I’m creating a chart where the x-axis are dates. I want to load more (past) data when a button is clicked or when the visible range satisfies some condition. I have been able to do that using the InsertData function with index = 0 (in order to insert in the beginning of the series), but my problem now is how to keep the position I had before inserting the new data. Right now, after the insertion, the x-axis visible range’s indexes are the same instead of being moved to the right in order to show the same part of the data as before.

I have tried different ways to modify the visible range (by moving the range taking into account the new data size) but none of them have performed well.

I would like to display the same before and after inserting the previous data, so when the user scrolls he can find more data on the left but he is shown the same range of data as before.

I’m using the CategoryDateAxis as x-axis and the NumericAxis as y-axis (you can see the configuration of those axis below). The renderable series is a FastCandlestickRenderableSeries and the data series is an OhlcDataSeries<DateTime, double>.

Btw, I’m using the Xamarin wrapper for Android.

Could you help me with this issue?


var yAxis = new NumericAxis(this.Context)
        GrowBy = new DoubleRange(0, 0.1),
        AutoRange = AutoRange.Always

var xAxis = new CategoryDateAxis(this.Context)
       GrowBy = new DoubleRange(0, 0.1),
       VisibleRange = new DoubleRange(dataCount - InitialCandlesShown, dataCount + RightCandlesMargin),
       VisibleRangeLimit = new DoubleRange(-2.0, dataCount + RightCandlesMargin),
       MinimalZoomConstrain = new Java.Lang.Double(MinimumCandlesShown)

Hello support team,

We have to realize the following request:
– Yt chart with DateTime as X-axis and double values on the Y-axis
– The chart should display a user-defined area on startup (e.g. 20 sec) After the chart has run for 20 seconds ( i.e. 20 seconds), the animated scrolling should start. By default, the chart behaves as follows: The X-axis area fills up to 20 seconds and then starts scrolling. We want the chart to display 20 seconds on the X-axis at the start and fill up.

I am aware that I can implement this behavior myself. However, the question arises whether I can realize this directly with a basic functionality.

Thank you!

Hello Guys
I want to know how to set up a Xaxis major line manually.(NumericAxis )

For example,
If the range of the x-axis is 1 to 100

Major lines are 0,10,30,35,50 … 100

I want to set it freely.

When I embed my view controller in a navigation controller the top of the chart is hidden behind the navigation bar. So I went to the storyboard and found the view controller attributes section called “extend edges” and turned off the option called “under top bars”. This fixes the top of the chart. Now the bottom of the chart drops off the bottom of the screen. The x-axis is completely missing. Does SciChart support this case?

I am trying to use SciChart library for my project and find out whether it satisfy all requirements.

I am currently trying to display the ECG signal. Therefore the data is coming in realtime.

I have the following configuration

 final NumericAxis xAxis = mSciChartBuilder
                .withAxisTitle("Time (seconds)")
               // .withVisibleRange(0, 2040)
        final NumericAxis yAxis = mSciChartBuilder
                .withAxisTitle("Voltage (mV)")
                //    .withGrowBy(0.1d, 0.1d)
                .withVisibleRange(Short.MIN_VALUE, Short.MAX_VALUE)

It works but the X axis a little bit scaled/compress.

Here is the result

enter image description here

I need to make it a bit wider.

How can I do this ?

I have tried to set range manually like that

.withVisibleRange(0, 2040)

However in this case it doesn’t show anything.

I would be grateful for any help.

Is there an example of building a custom axis using a long or ulong?

So far I’ve tried implementing AxisBase and created necessary types for the given interfaces (IRange, IDeltaCalculator, IAxisDelta). But after implementing the minimum set of pieces, the chart comes up blank.

Also strangely the only two functions that get called on the AxisBase implementation are

IsOfValidType() — This gets called with a DoubleRange rather than my ULongRange.. Somehow a DoubleRange is being introduced, but I can’t see how.

Is there any good documentation/design info out there about how to do this?

I have attached the solution I’ve been working with.

Hi, guys

I’m working with SCIDateTimeAxis type of the X-axis. So my question Is there possibility of skipping non-value period?

Best regards,

I’m trying to limit the x-axis panning up to an annotation that I’ve drawn on the graph. This annotation can be beyond the current data’s position (i.e. data’s timestamp is at 5/4/2017 11:00:00, annotation’s position is at 5/4/2017 16:00:00). Is there a method, or any way that I can use to limit the x-axis panning up to the annotation’s position instead of limiting it to the data series’ max X?

I am using trial version of SciChart and doing some tests.

I need to bring scroll bar on top of X axis.

After some research and parsing visual tree, I am planning to change style of SciChartSurface and replace axis and scroll bar, which are placed inside stack panel.

Is this right solution? If AxisAlignment is Top, visual tree may differ. If this is right way to go, where can I find style of surface? Bland does not recognize chart and I can’t use it.

I have attached a picture showing what a depth track looks like (circled in red). The depth track takes the place of an X axis. In the picture the depth track is between a geology track above, and a normal log track below. Usually one depth track serves as the x axis for multiple plots, which are referred to as tracks.

I think that SciChart elements can be modified to produce this, but I am not sure where to start. Should I consider the depth track as just a plot with no curves and with the tick marks and x axis on the inside, or should I start with an independent x axis enclosed in a box?

From reading the material on the site I know how to do what I want to do in xaml:

    <Style x:Key="AxisLabelStyle" TargetType="s:DefaultTickLabel">
    <Setter Property="RenderTransform">
            <RotateTransform Angle="30"/>
    <Setter Property="HorizontalAnchorPoint" Value="Left"/>

Now however my chart will be using two diffrent x-axis, one numeric and one with date and time. Both axis are defined in code:

            _xAxisNum = new NumericAxis

        _xAxisDat = new DateTimeAxis

        sciChartSurface.XAxis = _xAxisDat;

What code must I add to my x-axes to get the same result as the xaml above accomplishes? Or can I achieve what I want with a LabelProvider?

Hi, I’m trying to position vertical line annotations on a chart. I want to position them on a visible part of the chart, but I need to use the Absolute coordinate mode as I want the annotation to move with the data as the chart is panned or zoomed.

My question is then: how can I find the currently visible extents of the X axis? If the chart is zoomed or panned I need to know what the left and rightmost visible X-axis values are (independent of the data).

I have a SciChart with as XAxis a DateTimeAxis and a dynamic/changing number of YAxes. Under the chart I have two DatePickers, the left one linked to the start of the DateTimeAxis, the right one linked to the end of the DateTimeAxis.

Now I would like to horizontally align these DatePickers right under the XAxis (so not just under SciChartSurface, see attached screenshot). How do I do this ? Note that the number of YAxes change, so I cannot just hardcode a margin.

Thanks in advance for any help,

I have a simple columns chart. The user can use a button that will basically change the data entirely.

The chartsurface has SeriesSource binded. Reassigning the series is changing the data on the chart, but the X-Axis is not being refreshed, so the data is showing up on the wrong part of the chart.

I uploaded 2 images to show the problem. In the “after” image, the long column should actually be at the “10+” label. If I open the same data in a new chart it shows correctly.

What’s the best method to entirely refresh a chart’s data?

Thanks in advance
