Trial License

After downloading and installing SciChart, you will need to start a 30-day trial to create applications and explore the SciChart framework. The trial is a fully featured 30-day trial with no limitation in functionality.

The trial license displays a watermark “Powered by SciChart” but this is not shown in the full licensed version of SciChart.

At the end of your 30-day trial, applications you have built with SciChart will cease to work and you will not be able to keep working on them.

Once you purchase licenses, the license is perpetual with optional renewal to keep up to date (get support and get later builds).
