Licensing SciChart Android


Licensing SciChart Android

In order to license SciChart for Android and unlock all its features, there is a simple procedure which must be followed. Without this you won’t be able to compile and debug applications built with SciChart Android. Licenses are unique to all SciChart products, so licenses for another products cannot be used for SciChart Android Charts and vice versa.

// Where is my License?

Trial Keys

If you are trialling SciChart Android then the SciChart Android SDK v1.2.1 1540  now includes a 30-day trial built in. Once this expires, if you need more time, contact us and we can grant you an extended trial license key which you can use by following the steps below.

Purchased License Keys

If you have purchased SciChart Android, you should have received a confirmation e-mail with a license XML and serial key. You can also view purchased license keys and serials in your Profile Page. If you don’t have one, please contact SciChart Sales

// Applying the License

The license file contains an XML fragment in the following format:

<!-- Note! This is just an example. The real License Contract is found by following steps above-->
  <Customer>This is your customer name</Customer>
  <OrderId>This is your order ID</OrderId>
  <SupportExpires>04/06/2017 00:00:00</SupportExpires>
  <KeyCode>a36ce6cc31972cacb787ed7c901a2... 6b2341e0f8bb075c5473b</KeyCode>

The license file contains your company name and order ID, as well as an encrypted key to validate the license. If any of these details are changed, the license will no longer function correctly. Please keep your license file safe as it is unique to your organisation and key-codes contain encrypted information which can be used to identify the customer.

To apply the License, you have to call the setRuntimeLicenseKey(String) method on a SciChartSurface instance, passing in the XML fragment from your License File as a String parameter:
