Setting Up an Indicator

The indicator itself is a chart series but with some additional sampling applied over the data before it gets plotted on the chart. The indicators are added in the Indicators collection of RadCartesianChart.

Example 1: Defining TrueRangeIndicator

<telerik:RadCartesianChart.Indicators>
    <telerik:TrueRangeIndicator CategoryBinding="Date" 
                                HighBinding="High"
                                LowBinding="Low"
                                CloseBinding="Close" 
                                ItemsSource="{Binding Data}"/>
</telerik:RadCartesianChart.Indicators>

The indicator is populate using the same approach as shown in the Data Bind to Data-Object article. You can set the corresponding value binding properties - for example, ValueBinding, CategoryBinding, HighBinding, CloseBinding, etc. Additionally, you can apply different options based on the concrete indicator's implementation.

See the Financial and Stock Series/Indicators examples in the demos application for a demonstration of the indicators.
