Developers! To help you get started, we have prepared getting-started guides for the four platforms that SciChart has been built on. Please take a look at the resources below. If you have any feedback or suggestions on how to make the getting-started process better, please do contact us!
All the trial downloads for SciChart can be downloaded from our website, at www.scichart.com/downloads. This will require creating an account at scichart.com.
Choose the trial you want (e.g. WPF, iOS, Android or Xamarin) and download it. Run the installer or unzip the file.
Each platform for SciChart contains a rich examples suite which shows you common use-cases of how to use SciChart. We have spent time to create over 250 examples of how to use SciChart across platforms.
The WPF Examples come pre-built, however the iOS, Android and Xamarin examples must be compiled to run on your device.
To build your first Charting App, we recommend following our tutorials to get to know SciChart. Once you’ve done that you should know all you need to know to to include SciChart into your application and to create simple charts.
From there, follow our examples or if you really get stuck, contact support and we will do our best to help.
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.
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!
We want SciChart to be easy to use, and to be fun to work with. If you have a suggestion on how to improve our Getting-Started guide, or a quesiton, please contact us below.
