    We are implementing a patient history where we want to plot some medical data values with a bar series (vertical) and line series, medication with bars (horizontal) and interventions (e.g. operations) with vertical lines that have a symbol. I made an annotated drawing (attached) so the use case is clear.

    The vertical bar and line graphs are easily done with the RadCartesianChart. However, what I'm missing is a chart, that can display the treatments (Placebo Forte et al.) and the treatments (syringe and scalpel). It's important for them to align with the chart, since they share the same timeline.

    What would you suggest for this use case?


    Thanks in advance and best regards,

    Hello luetm,

    I can suggest you couple approaches to achieve the desired effect. 
    • You can use the charts annotations to draw the treatments.
    • Or you can place a Canvas element over the chart and draw the treatments using native WPF elements. You can position them using the chart's Conversion API.
    You can find both approaches in the attached project. Please give it a try and let me know if it works for you.

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items
