Building the SciChart Android Examples Suite

The SciChart Android Examples Suite is shipped as source code with the SciChart Android SDK ZIP in the Examples folder. To run the SciChart Android Examples, you simply need to open this folder in Android Studio and compile it. See Setting up an Android Development Environment if you haven't already.

 

To do this, first start Android Studio. In the main menu go to File -> Open and select the folder where you unzipped the SciChart Android SDK. Select Examples in that folder and click OK.

Android Studio will immediately start building the Scichart Android Examples application, you will see this at the bottom where it says 'Gradle Build Running'. To run the SciChart Android Examples, you simply need to click the RUN button on the top menu bar.

 

If you have a device connected via USB, select that as a deployment target. Or, you can select an emulator if you have one installed.
