I really appreciate the possibility to have four y-axes using the PositionTier property (two axes on the left and two on the right)
My problem is that the user can not tell to which axis a specific series is bound.
Does anyone have experience how to solve this?
A friend suggested I should have small, colored squares behind the axis titles to indicate the associated series.
But this would require that I custom draw the axis titles? Any idea how to do this?
thanks in advance!

It is possible to subclass the axis and override the rendering, but I see the HorizontalAndVerticalAxisRenderer need some refactoring to make it easier (the RenderAxisTitle method is not overridable).
@everytimer: good suggestion, note also that the color of the axis title can be set to match the series that use the axis

@everytimer: very interesting ideas, I will think about them and do some tests with it...
@objo: so you say it is in principle possible to render the axis myself? Could you give me a hint which classes in which files implement the original rendering?
Maybe an intermediate solution would be to duplicate the code in my derived class. By the way: this is for maximally four vertical axes and currently only for WPF.

Rendermethod. You see the current implementation in Axis.cs
Your derived class will work on all platforms.

For a first try I have derived special implementations from LinearAxis and HorizontalAndVerticalRenderer.
I have overridden the Render methods and call the base classes methods. After that I call my rendering code for colored rectangles that represent the associated series. I had to use Reflection to get at some internal properties of the Axis class though.
This seems to work fine for now!
thanks again for your help!
