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



We are looking at buying a license of SciChart mostly because we need to implement high performance real time dashboards on a discrete event simulation application.
Performance-wise we noticed that SciChart is very good, handling well large amount of data in a short period of time.
However, we also need to have the ability to customize some of the aspects of the charts like annotations, legends, colors etc. I did a little bit of research (not much though) and could not find an easy way to add text to the Y axis to tell the user what each bar represents (see attached image).

Looking at the attached image, do you see anything that we won’t be able to achieve using SciChart?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Andresca,

Text on the YAxis (instead of numeric values) can be achieved by the LabelProvider feature in SciChart. LabelProviders allow you to transform the numeric values into string values.

Our example here contains a LabelProvider, as does this one.

In our new SciChart v4 Documentation (temporarily hosted as word document at, soon to be hosted online), we have an extensive section on LabelProviders, how to use them to format strings. Please search the docs for LabelProvider.

If you have any questions, just ask!

Best regards,
