SciChart® the market leader in Fast WPF Charts, WPF 3D Charts, iOS Chart, Android Chart and JavaScript Chart Components


I saw similar topic that can export HeatMapColorMap with help of BoxAnnotation. But BoxAnnotation can be placed within plot area. I want to have ColorMap outside of Plot Area, may be next to y-Axis. But it should not be obstructing the plotting area. Any idea?

Hi Ammar

If the HeatmapColorMap is not a visual child of the SciChartSurface, then ScIChartSurface.Export will not export this element.

We can’t export an item that doesn’t exist in the chart!

Some ideas for you:

1.) you can either include the heatmapcolormap as a visual child of the SciChartSurface, e.g. inside a CustomAnnotation

2.) You can use WPF’s top level PrintVisual functions to grab a screenshot of the parent control. Have a look here for more information.

Best regards,
