I am trying to use SciChartGroupPane and ChildPanes for my application, and
want to collapse a pane , so that the remaining space is filled with the remaining graphs.
I tried binding the Visibility property to the charts itemcontainer style, but it only partially helped.
I got all the panes collapsing except for the first one. I attached a sample project, where I try to collapse all panes but the last one.
I asked the question here
but got no answer since then. The project could probably not be uploaded beacuse of the size.
I uploaded it here:
Is this behaviour normal? Is it a bug? Please help.
This does not work for me. If I try binding the Visibility of the SciChartSurface to a IsFirstChartpane property in the pane, when I change the value, the pane only disappears, but the remaining charts does not resize, as i proposed here:
Thanks for your request. Yes this is the expected behavior. SciChartGroup is designed to always show the first pane and allow to hide/show all the other panes. The first IChildPane doesn’t get wrapped into SciChartGroupPane, so you cannot hide it like the other panes.
I would suggest binding Visibility of your SciChartSurface in the ItemTemplate to a property which indicates whether it is the main (first) item or not, and hide it if it is. As an example, you could take a look at the BaseChartPaneViewModel.IsFirstChartPane and its usage in the Multipane Stock Charts example.
Does this make sense?
hi, I’m currently trying to evaluate your product. I’m reading comments like you are making above and it is concerning me. I have a chart with 4 panes but I don’t want the user to be able to close these nor be able to move them up or down. This is not my requirement. I also want all of the panes to appear with equal height – as its stands its REALLY annoying to have to resize all of the panes so they can be seen. Above you are saying you would have to rewrite the control to allow this sort of flexibility? I’d be very sad if I’m let down by such a simple omission as the chart has otherwise been quite excellent. Surely you can allow this sort of adaptability? To summarise I want:
4 panes that are equally space vertically.
the panes resize equal when the window resizes
No X button on any pane
no move up/down button on any pane
If this is not something that your controls can do I’ll have to look elsewhere as there can only be other issues further down the line.
