Where is the documentation?

We have written comprehensive documentation for SciChart WPF, iOS and Android which is hosted online on our website.

Xamarin charts do not have documentation as our Xamarin is simply a wrapper around iOS/Android. However, we have prepared tutorials for Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android as well.

What Happens when my trial expires?

SciChart comes with a 30-day trial, unlimited featured trial. At the end of your trial, you will still be able to compile your application, but the charts will stop working.

At this time, you can purchase a full license to unlock the trial time restrictions. If you have any questions about our licensing model, or pricing, just ask!
