Hey Guys,

On a SciChart surface (CandleStickChart), how could I add LineAnnotation, BoxAnnotation, and TextBox annotation using TradingAnnotationCreationModifierMvvm (available under
ChartAnnotations/Trade Annotations sample). I have recreated a sample, based on the example.

Following is my XAML code,

Chart Surface: Modifiers.

<s:TradingAnnotationCreationModifierMvvm AnnotationViewModelType="{Binding DataContext.AnnotationCreationVM.AnnotationType, Source={StaticResource ROOT_OHLC_CHART_SPY}}"
                                                         AnnotationViewModelsCollection="{Binding LAnnotations}"
                                                         IsEnabled="{Binding DataContext.AnnotationCreationVM.IsAnnotationCreationEnable, Source={StaticResource ROOT_OHLC_CHART_SPY}, Mode=TwoWay}"
                                                         ReceiveHandledEvents="True">
                            <i:Interaction.Behaviors>
                                <ext:EventToCommandBehavior Command="{Binding DataContext.AnnotationCreationVM.AnnotationCreatedCommand, Source={StaticResource ROOT_OHLC_CHART_SPY}}"
                                                    Event="AnnotationCreated"
                                                    PassArguments="True" />
                            </i:Interaction.Behaviors>
                        </s:TradingAnnotationCreationModifierMvvm>

ParentView Buttons,

<ToggleButton Width="Auto" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Content="Line" 
                                  Style="{StaticResource ChartToggleButton}" 
                                  IsChecked="{Binding AnnotationCreationVM.Line}" 
                                  CommandParameter="{x:Type s:LineAnnotationViewModel}"/>
                    <ToggleButton Width="Auto" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Content="Elliot Wave"  Grid.Row="1"
                                  Style="{StaticResource ChartToggleButton}" 
                                  IsChecked="{Binding AnnotationCreationVM.EllioteWave}" 
                                  CommandParameter="{x:Type dt:ElliotWaveAnnotationViewModel}"/>
                    <ToggleButton Width="Auto" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Content="Pitch Fork" Grid.Row="2" 
                                  Style="{StaticResource ChartToggleButton}" 
                                  IsChecked="{Binding AnnotationCreationVM.PitchFork}" 
                                  CommandParameter="{x:Type dt:PitchforkAnnotationViewModel}"/>
                    <ToggleButton Width="Auto" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Content="Xabcd" Grid.Row="3" 
                                  Style="{StaticResource ChartToggleButton}" 
                                  IsChecked="{Binding AnnotationCreationVM.Xabcd}" 
                                  CommandParameter="{x:Type dt:XabcdAnnotationViewModel}"/>
                    <ToggleButton Width="Auto" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Content="Head N Shoulders" Grid.Row="4" 
                                  Style="{StaticResource ChartToggleButton}" 
                                  IsChecked="{Binding AnnotationCreationVM.Hns}" 
                                  CommandParameter="{x:Type dt:HeadAndShouldersAnnotationViewModel}"/>
                    <ToggleButton Width="Auto" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Content="Fibonacci Extension" Grid.Row="5" 
                                  Style="{StaticResource ChartToggleButton}" 
                                  IsChecked="{Binding AnnotationCreationVM.FibExt}" 
                                  CommandParameter="{x:Type dt:FibonacciExtensionAnnotationViewModel}"/>
                    <ToggleButton Width="Auto" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Content="Fibonacci Retracement" Grid.Row="6"
                                  Style="{StaticResource ChartToggleButton}" 
                                  IsChecked="{Binding AnnotationCreationVM.FibRetr}" 
                                  CommandParameter="{x:Type dt:FibonacciRetracementAnnotationViewModel}"/>

ParentView view model,

public ICommand AnnotationCreatedCommand => new ActionCommand<AnnotationCreationMVVMArgs>(e =>
    {
        try
        {
            var annotation = e.NewAnnotationViewModel;
            if (annotation != null)
            {
                if (annotation is ITradingAnnotationViewModel tradingAnnotation)
                {
                    ((AnnotationBase)tradingAnnotation.Annotation).Selected += OnAnnotationSelectionChanged;
                    ((AnnotationBase)tradingAnnotation.Annotation).Unselected += OnAnnotationSelectionChanged;
                }
                annotation.IsEditable = true;
                annotation.CanEditText = true;
                annotation.IsSelected = true;

                FibRetr = false;
                FibExt = false;
                Hns = false;
                Xabcd = false;
                PitchFork = false;
                EllioteWave = false;
                Line = false;
            }

            IsAnnotationCreationEnable = false;
            IsAnnotationDrawn = false;

            OnPropertyChanged("IsAnnotationDrawn");
        }
        catch { }
    });

    private void OnAnnotationSelectionChanged(object sender, EventArgs eventArgs)
    {            
        try
        {
            var parent = ((System.Windows.FrameworkElement)((System.Windows.FrameworkElement)sender).Parent).TemplatedParent;
            if(parent is SciChartSurface)
            {
                var surface = parent as SciChartSurface;
                if(null != surface)
                {
                    OHLCVChart chart = surface.DataContext as OHLCVChart;
                    Annotations = chart.LAnnotations;
                    SelectedAnnotation = Annotations.FirstOrDefault(x => x.IsSelected);
                }
            }                
        }
        catch { }        
    }

If there is any other way to club all Trading related annotations + TextBox, Line, TrendLine Annotations creation dynamically using any other modiefier, that will do. We are tying to build Trading charts: with Ability to add annotations.

Thanks.
