    I would like to achieve a combination of Bar and Line graph such that both the graphs are plotted using Left axis as their base (X-axis) and the bottom axis as vertical axis (Y-axis). For this I have tried changing the orientation for the Line Chart but I am unable to achieve this. Could you please provide some help preferably the XAML so that both the graphs are plotted using a single axis as their base?

    Thanks in advance

    Regards,

    Raju

    Raju Chowdhury,

    BarSeries puts its Independent Axis on the vertical (so you can have half of what you want), but LineSeries (and ColumnSeries) puts it on the horizontal. You could create a custom version of LineSeries that swapped its orientation, but I don't think there's a way to do what you want out of the box. 🙁

    Alternatively, you could combine LineSeries and ColumnSeries together and display the data you have together pretty easily – though it would not have the orientation you want.

    Hi David,

    Thanks for the response.

    Would it be a good idea if I use the Column and Line Series and further, rotate the chart to get the desired orientation? If so, I am thinking to put the chart control inside a canvas (or any other control you may suggest) and then rotate the canvas.

    Could you kindly provide inputs and few helpful links to achieve the same?

    Raju Chowdhury,

    You could try rotating the entire Chart control – you wouldn't even need to use a Canvas (any container would do – or just apply the RenderTransform directly). But that will spin everything together and you may need to counter-rotate some things (like the Title) or even reposition them in order to get things looking "normal" again.

    For capturing/printing a Chart, I wrote the following post which may be helpful: blogs.msdn.com/…/no-trees-were-harmed-in-the-making-of-this-blog-post-how-to-successfully-print-a-chart-with-the-silverlight-4-beta.aspx

    Hope this helps!
