Hello.

If RadCartesianChart uses an instance of RadObservableColection as DataSource and there are a lot of data points (for example 100000 points of data) in this RadObservableColection, is there (in this case) RadCartesianChart works with virtual (disk) memory (locating RadObservableColection in virtual memory)? Or RadCartesianChart uses only RAM memory space in this case (so RadObservableCollection is in the computer's RAM)?

Hi Yaroslav,

The chart doesn't use anything specific for managing its memory. Only what the .NET and the WPF framework provides. In other words, the data lives in the RAM memory. The same applies for the RadObservableCollection class.

The chart will work with as much space as the application provides to it. Anyway, keep in mind that the WPF applications are .NET and they have memory limit that when you reached an OutOfMemoryException will be thrown by the framework.

Regards,
Martin
