HeatMapSeries Axis Problems [Solved]

Hello !


I am currently trying to create a STFT Plot with HeatMapSeries, but i encountered a problem with setting the axis right..

Image
As you can see both axis have the same size and i dont know why.. My time-Axis(x-Axis) should be much smaller. The strange thing is, when I plot the HeatMap with flipped Axis( time- axis = y- axis, frequency axis -> x-axis ), than the plot is correctly drawn.

Here the interesting parts of the code:
 double x0 = 0;
 double x1 = currentTime; 
 double y0 = 0;
 double y1 =  maxFrequency;
 peaksData = .magnitudedata; // double[currenTime.Length, maxFrequency.Length]
heatMap = new HeatMapSeries { X0 = x0, X1 = x1, Y0 = y0, Y1 = y1, Data = peaksData };
            
            temp.Series.Add(heatMap);            
            var cs = new ContourSeries
            {
                Color = OxyColors.Black,
                FontSize = 0,
                ContourLevelStep = 1,
                LabelBackground = null,
                ColumnCoordinates =timeValues, //array with length = currenTime(rounded)
                RowCoordinates= frequenyValues,//array with length = maxFrequency
                Data = peaksData
            };
The same happens for the HeatMapSeries Example when I change the values to,
            double x0 = 3;
            double x1 = 4;
            double y0 = 5;
            double y1 = 8;
then i will get a lot of white space in the Plot..



Thanks in advance for your help.

There is a bug in HeatMapseries:
    /// <summary>
    /// Updates the max/minimum values.
    /// </summary>
    protected internal override void UpdateMaxMin()
    {
        [...]

        this.XAxis.Include(this.MinX);
        this.XAxis.Include(this.MaxX);
        this.YAxis.Include(this.MinY);     //this.XAxis.Include(this.MinY);
        this.YAxis.Include(this.MaxY);    //this.XAxis.Include(this.MaxY);
       [...]
    }

Thanks for the bug report and solution! I have submitted the change.

I had some issues and liked to share after I solved them.
I had many challenges to set the contours, contour labels and colorAxis position (Needed to add a transparent axis to push the ColorAxis further for plotArea)
By the way this is great tool. Much better than some marketed tools "like Infragistics for example).
Good job guys.
