Hi Sahar,

Thank you for your video, it helps clarify what you want to achieve. You want to

  • Have a scrollbar on XAxis
  • When you zoom in, stop auto ranging or scrolling automatically
  • When you zoom back out, resume auto ranging or scrolling automatically

First of all, there is nothing in SciChart itself that allows you to do this exact behaviour. However, you can achieve it yourself with a very simple workaround.

enter image description here

How do we do this?

Please see the article How to have a Fixed Scrolling Time-Range on the XAxis that works with Modifiers

  • You need to update your VisibleRange when you append new data, with a simple rule:
    • If the latest XValue is inside the viewport, update VisibleRange so you scroll 1 point
    • else, do not update VisibleRange

This is implemented in the Real Time Ticking Stock Charts example.

    Hi Andrew, Thanks a lot for your response, but it's possible to implement this same Scrollbar ? because my application a without Mvvm ? Best regards, Sahar

    You don't need MVVM. We just use MVVM because its best practices for WPF. To implement a scrollbar in SciChart, you just set SciChartSurface.XAxis.ScrollBar = new SciChartScrollbar(). To update visible range, just set SciChartSurface.XAxis.VisibleRange(). If you want a scrollbar like the Windows scrollbar (e.g. not a SciChartScrollbar), I would not recommend this, because you need two grips (left and right) to define visible range
