WPF Chart Component: DateTime Values

DateTime Values

Reading DateTime data is done easy with the control - you just need to provide lists with the DateTime values as you would do with any other numerica data type. The control parses the DateTime values and renders labels in format set by you. The sample also uses an X2- axis and renders the line series with scatters at data points and dashed pens.

WPF Chart Component: Hit Testing a Chart

Hit Test

The control provides a convenient HitTest method for all chart types. The method returns the element clicked by the user - or an array of chart elements if the mouse is over overlaying bars for instance. The returned chart element provides detailed information about its labels, data, location so you can precisely identify it and respond to the user's action as required by the logic of your application.

WPF Chart Component: Mixed Data Bar Chart

Bar Chart With Mixed Data And Cross Hair

All charts that use the Cartesian coordinate system - and bar charts in particular - can render both positive and negative data on any chart axis. In this sample you get acquainted with two other chart features - the cross hair and mouse drag. Use your mouse to change the value of a bar by dragging its top edge. The cross hair, when enabled, tracks the mouse and lets you measure precisely the height of any bar or the location of any element on the plot area.

WPF Chart Component: Multiple Axes

Multiple Axes

One of the most practical features of the Wpf Chart control is its support for unlimited number of axes of all types in graphics that use the Cartesian coordinate system. You can add as many X, X2, Y and Y2 axes as your application needs - and customize them separately from each other. Each series exposes properties, which identify the X/X2 and Y/Y2 axes the series uses. There's no need for a given axes to have a Series bound to it - you can add it just to help your users make sense of the chart data with a single glance.

WPF Chart Component: Combination Chart

Combination Chart

Combining bar and line series of any type is intuitive in MindFusion Wpf Chart. You just add the desired series to the Series collection. The control renders equally well both types of series on a single coordinate system. Each series preserves its own properties for data and appearance. Thus you can combine a bar series with a line series that has scatters on data points just like this sample demonstrates. A combination chart supports all other chart elements - like title, legends and background grid of your choice.

WPF Chart Component: Pie Chart

Pie Chart

Pie charts are among the most popular and the control provides you with the complete set of features to create the perfect pie chart for the most demanding WPF applications. You can specify the size and tension of a pie chart, how many detached pieces it has and which exactly are they. Labels inside and outside pie pieces let you render valuable data that will make your chart even more informative. A pie chart turns into doughnut with an arbitrary thickness with the help of a single property.

WPF Chart Component: 3D Pie Chart

3D Pie Chart

The 3D pie chart is far more than a flat pie chart in perspective. A 3D pie exposes properties, that let you choose how both detached and undetached pieces are rendered. You control every detail on how the 3D model is rendered - the size of the mesh, the depth of the model, the corner radius of pie pieces. This sample treats you to two types of pie behaviour - ChangePerspective or ChangeValue. This makes your 3D pie chart not only beautiful but also interactive.

WPF Chart Component: Radar Chart

Radar Chart

MindFusion radar charts have been developed to include every single feature you might ever need in such chart and this sample demonstrates most of the settings. You can change the alignment, offset and type of all types of labels - at the axes and on radar sections. Series can take a variety of styles and render scatters at data points. You can choose the start angle of the radar, the values on the numeric axes and even apply a visual effect to make the radar series look more polished.

WPF Chart Component: Polar Chart With Custom Angles

Polar Chart With Custom Angles

One of the amazing features of the polar chart control is the support of custom angles for data points. In this scenario you control precisely where a radar point appears - once with its radius, which is calculated based on the data for the point. Second time you set its angle via a separate property and have the freedom to place radar points anywhere on the chart and not only at the axes.

WPF Chart Component: Real time Chart

Real-time Chart : Music

The Real-time chart control has been designed and developed to render huge data sets without delay in performance. This sample parses data of a wav file as points and displays a vertical line that follows the location in the song that is currently being played. You can test yourself how easy the control handles big data when you load a music file of your choice no matter how long.

Real-time Chart: Network Server Load

The sample presents you with a typical scenario where a real time chart is needed - network server load graph. Here you can dynamically increase the number of points rendered per second, or add scatters - in both cases you'll see performance remains stable and speedy. This sample also uses the ability of the real-time chart control to render unlimited number of axes - there is a total of 5 axes on this chart. A few other UI controls let you play with the chart settings and test the various ways to customize a real time chart.

WPF Chart Component: Zoom

Zoom

Charts with tightly rendered points will definitely benefit from the advanced zoom features available in the control. The chart component lets you zoom by selecting the area with the mouse e.g. with an arbitrary amount. Each zoom step is saved so you can go back to the original chart state step-by-step. The control even supports chart restore, which gets back the initial chart with a single method call.
