I have a DateTimeAxis.

While I can see a way to template the format the text for all the axis tick labels, I need a way to completely override what is being rendered for each item. I want, for example, today’s date to be in bold, and to apply other text/buttons below the axis label conditionally, depending on logic specific to that date.

Is this possible?

I’m using the YAxes property of the chart to data bind to a collection of NumericAxisViewModels. Is there a way to rotate the tick labels in this scenario. I can’t define a style in XAML and then assign it to the Axis because the axis is created in scichart somewhere. All I have is the axis view model. I have a LabelProvider but it doesn’t seem to support rotation unless I access the ParentAxis. Ultimately I would like to rotate some vertical axis and not other but I might be able to live with rotating all of them.

I have tried defining a style in xaml that applies to all numeric axis but it didn’t work:

<Style TargetType="{x:Type s:DefaultTickLabel}">
        <Setter Property="LayoutTransform">
            <Setter.Value>
                <RotateTransform Angle="-90"/>
            </Setter.Value>
        </Setter>
    </Style>

Adding a LabelProvider sort of works but seems a little hacky and doesn’t set the scale appropriately ( I have to zoom to extends to see the labels). Is this the way I am supposed to do it?

public override string FormatLabel(IComparable dataValue) {
        var style = new Style(typeof(DefaultTickLabel));
        style.Setters.Add(new Setter(DefaultTickLabel.LayoutTransformProperty, new  RotateTransform(-90.0)));
        ParentAxis.TickLabelStyle = style;

Hi, guys

Please take look at:
http://prntscr.com/gmmib5

So my question is

Is there a way to highlight a line of a gridlines to which the label belong? It can be a color changed or something similar that can be easily perceived by the user.

Best regards,

Update: Please remove my previous question, I did not input the code correctly

I have a collection of line charts that use FastLineRenderableSeries, and they all share the same View.xaml. I’m trying to change the font size for the Y-axis tick labels in the view but for some reason it gets ignored.

This is the view for the container for all the charts:

<UserControl x:Class="....SciCharts.MainView"
<DockPanel >
    <Grid>
            <ItemsControl ItemsSource="{Binding ComponentCharts}" Grid.IsSharedSizeScope="True">
                <ItemsControl.ItemsPanel>
                    <ItemsPanelTemplate>
                        <UniformGrid Rows="2"/>
                    </ItemsPanelTemplate>
                </ItemsControl.ItemsPanel>
                <ItemsControl.ItemTemplate>
                    <DataTemplate>
                        <Grid>
                            <ContentControl Content="{Binding}"/>
                        </Grid>
                    </DataTemplate>
                </ItemsControl.ItemTemplate>
            </ItemsControl>
    </Grid>
</DockPanel>

And this is the view for each individual line chart:

<UserControl x:Class="SciCharts.LineChartView"
<UserControl.Resources>
    <converters:BooleanToCollapsedVisibilityConverter x:Key="VisibilityConverter"/>
    <converters:ReverseBooleanToCollapsedConverter x:Key="ReverseVisibilityConverter"/>
    <Style x:Key="AxisLabelStyle" TargetType="s:DefaultTickLabel">
        <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Black"/>
        <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="2.0"/>
        <Setter Property="HorizontalAnchorPoint" Value="Left"/>
    </Style>
</UserControl.Resources>
<DockPanel>
    <s:SciChartSurface RenderableSeries="{Binding LineChart.SeriesCollection}">
        <s:SciChartSurface.XAxes>
            <s:CategoryNumericAxis AxisTitle="Time" DrawMajorBands="False" AutoRange="Always" DrawLabels="True" />
        </s:SciChartSurface.XAxes>
        <s:SciChartSurface.YAxes>
            <s:NumericAxis DrawMajorBands="False" AxisAlignment="Left" AxisTitle="Rate" AutoTicks="True" AutoRange="Always" TickLabelStyle="{StaticResource AxisLabelStyle}"/>
        </s:SciChartSurface.YAxes>
    </s:SciChartSurface>
</DockPanel>

I’m able to change the color and the anchor point using the code above, but the font size is ignored completely. Tried setting it under NumericAxis but same result. Please let me know what can I do to achieve this.
Thanks,

Hi There!

I created a UserControl that contains amongst other stuff a SciChartSurface. That control can be resized by the user to any size and is together with a lot of other stuff in a grid. The user can create a PDF of the whole whole grid using RenderTargetBitmap.

For the PDF the grid is resized by a factor x to get a higher resolution. All children of that grid are repostioned and so on and it all works. The Chart looking really good in the PDF, but the TickLabels are not resizing when changing the FontSize of their axis.

I tried to bind the FontSize in the TickLabelStyle to the Axis FontSize in XAML and tried to set the binding in code behind but I can’t get it to work.

Anyone got an idea how to set TickLabelStyle.FontSize the same as its axis FontSize?

UPDATE: Manged to set a binding in the TickLabelStyle to the upper NumericAxis, but now I have the tick labels font size changing itself between the new and old font size all the time until I it change back to the old font size.

Thanks for any help!
