OnRender()

Previous page Return to chapter overview Next page

Definition

Used to draw custom content to a Market Analyzer Column, such as a graph.

 
This method is called during the following conditions:

 

The Market Analyzer is scrolled
The user changes the Market Analyzer's properties through the Properties menu
The Market Analyzer first loads (e.g. restoring from a workspace)
The height / width of the Market Analyzer window changes
A user re-sizes the content area by dragging the splitter between the columns

 

Note:  While similar to a Chart Indicator's OnRender() method, the Market Analyzer Column uses WPF Drawing Context class, rather than the SharpDX library used for chart rendering.  Concepts between these two methods are guaranteed to be different.

 

 

Method Return Value

This method does not return a value.

 

Syntax
You must override the method in your Market Analyzer column with the following syntax:

 

protected override void OnRender(DrawingContext dc, System.Windows.Size renderSize)
{
 
}

 

Method Parameters

dc

The drawing context for the column

renderSize

The rendering size for the column

 

 

Tip:  In order to force OnRender() to be called under a specific condition, call the OnPropertyChanged() method which will force the entire column to repaint.  This approach should be used instead of calling OnRender() directly.

 

 

Examples

ns


protected override void OnRender(DrawingContext dc, System.Windows.Size renderSize)
{
  // Rendering logic for our Market Analyzer column
}
