SciChart® the market leader in Fast WPF Charts, WPF 3D Charts, and iOS Chart & Android Chart Components
I have tried, numerous times, to understand your example “Series with Metadata,” but to my untrained eye it seems to be doing a lot of things at once, which makes it hard to understand. I am fairly inexperienced with WPF and prefer not to use MVVM. I have figured out most of what I need. But I haven’t figured out how to add metadata to existing data and display the metadata on a chart.
Do you have a simple example of adding metadata to an existing OhlcDataSeries and then displaying the metadata using a cursor tool tip?
Your help would be greatly appreciated,
I’m afraid this isn’t a simple topic unless you’re familiar with WPF, and does require a lot of moving parts. To add metadata to a chart.
Next to display the metadata in the tooltip you have to template the tooltip. This means you’ve got to change the XAML to display the data.
There is a bit more info at our DataSeries PointMetadata API Documentation over here. Let me know if that helps clarify the API.
Thank you for your quick response.
I am somewhat familiar with WPF. I have read the example you refer to and tried to use it, but without success so far.
I guess I was hoping there might be another example that I hadn’t found. Your Example Suite, which is amazing, has numerous examples for the relatively simple idea of a FastRenderableSeries, but only one example for metadata.
I will continue to try to figure it out.
