SeriesEventMarker Label display problem

Post by Greg9504 » Fri May 09, 2014 4:10 pm


I'm using FreeformPointLineSeries with SeriesEventMarker's. The SeriesEventMarker's are displayed instead of the actual series points so I can control the size/colour of each point. When I display the label associated with a serieseventmarker the label seems to be clipped by any event markers belonging to a series other than the series related to the event marker. Is there any way around this?
I'm using version 5.5 build 2014.2.21.4001.

Single series label displays OK:

Multiple series label obscured by other series event marker:

Hi Greg,

SeriesEventMarkers are rendered just after the series it belongs to. So the next series or their markers obscure the previous series and their markers. The rendering order is further discussed here: ... order#p860

These two ways come to my mind now:
- use Annotations to show the labels. They are rendered after all series.
- sort the ViewXY.FreeformPointLineSeries list so the series with the markers's label renders last.
