Normal parallel Coordinates in WPF using MVVM pattern

Post by rakeshmurthy » Thu Jun 18, 2015 8:09 am

Hello everyone,

I am trying to plot 2D parallel co-ordinates chart using Lightingchart. However, I am clueless how to do it using lightning chart.
I have xaml page, viewmodel and model classes.
Please the below figure of how my parallel coordinates should look and have.

see attachment or see below link:

Please note: I am using WPF and MVVM pattern for development.

Thank you,
Rakesh Murthy

Hi,

we have a parallel coordinates chart in the demo application, but by using code-behind only.

Other stuff you can set in MVVM, but for data points, use code-behind.

Hello ArctionPasi,

I am sorry if i sound too silly, but, where is this demo application of yours? and the parallel coordinates controls can be used as a control in my application after loading respective dlls into the my visual studio 2012 express edition? does the example in your demo application can be debug to understand the logic of how to give data to the parallel co-ordinates?

Thank you

The demo application with Visual Studio projects is available on the hard drive and Windows Start Menu after you install our SDK.

Hello ArctionPasi,

I installed Arction and everything is ok. As per your manual, I also added that in the toolbox of my visual studio. However, Non of the charts are appearing in my toolbox under Arction. Non of the chart meaning, for example, parallel co-ordinates, bar series etc. non of these are listed in toolbox.

Please guide me how to make them appear in toolbox... so that i can use them.

Also, Problem is I am using the Visual Studio express 2012. Hence, I am not able to open your demo application projects in my visual studio. If possible, Please attach the parallel co-ordinates complete example (all xaml and its code-behind files) so that i can open in my vs2012 express edition.

Regards,
Rakesh.N

You should see a LightningChartUltimate in the Toolbox; the LightningChartUltimate is the chart and then you set your chart type either in the xaml or code behind. In the demo you can see the code that does that.

I am now able to create the parallel co-ordinates in my application. Thank you very much for the replies.

Do we we have to manually do scale to y axis ? or is there any automatic scaling function available?

Thank you

One of the best examples I've seen that shows axis scaling is the Signal Reader in the 'Real-time Monitoring" section in the Demo program. I'd take a look at the source code in there.
