Add an Indicator to a Series

This example demonstrates how to build an average true range indicator for a stock series. Associate this indicator with a separate Y axis and place it below the stock series.

  1. Add the AverageTrueRangeIndicator object to the chart's collection of series (ChartView.Series).
  2. Set the indicator's Data property to a CalculatedSeriesDataAdapter class instance. Use this object's Series property to specify a series for which the indicator should be calculated.
  3. Use the PointsCount property to specify the number of data points used to calculate the indicator.

Customize Indicator Appearance

To change the indicator line appearance, set the AverageTrueRangeIndicator.Style property to the LineIndicatorStyle object with the specified Stroke and StrokeThickness properties.

<dxc:AverageTrueRangeIndicator>
    <dxc:AverageTrueRangeIndicator.Style>
        <dxc:LineIndicatorStyle Stroke="#e95ddc" StrokeThickness="2"/>
    </dxc:AverageTrueRangeIndicator.Style>
