Realtime plotting - coding examples

mike 6 years ago in Documentation updated 6 years ago 2

I think it would be extremely useful to add several offical(by oxyplot experts) real-time high performance plotting examples to

It seems there is a high demand for such functionality and zero "official" examples.
There is a great confusion on how to do it correctly with all the performance issues in mind. 


Where is the example browser?

Connor Joseph Early 4 years ago in Documentation 0

I've already looked here, but the link for the example browser doesn't work. 

I've also opened a solution in Visual Studio and I can't find the "ExampleBrowser" project in it, as the article would suggest.

What's the current state of these items?

Export without Invalidating plot

Skokan 3 years ago in Documentation 0

I want to Export a plot to png. The plot has dark background. I change the background for the export to white, but I do not want to show that change. Unfortunately during the export the plot is invalidated automatically and so the plot flashes white for a moment. Is there a way, how to change the background colour for the plot, but not the view itself?

I am developing WPF application and using the Oxyplot.Wpf library.

Disable Pan Gesture Xamarin for Scrolling

Grzegorz Bojarczuk 5 years ago in Documentation updated by Sebastian Przygoda 3 years ago 1

I am trying to disable Pan gesture in Oxy Plot View. I've set IsPanEbabled for both my axes to false. There is no movement of a plot but I cannot scroll also. I also tried to Clear all Gesture recognizers, but it doesn't help. Is there a way to be able to scroll the whole page while panning on the plot?

Full source code of the browser example

Samuel Guedon 6 years ago in Documentation updated 6 years ago 1
How can I get the full source code of each (or a selection) of examples from the browser page (here:

For instance, on the "Candles + Volume (combined volume), adjusting Y-axis" the Y-axis is auto adjusted when panning, but there is not a line of code in the code tab that does it.
Same for example that requires a mouse click, the piece of code that is call when the event is triggered (an also how the event is triggered) is not accessible.

This would massively help me as the examples are quite complete.
