How to simplify the charts appearance?


Recommended Posts


How can I alter the appearance of the complete chart in the correct way. I played a bit with palette but so far not so successful as wanted to.

How can I generate e.g. such a view.

Hello TestTest: 

You can modify the appearance of the chart by using the Palette class. There is a sample project that illustrates how to use custom palettes, and it is usually located in the installation directory at C:Program Files (x86)Chart FX for WPF 8.1Help and SamplesSample ApplicationsWPF. The “Custom Palette” sample show you how to create a new palette and use it as your color scheme. 

Please find attached a simple sample showing how to change the appearance you are looking for. Please note that this sample is only intended for demonstration purposes, as its main objective is to show a very basic implementation of the desired behavior. I am sure it could be improved in many ways according to your needs, but we certainly believe it can be used as a good starting point for achieving this requirement.

I would recommend you start changing the style to one of our simpler styles such as "Basic" or "Simple", e.g.


            chart1.Style = ChartFX.WPF.Motifs.Basic.Style;
To remove the gradient background, change the background property to a solid brush, e.g.
            chart1.Background = Brushes.White;
After that you can configure colors or other properties as desired.
