I am using a custom component based on the MultiPaneStockChart example which has the very nice overview scrollbar. I like a lot about this except for the scrolling behavior when clicked. When you click on either side of the “viewport” in the non-selected region it pans all the way to that spot. How would I go about changing this behavior so that it advances only one screen or page at a time (i.e. advances by the width or number of points that are in current XAxisVisibleRange)? In other words, if I am zoomed in on the middle of the chart so that only a portion is shown, whether I click immediately to the right of the viewport or two inches away it should scroll by the same amount. I see the SciChartScollBar exposes a SelectedRangeChanged event but I want to intercept before the range is changed. Thank you.

Best regards,

Hi Lawson

The SciChartScrollBar has a mouse click handler which causes it to zoom to the clicked location. Looking a the code for SciChart there is no way to customise this behaviour without modifying the source code for ScIChartScrollbar.

If you do have access to the source via source-code license, and want to do it, the change is simple. You need to change the method ScIChartScrollbar.OnNonSelectedAreaMouseLeftButtonUp(). If not then I’m afraid there is no endpoint for customisation of this behaviour.

Best regards,

    Thanks Andrew. Unfortunately no source code license for me but thank for responding and saving me the time from trying unsuccessfully. BTW, I think this is a common workflow–to zoom into the desired level and then want to page forwards/backwards. Since you can drag the viewport to the desired spot for long pans that would be my preferred method. I have captured the pageup and pagedown keys to allow me to move forwards/backwards as I described but it is still disconcerting to click the scroll bar and have it move multiple pages. Hard to undo 25 years of muscle memory from using financial charts. Perhaps a future version can expose a method for customization. Thank you!
