First, really thanks for your job!!!

The method public static DateTime ToDateTime(double value) in OxyPlot.Axes.DateTimeAxis

produce an ArgumentOutOfRangeException when we zoom out at maximum

you could correct it wih this code
        /// <summary>
        /// Converts a numeric representation of the date (number of days after the time origin) to a DateTime structure.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="value">
        /// The number of days after the time origin.
        /// </param>
        /// <returns>
        /// A date/time structure.
        /// </returns>
        public static DateTime ToDateTime(double value)
            var result = new DateTime();

            if (double.IsNaN(value))
                return result;

            if (CanAddDays(timeOrigin, value-1))
               result= timeOrigin.AddDays(value - 1);
            return result;

        /// <summary>
        /// Determines whether this instance [can add days] the specified dt.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="dt">The dt.</param>
        /// <param name="days">The days.</param>
        /// <returns></returns>
        public static bool CanAddDays(DateTime dt, double days)
            double maxDaysToAdd = (DateTime.MaxValue - dt).TotalDays;
            double minDaysToAdd = (DateTime.MinValue - dt).TotalDays;
            return days <= maxDaysToAdd && days >= minDaysToAdd;
And one more thing : We have to comment the default constructor to use DateTimeAxis in vb.net

Thanks again

Thanks, I never tried to zoom out that far.
I have applied some fixes that seems to help (some code in the CreateDateTickValues should also be modified).

What is the problem with the default constructor, I didn't understand.

we have this error in vb.net

'.ctor' is ambiguous because multiple kinds of members with this name exist in class 'OxyPlot.DateTimeAxis'

so we have to comment the default constructor

I see this has already been explained before... [discussion:394977]
Sorry, I didn't notice. I guess this applies to a lot of series constructors, too?
But I think the parameterless constructors should be chosen.
Changing this will also break a lot of code...

Thanks a lot

you do a really great job!!!

I also use helixtoolkit to display robot trajectory in a 3D environnement!!

Thanks again.

Even with parameterless constructors we can't instance the class

must have to comment like this in OxyPlot.Axes.DateTimeAxis
        //public DateTimeAxis()
        //    this.Position = AxisPosition.Bottom;
        //    this.IntervalType = DateTimeIntervalType.Auto;
        //    this.FirstDayOfWeek = DayOfWeek.Monday;
        //    this.CalendarWeekRule = CalendarWeekRule.FirstFourDayWeek;

Can you show the VB.NET code that fails to compile when you don't comment out the constructor?

cedrelo wrote at 2013-12-11 12:36:

    _dateAxis = New DateTimeAxis()
        With _dateAxis
            .Position = AxisPosition.Bottom
            .IntervalType = DateTimeIntervalType.Seconds
            .MajorGridlineStyle = LineStyle.Solid
            .Key = "AxisDate"
            .IsPanEnabled = False
        End With

Thanks, but I could not reproduce the problem! That VB code compiled without any errors here!

cedrelo wrote at 2013-12-12 07:54:


I use visual studio 2010 maybe it is the reason ?

really strange!


objo wrote at 2013-12-12 20:34:

I added a WPF/VB.NET example created in VS 2013 to Source\Examples\WPF.

sdille wrote at 2013-12-27 19:13:

I don't seem to see an example that shows this works. Simply doing this in Visual Basic will cause compiler errors with the following error message:

Dim xAxis As DateTimeAxis = New DateTimeAxis()

'.ctor' is ambiguous because multiple kinds of members with this name exist in class 'OxyPlot.DateTimeAxis'

Any suggestions? I am unable the use any of the constructors for DateTimeAxis because of this issue

objo wrote at 2014-01-07 21:27:

Sorry, I have no experience with VB, but the VB example in Source\OxyPlot.WPF_VB.sln compiles without any errors here. I can also use
Dim xAxis As DateTimeAxis = New DateTimeAxis()` without getting any compiler errors.

Note that DateTimeAxis is in the OxyPlot.Axes namespace.
