Charting for WPF, V1.9

MindFusion is pleased to announce a new release of Charting for WPF programming component. Here is an overview of the new features:

Real-time Chart
The RealTimeChart control is optimized to render animated line chart graphics of large amounts of data. That’s implemented by moving already rendered elements from the WPF visual tree to a cache bitmap, relying that new data is added incrementally rather than changing coordinates of old data points. The library also offers various customization options for the chart – scatters, multiple legends, multiple Y and Y2 axes, custom labels, tooltips, grid.

3D Charts

  • All 3D charts now support unlimited number of series.
  • New property Lights holds a collection of Light objects instead of the LightType property.
  • Detailed hit testing, which returns a ChartHitTestResult3D that contains the clicked 3D point, the normalized 3D point, a collection of chart elements (if found), and the nearest peak (in surface charts).
  • AllowMeshSelection property, which when enabled allows selection of mesh objects with a mouse click.
  • The MeshSelectionBrush sets the brush for the selection.
  • Behavior3D property, which lets you choose how the chart responds to mouse interactions.
  • Improved performance for all chart types.

Surface Charts

  • SurfaceType property, which sets whether scatters or surface is drawn.
  • SurfaceSeries.GroundLevelMargin property, which sets the GroundLevel-offset.
  • Each Series3D can be clipped in a given range with the ClipMinimum and ClipMaximum properties.
  • TextureType property sets the texture of the chart – Brush or ColorMap.
  • New ColorMapList property, which sets a Color map with arbitrary colors and offsets.
  • CloseModelFigure property, which closes the sides of the model if enabled.
