SciChart iOS Licensing v2.x


SciChart iOS Licensing v2.x

Note: This article refers to SciChart iOS v2 or lower. For SciChart iOS v3, please see the updated SciChart iOS Licensing v3.x page

In order to license SciChart for iOS 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 iOS. Licenses are unique to all SciChart products, so licenses for another products cannot be used for SciChart iOS Charts and vice versa.

Purchased License Keys

If you have purchased SciChart iOS v2, 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

SciChart Licensing Email Example

// Applying the License

The license file contains an XML fragment in the following format applicable to SciChart iOS v2:

  [email protected]
  07/30/2017 00:00:00

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 static setRuntimeLicenseKey() method somewhere, e.g. in AppDelegate.m file or AppDelegate.swift file in your app.
