I’m experiencing a strange phenomenon in which the (in-)visibility of the MajorGridLines of the X-and Y-Axis is only realized in the GUI after the SciChartSurface containing the Axis has been manually resized.

The SciChartSurface is embedded in our GUI like any ordinary WPF-element.

The visibility of the MajorGridLines is controlled via a C#-property:

public virtual bool BackgroundGridVisibility       
              get {
                  return m_yAxis.DrawMajorGridLines;
              set {       
                  m_xAxis.DrawMajorGridLines = m_yAxis.DrawMajorGridLines = value;

I tried various application of the UpdateLayout-Funktion after setting the visibility, but did not observe positive change.

Is there some other kind of “repaint”-function that can be used to update the visibility of the GridLines?

Thank you

I have multiple series on a chart surface, each with their own y-axis. I do not want to display all y-axes as this would take up half the chart surface.

Is there a way to make the matching y-axis only visible when the mouse cursor hovers over a series (hit-test)? How would I go about that?

I have both a VerticalLineAnnotation and LineAnnotation. When I drag my VerticalLineAnnotation around, the onAnnotationPositionChanged event is fired. The partial stack trace is attached. Once the Make Visible method is called, it goes through until it affects the LineAnnotation’s visiblity property that it has no direct binding too. If I change the visibility property that the LineAnnotation’s visibility is bound to, then moving the VerticalLineAnnotation changes that new property.

Why is this happening?

I am trying to use SciChartGroupPane and ChildPanes for my application, and
want to collapse a pane , so that the remaining space is filled with the remaining graphs.

I tried to set the visibility to collapsed but, when i do that the panes only disappear,
but the remaining pane does not resize.

As I see the panes have two small buttons on the upper right corner for collapse and close,
This collapse button is similar to what i would want but I have no idea how to reach the collapse
functionality throgh code. Is it possible to collapse a pane withouth removing it from the container
for the ItemTemplate?

I have a chart showing data sets composed of multiple renderable series. Each data set is displayed using one FastLineRenderableSeries and three XyScatterRenderableSeries. All four series show in the legend for each data set, but I would only like to show the FastLineRenderableSeries in the legend for each data set. How can I do this?

I’ve seen the legendModifier.GetLegendDataFor property, but that can only be set to show options from this enum

public enum SourceMode
    AllSeries = 0,
    AllVisibleSeries = 1,
    SelectedSeries = 2,
    UnselectedSeries = 3,

which aren’t what I need. Some kind of flag on the renderable series saying whether they should be shown in the legend, or some way to specify the items source for the legend would be good.

How can I only show Legends when the corresponding RenederableSeries is visible.
If the corresponding RenderableSeries is not visible then that Legend shouldn’t be shown.
Keep in mind my users will be able to hide and show RenderableSeries during runtime.

My xaml code is:

                                            <s:LegendModifier x:Name="legendModifier" ShowVisibilityCheckboxes="False" Orientation="Vertical" ShowLegend="{Binding ParentViewModel.ShowLegends, Mode=TwoWay}" Margin="10" />
                                                <Style TargetType="s:BaseRenderableSeries">
                                                    <Setter Property="StrokeThickness" Value="3"/>

I have a chart with multiple dataseries, with each dataseries having annotations on top (like in the Trade Markers example). I have a legend which already shows or hides dataseries using a checkbox, but how can I make this checkbox also show or hide the annotations for that dataseries? Can I hook an event when this checkbox is triggered, or when the dataseries visibility changes?

I have a surface with multiple dataseries in it. I have a legend for each serie, setup like this:

chart.ChartModifier = new Abt.Controls.SciChart.ChartModifiers.LegendModifier() { Name = "legendModifier" };

var legend = new Abt.Controls.SciChart.Visuals.SciChartLegend { Margin = new Thickness(5) };

// Bind the legend to the data source
var legendDataBinding = new Binding("LegendData") { Source = chart.ChartModifier };
legend.SetBinding(Abt.Controls.SciChart.Visuals.SciChartLegend.LegendDataProperty, legendDataBinding);

And it works fine.
However, I would also like to bind the visibility of the legends to the visibility of the dataseries. I have tried this:

// Bind the legend visibility to the data source
var legendVisibilityBinding = new Binding("Visibility") 
    Converter = new BoolToVisibilityConverter(),
    Source = line.IsVisible
legend.SetBinding(Abt.Controls.SciChart.Visuals.SciChartLegend.LegendDataProperty, legendVisibilityBinding);

But it doesn’t seem to work, any suggestions, anyone?
