Binding values from custom label

Charts for WPF Forum

I want to use the properties from my CustomLabelPoint at the style of the label.

Here is some example code wich doesn´t work because the LabelFunc have to return a string.

Is it possible that the LabelFunc maybe can return an object?

Or ist there another solution?

 public partial class MainWindow : Window
        public MainWindow()

            Chart.IsAxisBaselineVisible = false;
            Chart.IsLegendVisible = false;

            LineSeries.LabelVisibility = LabelVisibility.Visible;
            LineSeries.ItemsSource = new List<CustomLabelPoint> {new CustomLabelPoint(1, 0, "A", "A1"), new CustomLabelPoint(5, 0, "B", "B1")};
            LineSeries.LabelFunc = LabelFunc;

        private string LabelFunc(object o, object o1, object arg3, object arg4, object arg5)
            return ((CustomLabelPoint) arg5).TextA;

    public class CustomLabelPoint
        public double X { get; set; }
        public double Y { get; set; }
        public string TextA { get; set; }
        public string TextB { get; set; }

        public CustomLabelPoint(double x, double y, string text, string text2)
            TextA = text;
            TextB = text2;
            X = x;
            Y = y;


        <Style TargetType="charts:DataPointLabel" x:Key="LabelStyle">
            <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Bold" />
            <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="{Binding SeriesDefaultBrush}"/>
            <Setter Property="Template">
                    <ControlTemplate TargetType="charts:DataPointLabel">
                        <Border Background="White">
                            <ContentPresenter x:Name="PART_ContentPresenter" Margin="{TemplateBinding Padding}">
                                    <DataTemplate DataType="app:CustomLabelPoint">
                                            <TextBlock Width="50" Height="50" Background="Aqua" Text="{Binding <strong>TextA</strong>}"></TextBlock>
                                            <TextBlock Width="50" Height="50" Background="Aqua" Text="{Binding <strong>TextB</strong>}"></TextBlock>

In our product, only string-based labels are supported.  That being said, you can return things like line terminators in the string to make a two-line value.  We do that in our Data Point Labels QuickStart code-behind for the custom label function example in that:

public static string GetCustomLabel(object primaryValue, object secondaryValue, object xValue, object yValue, object originalValue) {
	return string.Format("X: {0}{1}Y: {2}", xValue, Environment.NewLine, yValue);

Thanks for the reply.

Not exactly what I was looking for but it helped me.

I´m now using a value converter to split the string.

The latest build of this product (v22.1.4) was released 25 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
