SciChart® the market leader in Fast WPF Charts, WPF 3D Charts, and iOS Chart & Android Chart Components


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.

Hi Yuriy!

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:

    Hi Kristóf, unfortunately, that’s how SciChartGroup behaves by default. There isn’t any easy way to change it’s behavior to the desired one without rewriting the control. Thank you for understanding. Best regards, Yuriy

Hi Kristóf,

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?

Best regards,
