I want to add annotations programmatically. I need to add line with arrow and textbox at Y1 and X1 of a line. It creates pointed annotation.

Hey guys,

I’m looking at changing the Numeric Axes on the Right and Left axes of my Chart, to right-align the Text within the Axis Labels.

I noticed this topic where Yuriy hinted that in 2.0 this would be a supported feature, but can’t seem to see what it would be:
http://http://www.scichart.com/questions/question/x-and-y-axis-formatting/
The “work around” featured in that topic doens’t seem to change anything in my situation.

I have tried setting FlowDirection to “RightToLeft”, which does the job, but has some ugly placement side-effects.

Is there something I’ve overlooked?

Thanks,
Miles

How do I implement zooming in real time charts. The examples are all static data, and the zooming works, and a couple of links I found, do not explain it very well.

How can I accomplish zooming on a real time SciChart?

I currently catch the MouseLeftButtonDown event like this:

<s:SciChartSurface 
                    s:SciChartGroup.VerticalChartGroup="SharedChartGroup"
                    MouseLeftButtonDown="UIElement_OnMouseLeftButtonDown"
                    SeriesSource="{Binding ChartSeriesViewModels}">

But the event only fires when I click outside the chart area in an empty area (where the title goes). How can I modify the code so that the event fires when I click anywhere on the surface on the chart?

Also, how can I determine on which chartsurface the mouse click occurred?

I have the following code and want to move this portion to code-behind but have problems understanding how I can programmatically set the properties in Style:

<s:SciChartSurface.ChartModifier>

                <!-- Provides Interactivity -->
                <s:RubberBandXyZoomModifier IsAnimated = "False" IsXAxisOnly = "True" ExecuteOn = "MouseRightButton"/>
                <s:ZoomPanModifier XyDirection="XYDirection" ClipModeX = "ClipAtExtents" ExecuteOn ="MouseLeftButton" />
                <s:MouseWheelZoomModifier XyDirection = "XYDirection"/>
                <s:ZoomExtentsModifier IsAnimated = "False" ExecuteOn = "MouseDoubleClick" />
                <s:XAxisDragModifier  DragMode = "Scale"/>
                <s:CursorModifier SourceMode="AllSeries"  UseInterpolation="True"/>

                <!-- Provides selection of series and custom styling to the selected series -->
                <s:SeriesSelectionModifier ReceiveHandledEvents="True" SelectionChanged="SeriesSelectionModifier_OnSelectionChanged">
                    <s:SeriesSelectionModifier.SelectedSeriesStyle>
                        <Style TargetType="s:BaseRenderableSeries">
                            <Setter Property="SeriesColor" Value="White"/>
                            <Setter Property="PointMarkerTemplate">
                                <Setter.Value>
                                    <ControlTemplate>
                                        <s:EllipsePointMarker Fill="#FF00DC" Stroke="White" Width="7" Height="7"/>
                                    </ControlTemplate>
                                </Setter.Value>
                            </Setter>
                        </Style>
                    </s:SeriesSelectionModifier.SelectedSeriesStyle>
                </s:SeriesSelectionModifier>

                <!-- Provides a data source for the legend control -->
                <s:LegendModifier ShowLegend="True" GetLegendDataFor="SelectedSeries" Margin="10"/>

            </s:ModifierGroup>
        </s:SciChartSurface.ChartModifier>

Particularly the SeriesSelectionModifier and its property setters seem difficult for me to implement in code-behind. Can you please provide some sample code how I would actually implement the SeriesSelectionModifier with above Property Setters above in C# code rather than in XAML?

Thanks

Hi,

I have a chart for a temperature line using FastLineRenderableSeries and a couple of HorizontalLineAnnotation to show some thresholds for that line.
When I call DataSeriesSet.InvalidateParentSurface(RangeMode.ZoomToFit) the chart zoom to fit the data from the data series (which is fine).
Now I would like to be able to zoom to the chart extents but including those threshold line. What would be the best way to accomplish this?

Screen shots attached.

Chart with RangeMode.ZoomToFit: c1
Chart manually zoomed out to show threshold line: c2
(the chart is that small green dot that is showing just bellow the lower threshold)

The goal is to be able to provide a feature that my users can zoom chart so that both data set and thresholds are shown. I guess a variation of the current zoom to fit but taking into account the annotation lines.

Thanks!

Hi,

Annotation chart sample Drag Horizontal Threshold allow us to draw custom controllable color for the data series. The same way I need to draw the chart surface background color. I couldn’t find the appropriate API to do this job. Could you advise how to draw surface background color.

Update:

Attached the graph image, I like to draw the grey and white backgrounds based on horizontal and vertical line positions.

Thanks.

how can i apply styling for legend in legend modifier? i want to apply the following style

I have a YAxis(NumericAxis) that indicates price, now I want to set different color to the label text(please see the uploaded image):

I’ve seen the ILabelProvider, but it seems to set string format.
How should I do?

I looked at the Multi-pane stock charts example and fail to understand how I can have the height of my panes change dynamically during runtime as function of updated window size (SizeChanged event) or when adjusting the number panes in the chartgroup? Problem with the below code is that when I resize the window only the first pane in chartgroup is changed not any of the other panes. What am I missing? Do I need to also bind the SciChartSurface.Height within the ItemTemplate to Height for each individual pane height? (I commented out the Height property binding in SciChartSurface. Would I need that?). Either way the panes do not resize when the whole window resizes. I made sure the events all fire and “ChartGroupHeight” is properly updated each time the window is resized.

I implemented the following in my view:

<i:Interaction.Triggers>
    <i:EventTrigger EventName="SizeChanged">
        <mvvm:EventToCommand 
            Command="{Binding UserControlResizedCommand, Mode=OneWay}"
            EventArgsConverterParameter="{Binding ElementName=LayoutRoot}"
            PassEventArgsToCommand="True" />
    </i:EventTrigger>
</i:Interaction.Triggers>

<UserControl.Resources>

    <!-- This allows setting the Height of a pane from a viewmodel -->
    <Style x:Key="ChartPaneStyle" TargetType="s:SciChartGroupPane">
        <Setter Property="Height" Value="{Binding ChartGroupHeight, Mode=TwoWay}"/>
    </Style>

    <!-- A number of converters which change parameters of charts based on the IsFirstChartPane property -->
    <resources:BoolToValueConverter x:Key="MinorsPerMajorConverter" TrueValue="4" FalseValue="2"/>
    <resources:BoolToValueConverter x:Key="MaxAutoTicksConverter" TrueValue="8" FalseValue="4"/>
    <resources:BoolToValueConverter x:Key="GrowByConverter" >
    <resources:BoolToValueConverter.TrueValue>
        <s:DoubleRange Min="0.02" Max="0.02"/>
    </resources:BoolToValueConverter.TrueValue>
    <resources:BoolToValueConverter.FalseValue>
        <s:DoubleRange Min="0.02" Max="0.02"/>
    </resources:BoolToValueConverter.FalseValue>
    </resources:BoolToValueConverter>

</UserControl.Resources>

Hi guys!

I have a bit of a challenge with annotations. I am running an mvvm application in which you can create annotations dynamically. I can’t seem to get a grip on how to manage these in a good way. My current “workaround” is to handle onAnnotationCreated and use that to add an object to my viewmodel. But then, as my underlying data changes the chart gets redrawn so I need to handle a load event on the scichart and then redraw them based on the information in my view model. Any thoughts on a better way to solve this?

However now the story gets even more interesting. I need to give my users the option of changing color, stroke and such on these annotations. How could I do this? And then how would I manage to keep my viewmodel updated with these changes?

Hi I’m just wondering if there is anyway to force Y values to show up on the chart for all data points like a Histogram. I’ve attached screenshots to show what I would like the final screen to look like (ChartTest) so you have an idea. Hoping there is a way to force rollover to always show, or maybe have axis markers on the bottom that can display the y value at each x point. Hopefully you understand what I’m trying to achieve. Thanks.

How do you enumerate child charts on a chart group?

My purpose is to try to call ZoomExtents() for each chart in a group after I an event is triggered from the ViewModel which reflects on code-behind of the Window.

Thanks.

I want to implement a PopUpWindowAction and InteractionRequestTrigger via the Micrsoft PRISM Libray:
But it starts with basic problems:
I’m not able to create a correct invokeCommandAction, the RaisItemSelection method gets never executed?

Xaml:

<s:SciChartSurface>
  <i:Interaction.Triggers>
                <i:EventTrigger EventName="MouseDoubleClick">
                    <i:InvokeCommandAction Command="{Binding MouseDoubleClickCommand}" CommandParameter="{}" />
                </i:EventTrigger>
    </i:Interaction.Triggers>
</<s:SciChartSurface>

xaml.cs:

MouseDoubleClickCommand = new DelegateCommand<object>(RaiseItemSelection);
 private void RaiseItemSelection(object obj)
        {
        }

I’m using the latest version of the chart. when I run everything works fine, but when I open a XAML file with a chart the error window has:

The name “ZoomPanModifier” does not exist in the namespace “clr-namespace:Abt.Controls.SciChart;assembly=Abt.Controls.SciChart.Wpf”

And I get one of these for each control such as ZoomPanModifier, TextAnnotation, SeriesSelectionModifier etc…

How do I fix this issue?

Do you have any demo or code to show how to make multiple line charts of time series to share same X axis(which is time).

I also tried the demo of Sync Multi Chart Mouse. But, there is a gap between two charts when I move my mouse, which looks not nice.

Hi,

I am trying to build a chart with two series in it. One is an OHLC chart with the time on the X axis and price on the Y Axis. The other is an Bar chart with the price as the X Axis and an integer scale for the YAxis. The bar chart will need be have horizontal columns though which will need to align with the prices on the OHLC series. I have attached an image here with what the chart should look like, is there a way to achieve this ?

I’ve created an application with MVVM in mind and managed to create a simple, working graph with SciChart that displays the data needed.
I’ve also seen some features (https://www.scichart.com/customer-case-study-blueshift-one-system/) which we’ll be planning on implementing, designing it to fit our own needs of course.

I’m wondering if there are some limitations (and perhaps improvements in later releases), that we could keep in mind while continuing to plan and develop our application with SciChart and MVVM?

Hi Guys

I am using an ItemsControl to display a collection of SciStockCharts. I want to be able to use a single SciChartOverview (not part of the Item Template) to set the visible range on all of the charts displayed in the ItemsControl. Is this possible and if so how would I go about achieving it.

Thanks in advance

Ian Carson

I am using WPF SciChart version 1.3.1.1107 under the MVVM pattern.
I’ve included some sample code from a couple of my view models for reference purposes but it identical to sample code I copied from your examples.

My problem is that the data values arrive in a non sorted date time order and as a result my chart line does not connect the points based on the xaxis datetime value, but instead connects the points based on when the codes adds the points to the data series.

Do you have a feature that will allow me to plot a line based on a date time values?

    IDataSeries dataSeries = ChartDataSeriesSet.AddSeries();

    private IDataSeriesSet _chartDataSeriesSet = new DataSeriesSet();
    public IDataSeriesSet ChartDataSeriesSet
    {
      get { return _chartDataSeriesSet; }
      set

Hi

I want to override the default AxisLabelTemplate for a DateTimeAxis beyond the normal circumstances.
Setting the AxisLabelTemplate to a StaticResource is easy enough, but all I have inside the Template is the CursorFormattedDataValue and I want to be able to send in something more then a simple string.

<ControlTemplate x:Key="RolloverModifierAxisLabelTemplateDefault">
    <Border Background="LightGray" 
            Opacity="0.80" 
            BorderThickness="0"
            CornerRadius="5"
            Padding="2"
            Visibility="{Binding IsXAxis, Converter={StaticResource BoolToVisibilityConverter}}">
        <TextBlock Text="{Binding CursorFormattedDataValue}" />
    </Border>
</ControlTemplate>

Extending the LabelProviderBase gives me the opportunity to override the FormatCursorLabel method, but it only returns a string and not an object and therefore I can not pass my own data structure to be used inside the AxisLabelTemplate.

How can we solve this issue? Is there a workaround, or is this something you need to implement?

Hi

I don’t understand how to disable dragging an annotation with mouse. I didn’t find anything in your documentation.

I have a simple annotation as follows:

                                <s:HorizontalLineAnnotation x:Name="line" IsEditable="False" IsManipulationEnabled="False"  IsAttached="True" Y1="2020" ShowLabel="True" LabelValue="" LabelPlacement="TopRight" Stroke="Red"/>

tried with IsEditable=”False” IsManipulationEnabled=”False” IsAttached=”True” but nothing seems to work.

Could you please help me ?
thank you

I am creating custom controls and when I inherit from any annotation class (not AnnotationBase), public override void OnApplyTemplate() is called but any this.Template.FindName always returns null. If I inherit directly from ContentControl everything works correctly. I have tried inheriting from CustomAnnotation, BoxAnnotation, AnchorPointAnnotation and several others, all give the same result. I have checked the annotation classes and they all eventually inherit from ContentControl.

I’m trying to dynamically create chart surfaces and renderable series, but I’m having trouble binding one of the axes to another one, like you would do with this code in XAML:

<s:CategoryDateTimeAxis VisibleRange="{Binding ElementName=priceChart,
                                                                    Path=XAxis.VisibleRange,
                                                                    Mode=TwoWay}" />

I need to accomplish the same thing directly in C# but there are no methods related to binding at all. From the MSDN reference pages I’ve seen that any element that extends FrameworkElement has the Binding property, but it seems the axes don’t extend from that.

Could someone help me out in binding this axis to another axis (for the record, the other one is defined in XAML)?

Hey super helpful and awesome SciCharts gurus,
I’m trying to create a graph that has usable data in a specific range, say 80-100, and I’m wondering if there is a way to lock the y axis range absolutely? This would override any kind of updating that ZoomPan or other modifiers might try to do.

Thanks!

When displaying a graph in a chart, I would like to set my own range and tickmark values. So when setting a range from -0.15 to 0.65 with the majortickmark set to 0.1, I would like to see Yvalues of 0.65, 0.55, 0.45, 0.35 till -0.15.
When using it now, it will move the axis to display nice round numbers
(see green graph in the attachment).
How can I do this?

Thanks,

I have a realtime linear chart with multiple x/y axes. When I am zooming the surface, I am changing the X/Y AutoRange mode from AutoRange.Always to AutoRange.Never, which allows me to have Modifiers zooming and panning on a realtime AutoRange chart.

After, I want to re-enable AutoRange when ZoomExtents (double click) occurs.

See below:

    public class ZoomExtentsXAxesModifier : ZoomExtentsModifier
    {
        private Point _startPoint;
        private bool _isMouseDoubleClick;

        public override void OnModifierMouseDown(ModifierMouseArgs e)
        {
            base.OnModifierMouseDown(e);

            if(e.Modifier == MouseModifier.Ctrl) return;

            if (e.MouseButtons == MouseButtons.Left)
                _startPoint = e.MousePoint;

            _isMouseDoubleClick = false;
        }

        public override void OnModifierMouseUp(ModifierMouseArgs e)
        {
            base.OnModifierMouseUp(e);

            if (e.Modifier == MouseModifier.Ctrl) return;

            if (e.MouseButtons != MouseButtons.Left || _startPoint == e.MousePoint || _isMouseDoubleClick) return;

            using (ParentSurface.SuspendUpdates())
            {
                foreach (var axise in XAxes.Where(axise => axise.AutoRange != AutoRange.Never))
                {
                    axise.AutoRange = AutoRange.Never;
                    axise.Zoom(_startPoint.X, e.MousePoint.X);
                }

                foreach (var axise in YAxes.Where(axise => axise.AutoRange != AutoRange.Never))
                {
                    axise.AutoRange = AutoRange.Never;
                    axise.Zoom(_startPoint.Y, e.MousePoint.Y);
                }
            }
        }

        public override void OnModifierDoubleClick(ModifierMouseArgs e)
        {
            base.OnModifierDoubleClick(e);

            if (e.Modifier == MouseModifier.Ctrl) return;

            foreach (var axise in XAxes)
                axise.AutoRange = AutoRange.Always;

            foreach (var axise in YAxes)
                axise.AutoRange = AutoRange.Always;

            _isMouseDoubleClick = true;
        }
    }

For the one chart it is working ok, but when I have more then 2 charts, it is zooming incorect? What can I solve this? I need to recieve one event, when user is zooming, panning or resizing chart. Is it possible?

Thanks,
Arthur

Hi,

I’ve got the following scenario that I need to implement and it would be very nice if you could give me a jump-start. I need to bind the x-axes values represented by 2 vertical lines and the y-axis values represented by 2 horizontal lines to a viewmodel, so that the values inside the viewmodel change when moving the lines per mouse on the screen and the other way around (see mockup for how it should look like). I think the rollover modifier could be usable for this, but I need some pseudo code or an example app on how to bind the rollover modifiers value to the viewmodel and how to display 4 rollover modifiers on the chart surface.

Thanks

Hi,
I have a very strange problem. When starting my application with referenced SciChart DLL in “Release” mode all works fine.

If I start in DEBUG (Any CPU) mode, I get an error when loading the DLL’s and the application crashes:
“‘SeverVisual.exe’ (Managed (v4.0.30319)): Loaded ‘p:\Projects_ITS\project_sever\SeverVisual\bin\Debug\Abt.Controls.SciChart.Wpf.dll’

In Debugx86 the error message also appears in the output window, but the application can start.

Thanks for help!

I wonder how I can disable the x-Axis from automatically re-scaling when panning a series beyond the available data range? The only time when axes scales change should be when I modify the axes scales via mouse on the respective axis itself. But when I pan a series I do not want any changes in axes scale to occur. How can I accomplish that? Thanks

I have a case where there can be hundreds or even thousands of potential series on the surface.
When I use the LegendModifier, I only see the first 20 or so series.
What would it take to display a scrollbar so that the user can see all available series?

Hi folks,

I need to recalculate a number of annotations after a rubberband zoom operation has occurred. I tried handling the chart’s Rendered() event, but this seems to happen too often.

I saw something in the documentation about subscribing to sciChartSurface.Services.GetService, but I’m not sure where or how to do this.

What’s the best way to detect zoom operations? (Ideally this would detect explicit setting of the axis visible ranges too, but since I trigger those manually I can call my routine manually there if necessary.)

Thanks,
–George

I need normal (not categorical) x-axes and hence need the SciChartSurface rather than SciStockChart but SciChartSurface does not seem to have the property “IsXAxisVisible” and a number rather vital properties. How can I create a multi pane chart group where I can use SciChartSurface and still retain the ability of, for example, a shared x-Axis?

Thanks

Hi all,

As the title indicates, I am trying to get mouse cursor position (Coordinates) from a SciChartSurface in MVVM manner.

I have lots of data bindings to my chart properties in my View Model in the background. This following snipped is a copy of my XAML code in which I have all the data bindings set:

<sci:SciChartSurface Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0"
                         RenderableSeries="{Binding SciChartSeriesViewModels}"     
                         Padding="0,8,0,2"                                         
                         sci:ThemeManager.Theme="BrightSpark"                                       
                         YAxes="{Binding SciChartYAxesCollection,Mode=TwoWay}"                                         
                         AutoRangeOnStartup="True"                                       
                         Annotations="{Binding ChartAnnotations}"                                     
                         Name="ApplicationSciChart"                                       
                         ChartModifier ="{Binding ChartModifierGroup}"
                         BorderBrush="LightSlateGray"
                         BorderThickness="1"
                         Visibility="{Binding ChartVisibility}">

        <sci:SciChartSurface.XAxis>
            <sci:TimeSpanAxis AxisTitle="Time"
                              AutoRange="Once" GrowBy="0.03,0.001"
                              TextFormatting=""/>
        </sci:SciChartSurface.XAxis>

  </sci:SciChartSurface>

As can be seen from the code above, the ChartModifier property is one of the items that has Data binding to an instance of a ModiferGroup I have created in my View-Model in the background. The following code is a method that adds members to that ModiferGroup (called ChartModiferGroup in my View-Model):

 private void CreateChartModifiers()
    {
        var rubberBandXyZoomModifier = new RubberBandXyZoomModifier
        {
            ExecuteOn = SciChart.Charting.ChartModifiers.ExecuteOn.MouseLeftButton,
            RubberBandFill = (SolidColorBrush)(new BrushConverter().ConvertFrom("#33FFFFFF")),
            RubberBandStroke = Brushes.SteelBlue, 
            RubberBandStrokeDashArray = new DoubleCollection {2.0, 2.0}
        };

        var zoomPanModifier = new ZoomPanModifier
        {
            ExecuteOn = SciChart.Charting.ChartModifiers.ExecuteOn.MouseMiddleButton,
            ClipModeX = SciChart.Charting.ClipMode.None
        };

        var yAxisDragModifier = new YAxisDragModifier
        {
            DragMode = SciChart.Charting.AxisDragModes.Scale
        };

        var xAxisDragModifier = new XAxisDragModifier
        {
            DragMode = SciChart.Charting.AxisDragModes.Pan
        };

        var mouseWheelZoomModifier = new MouseWheelZoomModifier();

        var zoomExtentsModifier = new ZoomExtentsModifier
        {
            ExecuteOn = SciChart.Charting.ChartModifiers.ExecuteOn.MouseDoubleClick
        };

        var cursorModifier = new CursorModifier
        {
            ReceiveHandledEvents = true,
            ShowAxisLabels = false
        };


        var probeline = new VerticalLineAnnotation()
        {
            Stroke = Brushes.LightSlateGray,
            IsEditable = true,
            ShowLabel = true,
            LabelPlacement = LabelPlacement.Axis,
            Visibility = Visibility.Visible,
            IsHidden = false,
            IsEnabled = true,
            X1 = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(-100),
            YAxisId = "Triggered",
            StrokeDashArray = new DoubleCollection { 2.0,2.0},
            StrokeThickness = 1
        };

        var verticalSliceModifier = new VerticalSliceModifier
        {
            IsEnabled = true,
            ShowAxisLabels = true,
            Style = probeline.Style
        };
        verticalSliceModifier.VerticalLines.Add(probeline);


        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(rubberBandXyZoomModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(rubberBandXyZoomModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(zoomPanModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(yAxisDragModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(xAxisDragModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(mouseWheelZoomModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(zoomExtentsModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(verticalSliceModifier);
        ChartModifierGroup.ChildModifiers.Add(cursorModifier);
    }

What I am trying to do next, is to add functionality in my application, such that I can add more VerticalSliceModifiers to my ChartModifierGroup when a button is pressed. In order to do that, I will require having access to the Mouse cursor position of my SciChartSurface to set the X1 property of the VerticalLineAnnotation, that would be used for the VerticalSliceModifiers (to be created).

In simple words, every time I press a button, I need the position of the mouse pointer to get captured and used as the location of the new VerticalSliceModifer that I am going to create.

I have already read many of the examples and documentation of Sci-Chart such as: Vertical Slice Tooltips Example. However, in this example, the mouse pointer location is accessed is under the xaml.cs and not inside an actual View-Model.

I was wondering if anybody could let me know how I can get access to my SciChartSurface mouse pointer position using true MVVM model.

I’m using a number of modifiers to allow the user to pan and zoom, including a ZoomExtentsModifier so the user can double-click to “reset” the chart back to its initial layout. However it seems to ignore the VisibleRanges I’ve got on the axes. How can I get it to honour these?

Here is an example of one of my axes, just in case one of its attributes is preventing the modifier from working properly:-

<SciChart:NumericAxis AxisAlignment="Left" AutoRange="False" DrawMajorTicks="False" DrawMinorTicks="False" VisibleRange="{Binding YAxisRange, Mode=TwoWay}" DrawMinorGridLines="False" DrawLabels="True" AxisTitle="Foo"/>

(I seem to remember being told a while ago that the VisibleRange binding must be TwoWay otherwise it won’t work. Is that correct?)

Thanks in advance
Andy

Hi

I’m having trouble making the RolloverModifier TooltipLabels stay inside the graphs canvas.

screenshot

As you can see on the left most graph the colored sqaures and some of the digits has fallen outside the graphs canvas.
Also what are the TooltipLabels rules for clustering together, and rules for which side of the RolloverMarker the labels should appear on?

Still having a problem here… After setting the ClipModifierSurface on the SciChartSurface to False the time axis no longer clips the TooltipLabels.
But the graph itself clips the TooltipLabels when the label gets to large.

How do I make the labels stay inside the graph? As there is a lot of free space to the right of the labels.

Hi,

I am trying to create a chart with additional information, similarly as discussed in this question:
https://www.scichart.com/questions/question/correlating-metadata-with-datapoints/
It works fine for simple information, such as enums, that I can cast into a double (see also the example provided in the question mentioned above).

However it seems that there is a restriction on the generic class XyzDataSeries.
Whenever I try to use a different data types for TY and TZ

XyzDataSeries<DateTime, double, int>

I get the following exception at runtime:

SciChartSurface didn’t render, because an exception was thrown:

Message: Das Objekt des Typs "Abt.Controls.SciChart.Wpf.StoreEditor1[System.Int32]" kann nicht in Typ "System.Collections.Generic.IList1[System.Double]" umgewandelt werden.

  Stack Trace:    bei Abt.Controls.SciChart.Wpf.NetworkResolver1.Execute(ResamplingMode resamplingMode, IndexRange pointRange, Int32 viewportWidth, Boolean isFifo, Boolean isCategoryAxis, IList xColumn, IList yColumn, Nullable1 dataIsSorted, Nullable1 dataIsEvenlySpaced, Nullable1 dataIsDisplayedAs2d, IRange visibleXRange)
   bei Abt.Controls.SciChart.Model.DataSeries.XyzDataSeries`3.ToPointSeries(ResamplingMode resamplingMode, IndexRange pointRange, Int32 viewportWidth, Boolean isCategoryAxis, Nullable1 dataIsDisplayedAs2D, IRange visibleXRange, IPointResamplerFactory factory)
   bei Abt.Controls.SciChart.Wpf.MethodManager.ListStream(AxisCollection urlAvailable, IRenderableSeries lockInitialized, RenderPassInfo valuesHeader, IPointResamplerFactory addressMap, IDataSeries& nextName, IndexRange& previousValues, IPointSeries& syncObjectHandle)
   bei Abt.Controls.SciChart.Wpf.MethodManager.ListStream(ISciChartSurface urlAvailable, Size lockInitialized)
   bei Abt.Controls.SciChart.Wpf.MethodManager.RenderLoop(IRenderContext2D renderContext)
   bei Abt.Controls.SciChart.Visuals.SciChartSurface.DoDrawingLoop()

Sorry for the german. The message translates to:

The object of type [...] cannot be casted into type [...]

I’m quite confused about this. It works nicely, if I use the same data types for TY and TZ .

XyzDataSeries<DateTime, double, double>
XyzDataSeries<DateTime, int, int>

This is not what I would expect from a generic type with three types.
If the types for Y and Z values need to be of the same type, the class should rather look something like this: XyzDataSeries<TX, TYZ>.
The API documentation does not mention anything about this. It only states that the types need to be IComparables, which seems not the full truth.

This is a problem for me, because I have more complex metadata than a double, which I want to reference over the Z value.
But I don’t want to use an index of type double. I’d rather use a GUID or even add the metadata object itself as Z value.

Is this by design or is this something that could be fixed in the future?

Do you have a suggestion how to best reference point related metadata (without having to implement my own DataSeries)?

Hi!

Got a wierd issue. My client is installing my application (built with Scichart) and everything works fine, except on the laptop of this one particular guy, where the zoom does a wierd thing. It zooms the axes, but the graph is not moving. I’m quite sure there is nothing wrong with my application as it works everywhere else, but can any of you think of anything that I should check on this guys machine? I am at a complete blank here…

Thanks for helping me out….

Have a good day.

I’m working with scichartsurface, where I’m drawing a lot of lines with the help of IRenderContext2D. I’ve found out that this way of drawing took too much memory. For example when I displayed only surface, it took only ~80 Mb (Image 1), but when I displayed the graph using checkbox, began to scroll and pan my graph, the usage of memory increased to ~160 Mb (Image 2).
What is the reason of such behaviour?

Thanks in advance

I have got a CustomTextAnnotation like in this example CustomTextAnnotation
I added a Rendertransform like this.

<s:TextAnnotation.RenderTransform>
    <RotateTransform Angle="90"/>
</s:TextAnnotation.RenderTransform>

But the AnchorPoint is not used as rotation center.
I thought of using ToCoordinate() but need a calculator for that which is not available within CustomTextAnnotation.

What is best practice to achive the requested rotation in sciChart?

I am considering applying server-side licensing for my javerScript application.

In the document below, there is a phrase “Our server-side licensing component is written in C++.”
(https://support-dev.scichart.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/17256/42/)

However, there is only asp.net sample code on the provided github.
(https://github.com/ABTSoftware/SciChart.JS.Examples/tree/master/Sandbox/demo-dotnet-server-licensing)

I wonder if there is a sample code implemented in C++ for server-side licensing.

Can you provide c++ sample code?
Also, are there any examples to run on Ubuntu?

I am trying to add Zoom capability to application that is based on ECG Monitor sample. As ECG Monitor manages VisibleRange, I need to stop setting VisibleRange when zoom is started. I am setting flag in RubberBandXyZoomModifier.OnModifierMouseDown.

I’m wondering what the established methods would be for the following scenario:

You generate data in your own assembly and dump it into an XyDataSeries and point or line render series with an IChartSeriesViewModel object and bind that using the SeriesSource api.

But it is relatively common to have additional metdata about a given datapoint that is keyed to something other than an X or Y value. For example, the plot may be based on the a computed number that is independent of a time value, but you still want to display the time value for that chart in the rollover tooltip.

What are the options for dealing with this in scichart?

Best and thanks!
