How to customize the default shape of any series with the required shapes?

Platform: WPF |
Control: SfChart |
Published Date: February 11, 2015 |

There are various chart type series such as line, column, bubble, area, etc., and each type has its own shape and requirement. This article shows how to customize default shape of any series when the required shape is not available. 



You can define the custom templates for series in chart by using the CustomTemplate property. The DataTemplate that defined in this property renders for each data point. This template gets the corresponding segment as the DataContext. For instance, on defining a template for LineSeries, the LineSegment comes as data context for that DataTemplate.


Note: This CustomTemplate property supports limited series only.





The following screenshot illustrates the custom column segments, here Polygons.
