Antialiasing or No Antialiasing
Posted by Admin - on 06 February 2019 03:05 PM

All RenderableSeries types allow turning on/off of Antialiasing individually. This is useful when you wish to have a Candlestick Series with very sharp wicks, but lines must have antialiased smooth edges.

To turn Antialiasing on or off, simply set the AntiAliasing property on a RenderableSeries.

Turn AntiAliasing Off in Code

var rSeries = new FastLineRenderableSeries { AntiAliasing = false };

Turn AntiAliasing Off in XAML

    <s:FastLineRenderableSeries x:Name="lineSeries" AntiAliasing="False"/>

Comparison between an AntiAliased chart image and not AntiAliased is provided below:

SciChart renders faster with AntiAliasing off and this is a good performance enhancement when drawing large datasets.
