  • 5 minutes to read

This example demonstrates how to bind series view models to a chart. Note that you can bind secondary axes and custom labels using the same approach.

To bind series view models to a chart, use the Diagram.SeriesItemsSource property. To configure how the series view model is converted to a series on a chart, use Diagram.SeriesItemTemplate or Diagram.SeriesItemTemplateSelector. In this example, the Template is used to generate identical series.

Public Class GdpSeries
    Public Property CountryName() As String
    Public Property Values() As IEnumerable(Of Gdp)
End Class

Public Class Gdp
    Public Property Year() As Integer
    Public Property Value() As Double
End Class
