When I apply the cross marker type to a scatter plot, it’s not centered correctly. It gets more off-center the thicker the stroke becomes. This tends to be the case for any mark that uses the strokeStyle parameter.

This is actually visible in the example app under “Using PointMarkers”. In the attached screenshot of the example app, I increased the cross marker thickness to 15 to show how off-center the cross is to the line. This becomes a bigger issue in a scatter series as there’s no line to reference of where the point should actually be.

Hopefully there’s a way to fix this, but if not, any help on how to apply a corrective offset would be great.

Thanks in advance for any guidance!

I use a simple box annotation to highlight a section candlesticks on a chart. Currently I only see how to set this annotation X1 and X2 to Major grid units (ie 1,2,3,4,5). Since I would like to have this box annotation fully highlight only the desired candlesticks, is there a way to offset this X1 and X2 position by 0.5 so that it would include only (and fully) the desired candles? Apologies if I have missed this in the docs somewhere but I have been unable to find anything to accomplish this.

EDIT: For my x axis I am using a CategoryDateTimeAxis

Thank you.

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"/>

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.
