Hi Anitha,

If you are calling SciChartSurface.ExportToBitma(), it will only export the elements that are actually within the SciChartSurface’s visual children.

So the GroupBox – depending on how it is placed on the SciChartSurface may not be a visual child, therefore will not be exported when you call ExportToBitmap().

To include an element in the visual children of the SciChartSurface, you have three choices:

  1. You can re-template the SciChartSurface control template. This is complex and over the top for what you want
  2. You can place elements inside the SciChartSurface.RootGrid, which is simply a grid, at the root of the SciChartSurface
  3. You can place elements on the SciChartSurface.ModifierCanvas, which is a canvas over the top of the SciChartSurface
  4. You can place elements inside a CustomAnnotation inside the SciChartSurface.

Once you do that, calling SciChartSurface.ExportToBitmap() should include the elements in the screenshot.

Best regards,
