Progress Telerik UI for WPF

3D Chart

  • Overview

    Telerik WPF 3D Chart control is an addition to the RadChartView set and is the first control in it to visualize data in a three dimensional manner. The chart uses the WPF API for 3D rendering, so you don’t need to worry about including third party libraries.

  • Series Types

    There are three built-in series in the 3D chart—surface series, point series, and bar series (a.k.a. Manhattan chart).

    • Point Series – allows for point size selection
    • Surface series – exposes advanced features such as different color modes and custom triangulation abilities.
    • Bar Series - ability to specify the display direction of the bars
    • Line Series - visualizes three dimensional data represented by a line shape
  • Axes

    The 3D space in the RadCartesianChart3D control is defined by three axes, one for each dimension – X, Y and Z.

    Two axis types that can be used with the 3D chart:

    • Numeric
    • Categorical
  • Camera behavior

    The chart allows you to control the camera position from where the scene is observed. You can rotate the camera around the chart and change its distance, by moving it towards or away from the center. This creates the illusion that the chart is being spun and zoomed in and out.

  • Palettes

    The control supports a variety of color palettes. You can explore all available options in the Demo app of Telerik UI for WPF.
  • Tooltips

    The tooltip behavior shows information about hovered data point visuals.

  • Data Point Customization

    You can control the appearance of the data point visuals. Set custom materials allowing to determine the color, gloss and shine of the 3D elements, as well as other customizations. Additionally, custom geometries can determine the shape of the visuals.
