Let’s get started with SciChart Android!

Quickest of the Quick Start Guides

Ok so you’ve downloaded and unzipped the SciChart Android v3 SDK. Great! Now what?

Check out this Quickest of the QuickStart Guide below which shows you how to start a trial, run the Examples Suite, work through the tutorials and see what SciChart can do.

1. Starting a SciChart Android Trial

In previous versions of SciChart Android, you could download the AARs from Maven or our website and it would ‘just work’ for 30 days. With the release of SciChart Android v3 we have introduced a new cross-platform licensing mechanism which is common to all our platforms.

1. Donwload the Licensing Wizard

To get started, download and install the SciChart Cross Platform Licensing Wizard to your Windows or Mac Desktop.

2. Log in

Next Log in using your SciChart.com username and password (Create one).

Start a 30-day SciChart Android Trial with the Cross Platform Licensing Wizard
3. Start a Trial

Click ‘Start Trial’ on the Trials page for Android.

4. Apply a trial Key

Apply the trial to your application by viewing the KeyCode on the Licensing Wizard.

The KeyCode must be set in your app once, and once only before any SciChartSurface instance is shown. Do this by calling the static SciChartSurface.SetRuntimeLicenseKey() method in MainActivity or Application.onCreate.

Code samples below:

public class YourApp extends Application {

    @Override
    public void onCreate() {
        super.onCreate();
        sInstance = this;

        // Set your license code here to license the SciChart Android Examples app
        // You can get a trial license key from https://www.scichart.com/licensing-scichart-android/
        // Purchased license keys can be viewed at https://www.scichart.com/profile
        //

        try {
            com.scichart.charting.visuals.SciChartSurface.setRuntimeLicenseKey("YOUR_KEYCODE");
        } catch (Exception e) {
            Log.e("SciChart", "Error when setting the license", e);
        }
    }
}
// The main activity for the application
class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {

    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)

        // Set your license code here to license the SciChart Android Examples app
        // You can get a trial license key from https://www.scichart.com/licensing-scichart-android/
        // Purchased license keys can be viewed at https://www.scichart.com/profile
        //

        try {
            com.scichart.charting.visuals.SciChartSurface.setRuntimeLicenseKey("YOUR_KEYCODE")
        } catch (e: Exception) {
            Log.e("SciChart", "Error when setting the license", e)
        }
    }
}
public class MainActivity : ListActivity
{
    protected override void OnCreate(Bundle bundle)
    {
        base.OnCreate(bundle);
    SciChart.Charting.Visuals.SciChartSurface.SetRuntimeLicenseKey(@"YOUR_KEYCODE");
 
           // .. 
    }
}

Take a moment to start a trial now, so that you can get working as soon as possible.

Note, if you have purchased a paid license, then head over to Licensing SciChart Android to learn how to activate and use it.

During your trial of SciChart Android we will gladly answer your technical questions about the chart. After the trial expires, you may purchase a support subscription to maintain access to technical support & to continue developing with SciChart.

Thanks, and enjoy!
