What am I doing wrong with observable collection?

XAML snippet for Form

    <chart:SfChart x:Name="Chart" HeightRequest="300" WidthRequest="200" >

        <chart:DateTimeAxis IntervalType="Days" >
            <chart:ChartAxisLabelStyle LabelFormat = "MM-dd-yy"></chart:ChartAxisLabelStyle>

        <chart:NumericalAxis Maximum="0" Minimum="5" Interval="0.5">

        <chart:LineSeries ItemsSource ="{Binding Data}" XBindingPath="DateTimeStamp" YBindingPath="Score" Color="Red" />


Code in ViewModel:
        public ObservableCollection<StandardsFeedback> Data 
When I add or delete from this collection the chart does not update. Even if I trigger the OnPropertyChanged

Hi David,

We have done the sample to showcase adding or removing data from ObservableCollection. Please download the sample from following location.

Please get back to us if you are still facing issues in this.

Your sample app works fine. There is only one problem, it does not work with a ViewModel. In the MVVM framework I am using, updates to data are done in the ViewModel and then you notify through the  INotifyPropertyChanged interface. Instead of hooking to a Clicked event I put a Command in that resides in the ViewModel and then update data from there.
In the ViewModel
        public Command FirstTimeCommand { getset; }
        private void FirstTime(object obj)
                Data.Add(new StandardsFeedback(new DateTime(20160107), 4));
in the form
        <Button x:Name="button1" Text="Add" Command="{Binding FirstTime}"/>

Hi David,

We suspect that you are binding to FirstTime() instead of FirstTimeCommand property. We have also modified the sample and attached for your reference.
