Add an Indicator to a Series

This example demonstrates how to build a mass index indicator for a stock series. Associate this indicator with a separate Y axis and place it below the stock series.

  1. Add the MassIndexIndicator 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 MovingAveragePointsCount and SumPointsCount properties to specify the number of points used to calculate the exponential moving average (EMA) and the number of summable values.

Customize Indicator Appearance

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

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