I migrated my project from .net 4.7.2. to .net 6.0 using the upgrade-assistant from Microsoft.
Now I get the exception:
“Strong name validation for the assembly ‘SciChart.Charting’ failed. Assembly not strong-named or is tampered. Verification via API failed”

Hi,

I’m trying to evaluate the reality of creating multiple realtime charts and I’m hitting a huge performance brick wall.

My application will have high speed streamed data coming in over ethernet. Currently I’m simulating this with a thread timer that updates 100 data objects at 60Hz. Screen data and chart updates I’ve got throttled to 30Hz but it’s still grinding my charts are still struggling. If I move the mouse pointer the charts freeze entirely until the mouse is still.

I want the end user to be able to choose any data object and chart it however they want. Adding charts and adding plots to charts etc. To enable this I’ve created a chart template as a user control and at runtime the charts are added to a panel on a tab control. Event one chart on one tab chugs though. Move the mouse over it and it locks up.

I have a single overview chart with a scrollbar over the top on the parent control. I need this to control the cursor (vertical line) and shared X visible range. Live data is Fifo limited to a 10 second range. All this works, just painfully slowly.

SharedXVisible range is MVVM bound. Renderable series is LineRenderableSeriesViewModel and data is pushed at 30Hz from a Data provider as per this tutorial:
https://www.scichart.com/documentation/win/current/Tutorial%2006b%20-%20Adding%20Realtime%20Updates%20with%20MVVM.html

CPU usage is sub 20%. Max frame rate is 30fps. Render priority doesn’t seem to make much difference, though “immediate” will lock up the whole app. I’m no expert at performance profiling but I’m not getting any clues from ReShaper dotTrace so far.

I tried creating a version that hand almost no binding and used codebehind to update the data. It didn’t seem to help. I’d rather not do this though as I have a lot of things working that I like such as vertical slice, annotations, templates etc.

I’ve got a list of all the live data on the right of the screen and it all updates rapidly, even while the mouse is moving and the charts are frozen.

I’m also using some Syncfusion controls and theming, if it matters.

I must be missing something obvious surely.

Hello SciChart-Team,
I noticed that the columns in Sparse Column3D and in Uniform Column 3D always start at the XZ surface. Is there any option or way to do so, that columns always use the zero value of the Y axis as their starting point. The visible range of the axes should correspond to the minimum and maximum Y values.

The current behavior can be reproduced in the example SciChart_UniformColumn3D:
If the VisibleRange of the Y-axis goes from 0 to 0.5 then the columns with negative values go down (see screenshot 1)
As soon as the VisibleRange of the Y-axis goes from -0.5 to 0.5, the columns look like this (Screenshot2) We need the columns to look like in Screenshot 1, only that the Y-axis is also visible downwards.

Can the starting point of the columns be changed?

Best regards
Silvester

Hello everybody,

I didnt find any answer to this. Is it possible to display data from year 0 to year 9999?

Until now i figuered out, that data from the year 834 to 9166 can be displayed. Beyond this range (eg to 9499) not data were displayed and the x-axis shows todays date.

Thanks for any help

Hi,

I am developing an MVVM WPF application and need to access the SelectedPointMarkers property of DataPointSelectionModifier from the ViewModel.

From looking at the DataPointSelectionModifier documentation (https://www.scichart.com/documentation/win/current/webframe.html#DataPoint%20Selection.html) I can see how you can get the X and Y coordinate values of a selected point in a view, by binding the PointMarkersSelectionModifier to a listbox.

However this doesn’t really help me, I need to get the coordinates of the SelectedPointMarker into a property inside the ViewModel that can be accessed, rather than just binding to a listbox in the view itself.

I’ve also looked at this similar post: (https://www.scichart.com/questions/wpf/i-want-to-bind-selectedpointmarkers-of-datapointselectionmodifier), but I had no luck getting Kenishis solution to work in my case.

How can i do this?

Thanks.

I have a chart with multiple series, and I would like to have the RolloverModifier behavior for all selected series, but with a single tooltip combining the values for all selected series rather than a separate tooltip per series (similar to the CursorModifier)

Is there a way to do one of the following?

  1. Merge the tooltips from the RolloverModifier?
    OR
  2. Only show the vertical crosshair from the CursorModifier, and snap the crosshair to the closest point in the series?

The RolloverModifier is closer to the behavior I want, the only change I would want is the merged tooltip.

How do you set X1,X2 and Y1,Y2 in xaml as suggested in a previous post here on the forum?

I also get null values here when using Composite Annotations example. the suggestion to set the value DependencyProperty.SetCurrentValue(X1Property, 0.0); does not work since DependencyProperty does not expose a SetCurrentValue method (?)

I am using your example code for doing composite Annotations on my existing chart.
I am using MeasureXAnnotation and MeasureXyAnnotation and the respective Update method that is overidden.

What am I missing ?

Appreciate your help with getting this working

Thanks

I am having an issue with my Composite Annotation implementation.
I am using the example provided in the MeasureXyAnnotation.xaml that I found here.
My exception that is thrown (see exception attachment provided) complains about a missing Axis value.

In the public override void Update(ICoordinateCalculator xCoordCalc, ICoordinateCalculator yCoordCalc)
the yCoordCalc comes in with a null value. The xCoordCalc is populated and looks valid.

See attachment of my plotting area and well as the chart area. The composite annotation shows up alright, but as soon as I try to drag it the exception is immediately thrown.

I have no idea at this point why. I have tried to implement the annotation according to your example but obviously I am missing something.
Support getting this to work would be immensely appreciated.

Thank you
Anders

Hello guys !
I am looking at the Composite Annotation example provided with the SDK that I downloaded a few days back.

I am somewhat confused on what assemblies I will need . The assemblies list you use is extensive and it is unclear to me what assemblies I need to include to apply this to my plot implementation.

The namespace
SciChart.Examples.Examples.AnnotateAChart.CompositeAnnotations is what I am looking at and what in that list of assemblies will I need to include to successfully implement Composite Annotation in our application ?

I work with a few models and views. Two of them, the ChartView and the PlotView respectively handles the charting surface , then the surrounding toggle buttons and such belongs to the PlotView.

What would be your recommendation how to begin implement this ?

Appreciate the support
Thank you

Cheers
Anders

I have a custom chartmodifier I use for highlighting points on mouseover for my 2D plots and I want to create the same functionality for my 3D scatter plot. However, I can’t get it to work;

for the 2D plot I do

var series = ParentSurface.RenderableSeries[0];
var pt = GetPointRelativeTo(e.MousePoint, ModifierSurface);
double dataPointRadius = 8;
var result = series.HitTestProvider.HitTest(pt, dataPointRadius);

However, it seems that 3D plots don’t have a hittestprovider and that it’s not possible to define a radius for the hit test, so the code becomes

var series = ParentSurface.RenderableSeries[0];
var pt = GetPointRelativeTo(e.MousePoint, ModifierSurface);
var result = series.HitTest(pt);

However, result.IsHit is always false. What am I missing?

Hello,

I am trying to set the interval on the x-axis in a polar plot but it doesn’t appear to be accepting it and plotting accordingly. My axis definition is quite simple:

<s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
       <s:PolarXAxis Name="TFxAxis" MajorDelta="15"/>
</s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>

I am plotting angles and radii so one data point might be (45, 1) and the next (50, 2) and so on where my visible range is TFxAxis.VisibleRange = new DoubleRange(-180.0, 180.0). Very simple plot but it keeps returning to a default of 1 on my MajorDelta for the x-axis and then showing major axes at 50 degree intervals. I’ve tried a variety of solutions but nothing seems to work properly.
Thanks,
Christina

Hi,

I am having an issue with the SciChart graphs. I have attached an image – SciChartIssue.png, here which shows the issue. Our SciChart graph contains 8 channels of dataseries for EEG / EMG signals. By default the first channel is selected. When we select/deselect additional channels, they start showing up on the graph accordingly. The issue happens when a channel is de-selected. i.e. when any channel is de-selected, we are clearing that particular channel dataseries, while the other series is being appended and rendered using SuspendUpdates(). But on the graph, the waveform tends to move towards the extreme end of the chart (as seen from the image attached). we were initially using version 5.4 of Scichart. but i later updated it to v6.3, but still have the same issue.
If you are aware or have come across such an issue, then I would appreciate any help or advice from you. Since this is a vast and secure project, I am not able to share the entire code with you at this moment. However, I have attached a xaml & .cs file used to render the graph, If it helps.

Thanks!

Hey Guys,

On a SciChart surface (CandleStickChart), how could I add LineAnnotation, BoxAnnotation, and TextBox annotation using TradingAnnotationCreationModifierMvvm (available under
ChartAnnotations/Trade Annotations sample). I have recreated a sample, based on the example.

Following is my XAML code,

Chart Surface: Modifiers.

<s:TradingAnnotationCreationModifierMvvm AnnotationViewModelType="{Binding DataContext.AnnotationCreationVM.AnnotationType, Source={StaticResource ROOT_OHLC_CHART_SPY}}"
                                                         AnnotationViewModelsCollection="{Binding LAnnotations}"
                                                         IsEnabled="{Binding DataContext.AnnotationCreationVM.IsAnnotationCreationEnable, Source={StaticResource ROOT_OHLC_CHART_SPY}, Mode=TwoWay}"
                                                         ReceiveHandledEvents="True">
                            <i:Interaction.Behaviors>
                                <ext:EventToCommandBehavior Command="{Binding DataContext.AnnotationCreationVM.AnnotationCreatedCommand, Source={StaticResource ROOT_OHLC_CHART_SPY}}"
                                                    Event="AnnotationCreated"
                                                    PassArguments="True" />

                }
            }                
        }
        catch { }        
    }

If there is any other way to club all Trading related annotations + TextBox, Line, TrendLine Annotations creation dynamically using any other modiefier, that will do. We are tying to build Trading charts: with Ability to add annotations.

Thanks.

With fifocapacity(XyDataSeries), memory behaves like an image. (Repeat ups and downs)
Is this due to fifocapacity(XyDataSeries)?

Hello dear SciChart team,

Our customer has a new security program that starts on Dlls that are copied into a directory during runtime. At the moment has the customer the problem that this security program starts on an AbtLicensingNative.dll. This DLL is in the following directory:
% USERPROFILE% \ AppData \ Local \ SciChart \ Dependencies \ v.6.2.1.13304 \ x64.

For this reason the following questions:
Is this DLL safe?
Why is the dll only copied at runtime? Is there another solution for this?

best regards

SciChart is creating too much garbage objects/events* instead of reusing through pools (Analysis through dotMemory shows this). In complex applications this additional gc-pressure causes frequent lockups. (GC Pauses in 50-250ms+ range).

Top backtraces for GC-Problem:
– WeakEventTable.Purge
– Tick Rendering (TimeSpan, Strings)
– ProperyChangedEventManager.Purge

Top Types:
– WeakEventTable+EventKey
– HybridDictionary
– Double, String, TimeSpan
– Action

All of these top types/backtraces result directly from SciChart as we cross-verified with your 2D-Chart-Realtime-Series demo and by omitting the SciChart controls from our application. ( 2/3 of the total memory pressure comes from SciChart with even just 2 charts being present in our application, we see 5MB garbage memory traffic per 2 second, resulting in very frequent GC collections sporadically spiking into a high duration)

We currently use SciChart WPF V5, it seems SciChart WPF V6 Demo didnt fix this instead just using the LowLatency GC mode causing more frequent GC-collections causing worse overall performance in complex applications. (as we verfied in our application)

Is there plans to increase memory/object reuse/pooling and reduce events/actions? (70k allocations of events/actions for short time spans arent really understandable). What are those 70k events for simply rendering a chart with not much changing, see the attached image.

What settings/methods do you recommend to lower the Memory Pressure/WeakEvents resulting from SciChart usage?

What is the best rendering method to minimize GC pressure, we only require updates if new data becomes available through our application. Would it be manual?

Please comment

Thank you

Hello,

On our SciChart’s XAxis we are using a NumericAxis and within the NumericAxis we bind to a LabelProvider. In the UI, this works perfectly and we get the XAxis appearing with the titles we desire (as strings writing over the numeric values 0, 1, 2, …). Meanwhile the YAxis doesn’t use any LabelProvider and stays numeric. The XAxis.LabelProvider is an IList of strings.

Although this works great in the UI, when I export the SciChart it does not pick up the LabelProvider and the exported image only contains the numeric values 0, 1, 2, … on the XAxis.

I do the export as following:

SciChartSurfaceBase.ExportToFile(filename, SciChart.Core.ExportType.Png, useXamlRenderSurface, exportedSize);

Is there a way to get the ExportToFile command to acknowledge the LabelProvider is there like it does with the UI?

Thank you!

Is it possible to plot a continuous vertical line as part of data point markers in line graph? I have used sprite to render text for data points. Now I want to draw a vertical line starting from data point till the peak apex to show which peak it is pointing to. The text labels in point markers are shifted to upward for some peaks to avoid collision and therefore there is a gap between peak apex and the point marker. So this requirement. I tried so far with OR symbol but it is displayed as a vertical dotted line when multiple OR symbols are placed one below another.

Is it possible to show a continuous vertical line as part of Data PointMarker in graph? We have managed to show text labels for our peaks using Data Points and point markers. We have used Sprite to display the TextBlock with peak labels. Now we need to show a vertical line starting from the label text up to the tip of peak. For readability we have kept a vertical space between the data point and the peak label. Hence sometimes it becomes difficult to find which peak points to which peak label. However there is no character to represent a long and continuous line. The OR character shows dotted line. Is there any other control we can use inside the sprite to show as a line?

Hi,

I have made the chart vertical by changing X axis alignment to left and Y axis alignment to bottom. After changing like this, im not able to resize the box annotation using all four resize adorners. Only two working, other two resetting Y1 value. below is the code snippet.

<s:SciChartSurface.Annotations>
     <s:BoxAnnotation
         x:Name="rangeBox"
         AnnotationCanvas="AboveChart"
         Background="Red"
         ClipToBounds="False"
         CoordinateMode="RelativeX"
         DragDirections="YDirection"
         IsEditable="True"
         Opacity="0.3"
         ResizeDirections="YDirection"
         X1="{Binding TopDepth, Mode=OneWay, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}"
         X2="{Binding BottomDepth, Mode=OneWay, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}"
         Y1="0"
         Y2="1"
         YAxisId="Top" />
 </s:SciChartSurface.Annotations>
 <s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
     <s:NumericAxis
         AutoRange="Once"
         AxisAlignment="Left"
         AxisTitle="Depth [ft]"
         DrawMajorBands="False"
         FlipCoordinates="{Binding FlipYAxis}"
         TitleStyle="{StaticResource AxisTitleStyle}" />
 </s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
 <s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
     <s:NumericAxis
         AxisAlignment="Bottom"
         BorderBrush="DarkGray"
         BorderThickness="0,0,0,1"
         DrawMajorBands="False"
         DrawMajorGridLines="True"
         Id="Top"
         TickTextBrush="DarkGray"
         TitleStyle="{StaticResource AxisTitleStyle}" />
 </s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>

Can you please let me know what i’ve missed?

Thanks

Hi,

I am using in my chart a VerticalSliceModifer with a VerticalLineAnnotation.
It works as expected, but I would like to modify the aspect of my VerticalLineAnnotation by adding a marker on the axis on top of the line, exactly as in the attached picture (not a scichart).
Is there a way to do that ?

Best regards,

I am rendering a HeatMap on WPF page using FastUniformHeatmapRenderableSeries which has 3 axes X, Y and Z. The Z values are represented with colors by defining the color palette and gradients. This works perfectly. Now there a need to define color palette in such a way that it will get applied to different parts of the map based on min and max value at that area of the map. To elaborate more, the Z values are basically representing peaks at different areas. So there can be multiple peaks distributed on the map.

What I need is that the top-most part of each peak should be shown in red color and then going down till its base with change in color like orange, yellow, green and blue based on certain range in %. The point to note here is, every peak can have its own min and max values. Peak 1 can start from Z=15 and end at Z=48 and peak 2 can start from Z=3 and end at Z=20. So the colors in the palette should get distributed equally for both these peaks. Top-most area of peak 1 and that of peak 2 should be having same color.
Is this possible in heat map? having say a conditional color palette based on multiple value ranges?

Hi,

I am currently adding a Vertical Slice Modifier with just on Vertical Line inside of it.
The idea is to create a vertical cursor to display Y values for a given X value.
As my chart is a real time chart, I don’t want my cursor position changed expect on user interaction, I set to Relative the CoordinateMode property of my Annotation.

<s:VerticalSliceModifier Name="sliceModifier" ShowTooltipOn="Always" IsEnabled="True">
                    <s:VerticalSliceModifier.VerticalLines>
                        <s:VerticalLineAnnotation IsEditable="True" X1="0.5" Stroke="#D62D15" CoordinateMode="Relative"/>
                    </s:VerticalSliceModifier.VerticalLines>
                </s:VerticalSliceModifier>

The vertical line is correctly displayed at the centre of the surface but point markers and tooltips are not displayed at the line position, it seems the relative coordinate mode is not handle on this area.

Thanks for your help

I have created a composite annotation that consists of four elements: two VerticalLineAnnotations, a BoxAnnotation, and a TextAnnotation. When I first add the annotation, everything appears correctly. However, when I change between tabs in my TabControl… the BoxAnnotation disappears. The box will reappear when I move the composite annotation a few pixels.

Note: Calling ZoomExtents() or InvalidateElement() does not fix the issue.

I’ve created a simple app to reproduce the issue.

Hello,

I want to implement a custom deltaX cursor in my software. It consists in two vertical lines that can be moved be the user and the idea to get the delta x (DateTime) between the two lines.
I’ve started to implement it by using two custom VerticalLineAnnotation added to a VerticalSliceManager. As my chart is a real time chart, I don’t want my cursors postions changed exepct on user interaction, that’s why I set to Relative the CoordinateMode property of my two Annotations.
The display and the interaction works fine, but when I try to retrieve the actual position of one cursor to compute the delta I have some trouble to convert the relative position to a DateTime value.
I have override the OnDragDelta() method, the relative value of X1 is correct but when I try to convert it into a DateTime by using FromRelativeCoordinate, I still have Date in 1899. I also try to interpret this as OA Date but I still have wrong date.

Do you have an idea ?
Thanks

 public override void OnDragDelta()
    {
        if (_sciChartSurface.XAxis != null)
        {
            double dataValue = (double)this.FromRelativeCoordinate((double)this.X1, _sciChartSurface.XAxis);
            DateTime classic = new DateTime((long)dataValue);
            DateTime fromOa = DateTime.FromOADate(dataValue);
            Debug.WriteLine("CLASSIC "+ classic);
            Debug.WriteLine("OA "+ fromOa);
        }

On a small PC with only Intel HD Graphics 4600 the DirectX rendering is not supported by SciChart. Thats fine but it should use the fallback render surface.

<s:SciChartSurface 
  RenderPriority ="Low"
  s:VisualXcceleratorEngine.IsEnabled="True"
  s:VisualXcceleratorEngine.FallbackType="{x:Type s:HighQualityRenderSurface}"
  s:VisualXcceleratorEngine.DowngradeWithoutException="True"
  s:VisualXcceleratorEngine.EnableImpossibleMode="True"
  s:PerformanceHelper.EnableExtremeDrawingManager="True"
  s:PerformanceHelper.EnableExtremeResamplers="True"

I got this exception:

    System.Exception: Your GPU is blacklisted for use by the Visual Xccelerator Engine! There are several reasons why a GPU could belong to the blacklist. For example, low computation capabilities of the GPU could cause Timeout Detection and Recovery of Graphics Adapter Drivers by the OS, resulting in crashing the application.
   at SciChart.Charting.VisualXcceleratorEngine.ivc(DependencyObject t, DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs u)
   at System.Windows.DependencyObject.OnPropertyChanged(DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs e)
   at System.Windows.FrameworkElement.OnPropertyChanged(DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs e)
   at System.Windows.DependencyObject.NotifyPropertyChange(DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs args)
   at System.Windows.DependencyObject.UpdateEffectiveValue(EntryIndex entryIndex, DependencyProperty dp, PropertyMetadata metadata, EffectiveValueEntry oldEntry, EffectiveValueEntry& newEntry, Boolean coerceWithDeferredReference, Boolean coerceWithCurrentValue, OperationType operationType)

   at System.Windows.DependencyObject.SetValue(DependencyProperty dp, Object value)

But it should use HighQualityRenderSurface without any exception.

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

Sorry for the simple question and please point me to the correct place if I have missed this in the docs.

I am just trying to easily bind the DataSeries of a FastLineRenderableSeries as a custom UserControl.

In my MainView I have placed the custom control:

<customUserControls:CustomLineChart x:Name="CustomLineChart1"
                                                    Grid.Column="1"
                                                    Grid.Row="0" />

My CustomLineChart.xaml is:

 <Grid>
    <sci:SciChartSurface x:Name="simpleLineChart">
        <sci:SciChartSurface.RenderableSeries>
            <sci:FastLineRenderableSeries x:Name="lineRenderSeries"
                                          Stroke="Blue"
                                          StrokeThickness="2" >
            </sci:FastLineRenderableSeries>
        </sci:SciChartSurface.RenderableSeries>

        <!--  Create an X Axis with GrowBy  -->
        <sci:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
            <sci:NumericAxis DrawMajorBands="True"
                             GrowBy="0.1, 0.1" />
        </sci:SciChartSurface.XAxis>

        <!--  Create a Y Axis with GrowBy. Optional bands give a cool look and feel for minimal performance impact  -->
        <sci:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
            <sci:NumericAxis DrawMajorBands="True"
                             GrowBy="0.5, 0.5" />
        </sci:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
    </sci:SciChartSurface>

I am trying to figure out how to bind the UserControl lineRenderSeries.DataSeries property in my MainViewModel

So something like this in my MainView.cs:

public partial class MainView : Window
{
    public MainView(MainViewModel vm, IMainFactory mainFactory)
    {
        InitializeComponent();
        DataContext = vm;

        CustomLineChart1.lineRenderSeries.DataSeries = vm.SomeXyDataSeries;
    }
}

Which works if the SomeXyDataSeries is set prior to this object getting created and does not update because it is not bound

Or something like this in my MainView.xaml

<customUserControls:SimpleLineChart x:Name="CoreStrategyPLGraph"
                                                    Grid.Column="1"
                                                    Grid.Row="0" 
                                                    DataSeries="{Binding SomeXyDataSeries}"/>

I have just been having an issue understanding how to properly set up this binding on the UserControl.

Any input/clarification on how to do this would be great!

Thank you,

Hello,

Is there a corresponding Documentation for the 3D Chart like this one for 2D Charts: https://www.scichart.com/example/wpf-chart-example-series-with-metadata/

What I am trying to do is to make some PointMarkers of the ScatterRenderableSeries3DViewModel in the 3D Chart bigger depending on the PointMetadata3D.
For 2D Charts I could accomplish that with the Documentation mentioned above. Now I want to do the same for 3D Charts.

Can someone give me a hint how to do that?

When the GrowBy property on NumericAxis3D is specified, a tooltip modifier on the same 3D chart shows over data points that are not those under the mouse pointer.

To replicate the issue:

  1. Clone the examples project from GitHub and open the SciChart2D3D.Examples solution.

  2. In UniformColumn3D.xaml change the XAxis, YAxis, ZAxis and ChartModifier elements to the following, from line 101 onwards:

    <s3D:SciChart3DSurface.XAxis>
        <s3D:NumericAxis3D AutoRange="Always"  />
    </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.XAxis>
    
    <s3D:SciChart3DSurface.YAxis>
        <s3D:NumericAxis3D AutoRange="Always" />
    </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.YAxis>
    
    <s3D:SciChart3DSurface.ZAxis>
        <s3D:NumericAxis3D AutoRange="Always" />
    </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.ZAxis>
    
    <s3D:SciChart3DSurface.ChartModifier>
        <s3D:TooltipModifier3D HoverDelay="150" CrosshairMode="Lines" ShowTooltipOn="MouseOver" />
    </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.ChartModifier>
    
  3. Run the application and observe that the 3D Charts -> Basic Chart Types -> Uniform Column 3D chart shows a chart with correct tooltips appearing when the mouse is hovered over columns on the chart.

  4. Add GrowBy=”0.1, 0.1″ to each axis property as follows:

    <s3D:SciChart3DSurface.XAxis>
        <s3D:NumericAxis3D AutoRange="Always" GrowBy="0.1,0.1"  />
    </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.XAxis>
    
    <s3D:SciChart3DSurface.YAxis>
        <s3D:NumericAxis3D AutoRange="Always" GrowBy="0.1,0.1" />
    </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.YAxis>
    
    <s3D:SciChart3DSurface.ZAxis>
        <s3D:NumericAxis3D AutoRange="Always"  GrowBy="0.1,0.1"/>
    </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.ZAxis>
    
  5. Run the application again and hover the mouse over the same chart. Note that the tooltop is now shown for a data point different to whichever one the mouse is over at the time, which is incorrect.

I bought a license and when I try to deploy my application it seems to be crashing. The application will build and run fine in Visual Studio. I have tried removing the scichart portions from my app and deploying and it runs fine then. I have tried following the tutorial for deployment located here:
https://www.scichart.com/activating-scichart/

but have not had any luck. Would anyone be able to offer any assistance with deploying with scichart?

Thank you for your time and assistance with this,
Max

I got no reply…

I’m able to reproduce the issue in the thread above, or at least a similar issue with version 5.4

What my code has is a “Start/Stop” button. When “Start” is pressed, the Axes are cleared and re-initialized.
If just using Start / Stop then it works, but if I export the chart into an image (a PNG in that matter), and after few seconds I click on the “Start”, then few seconds later, the software crash on the exception mentioned above.

From what I’ve been able to debug, the Export to image create a new chart control with all the bindings, and renders it to an image.
When I click on start, then the Axis (in this case, I see that the Y Axes are the ones that cause it) are cleared and created in my view model, and therefore it also affects the chart.
The binding of the chart that was created for the rendering is probably not cleared, so it gets the change event after some time, and Arrange is being called.

I see that ArrangeOverride on the AxisPanel is called, and _axisTitle,Arrange is called at this point the application crashes.

Please fix it.

Btw, this is the stack trace:

Hi, i’m developing an app in WPF and i found that it crashes when i’m dereferencing the user control where my chart lives in and have 1 or more points selected by code in one chart when the other one is not visible.

i would be very apreciated if someone could tell me a hint of where i have to look for the solution or what do this methods do or touch.

more data about the chart:

  • I have 2 fastlinerenderable series each with 2 Yaxis for itselves and 2 shared XAxis.
  • I also have a modified listbox which is have it’s sincronization synced to the chart.
  • have a modifiergroup to pan,zoom and select.

this is my Selectionmodifier:

<scicharts:DataPointSelectionModifier
                        Name="ChartSelection"
                        SelectionFill="#B1B5B2B2" 
                        XAxisId="{Binding XAxisType, NotifyOnTargetUpdated=True}"
                        TargetUpdated="ChartSelection_TargetUpdated"
                        SelectionStroke="#009E9C9C"
                        IsEnabled="{Binding SelectionMode}" >

I think that this is the axis that breaks my program but it needs it to not crash when i select.

this is my stacktrace:

An unhandled exception of type ‘System.NullReferenceException’ occurred in SciChart.Charting.dll

en SciChart.Charting.ChartModifiers.DataPointSelectionModifier.DeselectAllPointMarkers()
en SciChart.Charting.ChartModifiers.DataPointSelectionModifier.OnXAxisIdDependencyPropertyChanged(DependencyObject d, DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs e)

I tried to make a program that could replicate the error but i couldn’t.

thanks in advance.

Hello is there way to update points in XyDataSeries without Garbage Collector call? Here is my code:

public void RefreshSignal(float[] xData, float[] yData)
{
        if (_series == null)
        {
             _series = new XyDataSeries<float, float>();
            _series.Append(xData, yData);
        }

         for (int i = 0; i < xData.Length; i++)
         {
               _series.Update(xData[i], yData[i]);
         }
}

I may use _series.YValues[i], but then UI will not update.

Main task for me fast update all 25k points in series each 30ms without GC calls.

Hi

I am trying to use StackedMountainSeries to implement the trade data as following pic.
enter image description here

But I noticed an unexpected behavior (incorrect.png).

The blank area is displayed near the center red point (which data value is 0).

How to fill the blank area? And what is the correct way to render the trade data as same as the attached pic?

Thanks,
David.

Hi there,

I use SciChart v5.4.0.12119 trial to display FastLineRenderableSeries in my WPF application. It works with the default black background. But when I change the background to white (), the background gets messed up in white-black strips.

I tried to disable hardware acceleration. hwndSource.CompositionTarget.RenderMode = System.Windows.Interop.RenderMode.SoftwareOnly; It doesn’t help.

What could cause the issue?

Regards,
Jun

Hi!

I would like to plot a series as a solid line AND include error bars. The way I do this now is to define a single series:

var fSeries    = new HlcDataSeries<double, double>();
fSeries.SeriesName = $"My Series!";

And then two different ViewModels:

var fLineVm = new LineRenderableSeriesViewModel();
var fErrorVm = new ErrorBarsRenderableSeriesViewModel();

And set the data series to belong to both:

fLineVm.DataSeries = fSeries;
fErrorVm.DataSeries = fSeries;

This looks ok. But when I show the legend, I see “My Series” in the legend twice, and I can control the error bars separately from the line series.

What I want to happen is that I see the series a single time in the legend and if I turn it off (uncheck it) everything disappears.

Right now, i’m adding those two ViewModels to an ObservableCollection of IRenderableSeriesViewModels and then SeriesBinding to display them.

I recently needed to change the Rotation Angle of a polar plot from the default to 90 degrees. We have line annotations for different points on the polar plot. After the change, the annotation was still plotted on the default Rotation Angle.

I manually updated the points like this for the annotations to work:

var line = new LineAnnotation();

                var x1 = (double)NewSeries.DataSeries.XValues[0];
                var x2 = (double)NewSeries.DataSeries.XValues[1];

                if (x1.Between(0, 90) && x2.Between(0, 90))
                {
                    x1 += 270;
                    x2 += 270;
                }
                else
                {
                    x1 -= 90;
                    x2 -= 90;
                }

                line.X1 = x1;
                line.X2 = x2;

Is there another way to update the annotation or is something like this the preferred way?

Hi!

I have a chart that display time-series data and sometimes I have a few minutes of data, other times I have hours. All of the data points are taken every minutes. The X-Axis starts at 0 minutes and progresses from there.

My goal is to have the Axis Title say “Minutes” if there are < 120 points of data. If there are > 120 points of data then I want the Axis to be titled “Hours” and then divide the X-Axis label by 60.

I’ve started with this: https://www.scichart.com/documentation/v5.x/webframe.html#Axis%20Labels%20-%20LabelProvider%20API.html

and it’s doing about what I expect. I check the AxisCore’s Range and if the range is > 120 I set the AxisCore.AxisTitle to “Hours”, otherwise “Minutes”. So far so good.

The problem is that doing it this way means I have labels such as “48.333333” for the hours.

If, on the other hand, when I create the XYSeries that I’m plotting I pass in the already-divided-by-60 values, SciChart seems to select whole numbers so instead of showing me something like “48.333333” it would either show me “48” or it would use 50 or another whole number for the tick marks.

So my question: Is this doable by just writing a custom LabelProvider? Do I need to write a custom Axis class instead? Or somehow tell the Axis that’s in-use to recalibrate itself by dividing all of the elements by 60 before computing tick marks?

In the images I’m attaching, one plot shows me plotting a series where when I create series the x-value is being divided by 60 before I call .Append() on the series. The other one shows what happens when I use my custom LabelProvider and divide by 60 when the Axis label is drawn.

Thanks!

Hello,

I have the problem, that sometimes only one label is shown on the X-Axis even when there is space to show some more, than only one.
The property “IsLabelCullingEnabled” would show them all, but than it is ugly if there is not enough space.
So what can I do to have some more Labels shown?

In the Screenshots you can see that with only a few pixels more, more labels are shown, but the could have been also shown with less pixels (Especially Label “1” and “22” could have been shown).

Hi Team,

I added the PinchZoomModifier to my chart. However, when we do the gesture it does not zoom, instead, it pans the y-axis.
Here is the code:

Hello!

I am trying to programmatically set a range for HeatmapColorPalette and attached HeatmapColorMap to min and max of my data.

Binding HeatmapColorPalette.Maximum to a property in my View Model works well. However, when I add HeatmapColorMap everything breaks, the heat map no longer responds to changes in View Model.

What am I doing wrong?

Here is my View:

                AxisAlignment="Left"/>
        </s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
    </s:SciChartSurface>

    <!-- Enabling this will break the program
    <s:HeatmapColorMap

        ColorMap="{Binding ColorMap.GradientStops, Converter={StaticResource ColorsToLinearGradientBrushConverter}}"
        Maximum="{Binding ColorMap.Maximum}"
        Orientation="Vertical">
    </s:HeatmapColorMap>
    -->

    <Label 
        Grid.Row="0" 
        Grid.Column="2" 
        Content="{Binding ColorMaximum}" 
        Width="50" 
        HorizontalContentAlignment="Center"/>
    <Slider 
        Grid.Column="2" 
        Grid.Row="1" 
        Orientation="Vertical" 
        Minimum="0" 
        Maximum="10" 
        HorizontalAlignment="Center"
        Value="{Binding ColorMaximum}"/>
</Grid>

The idea in this small example is for slider to control both HeatmapColorPalette.Maximum and s:HeatmapColorMap.Maximum

The code in my View Model is pretty simple:

private double mColorMax;

public double ColorMaximum
    {
        get => mColorMax;

        set
        {
            mColorMax = value;
            OnPropertyChanged();
        }
    }

My View Model implements INotifyPropertyChanged

I will appreciate any suggestions.

Thank you in advance!

I am not able to find the data point corresponding to current mouse position on heatmap series PreviewMouseMove event.

Here is my code,

private void Contour_PreviewMouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
    {
        var xCalc = Contour.RenderableSeries[0].XAxis.GetCurrentCoordinateCalculator();
        var yCalc = Contour.RenderableSeries[0].YAxis.GetCurrentCoordinateCalculator();
        Point mousePoint = e.GetPosition(((SciChartSurface)sender).ModifierSurface as UIElement);
        double peakXCordInfoValue = xCalc.GetDataValue(mousePoint.X);
        double peakYCordInfoValue = yCalc.GetDataValue(mousePoint.Y);
    }

“Contour” is my SciChart object. When I debugged to find out my X and Y axis data points and compared them with what I find above in peakXCordInfoValue, then they don’t match. Ideally if I am finding the data point then it should match exactly.

I also tried to find index

var index = Contour.RenderableSeries[0].DataSeries.FindIndex(yDataForCoordinate, SearchMode.Nearest);

But it gives error “Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object.”
I also tried cursormodifier and its OnModifierMouseMove event, but it gives same error.

For Example: The actual data point on Y axis is 280.774501562118, and the above code returns 280.523009343212

Hi SciChart!

I am evaluating the trial for possible use in a major project within our organisation.

We have decided to use the System.Reactive reactive extensions as our event handler and I have reached the point where I have an IObservableCollection (instantiated as ObservableCollectionExtended) of where T can be any type containing X and Y values.

My question is, is it possible to Bind a scichart Line Series on to such a collection in order to update via the reactivestream updates?

I’d rather not have to copy points into yet another collection type if possible.

Note: I looked at the nuget for scichart wpf reactive library and that seems to bind on to rx 2.2.5 whereas I’m using system.reactive 4.1.6

Any direction for a new-to-reactive developer would be greatly received.

I am using a custom CursorModifier class in my WPF code. I have created a class inherited from CursorModifier for this purpose. Now I want to apply cross-hair cursor style to my chart. The style in XAML is not getting applied at all. However, when I use the CursorModifier directly (instead of custom modifier class) in XAML, then it applies.

If I changed the TargetType to “loca:MyCursorModifier”, then it gives error “The memeber StrokeThickness is not recognized” & “The “memeber Stroke is not recognized”.

<UserControl.Resources>
    <Style x:Key="CrossLineStyle" TargetType="Line">
        <Setter Property="StrokeThickness" Value="1" />
        <Setter Property="Stroke" Value="Black " />
    </Style>
</UserControl.Resources>

<local:MyCursorModifier ShowTooltip="False" ShowTooltipOn="Never" ShowAxisLabels="False" SourceMode="AllSeries" LineOverlayStyle="{StaticResource CursorLineStyle}"/>
