CandleSeries - HiLo shadows / OHLC chart open & close markers

Till now I was only able to get marubozus into the chart, does the SfChart control support the rendering of the upper/lower shadows?
If so, how can this be done? If not, will there be an update?

I also noticed, that the open & close markers on the rendered HiLoOpenCloseSeries are positioned on the wrong side of the line.

Please take a look at the attached screenshots, where I highlighted the mentioned issues.

Update concerning OHLC chart: 
It just seems to be an issue with the default colors. The issue does not occur, when I specifically set the two color properties.

Update concerning CandleSeries:
After setting the CandleSeries.Stroke property to a specific solid brush, I can now see the shadows - is there a way to utilize the Bear- or BullFillColor instead?

Hi Arian,


Thanks for using Syncfusion products.


Query 1: OHLC chart open & close markers


Thanks for the helping us define this issue. We have changed the default color of BearFillColor and BullFillColor property. This fix will be available in our upcoming release.


Query 2: Candle Series


We have analyzed the reported query. We would like to inform you that we have prepared the workaround for your requirement and this can be achieved by applying below code snippet.


Code Snippet [C#]:

    public class CandleSeriesEXT : CandleSeries


        public CandleSeriesEXT()




       public override void CreateSegments()



           for (int i = 0; i < this.DataCount; i++)


               double y1 = OpenValues[i];

               double y2 = CloseValues[i];

               if (y1 < y2)


                   this.Segments[i].Stroke = this.BullFillColor;




                   this.Segments[i].Stroke = this.BearFillColor;






Please find the sample in the following location. Please let us know if you require any further assistance on this.
