I am creating point data series using SCIXyScatterRenderableSeries.
I need to tap on specific data points and display pop over or some view on top of it. Pop over provides information regarding that point.

How can I implement that in iOS.

I am using a CursorModifier with custom template to display tool tips with cross hairs on my scatter plots. Everything works as intended until the plot gets busy with points then the tool tip only shows for a few points. I am using ResamplingMode.None on my XyScatterRenderableSeries. Any ideas? Thanks

<s:CursorModifier IsEnabled="{Binding AreTooltipsEnabled}"
                  TooltipContainerStyle="{StaticResource CursorTooltipStyle}"
                  LineOverlayStyle="{DynamicResource CursorLineStyle}"

This is my data structure which needs to be plotted using XyScatterRenderableSeries:

public class Measurement
        public Color Color { get; set; }
        public double X { get; set; }
        public double Y { get; set; }

I need to plot a list of measurements. It can be done in one series but each point color needs to be read from measurement data. To achieve that I’ve used a custom PaletteProvider and the result is satisfactory:

single series

It looks good but there is a huge problem with a performance. If I try to pan, zoom etc. the application horribly slows down.
Also I’ve tried to group measurements by Color and then plot a couple of series with specified color but the result is the same.

I am attaching a simple application which shows the problem.
Hope anyone can help me.

Best regards,

I use a scatter series that contains around 200,000 data points and I noticed that in the DirectX assisted rendering mode (not sure it also applies to the normal non DirectX mode) scatter points are sampled, meaning, not all scatter points are visible on the chart surface.

How can I turn that off to display all data points even if that may affect performance? I chart financial time series and the chart often shows discrete jumps when there are actually many data points in between when zooming in.

I’m trying to get a scatter series chart to work but it doesn’t render. For Bar, Impulse, and Line I can use the same code only switching the series type, but when I attempt to do the same with Scatter series (both XyScatter and ExtremeScatter) the points don’t render.

Here is my scatter series code:

// ... 
        for (int i = 0; i < dimensions; i++)
            var scatterSeries = new ExtremeScatterRenderableSeries()
                PointMarker = new EllipsePointMarker() { Width = 7, Height = 7}

            scatterSeries.PaletteProvider = new ExtremeScatterPaletteProvider(colors);

            Binding DataSeriesBinding = new Binding("Data");
            DataSeriesBinding.Source = (_cvm as ChartViewModelXY).ndData.ElementAt(i);
            scatterSeries.SetBinding(BaseRenderableSeries.DataSeriesProperty, DataSeriesBinding);


// ...
public class ExtremeScatterPaletteProvider : IExtremePointMarkerPaletteProvider
    private readonly List<Color> _dataPointColors;
    private readonly Values<Color> _colors = new Values<Color>();
    public ExtremeScatterPaletteProvider(List<Color> dataPointColors)
        _dataPointColors = dataPointColors;
    // Fill Colors for each data-point index
    public Values<Color> Colors { get { return _colors; } }
    public void OnBeginSeriesDraw(IRenderableSeries rSeries)
        var indexes = rSeries.CurrentRenderPassData.PointSeries.Indexes;
        var count = indexes.Count;
        _colors.Count = count;
        // copy required colors from list using data point indices
        for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)
            var dataPointIndex = indexes[i];
            _colors[i] = _dataPointColors[dataPointIndex];

The same code works with 3 other XY charts, so I’m fairly certain the issue is with how I am creating the ExtremeScatter. Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!

Edit: For anyone curious / googling a fully instantiated XyScatterRenderableSeries in code looks like this:

   // Render a scatter series
    var scatterSeries = new XyScatterRenderableSeries()
            PointMarker = new EllipsePointMarker() { Width = 7, Height = 7, Stroke = colors[i], Fill = colors[i]}

That will render the series with the same color for both the border and interior.
