This series is visualized on the screen as separate points representing each of the data points. As all scatter series, this one also requires the RadCartesianChart to define two LinearAxis as a vertical and horizontal axis.

Declaratively defined series

You can use the following definition to display a simple ScatterPointSeries

Example 1: Declaring an ScatterPointSeries in XAML

<telerik:RadCartesianChart Palette="Windows8"> 
    <telerik:LinearAxis /> 
            <telerik:ScatterDataPoint XValue="0" YValue="2" /> 
            <telerik:ScatterDataPoint XValue="1" YValue="5" /> 
            <telerik:ScatterDataPoint XValue="2" YValue="3" /> 
            <telerik:ScatterDataPoint XValue="3" YValue="10" /> 
            <telerik:ScatterDataPoint XValue="4" YValue="9" /> 
            <telerik:ScatterDataPoint XValue="5" YValue="7" /> 
            <telerik:ScatterDataPoint XValue="6" YValue="1" />

  • CategoryBinding: A property of type DataPointBinding that gets or sets the property path that determines the category value of the data point.
  • ValueBinding: A property of type DataPointBinding that gets or sets the property path that determines the value of the data point.
  • PointSize: A property of type Size that get or sets the size of the points. This property will be ignored if PointTemplate property is set.

Data Binding

You can use the YValueBinding and XValueBinding properties of the ScatterPointSeries to bind the DataPoints’ properties to the properties from your view models.

Example 2: Defining the view model

public class PlotInfo 
    public double XValue { get; set; } 
    public double YValue { get; set; } 
this.DataContext = new ObservableCollection<PlotInfo> 
    new PlotInfo() { XValue = 0, YValue = 2}, 

Example 3: Specify a ScatterPointSeries in XAML

<telerik:ScatterPointSeries ItemsSource="{Binding}" YValueBinding="YValue" XValueBinding="XValue"/> 

See the Create Data-Bound Chart for more information on data binding in the RadChartView suite.

Styling the Series

You can see how to style the series using different properties in the ScatterPointSeries section of the Customizing CartesianChart Series help article.

Additionally, you can use the Palette property of the chart to change the colors of the ScatterPointSeries on a global scale. You can find more information about this feature in the Palettes section in our help documentation.
