    I need to make a polar chart that is not labeled 0 to360 but 0 to 180 and 0 to -150.  Any ideas on how I might do this?

    I included an image of what I need in case it is not clear.

    Hi Mark,

    The polar chart doesn't support such behavior. In order to achieve the desired result you can use the following approach:
    • Use GenericDataPointBinding<T> for the AngleBinding of the series. In its ValueSelector you can convert the negative values to positive ones in the range between 181 and 359 degrees. For example, -60 should become 300 and -150 should be 210.
    • Use a LabelTemplate and an IValueConverter to display the labels with the negative values. Basically, if the value in the label is bigger then 180, make the calculations and return a negative value. An example:
                  <TextBlock Text="{Binding Converter={StaticResource angleConverter}}" />

      public class AngleConverter : IValueConverter
          public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture)
              var angle = (double)value;     
              return angle > 180 ?  -(360 - angle) : angle;
          public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture)
              throw new NotImplementedException();

    I hope this information is useful.
