Step Line Chart in .NET MAUI Chart

Step line chart is used to display the data showing changes in values over time by connecting points on plots with a combination of horizontal and vertical lines. And it’s used when it is necessary to highlight the irregularity changes. It appears to be steps.

Step Line Chart

To render the Step line chart, create an instance of the StepLineSeries, and add it to the Series collection property of the SfCartesianChart.

NOTE

The cartesian chart has Series as its default content.

<chart:SfCartesianChart>

    <chart:SfCartesianChart.XAxes>
        <chart:DatetimeAxis/>
    </chart:SfCartesianChart.XAxes>

    <chart:SfCartesianChart.YAxes>
        <chart:NumericalAxis/>
    </chart:SfCartesianChart.YAxes>   

    <chart:StepLineSeries ItemsSource="{Binding Data}"
                          XBindingPath="Date"
                          YBindingPath="Value"/>

    <chart:StepLineSeries ItemsSource="{Binding Data1}"
                          XBindingPath="Date"
                          YBindingPath="Value"/>

</chart:SfCartesianChart>
SfCartesianChart chart = new SfCartesianChart();
DatetimeAxis primaryAxis = new DatetimeAxis();
chart.XAxes.Add(primaryAxis);
NumericalAxis secondaryAxis = new NumericalAxis();
chart.YAxes.Add(secondaryAxis);

StepLineSeries series = new StepLineSeries()
{
    ItemsSource = new ViewModel().Data,
    XBindingPath = "Date",
    YBindingPath = "Value",
};

StepLineSeries series1 = new StepLineSeries()
{
    ItemsSource = new ViewModel().Data1,
    XBindingPath = "Date",
    YBindingPath = "Value",
};

chart.Series.Add(series);
chart.Series.Add(series1);
this.Content = chart;

Dashed Step Line Chart

The StrokeDashArray property of the StepLineSeries is used to render the Step line series with dashes. An odd value is considered as rendering size, and an Even value is considered a gap.

<chart:SfCartesianChart>

    <chart:SfCartesianChart.Resource>
        <DoubleCollection x:Key="DashArray">
            <x:Double>5</x:Double>
            <x:Double>2</x:Double>
        </DoubleCollection>
    </chart:SfCartesianChart.Resource>

    <chart:SfCartesianChart.XAxes>
        <chart:DatetimeAxis/>
    </chart:SfCartesianChart.XAxes>

    <chart:SfCartesianChart.YAxes>
        <chart:NumericalAxis/>
    </chart:SfCartesianChart.YAxes>   

    <chart:StepLineSeries ItemsSource="{Binding Data}"
                          StrokeDashArray="DashArray"
                          XBindingPath="Date"
                          YBindingPath="Value"/>

<chart:SfCartesianChart>
SfCartesianChart chart = new SfCartesianChart();

DatetimeAxis primaryAxis = new DatetimeAxis();
chart.XAxes.Add(primaryAxis);
NumericalAxis secondaryAxis = new NumericalAxis();
chart.YAxes.Add(secondaryAxis);

DoubleCollection doubleCollection = new DoubleCollection();
doubleCollection.Add(5);
doubleCollection.Add(2);

StepLineSeries steplineSeries = new StepLineSeries()
{
    ItemsSource = new ViewModel().Data;
    XBindingPath = "Date";
    YBindingPath = "Value";
    StrokeDashArray = doubleCollection;
}

chart.Series.Add(steplineSeries);
this.Content = chart;

Vertical Step Line Chart

The IsTransposed property of the SfCartesianChart is used to render the Step line series vertically. To enable the Step line series vertically, set the IsTransposed property to true.

<chart:SfCartesianChart IsTransposed="True">

    <chart:SfCartesianChart.XAxes>
        <chart:DatetimeAxis/>
    </chart:SfCartesianChart.XAxes>

    <chart:SfCartesianChart.YAxes>
        <chart:NumericalAxis/>
    </chart:SfCartesianChart.YAxes>   

    <chart:StepLineSeries ItemsSource=""{Binding Data}
                          XBindingPath="Year"
                          YBindingPath="Value"/>

    <chart:StepLineSeries ItemsSource="{Binding Data1}"
                          XBindingPath="Year"
                          YBindingPath="Value"/>

<chart:SfCartesianChart>
SfCartesianChart chart = new SfCartesianChart();

chart.isTransposed = True;

DatetimeAxis primaryAxis = new DatetimeAxis();
chart.XAxes.Add(primaryAxis);
NumericalAxis secondaryAxis = new NumericalAxis();
chart.YAxes.Add(secondaryAxis);

StepLineSeries steplineSeries = new StepLineSeries()
{
    ItemsSource = new ViewModel().Data;
    XBindingPath = "Year";
    YBindingPath = "Value";
};

StepLineSeries steplineSeries1 = new StepLineSeries()
{
    ItemsSource = new ViewModel().Data;
    XBindingPath = "Year";
    YBindingPath = "Value";
};

chart.Series.Add(steplineSeries);
chart.Series.Add(steplineSeries1);
this.Content = chart;
