SciChart® the market leader in Fast WPF Charts, WPF 3D Charts, and iOS Chart & Android Chart Components
I am currently using the HighQualityRenderSurface (as seen here: https://support.scichart.com/index.php?/News/NewsItem/View/30) to replace some dynamically drawn maps in an application. I’m wondering if there is a way to make a blended/ gradient brush that can be drawn onto this surface. The application currently uses a three color blended brush drawn onto a WPF canvas.
Edit: Added images as an example of what we are trying to achieve.
Thanks Cameron! The image helps, without it I find myself having to imagine from text 🙂
OK so I’ve seen charts like this before, and we created one for an Oil & Gas customer as a piece of consultancy work a few years ago. We don’t have a blending gradient filled line chart in SciChart out of the box. However, you can achieve a similar effect with the PaletteProvider feature.
I would suggest using VisualXccelerator engine, as it’s considerably faster for these types of charts, and switch colour of a thick line series using the PaletteProvider.
When you zoom you will see hard jumps from one colour to the next, as I said it does not gradient fill. Like this:
Some of our customers in racing have build something very similar. Actually I don’t kow how they’ve done this but check it out
This is a screenshot of the Revolve NTNU project, showcased here: https://blog.scichart.com/powering-research-development-innovation-worldwide/
Let me contact them and ask how they did it.
Finally, we could build this as a feature, if you log it, or as part of customisation / consultancy work if you want something specific that SciChart doesn’t do out of the box.
