Hi, Support team.

I’m using MVVM pattern and trying to implement multi-chart which can insert Box Annotations at the same time into each chart .
So I’m testing in SciChart Example [“DigitalAnalyzerPerformanceDemo”] to know how to implement this.

But what i only got is just looping through and create annotation for each ChannelViewModels.

In the Demo, the VisibleRange ‘XRange’ is shared to all the ChannelViewModels by binding TwoWay-mode in ParentViewModel without looping for each ChildViewModels.
Like this, I wonder is there ways to apply BoxAnnotation all the ChannelViewModel at the same time by binding in ParentViewModel.

    <!-- BottomAxis -->
        <s:SciChartSurface Grid.Column="1">
            <s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
                <s:NumericAxis Height="30"
                               AxisAlignment="Bottom"
                               VisibleRange="{Binding XRange, Mode=TwoWay}"                 
                               LabelProvider="{StaticResource TimeLabelProvider}"
                               MajorTickLineStyle="{StaticResource TimeAxisMajorTickLineStyle}"
                               MinorTickLineStyle="{StaticResource TimeAxisMinorTickLineStyle}"/>
            </s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
            <s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
                <s:NumericAxis Visibility="Collapsed"/>
            </s:SciChartSurface.YAxis>
        </s:SciChartSurface>
    </Grid>

    <!--  Create an X Axis with GrowBy  -->
     <s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
           <s:NumericAxis Style="{StaticResource HiddenAxisStyle}"
                    VisibleRangeLimitMode="Min"
                    VisibleRangeLimit="0,0"
                    VisibleRange="{Binding DataContext.XRange, Mode=TwoWay, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType=ItemsControl, AncestorLevel=2}}"/>
     </s:SciChartSurface.XAxis>

I tried to bind annotation in ParentViewModel like XRange Binding method, But it doesn’t work.


This is View.xaml.

Hi Hyunji,

Thank you for contacting us!
We’ve investigated your inquiry.

Your code is correct except for the Annotations collection binding.
The collection in the main view model should be bound using the AnnotationsBinding markup extension and Mode=OneWay.

This will allow you to use a single shared collection of annotation view models for all SciChartSurfaces.
As a result, each BoxAnnotation (on different surfaces) will have the same BoxAnnotationViewModel as the data context.
All properties of the BoxAnnotationViewModel (X1, Y1, X2, Y2, IsSelected, etc.) will be synchronized between multiple BoxAnnotations.

Attached is an example that shows how to use a single shared collection of annotation view models.

With best regards,
Lex
