A list of downloadable samples that demonstrate various features of the WPF Chart component.
Bar Chart With Mixed Data And Cross HairAll 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.
Polar Chart With Custom AnglesOne 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.
Real-time Chart: Network Server LoadThe 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.
Chart With Second X / Second Y AxisThe sample presents you with a typical bar chart, which uses top labels to render bar data and horizontal grid to make the chart easier to understand. The chart uses an additional axis - an Y2 axis, to display the auto scale in different measure units. The bar chart changes orientation with a mouse click and the Y2 axis turns into X2 axis.
