  I am using the SfChart control but I have problem adding it to a LinearLayout: the size of the SfChart seem wrong.
  Here my code:

      m_oChart = new SfChart (oView.Context);

      //Initializing Primary Axis
      CategoryAxis primaryAxis = new CategoryAxis ();
      primaryAxis.Title.Text = "Month";

      m_oChart.PrimaryAxis = primaryAxis;

      //Initializing Secondary Axis
      NumericalAxis secondaryAxis = new NumericalAxis ();
      secondaryAxis.Title.Text = "Temperature";

      m_oChart.SecondaryAxis = secondaryAxis;


  Seem I am missing something to say chart should "match_parent" control. Of course I don't want the chart to take all the size of my fragment.

  Thanks in advance,

Hi Manuel,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We can achieve your requirement by setting layout parameters for chart with weight using the below code example.
Code Example:


chart.LayoutParameters = new TableLayout.LayoutParams(ViewGroup.LayoutParams.MatchParent, ViewGroup.LayoutParams.MatchParent, 1f);

Note: We have used table layout parameters for chart, since weight property is available only in TableLayout. Please refer the link below.
