenderableSeries3DViewModel
            {
                PointMarker = new SpherePointMarker3D { Fill = System.Windows.Media.Color.FromRgb(0x78, 0xC3, 0), Size = 5, Opacity = 1 },
                DataSeries = scatterSeries
            });

The chart appears, but the data does not. Is there something I’m missing? Do I need to explicitly call an update to the chart? Because the page the chart is on and the chart does get loaded before the data is populated.

Please let me know if you need to know anymore information.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hello Andrew & Co.

I need some guidance in an attempt to add some required functionality to my SciChart application.

A requirement has been brought to my attention where a user wants to do a graph over lay from a different time snap shot . This is useful for comparison reasons, where the engineer wants to compare a previous successful execution of a process with a current running one.

  • One part of the solution is to save the dataseries info from a finite
    time period in the past.
  • Second part is that the overlaid trend (dataseries) need to be time
    XAxis independent but YAxis relative.

I am looking at two different scenarios let me see what you guys think:

  1. Overlaid historic static trend on existing chart surface
  2. Historic static trend in a new chart surface (smaller format) on the
    bottom of the current chart surface being displayed

How should I best approach such an implementation ? The application is using the MVVM pattern. I have adhered to the pattern pretty religiously so far

Hopefully that makes sense to describe what I am trying to accomplish.
Appreciate your support and expert guidance in this matter

Thanks
Anders

I noticed that there are problems when I try to add data series, create renderable series, or annotations while the view that hosts the scichartgroup and/or scichartsurface(s) is/are not yet initialized/rendered. Could this be a bug? After all it should not matter when the view is rendered; when it is rendered its elements bind to the matching properties of its viewmodel, no?

This poses problems for me because I am forced to take the viewmodel-first approach. So, when I create an instance of my viewmodel and then invoke methods in the viewmodel that add data series and render such I am experiencing errors (the rendered series is not displayed on the chart, though annotations strangely are).

I identified the problem to be 2-fold, one is that I have to create renderable series on the UI thread (solved that, no issue) but my other big problem is that the view is actually not instantiated/rendered unless the view is in focus/visible which is not the case during runtime when data series are added via viewmodel.

How can I solve this problem?

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;

Markers.Add(lAnno);

Hi,
I’m experimenting with the LegendModifier and want to control which RenderableSeries are shown via the “LegendItemTemplate” approach. The idea is to add a specific tagging class to the RenderableSeries.DataSeries.Tag and use the content inside the LegendItemTemplate which I define in the Window.Resouces.

The tagging Class:

public class DataSeriesTag
{
    public string LegendText { get; set; }
    public bool ShowLegend { get; set; }
}

The LegendItemTemplate:
<Window.Resources>


<Grid.ColumnDefinitions>

</Grid.ColumnDefinitions>

            <!--<CheckBox Width="16" Margin="5,0,0,0"
                HorizontalAlignment="Left"
                VerticalAlignment="Center"
                IsChecked="{Binding RenderableSeries.IsVisible, Mode=TwoWay}"
                Visibility="{Binding RenderableSeries.DataSeries.Tag.ShowLegend, Converter={dxmvvm:BooleanToVisibilityConverter}}" />-->

            <s:PointMarker Grid.Column="1" Margin="5,0,0,0" Width="40" Height="10" VerticalAlignment="Center" HorizontalAlignment="Center"
              DataContext="{Binding RenderableSeries}"
              DeferredContent="{Binding LegendMarkerTemplate}"
              Visibility="{Binding ShowSeriesMarkers, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType=s:SciChartLegend}, Converter={dxmvvm:BooleanToVisibilityConverter}}" />

            <TextBlock Margin="5,0,5,0"
     Grid.Column="2"
     HorizontalAlignment="Left"
     Text="{Binding RenderableSeries.DataSeries.Tag.LegendText}" />

        </Grid>
    </DataTemplate>
</Window.Resources>

As long as I declare the SciChartSurface.ChartModifier in XAML, it works perfect.
The proplem raises when I bind the ModifierGroup to a ViewModel Property and try to build the LegendModifier there. How can I assign the LegendItemTemplate in the ViewModel?:

legendModifier = new LegendModifier(){
            ShowLegend = true,
            ShowVisibilityCheckboxes = false,
            LegendItemTemplate = ??????
        };
        TheModifiers.ChildModifiers.Add(legendModifier);

Kind regards
Martin

Hi,

CompositeAnnotation works perfectly and easy to use, but I need it in MVVM. CompositeAnnotationViewModel looks the same, but it is not visible. This is my code:

AnnotationViewModels.Add(new CompositeAnnotationViewModel()
{
    Annotations = new ObservableCollection<IAnnotationViewModel>()
    {
        new VerticalLineAnnotationViewModel
        {
            VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Stretch,
            Stroke = Colors.Blue,
            StrokeThickness = 2,
            IsEditable = true,
            StrokeDashArray = new DoubleCollection() { 2, 2 },
            CoordinateMode = AnnotationCoordinateMode.Relative,
            X1 = 0
        },
        new VerticalLineAnnotationViewModel
        {
            VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Stretch,
            Stroke = Colors.Blue,
            StrokeThickness = 2,
            IsEditable = true,
            StrokeDashArray = new DoubleCollection() { 2, 2 },
            CoordinateMode = AnnotationCoordinateMode.Relative,
            X1 = 1
        }
    },
    IsEditable = true,
    X1 = 3,
    X2 = 5
});

What is my mistake?

Hi,

Could you provide some Mvvm examples that include:

1) Mvvm bubble chart where the Fill color is defined on the series view model
2) custom tooltips per point where the tooltip string is defined on the point view model

I have both of these kind of working using a workaround based on the obsolete SciChartSurface.SeriesSource property, but now I’m trying to migrate to SciChartSurface.RenderableSeries and the proper Mvvm API and I cannot find all the elements I need.

Cheers
Felix

I’ve been moving a project over to using MVVM, but I’ve found the IsStaticAxis option I was using in the NumericAxis doesn’t exist in the NumericAxisViewModel. Is it not possible to make the axis static with the View Models?

Hi! I have problems with visible range managing of a polar plot

The code in xaml:

<s:SciChartSurface graphModule:PlotLengthHelper.PlotLength="{Binding PlotLength, Mode=OneWayToSource,   UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}" 
                       x:Name="ChartSurface"
                       SizeChanged="ChartSurface_OnSizeChanged"
                        ChartTitle="{Binding ChartTitle}"
                       s:ThemeManager.Theme="BrightSpark"
                        Annotations="{s:AnnotationsBinding Annotations}"
                       RenderableSeries="{s:SeriesBinding Series}"
                       XAxes="{s:AxesBinding XAxes}"
                       YAxes="{s:AxesBinding YAxes}"

First example. The code of the axis:

    var yAxis = new PolarYAxisViewModel {AutoRange = AutoRange.Never};
    YAxes.Add(yAxis);

Changing the VisibleRange of the axis has no any effect on the visible range of the graph. It sets automatically in the very first time and remains the same.

Second example.

    var yAxis = new PolarYAxisViewModel {AutoRange = AutoRange.Always};
    YAxes.Add(yAxis);

Changing the data (using line series) again has no any effect on the visible range of the graph. Again, it sets automatically in the very first time and remains the same.

Any suggestion on how to fix it? Especially the first case is required. Thanks.

Getting an exception when trying to add tooltip template MVVM style to a blox plot. The chart also contains a scatter plot which should not be styled. That works fine, hoverwer, when I move the mouse over a box in the box plot, the exception is thrown.

I want to keep the styling, I just want to write something different than the default text.

The template:

  <DataTemplate DataType="scalarPlot:ToolTipData" x:Key="BoxSeriesTooltipTemplate">
    <TextBlock>
      <Run Text="Max:      " />
      <Run Text="{Binding Maximum}" />
      <LineBreak />
      <Run Text="P90:       " />
      <Run Text="{Binding P90}" />
      <LineBreak />
      <Run Text="Median: " />
      <Run Text="{Binding Median}" />
      <LineBreak />
      <Run Text="P10:       " />
      <Run Text="{Binding P10}" />
      <LineBreak />
      <Run Text="Min:       " />
      <Run Text="{Binding Minimum}" />
      <LineBreak />
    </TextBlock>
  </DataTemplate>

The binding:

      <Style TargetType="s:BaseRenderableSeries" x:Key="BoxSeriesStyle">
        <Setter Property="s:TooltipModifier.TooltipTemplate" Value="{StaticResource BoxSeriesTooltipTemplate}"/>
        <Setter Property="s:TooltipModifier.IncludeSeries" Value="True"/>
      </Style>

The modifier:

<s:SciChartSurface.ChartModifier>
      <s:ModifierGroup>
        <s:TooltipModifier IsEnabled="True" ShowTooltipOn="Always" ReceiveHandledEvents="True" TooltipLabelDataContextSelector="{Binding ToolTipDataContext}"/>
      </s:ModifierGroup>
    </s:SciChartSurface.ChartModifier>

The view model:

    private static IRenderableSeriesViewModel CreateBoxPlotViewModel(BoxPlotDataSeries<int, float> boxPlotDataSeries)
    {
        return new BoxPlotRenderableSeriesViewModel
        {
            DataSeries = boxPlotDataSeries,
            Stroke = Colors.SteelBlue,
            Fill = new LinearGradientBrush(Colors.White, Colors.LightSteelBlue, new System.Windows.Point(0, 0), new System.Windows.Point(0.5, 1)),
            StyleKey = "BoxSeriesStyle"
        };
    }

The data context selector:

    public Func<SeriesInfo, object> ToolTipDataContext
    {
        get
        {
            return seriesInfo =>
                   {
                       return seriesInfo switch
                       {
                           BoxPlotSeriesInfo boxInfo =>
                               new ToolTipData
                               {
                                   Fill = seriesInfo.Fill,
                                   Stroke = seriesInfo.Stroke,
                                   Maximum = (float) boxInfo.MaximumValue,

Previously I used AnnotationCreationModifier and my custom annotations were added by one left button mouse click on the chart surface (the annotation was added to the collection and the event handler “AnnotationCreated” fired). Now I’m trying to switch to using the mvvm pattern and I have problems adding my custom annotations using AnnotationCreationModifierMVVM.

Now it works like this:
1) I click (mouse left button) on the chart surface to add an annotation and it is added to the collection and displayed.
2) I click on the chart surface again, and only after that the event handler “AnnotationCreated” is called.

If I carry out some external manipulations with the added annotation between first and second click (for example, moving to the given coordinates by the button click), annotation moved, but when I hover the mouse over the chart surface, it returns to it’s original position. And this behavior will be until I click again on the chart surface so that the event handler “AnnotationCreated” is called.

The built-in annotations work fine though (for examle, VerticalLineAnnotationViewModel or HorizontalLineAnnotationViewModel are successfully added to the collection and call the event handler “AnnotationCreated” by one click on chart surface).

Is it possible to somehow fix this behavior of the custom annotation so that it is added to the collection and triggers an event “AnnotationCreated” for one click on the chart surface, as was the case with AnnotationCreationModifier? I am attaching an example code:

Hi,

I have several chart panes that share a mouse group and a shared visual range (I inject the shared visual range of type IRange in the constructor of the pane view model). I then set the XAxis visual range to the shared visual range inside each pane view model. However, when I use either of the below approaches outside of the pane view model to adjust the min and max of shared visual range, the Xaxis.VisualRange of each pane does not reflect that change.

Approach A: _sharedVisualRange.Min = ….; _sharedVisualRange.Max = …
Approach B: _sharedVisualRange.SetMinMax(….)

Neither approach actually impacts the XAxis.VisualRange.Min/Max.

Initially when I created the XAxis in code I set its VisualRange equal to the shared visual range that was injected via constructor, like :

XAxis = new CategoryDateTimeAxis()
{
……
……
VisualRange = _sharedVisualRange,
…..
};

Please note that all the above refers to code in the view model. I bind the XAxis in the pane view model to the XAxis of the surface in xaml.

My entire synchronization heavily relies on the assumption of this working, but it does not.

We’re using ReactiveUI and bindings in code-behind. We’re now upgrading from SciChart v3 to v6 and we’re wondering how to use the SeriesBinding in code-behind like this:

public partial class BarChartView : ReactiveUserControl<sBarChartViewModel>
{
    public BarChartView()
    {
        InitializeComponent();

        this.WhenActivated(disposable =>
        {
            this.OneWayBind(ViewModel,
                            vm => vm.SeriesSource,
                            view => view.BarChart.SeriesSource)
                .DisposeWith(disposable);

            this.OneWayBind(ViewModel,
                            vm => vm.LabelProvider,
                            view => view.FaciesAxis.LabelProvider)
                .DisposeWith(disposable);

            this.OneWayBind(ViewModel,
                            vm => vm.TooltipDataContext,
                            view => view.TooltipModifier.TooltipLabelDataContextSelector)
                .DisposeWith(disposable);

            this.OneWayBind(ViewModel,
                            vm => vm.XAxisRange,
                            view => view.FaciesAxis.VisibleRange)
                .DisposeWith(disposable);
        });
    }
}

Now the IChartSeriesViewModel and SciChartSurface.SeriesSource is deprecated so we have to move to IRenderableSeriesViewModel instead and then bind to SciChartSurface.RenderableSeries. But how can we convert from IRenderableSeriesViewModel to IRenderableSeries here?

I’m trying to build a chart control that adheres to MVVM and noticed that I have the option to use NumericAxis or NumericAxisForMvvm, but I’m not sure exactly what the differences would be. I couldn’t really find anything in depth on them in the documentation but maybe I missed something.

Is anyone aware of any differences? I’m assuming NumericAxisForMvvm would be best for what I’m wanting but I’m not exactly sure why.

Thanks!

Hi there,

I am relatively new to C# and scicharts so you will have to forgive me a little.

In the project I am working on, I am trying to add dynamic renderable series as the user selects items in a tree. I have looked through the online tutorials and forums but still am having trouble. I am creating my own renderable series view model class derived off of LineRenderableSeriesViewModel. I found documentation that I needed to override the ViewType property and set it to a FastLineRenderableSeriesForMvvm.

When I am creating these objects to add to the ObservableCollection which is bound to my scichart surface, I can set the PointMarker and its properties, but not the SelectedPointMarker properties.

XAML:

    <s:SciChartSurface Style="{StaticResource BasicSciChartSurfaceStyleRateVsTime}"
                       ViewportManager="{Binding RateVsTimePlot.Manipulator.Viewport}"
                       Name="RateVsTime" x:FieldModifier="private"
                       ZoomHistoryManager="{Binding RateVsTimePlot.ZoomHistory}"
                       PreviewMouseLeftButtonDown="PreviewRateVsTimeMouseLeftButtonDown"
                       PreviewMouseLeftButtonUp="PreviewRateVsTimeMouseLeftButtonUp"
                       RenderableSeries="{s:SeriesBinding RateVsTimePlot.RenderableSeriesViewModels}"
                       local:YAxesCollectionBehaviour.AxisSource="{Binding RateVsTimePlot.YAxesViewModels}"
                       local:YAxesCollectionBehaviour.AxisStyle="{StaticResource AxisStyle}"/>         

Style:

<Style x:Key="ProdLineStyle" TargetType="s:FastLineRenderableSeriesForMvvm">
    <Setter Property="s:TooltipModifier.IncludeSeries" Value="False"/>
    <Setter Property="SelectedPointMarker">
        <Setter.Value>
            <s:EllipsePointMarker Fill="{Binding SeriesColors.ProductionColor}"
                                  Stroke="{Binding SeriesColors.ProductionColor}"
                                  Width="6" Height="6">
            </s:EllipsePointMarker>
        </Setter.Value>
     </Setter>
</Style>

ViewModel :

        var renderableSeries = new GenericRenderableSeriesViewModel
        {
            DataSeries = dataSeries.DataSeries,
            YAxisId = dataSeries.AxisId,
            IsSelected = IsSelected,
            SeriesColors = _dataColors[fluidRateType],
            DisplayEnabled = AnalysisInteractionMode.IsLineManipulationDisabled,
            PointMarker = new EllipsePointMarker(),
            StyleKey = "ProdLineStyle"
        };

        renderableSeries.SetRenderableSeriesColorSettings();

        renderableSeries.DataSeries.SeriesName = fluidRateType.ToString();
        return renderableSeries;

public void SetRenderableSeriesColorSettings()
    {
        Stroke = SeriesColors.ProductionColor;

        if (PointMarker == null) return;

        PointMarker.Stroke = SeriesColors.ProductionColor;
        PointMarker.Fill = SeriesColors.ProductionColor;
        PointMarker.Height = PointNonSelectedHeight;
        PointMarker.Width = PointNonSelectedWidth;
    }

When I run my app, I see what I am expecting by default, but when I do a point selection rectangle, the behavior is not correct. I only see the line. The points with in the rectangle disappear.

I am trying to move away from having the style set the selectedPointMarker, and doing it through code in the view model just like the function above as users will be able to change these properties in the future. But so far I haven’t found a way to do either.

Am I using the correct classes, or do I need to override something else? Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
Rylan

Hi
I’m trying to use AvaloniaUI with .NET Core 3.1 to create an application using SciChart, but I get XAMLIL error when trying to add a SciChartSurface following the code from the tutorial. I used a standard Avalonia MVVM Application template when creating the project.

This is the code:

<UserControl xmlns="https://github.com/avaloniaui"
             xmlns:s="http://schemas.abtsoftware.co.uk/scichart"
             xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
             xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
             xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"
             mc:Ignorable="d" d:DesignWidth="800" d:DesignHeight="450"
             x:Class="FF_DataVis_Avalonia_MVVM.Views.TabControlView">

    <Grid>
        <!-- Bind to ChartViewModel.ChartTitle etc -->
        <s:SciChartSurface ChartTitle="{Binding ChartTitle}">
            <s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
                <s:NumericAxis AxisTitle="{Binding XAxisTitle}"/>
            </s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
            <s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
                <s:NumericAxis AxisTitle="{Binding YAxisTitle}"/>
            </s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
        </s:SciChartSurface>
    </Grid>
</UserControl>

And the error I get is:
“XAMLIL: Unable to resolve type SciChartSurface from namespace http://schemas.abtsoftware.co.uk/scichart Line 27, position 4″
which is the first s:SciChartSurface entry.

Any ideas what might be wrong? Does SciChart not work with any framework regardless of using .NET Core 3.0?
I have tried changing between Core 3.0 and 3.1, which does nothing.

Hi,

I’m trialing SciChart and want to chart an XY Series where the X values are DateTime. I want to be able to switch between plotting the data as a single series on a DateTimeAxis and plotting multiple series per Date on a NumericAxis by splitting the original series into 1 series per day with the X value being the time of day in hours (Integer). Is there an easy way to switch between a DateTime and Numeric axis from my View Model – I’ve tried creating two axis with seperate Id’s and changing the visibility but it didn’t work

Regards

Hi,

I’ve been finding lots of examples of creating Custom Chart Modifiers however they are not using a SciChartGroup using a DataTemplate and not in a MVVM scenario.

I know MVVM is the preferred structure for WPF solutions, however it does introduces some complexities as well as using DataTemplates of a SciChartGroup, therefore, would someone please be so kind as to point me in the right direction for an example or two so that I can see how this all could work together?

I’m looking at Custom Chart Modifiers by use of a CustomModifier class. As this will give me the most flexibility in terms of what I would like to do in the future and I would also like to be able to switch between modifiers, such as Panning, Zooming and drawing annotations onto the chart.

Thanks everyone!

David

P.S. Andrew, if this requires a developer on your side to hash this out for an hour or so, let me know and I’ll be more than happy to pay for it.

Hello,

I’m trying to display a vertical line annotation on a chart using MVVM.

In order to make it work I’ve (All the INotifyPropertyChanged are managed via the BaseViewModel)

public class GraphSurfaceBaseViewModel : BaseViewModel
{
    /// <summary>
    /// A list of annotations
    /// </summary>
    public ObservableCollection<IAnnotationViewModel> Annotations { get; private set; }

 ...
}

I create annotation that way

Graph.Annotations.Add(new VerticalLineAnnotationViewModel()
            {
                X1 = TimeOfComment,
                ShowLabel = true,
                StrokeThickness = 2,
                XAxisId = "Xaxis",
                YAxisId = "Yaxis1",
                AnnotationLabels = new ObservableCollection<AnnotationLabel>() { new AnnotationLabel() {Text = "mon test", LabelPlacement = LabelPlacement.TopRight } }

            });

And the binding to the scichartsurface is :

<s:SciChartSurface   
...         
Annotations="{s:AnnotationsBinding Annotations}"            
</s:SciChartSurface>

I’ve double check that my x axis and y axis have the same ID as the annotation.
The problem is I want to display several annotation labels but they are not appearing. I suspect a problem via the AnnotationsBinding which is not taking the AnnotationLabels from the VerticalLineAnnotationViewModel.

What I got :
enter image description here

What I want (paint skill here):
enter image description here

For the what I want, I can draw a simple vertical bar by settings showLabel = false but I suppose that all the label I previously added to the
AnnotationLabels will not be shown, that’s why I let it.

Thank you for any help.

There doesn’t seem to be a corresponding IRenderableSeries3DViewModel object like there is in the 2D charts. What am i suppose to bind to the RenderableSeries property of the SciChart3DSurface? If I bind to a

ObservableCollection<IRenderableSeriesViewModel>

object, then I don’t see a corresponding SurfaceMeshRenderableSeries3DViewModel object similar to LineRenderableSeriesViewModel for 2D?

A simple example of series binding using 3D charts would be great!

Hi sir,

We would like to build a real time updated stackedcolumn chart in mvvm mode.
Is that possible? (x-axis on the left side)(y-axis on the bottom side which can keep update with only 10mins range)

I wonder can I use the StackedColumnRenderableSeriesForMvvm?
I found out this control but have no idea how to use it…

Hello support team,

We are currently starting a complete redesign of our SciChart implementation from V3.x to V5.x. In V5.x the MVVM pattern is now supported and we would like to use this.
Our main focus is on the performance of the SciChart component. Now the question arises whether the use of the MVVM API is questionable for exactly this reason (performance).
Does it make a big difference whether I address the series directly or via the MVVM API?
Thank you very much for your support!

Hi,

I’m looking to draw a BoxAnnotation onto a SciChartGroup ItemTemplate SciStockChart where the user will left mouse click, drag to define the size and releases to create the BoxAnnotation.

How should I go about doing this? Should I be looking at CustomModifiers or CustomAnnotations?

Any pointers will be very helpful

Thanks

Hello,

how can i implement a vertically stacked y axis chart like in your example (WPF Chart Vertically Stacked YAxis) with MVVM and a varying number of y axes. Your example has a fixed number of y axes and the needed YAxesPanel is directly implemented in your xaml code. What is the best way to achieve the same result with a varying number of y axis?

Best regards
Alexander

Hi,
I’m prototyping an application with two visible data series and an individual Y-axis for each data series. See the enclosed image.
The Stroke color of each data series, the TickTextBrush and the BorderBrush of the y-axis are updated by normal data Binding through the MVVM pattern.
The problem is that I am not able to data bind the Stroke property of the MajorTickLineStyle for the individual Y-axis.
Do You know if there is a workaround for this through data binding?
The project is enclosed.

Hi SciChart team,

I have built a xyscatter chart with DateTime type X-Axis and Double type Y-Axis,
and built boxannotations to mark areas.

May I set the x-Axis value in the tooltip?
Or can I show properties of each item which means every point in the xyscatterseries, and customize the tooltip content style like adding the description of every properties.
