YAxes and Series RemoveAt

Post by ehdrnsep » Mon Mar 23, 2015 6:11 am

How are you?

I was sent an e-mail.
But no reply and write for the forum.

The first question.
I want to fix the X-Axis Label from real-time charts.
Was attached my sample project.
To draw a fixed X-axis Label in real-time charts should you proceed as sample projects?

The second question.
This Exception occur in the following scenarios.

1. Add Multiple Series and YAxes.
2. Remove using a "RemoveAt" method Series and YAxes in the middle.

The sample project was attached.
My OS: Windows7 64bit
VS: VisualStudio 2013 Professional

Thank you.

we replied to you by e-mail today morning. Please note different European and Asian time zones, and our office is closed during weekend. There can be 0.5 - 2 days processing queue.

First question

Rendering labels with GDI over the chart is not a good approach, because of flickering and performance hit.
I think you want to keep the X axis range the same all the time, even if the data scrolls in the chart. You can achieve that easier by adding 2nd X axis and setting it's range from 0...10 seconds. Attach the series to 1st X axis, and hide that axis by setting ViewXY.XAxes[0].Visible = false. In monitoring, increment 1st X axis ScrollPosition, but leave 2nd X axis ScrollPosition as it is. That's probably the easiest and performance-efficient way.

Second question
After deleting, the series must be assigned with new AssignYAxisIndexes again, otherwise they get wrong axis reference.

Like this:

private void btnRemove_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
ViewXY viewXY = this.chart.ViewXY;
if (viewXY.YAxes.Count != 0)

//Change AssignYAxisIndex for remaining SampleDataSeries
foreach (SampleDataSeries series in chart.ViewXY.SampleDataSeries)
series.AssignYAxisIndex = viewXY.SampleDataSeries.IndexOf(series);

General tips
We strongly recommend using
chart.BeginUpdate...chartEndUpdate around the code you update the chart. Like that, the chart renders faster and doesn't flicker.
