I want to generate a PDF that has a StackedBarChart. I need to draw some vertical lines at certain positions over the chart (like some milestones).

The only way I found to do this is to create the chart with MigraDoc, then open it with PDFSharp and draw with XGraphics on it.

Is there a easier way to achieve this? The vertical lines should be drawn at specific position, so identifying the coordinates is a bit tricky.

This is my code until now:
var migraDocument = new Document();
//Add the bar chart

//Render the MigraDoc document
DocumentRenderer documentRenderer = new DocumentRenderer(migraDocument);

//Use PdfSharp to draw with XGraphics
PdfDocument pdfDocument = new PdfDocument();
int pageCount = documentRenderer.FormattedDocument.PageCount;

for (int pageNumber = 1; pageNumber <= pageCount; pageNumber++) // Note that page numbers start with 1.
   PdfPage pdfPage = pdfDocument.AddPage();
   XGraphics xGraphics = XGraphics.FromPdfPage(pdfPage);

   //draw some random lines to see it works
   XPen pen = new XPen(XColors.DarkGreen, 6);
   XPoint[] points = new XPoint[] { new XPoint(20, 100), new XPoint(60, 120), new XPoint(90, 20), new XPoint(170, 90), new XPoint(230, 40) };
   xGraphics.DrawLines(pen, points);

   documentRenderer.RenderPage(xGraphics, pageNumber);
