I would like to ask if there is any easy way to select distict time intervals.
I have thought of creating vertical slices on mouse down and up events,
and highlighting the surface between the slices. Is there an easier way
to do this?

Hi Kristóf,

Thanks for your enquiry! In SciChart we don’t (currently) have a way to do this but I’m going to give you two solutions:

In SciChart v3.x

You can use our Annotations API to draw on the screen, specifically, take a look at this thread on templating a BoxAnnotation (you can draw any UI you want if you change the template and/or subclass BoxAnnotation).

Next, how to place it on mouse-click? Well, you can either use our own AnnotationCreationModifier, or, you can create a custom ChartModifier. Have a look here at the great tutorials on the chartmodifier API, which allow mouse-input and drawing over the chart.

In SciChart v4.x

Coming soon: we have a new API to create Composite Annotations and we are creating MeasureX, MeasureY and MeasureXY annotations which do exactly this. See a screenshot below.

Best regards,
