There is a strange displaying behavior of custom annotation. I added custom annotation using the code below.

let imageView = UIImageView(image: UIImage(named: imageName))
imageView.frame = CGRect(origin: .zero, size: CGSize(width: 10, height: 10))

let customAnnotation = SCICustomAnnotation()
customAnnotation.customView = imageView
customAnnotation.verticalAnchorPoint = .bottom
customAnnotation.horizontalAnchorPoint = .center
customAnnotation.set(x1: xCoordinate)
customAnnotation.set(y1: yCoordinate)
sciChartSurface?.annotations.add(items: customAnnotation)

The result looks good, but when I move surface left and right, custom annotation would go outside of bounds. Like the image I uploaded.

Please help me solve the issue.

I am trying to add a legend to my chart similar to how is done in the LegendChartView.swift code in the sample app. However the legend does not show and I get several NSLayoutConstraints conflicts such as this one:

[LayoutConstraints] Unable to simultaneously satisfy constraints.   Probably at least one of the constraints in the following list is one you don't want.   Try this:       (1) look at each constraint and try to figure out which you don't expect;       (2) find the code that added the unwanted constraint or constraints and fix it.  (
    "<NSLayoutConstraint:0x283528af0 UIButton:0x13c52d840.height == 25   (active)>",
    "<NSLayoutConstraint:0x2835285f0 UIButton:0x13c52d840.bottom == UIView:0x13c545060.bottom - 4   (active)>",
    "<NSLayoutConstraint:0x2835285a0 V:|-(4)-[UIButton:0x13c52d840]   (active, names: '|':UIView:0x13c545060 )>",
    "<NSLayoutConstraint:0x283528b40 'UIIBSystemGenerated' ==   (active)>",
    "<NSLayoutConstraint:0x283528b90 'UIIBSystemGenerated' V:[UIView:0x13c545060]-(0)-|   (active, names: '|':SCIDefaultLegendItem:0x13c543f90 )>",
    "<NSLayoutConstraint:0x283529c20 'UIView-Encapsulated-Layout-Height' SCIDefaultLegendItem:0x13c543f90.height == 0   (active)>" )

Will attempt to recover by breaking constraint  <NSLayoutConstraint:0x283528af0 UIButton:0x13c52d840.height == 25   (active)>

The internal SCIDefaultLegendItems look to keep setting their width and height to 0 which causes conflicts with the underlying UIButton and UILabel components.

Any thoughts on how to get around this? My chart has four series. I have seen the article on drawing the legend outside the chart surface area however I do not want to do that.

Thank you!

I have a question about the font of the label text. When the screen is captured and enlarged, the character has an outline border. Is there a way to get rid of this border? Japanese Kanji font is used.
Thank you.

var yAxisLeft = new SCINumericAxis();
yAxisLeft.AxisTitle = syAxLeft;
yAxisLeft.AxisId = "Primary Y-Axis";
yAxisLeft.AxisAlignment = SCIAxisAlignment.Left;
yAxisLeft.TitleStyle = new SCIFontStyle(14, UIColor.Green);
yAxisLeft.TickLabelStyle = new SCIFontStyle(14, UIColor.Green);
yAxisLeft.DrawMajorBands = false;
yAxisLeft.DrawMinorGridLines = false;

When I add CursorModifier programmatically on long tap I have to remove my finger from screen and press it again In order to CursorModifier become visible

Is it possible to do the following?

1) scroll chart horizontally

2) long tap on screen

3) add CursorModifier programmatically and show it immediately

4) move CursorModifier(finger is still touching the screen)

5) remove finger from screen and remove CursorModifier so I can scroll again

Thank you for reply in advance!

Would it be possible to receive some information on how to take the legend outside of the chart surface area? We are having an issue when the user selects more axis’ to be shown in the chart. The chart then shrinks horizontally making the legend difficult to access for removing the axis’.

A quick how to with some code example would be highly appreciated. To further highlight, this is Xamarin.iOS project we are talking about.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Hello everyone.
We are trying to migrate to V3 in our iOS project and we have many issues.
One of the most important is the implementation of vertically-draggable horizontal lines.
I have a nice working code for SCICharts V2 but I cannot find any similar example of how we can implement a custom modifier for moving an SCIHorizontalLineAnnotation vertically in V3.
We have done it already with the V2 but now that we have to migrate to V3 there is a huge missing part in your documentation.
Our code was using-overiding onPanGesture() in order to figure out if the modifier should handle the touching event, then we were using the touch point in order to find the closer horizontal lines and choose the closest one in order to change the vertical value depending on the touching-changing point.
The only similar example that I found in your documentation ( is using SCIGestureModifier which is not accesible by the V3.
I am trying to use your SCIChartModifierBase class but cannot find anywhere a similar example of what we need.
I already tried to understand how you want us to use the ” override func onEvent(_ args: SCIModifierEventArgs!) ” function of the
SCIChartModifierBase but still no luck, it is impossible to figure out without any kind of a similar example.
The reason of needing an example is that this task needs much more information like these:
1. How to decide if the modifier should handle the touch event and how it should be ignored or handled by the next modifier in the same group ?
2. How to handle the touch started, changed, cancelled events ?
3. How to say in realtime to other modifiers in the same group that we need to to handle the same event simultaneously with this custom modifier ?
4. How to say to the group of modifiers that after the first modifer is taken the touch event then the rest should not use it ?

I will paste here our current implementation that we have done for V2 and needs to be transformed to V3 in case you need more details.

An important part is how we add the modifiers on the chart and this is how we are doing it right now:
let zoom = SCIPinchZoomModifier()
zoom.direction = .xDirection
let group = SCIChartModifierCollection(collection: [CustomModifier(chart: self),
//group.handleGestureFirstOnly = true // Not existing in V3 anymore ! How should we do it in V3 ?
chart.chartModifiers = group

I believe that this code will be really useful for many people out there even for V2 or for migrating to V3.

Swift iOs code using SCICharts V2:

class Modifier: SCIGestureModifier {
private weak var control: ChartView?
private var editingProperty: ChartView.BindableProperty?
private var calculator: SCICoordinateCalculatorProtocol?

    init(chart: ChartView?) {
        self.control = chart

    override func onPanGesture(_ gesture: UIPanGestureRecognizer?, at view: UIView?) -> Bool {

        guard let chart = view as? SCIChartSurface,
            let gesture_ = gesture
            else { return super.onPanGesture(gesture, at: view) }

        let location = gesture_.location(in: chart)
        switch gesture_.state {
        case .began:
            control?.sendActions(for: .touchDown)
            editingProperty = testForDraggableLine(location: location, in: chart)
            calculator = yAxis().getCurrentCoordinateCalculator()
            if editingProperty != nil {
                // Annotations on SciChart don't have Zindex and we want current line to be on the top
                let draggableLines = control?.chart.annotations.array.compactMap { $0 as? DraggableLine }
                if let myLine = draggableLines?.first(where: { $0.bindingKeyValue == editingProperty }) {
                control?.isTouchingLine(isTouching: editingProperty != nil)

                _ = control?.adjustYRange(force: true)
                control?.sendActions(for: .valueChanged)
                return true

        return false

    private func handleDraggingLines(location: CGPoint, in chart: SCIChartSurface) {
        guard let renderSurface = chart.renderSurface,
            let yCalculator = self.calculator,
            let editingProperty = editingProperty else { return }

        let pointInChart = renderSurface.point(inChartFrame: location)
        let valueForYAxis = yCalculator.getDataValue(from: Double(pointInChart.y))
        control?.setValue(Decimal(valueForYAxis), forKey: editingProperty.rawValue)

    // SOS: Filter possible properties that can be returned. We want to always avoid return - and then - dragging the current price bid or ask !
    private func testForDraggableLine(location: CGPoint, in chart: SCIChartSurface) -> ChartView.BindableProperty? {

        let nearItems = chart.annotations.array
            .compactMap { $0 as? DraggableLine }
            .filter { item in

                    item.yDistance(from: location) <= hitTestDistance

We are having an issue which is preventing us from upgrading to a newer version of Xamarin iOS SciChart.

With Xamarin iOS SciChart v3, the UpdateTicks method from SCINumericTickProvider cannot be overridden, because it doesn’t exist (at least not public).

In Xamarin Android SciChart v3, it works with overriding the UpdateTicks method.

In Xamarin iOS SciChart v2, it was possible to customize the ticks by overriding the method GetMajorTicksFromAxis from the class SCINumericTickProvider.

It looks like the types generation from iOS to Xamarin C# has missed to correctly export the UpdateTicks method as public overridable. (Because the docs say it should be there and it is there on Android Xamarin.)

When search this forum, I found that we can achieve it by adding point marker. But I am getting this error when trying to add point marker :
‘Operation: setPointMarker: is not avaliable on type: SCIHorizontallyStackedColumnsCollection’

let me know this feature(round top corners of bars) is availble or not ! Or is there any way to do this ?

If we set ClipMode.None we can pan infinitely to the uncharted space of left and right. this is fine.
But I want to do panning infinitely only to the left side. So I set ‘clipAtMax’. This is stop panning at right. But instead of panning infinity to the left, it is stretching the left part.
Any solution ?

Dear SCICharts support:
We have a very large project that must be migrated to version 3 because right it uses version 2.
I am stuck in the following issues:

1/ I cannot convert Double or Date to ISCIComparable.

Our x axis contains Date-timestamp values and I am trying to find the index of the dataseries.xValues of a specific Date having as parameter my Date value which is Date type and not ISCIComparable.
How can I do this ?

When I try my attempt 1:

let x: Double = <DoubleValue>
let index = dataSeries.xValues.findIndex(of: x, searchMode: .nearest, isSorted: true) 

I am getting the build error: “Cannot convert value of type ‘Date?’ to expected argument type ‘ISCIComparable?'”

When I try my attempt 2:

If I also try to iterate the xValues and find the ISCIComparable value which has doubleValue equal the x then I get the error “Type ‘ISCIList?’ does not conform to protocol ‘Sequence'”
I mean something like this:

let x: Date = Date()
var comparableValue: ISCIComparable? = nil
for val in dataSeries.xValues {
    if val.toDate() == x {
        comparableValue = val

So any solution please ?

2/ I am trying to update the last point of dataSeries using this code:

let lastPoint = dataSeries.count - 1
if let open = dataSeries.openValues.value(at: lastPoint) {
        dataSeries.update( open: open,
                                    high: max(dataSeries.highValues().value(at: lastPoint).toDouble(), mbidPrice),
                                    low: min(dataSeries.lowValues().value(at: lastPoint).toDouble(), mbidPrice),
                                    close: mbidPrice,
                                    at: lastPoint)     }

and I get the error “Cannot convert value of type ‘ISCIComparable’ to expected argument type ‘ISCIValues?’ “
Why ? How should I do this ?

Thanks a lot in advance

I’ve received this crash report for a long time since I use this SDK.
But now it’s the largest amount of crash report in the newest version.
Do you have any idea about this?
I use the SDK to show meter temperature and humidity data. It’s about 10k to 30k data show in the chart and every time the user has download the data or the user zoom, drag the chart will recalculate the min, max, avg number in the visible time range.
Thank you~

After upgraded SciChart to SciChart_iOS_SDK_3.0.0.5074, using rollover modifier on a SciChart surface which was embedded into a scroll view will crash the app. It crashed when user scroll horizontally on a SciChart surface inside a horizontal scrollable scrollview. It is the same with the vertically scrollable scrollview.

I am using SciChart_iOS_SDK_3.0.0.5074 with Swift 5.

I want to show string type on X-axis. I am using below code snippet.

class YearsLabelProvider: SCILabelProviderBase<SCINumericAxis> {

   var xLabels: [String] = ["Test", "Test", "Test", "Test", "Test", "Test", "Test", "Test",     "Test", "Test", "Test", "Test", "Test", "Test"]

   func update(_ axis: ISCIAxisCore!) { }

   override func formatLabel(_ dataValue: ISCIComparable!) -> ISCIString! {
        let index = Int(dataValue.toDouble())
        return NSString(string: index >= 0 && index < xLabels.count ? xLabels[index] : "")

    override func formatCursorLabel(_ dataValue: ISCIComparable!) -> ISCIString! {
        let index = Int(dataValue.toDouble())

        var result: String?

        if (index >= 0 && index < xLabels.count) {
            result = xLabels[index]
        return NSString(string: result!)

Application crashes while loading with the following error –

” *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception ‘Initializer not allowed Exception’, reason: ‘Parameterless initializer of Chart.YearsLabelProvider class shouldn’t be used. Please use one of the designated initializers instead'”

Kindly help us resolving this issue since this is a showstopper issue.
I would also like to know about what data SCIXyDataSeries accepts when we are working with strings.

i want to disable the pan effect when user long press on chart and allow the user to scroll only in the currently visible range to view the rollover tooltip so that user can see the reading in the current visible range. Once the long press is release, then enable the pan effect again.

Currently when user try to see the reading using rollover tooltip, the whole chart is moving. I have tried removing and adding the zoompanmodifier on long press gesture in ios. But it is not working.

Thank you in advance.

I was testing my charts on a simulator and when I naved away and then back to the chart screen the Simulator’s chart was totally black screen; I could move the mouse over the points and the popouts would occur; and your license notice showed in the center of the chart. So it was almost like it thought all the drawing for the chart itself needed to be black on black.

It was always broken on the 2nd or later chart. Restarting the app fixed it. I tried removing all custom settings, and calling the invalidate; and nothing caused it to redraw correctly… Fortunately, when deploying to real devices everything worked correctly. Is this an expected side effect of testing on a simulator, or is their something that I can do to force a hard refresh of the chart…

FYI: The additional debug diagnostics don’t seem to do anything on a simulator, or at least I couldn’t find anywhere it was logged.

I found the example for spline drawing, but it’s still missing the gradient brush that mountain series have, how can I add it? thanks

Originally my chart would
– create the surface
– setup the chart modifiers
– setup the axis
– add the data (SCIFastLineRenderableSeries).

However, it appears that when you .add(new SCIFastLineRenderableSeries) it recreates all the tooltips on each add, and finally on the very last SCIFastLineRenderableSeries that is inserted will get two duplicate tooltips. This happens both with the default tooltips or custom tooltips.

I finally noticed that some of your examples you setup the modifiers at the end after adding the data. So I moved all the chart modifiers into a separate function and called it after the data is setup, and now the proper number of tooltips appears.

This might either need to be noted somewhere prominent in the iOS docs; or even better the order shouldn’t matter.

I didn’t see anything in any docs, so I am just wanting to verify this info…

Is this correct that you have to link in and ship the libSwiftCore (+ other swift libs) with an app using SciCharts on iOS? When I added the chart library to my app; the app crashed at startup with missing dynamic load of libSwiftCore.dylib on a real device (emulators run fine).

Enabling ALWAYS_EMBED_SWIFT_STANDARD_LIBRARIES in the build settings fixed this issue. But this surprised me that the SciChart library would actually require Swift.

Was this intentional; or did the library somehow pickup an unintentional reference somewhere….

I don’t know if this affects any earlier versions; but the version my app is using is the 5098.

I created a surface with the following modifiers:
– SCIZoomPanModifier
– SCIZoomExtentsModifier
– SCIPinchZoomModifier

On the SCIZoomExtentsModifier I have **SCIDirection2D_XyDirection ** (also tried YDirection alone)
And when you double tap on the display; only the X direction resizes back down to the proper size. The Y direction is 100% ignored.

Seems to have to do with using a SCILogarithmicNumericAxis on the Y axis. I have tried commenting out all settings applied to the SCILogarithmicNumericAxis; and no change in the ability to re-zoom back to normal size. If I use a SCINumericAxis instead; the Y zooms back out properly…

Hi SciChart team,

there is a working example that implement a Polar Chart type for iOS?
I was unable to find anything in the documentation. Only for WPF platform.
If not, there is a plan to support this kind of chart in next release of the library?

Thanks for the help.

I’m updating from Xamarin iOS SciChart v2 to v3 and just hit the issue that i can not use a custom TickProvider because there is no overridable UpdateTicks method.

I could not find any TickProvider code in the v3 Examples so the docs are my only source:—tickprovider-and-deltacalculator-api.html

According to the docs, I should override SCINumericTickProvider or SCIDateTickProvider

class CustomNumericTickProvider: SCINumericTickProvider
    public override void UpdateTicks(SCIDoubleValues minorTicks, SCIDoubleValues majorTicks)

But there is no UpdateTicks method to override.
I tried to override the Update() method instead:

public override void Update()


But that is just causing a freeze/crash at runtime.

It’s worth noting that it works well on Android because there is a UpdateTicks method to override.

What should I do?

I’m using Xamarin.iOS and the SciChart.iOS NuGet. When adding a LabelProvider to an axis the iPhoneSimulator with iOS 13.2 crashes without warning or exception back to the phone menu. This issue is not present on Android using the same API usage pattern.

This effect is not just in my own apps but can be replicated by running the latest Examples app on the same simulator. Examples which demonstrate the same behaviour include “Custom Theme”, Stacked Column Side by Side Chart”, “Using Theme Manager”, all of which set the LabelProvider in the source code.

Is this a known bug? Maybe an incompatibility with the latest version of Xamarin.iOS.

I noticed that this issue has been reported before.

This is a deal breaker for us at the moment as formatting axis labels is pretty crucial.

When calling SCIThemeManager.ApplyTheme(Surface, SCIThemeManager.SCIChart_Bright_SparkStyleKey); within a the code-behind running on the iPhoneSimulator running iOS 13.2, the iOS system throws an Objective-C exception with the following details:

Foundation.MonoTouchException: 'Objective-C exception thrown.  Name: NSInternalInconsistencyException Reason: applyThemeProvider: must be implemented in subclass

Although the exact same pattern works without issue on the corresponding Xamarin.Android project and the examples that call this line seem to be OK too, it is not clear from any documentation what this issue could be. Any advice would be appreciated.

I have 2 solutions of xamarin forms using scichart: one of them is the demo from github repo of scichart (, and the other is my own solution using scichart

The problem is when I attach a labelprovider (the same as the github example) to one of my numerical axes, the app automatically closes on the device (both), neither of the two solutions shows an error or exception.

I cannot get SCILinearGradientBrushStyle working on a donut chart. Only radial gradients work

Here is my code sample:

let segment = SCIPieSegment()
segment.fillStyle = SCILinearGradientBrushStyle(colorCodeStart: 0xff007aff, finish: 0x4D007aff, direction: .horizontal)
segment.value = 100.0
segment.title = "Segment"

The segment just renders a flat color

i am Swift Language

i am plotting live ECG Data on SciChart Surface. I have added 9 Graph on Storyboard in a UIScrollView for the Following things
Each of the above has data = [Int]
i had written a custom Class for Plotting Live Data

=>Class Specification
Inherited From UIView in a seperate xib which contains
– A Label For Name of the chart,
– A chart to draw data and a label
– for displaying frame buffer speed

=>Requirement a Single Chart (Chart have no modifier added onit)

Everything Works Fine until the scroll start, On Scrolling The chart stop Plotting Data Until the Scroll stops

Using Following Code to Construct Sync Multiple Graphs

   let _rangeSync = SCIAxisRangeSynchronization()
    let _zoomExtentsModifierSync = SCIMultiSurfaceModifier(modifierType: SCIZoomExtentsModifier.self)
    let _pinchZoomModifierSync = SCIMultiSurfaceModifier(modifierType: SCIPinchZoomModifier.self)
    let _xDragModifierSync = SCIMultiSurfaceModifier(modifierType: SCIXAxisDragModifier.self)
    let _yDragModifierSync = SCIMultiSurfaceModifier(modifierType: SCIYAxisDragModifier.self)
    let _rolloverModifierSync = SCIMultiSurfaceModifier(modifierType: SCIRolloverModifier.self)

func getGraphs() -> [(String,CustomClassThatHoldsData)] {

    let keys = Array(historicChats!.data!.keys)
    var arrayOfTuples = [(String,CustomClassThatHoldsData)]()
    for key in keys {
    arrayOfTuples.append((key, (self.historicChats?.data![key])!))
    return arrayOfTuples

 func drawMultichartWithDefault() {

        for data in arrayOfGraphs {
        let chart = SCIChartSurface(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: self.stkCharts.frame.width-50, height: 200))
        initChart(chart, data.1)


fileprivate func initChart(_ chart: SCIChartSurface, _ data: VitalHistoryData) {
    SCIUpdateSuspender.usingWithSuspendable(chart) {
    let xAxis = SCIDateTimeAxis()
    xAxis.growBy = SCIDoubleRange(min: SCIGeneric(0.1), max: SCIGeneric(0.1))

    let yAxis = SCINumericAxis()
    yAxis.growBy = SCIDoubleRange(min: SCIGeneric(0.1), max: SCIGeneric(0.1))

    let dataSeries = SCIXyDataSeries(xType: .dateTime, yType: .double)
    let dataArray = data.getDataArray()
    for tuple in dataArray {
    dataSeries.appendX(SCIGeneric(tuple.1), y: SCIGeneric((tuple.0)))

    let rSeries = SCIFastLineRenderableSeries()
    rSeries.dataSeries = dataSeries
    rSeries.strokeStyle = SCISolidPenStyle(color:, withThickness: 1.0)

    chart.chartModifiers = SCIChartModifierCollection(childModifiers: [self._xDragModifierSync, self._yDragModifierSync, self._pinchZoomModifierSync, self._zoomExtentsModifierSync, self._rolloverModifierSync])


On 2 graphs it works quite fine but with the more then 2 graphs it starts lagging

I need to do some calculation for data in visible range after zoom. Is there any notification when gesture ends in SCIPinchZoomModifier? If not, then that means I have to build a custom zoom gesture modifier? If so could you show me how pinch zoom is done in SCIPinchZoomModifier so that I don’t need to build everything from scratch? Thanks

Hey all,

is there a way on iOS to export a SciChartSurface to a vector format in order to embed the exported chart into a PDF document? Right now the only thing I can find in the Documentation is exportToUIImage(). If not – any ideas for a workaround until such feature is implemented?

I am using mountain chart to draw some data. First time open the chart screen, the graph plots properly. If we do scroll forward the graph x-axis last label is missing. If we do scroll backward the graph x-axis first label is missing.

How to make chart axis (date axis in my case) to move with scrolling?

Because currently labels staying on it’s positions and just refreshing its values.

let xAxis = SCIDateTimeAxis()
xAxis.axisId = ChartWrapper.SURFACE_MAIN_X_AXIS_ID
xAxis.autoRange = .never
xAxis.visibleRange = sharedXRange = false = false = false = true
xAxis.textFormatting = "HH:mm:ss" = true

Hello there

I’m looking for any solution to work with milliseconds timestamps (like that one 1563448997279), but haven’t found anything yet.

Is it possible to handle them without losing precision?

Solutions like drop milliseconds not working for me.

One more question to developers:
What is the difference in SCIDataType_DateTime and SCIDataType_SwiftDateTime?

In source code i only found this:
@field SCIDataType_DateTime – NSDate

We have a graph surface with some point markers on it and we want to show a custom tooltip every time the user taps on a point marker. So far I’ve used a UITapGestureRecognizer, convert the touchpoint in the chart frame and for each of the renderable series perform a HitTestAtX with a radius (I’ve tried 1, 5 and 30) but it always returns true, even if I tap on an area where there’s a gap in the chart. Here’s some sample code:

SCIHitTestInfo hitTestInfo = renderableSeries.HitTestProvider.HitTestInterpolateModeAtX(touchPoint.X, touchPoint.Y, 30, renderableSeries.CurrentRenderPassData);

if (hitTestInfo.match)
       Console.WriteLine($"Tapped {hitTestInfo.xValue} {hitTestInfo.yValue} with index {hitTestInfo.index} of the series {renderableSeries.DataSeries.SeriesName}");

       var elementSeries = Model.BottomRightLegendList.FirstOrDefault(tup => tup.DataSeries.SeriesName == renderableSeries.DataSeries.SeriesName);

       var element = elementSeries.GraphElement;

       if (element != null)

Why is the “match” property always true, even if there are no Point Markers in the radius?
