Hi everyone!

I have a candlestick chart that uses SCIZoomPanModifier() so i can zoom and pan in the chart. I added a SCITooltipModifier() so i can inspect the individual data points. I noticed that by adding the toolTipModifier, that my pan and zoom stops working. I can’t figure out why. Would really appreciate if someone could tell me why or if i am missing some variable i need to set

Hi guys,

I just started using SCICHART. I am working my way through the provided tutorials and i noticed that when i add a SCITooltipModifier to the chart, all my other modifiers (zoom and pan and pinchzoom) stopped working. Is this normal? Because i want my chart to have zoom functions and show what datapoints are touched by a user.

Thanks in advance!

Hi all,
I am using the iOS SciCharts version to implement a heatmap series in my application. I am testing out the heatmap by providing a test series of random 100 zValues that range from 1-200. The Heatmap with the stops below just appears blue (see image). My suspicion is that either I am not updating the zValues correctly or the andStops is too low. Can anyone provide insights on what could be the issue?

//Test zValues
let SpectTestArray: [Double] = [ 12,  14, 68, 137, 164, 124, 124, 122, 162, 128, 45, 129,  40,  91,  53, 159,  77,  59,   0,  91, 92,  73,  77,  67, 163,  69, 149, 115,  17,  85, 119, 129, 186,  93,  80,  34, 159, 115,  65, 181, 159,  67, 152,  29,   6, 162,  51, 196, 186, 122, 114, 171, 159, 116,  20, 102,   4, 174, 144, 160, 89,  51,  89, 130, 172, 186,  40, 174,  20, 120, 88, 151, 127, 167,  10,  49, 198,  67, 184, 197, 152, 193, 196, 163,  18,  77,  17, 143, 124, 115, 1, 115, 126,  22,  35,   6,  58, 121,  77,   5]

SplineLineRenderableSeries doesn’t render curved graph line properly in Swift , it renders stepped line for the data series .For reference please check the Screenshot attached ,ECG line(Green) rendered as stepped line (Marked by rectangle). Let me know anything I need to update in my code

Please find below the code for initialisation go the graph and updating the graph same. I am updating graph realtime with same DataSeries.

  1. Graph initialisation code

    func init_ECG_Chart()
    //Remove Theme From Chart By Apply & Remove & Change Border color
    SCIThemeManager.applyTheme(to: self.ecg_Chart_Surface, withThemeKey: SCIChart_Bright_SparkStyleKey)
    SCIThemeManager.removeTheme(byThemeKey: SCIChart_Bright_SparkStyleKey)

    self.ecg_Chart_Surface.isOpaque = false
    self.ecg_Chart_Surface.backgroundColor = .clear
    self.ecg_Chart_Surface.renderableSeriesAreaBorderStyle = SCISolidPenStyle(color: .clear, thickness: 0)
    let lineSeries = SCISplineLineRenderableSeries()
    lineSeries.strokeStyle = SCISolidPenStyle(color: ecgSelectedColor, thickness: 2.0)
    lineSeries.dataSeries = ecgLineDataSeries

    // lineSeries.resamplingMode = SCIResamplingMode_None //Resampling off
    // lineSeries.resamplingMode = SCIResamplingMode_Auto //Resampling off

    let xAxis = SCINumericAxis()
    xAxis.axisAlignment = .bottom
    xAxis.drawLabels = false
    xAxis.drawMajorGridLines = false
    xAxis.drawMinorGridLines = false
    xAxis.drawMajorTicks = false
    xAxis.drawMinorTicks = false
    let yAxis = SCINumericAxis()
    yAxis.axisAlignment = .left
    yAxis.drawLabels = false
    yAxis.drawMajorGridLines = false
    yAxis.drawMinorGridLines = false
    yAxis.drawMajorTicks = false
    yAxis.drawMinorTicks = false
    yAxis.autoRange = .never   //Stop auto ranging axis
    yAxis.visibleRange = SCIDoubleRange(min: -32, max: 96)

    // yAxis.visibleRangeLimit = SCIDoubleRange(min: -32, max: 96)

    yAxis.growBy = SCIDoubleRange(min: 0.2, max: 0.2)
    SCIUpdateSuspender.usingWith(self.ecg_Chart_Surface) {
        self.ecg_Chart_Surface.xAxes.add(items: xAxis)
        self.ecg_Chart_Surface.yAxes.add(items: yAxis)
        self.ecg_Chart_Surface.renderableSeries.add(items: lineSeries)
        //self.ecg_Chart_Surface.chartModifiers.add(items: SCIZoomExtentsModifier(),SCIPinchZoomModifier())

    } //Init ECG

  2. Graph updation code

    func update_ECG_Chart(xValues:SCIDoubleValues,yValues:SCIDoubleValues)

    SCIUpdateSuspender.usingWith(self.ecg_Chart_Surface) {
        self.ecgLineDataSeries.append(x: xValues, y: yValues)
      //  self.ecg_Chart_Surface.zoomExtents()

    } //Update ECG

We’re using Xamarin.Forms. We were using iOS build 5019 and Android build 4441 and we had a custom DatelabelProvider set on our X axis in both platforms which worked fine.

However after updating to latest builds (5022 and 4459), the provider’s FormatLabel (FormatLabelFormatted on Android) isn’t being called and the default label formatting is applied.

I have a question about an apparent regression/change from v2 to v4.

My chart uses an SCIHorizontallyStackedColumnsCollection with three SCIStackedColumnRenderableSeries instances. One of those is assigned to the right-hand Y axis, and the other two are assigned to the left-hand Y axis. Left and right Y axes have very different ranges.

In v2, each series in the group honored its assigned axis. In v4, each series is using the scale of the left-hand Y axis. This happens regardless of the order I add the renderable series to the columns collection.

In the example below, the magenta, blue, and yellow bars have a range of -2 to 2, and are assigned to the left-hand axis. The green bars have a range of 0 to 30 and are assigned to the right-hand axis. I expect all 4 bars to be displayed using the full vertical range of the chart, but instead everything is using the left-hand axis, and the non-green bars have very little displacement.

This is a change in behavior from v2 to v4. Is it intentional? Is there an easy workaround?

I tried to hack around it by having two different SCIStackedColumnRenderableSeries instances, one with 3 placeholder series/1 real series (RH axis) and the other with 1 placeholder/3 real series (LH axis). That doesn’t help. If there are two different column collections on the chart, they both use the left-hand axis, regardless of the order that they are added.

Minimal repro case is attached. But the crux is at the end. If I comment out the .add(rightStacks) call, I get desired behavior for the stack assigned to the left axis. If I comment out the .add(leftStacks), I get desired behavior for the stack assigned to the right axis. What I want is the chart I’d get by overlaying the second and third screenshots, but with the 0 point of left and right Y axis aligned.

    let rightStacks = SCIHorizontallyStackedColumnsCollection()

    let leftStacks = SCIHorizontallyStackedColumnsCollection()


I think I’ve found the cause.

If I manually set (at line 46) yAxisLeft.axisId = “yAxisMyLeft”, then when I render, I get this in the console log:

2021-03-10 16:02:07.993233-0800 SciChart POC[86749:4815412] [WARNING] – [Render Warnings] Could not draw a renderable series of type SCIHorizontallyStackedColumnsCollection. YAxis with Id == DefaultAxisId doesn’t exist. Please ensure that the YAxisId property is set to a valid value.

2021-03-10 16:02:08.509648-0800 SciChart POC[86749:4815412] [WARNING] – [Render Warnings] Could not draw a renderable series of type SCIHorizontallyStackedColumnsCollection. YAxis with Id == DefaultAxisId doesn’t exist. Please ensure that the YAxisId property is set to a valid value.

I conclude from this behavior that SCIHorizontallyStackedColumnsCollection is hardwired to the default axis internally, regardless of the settings of the collection members.

After seeing some strange behavior in my application, I have a simple repro case where hiding a renderable series that’s in a vertically stacked columns collection causes the entire screen to go black. I’ll attach a full viewDidLoad() below, but here’s the basic setup:

    let rsLeftSingle = SCIStackedColumnRenderableSeries()
    rsLeftSingle.dataSeries = dataSeriesLeftSingle
    rsLeftSingle.yAxisId = yAxisLeft.axisId
    rsLeftSingle.fillBrushStyle = SCISolidBrushStyle(color: UIColor.yellow)
    rsLeftSingle.strokeStyle = SCISolidPenStyle(color: UIColor.yellow, thickness: 2.0)

    let rsLeftDouble = SCIStackedColumnRenderableSeries()
    rsLeftDouble.dataSeries = dataSeriesLeftDouble
    rsLeftDouble.yAxisId = yAxisLeft.axisId
    rsLeftDouble.fillBrushStyle = SCISolidBrushStyle(color:
    rsLeftDouble.strokeStyle = SCISolidPenStyle(color:, thickness: 2.0)

    let stacks = SCIVerticallyStackedColumnsCollection()

    let legendModifier = SCILegendModifier()

That code displays a stack of yellow and blue bars, with a legend and checkboxes (both checkboxes selected). When I tap a checkbox to deselect it, the SCIChartSurface() goes blank, the legend remains on screen, and I see this message in the console:

Exception raised with reason: All stacked series in on collection should have the same amount of X Values

When I reselect that checkbox, I get my plot back.

There are no changes being made to the underlying data. Hiding/showing works correctly for horizontally stacked collection and for other renderable series types.

What’s your recommended workaround?

What’s the new (Swift) signature for V2’s updateDataContext(withContext label: SCIDefaultTickLabel!, data dataValue: SCIGenericType, style: SCITextFormattingStyle!) -> SCITickLabelProtocol!? Obviously the SciGenericType is different.

My searches aren’t pulling up anything except hits on the V2 documentation, and all of those now 404.

I’m using that call to put gesture recognizers on some tick labels. I want those gesture recognizers to be different than the one I’m putting on the entire chart. And I need to update the locations every time theX axis changes. An alternate way to achieve this would also be welcome.

In Scichart 2, we had some code that added some annotations in the SCIAnimation completion block. Here’s a snippet. We need the self.renderAnnotations() to happen AFTER the chart data range is set, because we only draw annotations that will fit within the individual bar stack elements.

        SCIUpdateSuspender.usingWithSuspendable(sciChartSurface) {
            if hasBarData {  
                let animation = SCIWaveRenderableSeriesAnimation(duration: 1, curveAnimation: .easeOut)
                animation.completionHandler = {
                    self.configurationButtons?.forEach { $0.isUserInteractionEnabled = true }

Here’s the current rewrite to run under Scichart 4. With this code, yAxisLeft.visibleRange has not been updated to the correct data range when renderAnnotations() is called.

Uncommenting the 3 animator-related lines near the bottom doesn’t make a difference, and my listener function is never called.

I’ve also tried wrapping the renderAnnotations() call in a DispatchQueue.main.asyncAfter() call. That sometimes works, and sometimes results in renderAnnotations() not being called at all.

How do I get renderAnnotations() (and the following line looping on configurationButtons) to run, reliably, after the axis range setup is complete?

How do I get my wave animation back?

        SCIUpdateSuspender.usingWith(sciChartSurface) {
            if hasBarData { 
                self.configurationButtons?.forEach { $0.isUserInteractionEnabled = true }
//                let animator = SCIAnimations.createWaveAnimator(for: columnCollection)
//                animator.add(self)
//                animator.start()

Good day guys. I have download SciChart_iOS_SDK_4.2.0.5533 on Macbook M1. And try to integrate ios-arm64_armv7 verions to my project. I have added SciChart.xcframework to frameworks in Xcode 12.4. But the build is failed with a few errors:

  1. unable to load standard library for target arm-64-apple-ios9.0
  2. Failed to build module ‘SciChart’ from its module interface, it may have been damaged or it may have triggered a bug in Swift compiler when it was produced.

Hi , many of the charts provide a way to set the date on the x axis for the data series and that makes the axis match the DataSeries value defined for that axis, but for heatmap dataseries when you define xType as date the xAxis of type date is not displaying on surface, I don’t know what I’m doing wrong and there is no sample for dates on GitHub , the samples only use int , would be great if you can provide a date sample for the heatmap , thanks

Hi there,

I’m trying to display little icons as axis labels using the LabelProvider API and NSAttributedString (with NSTextAttachmet). Is this supported? Here’s a minimal example:

import UIKit
import Foundation
import SciChart
import SciChart.Protected.SCILabelProviderBase

class ViewController: UIViewController {

    private lazy var chart: SCIChartSurface = {
        let c = SCIChartSurface(frame: .zero)
        c.xAxes.add(items: SCINumericAxis())

        let yAxis = SCINumericAxis()
        yAxis.labelProvider = SymbolLabelProvider()
        c.yAxes.add(items: yAxis)
        return c

    override func viewDidLoad() {


        chart.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
        let guide = self.view.safeAreaLayoutGuide
            chart.leadingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: guide.leadingAnchor),
            chart.trailingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: guide.trailingAnchor),
            chart.topAnchor.constraint(equalTo: guide.topAnchor),
            chart.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: guide.bottomAnchor),

class SymbolLabelProvider: SCILabelProviderBase<SCINumericAxis> {

    lazy var numberFormatter: NumberFormatter = {
        let f = NumberFormatter()
        f.allowsFloats = true
        f.maximumFractionDigits = 2
        return f

    init() {
        super.init(axisType: ISCINumericAxis.self)

    override func formatLabel(_ dataValue: ISCIComparable!) -> ISCIString! {

        let intValue = Int(dataValue.toDouble())
        let font = UIFont.init(descriptor: axis.tickLabelStyle.fontDescriptor, size: UIFont.systemFontSize * 4)

        if intValue.isMultiple(of: 2) {
            let i = UIImage(systemName: "circle", withConfiguration: UIImage.SymbolConfiguration(font: font))
            return NSAttributedString(attachment: NSTextAttachment(image: i!))
        } else {
            let attributes: [NSAttributedString.Key: Any] = [
                .font: font,
                .foregroundColor: UIColor.yellow,
            return NSAttributedString(string: numberFormatter.string(for: dataValue.toDouble())!, attributes: attributes)

See attached screenshot for the result.

If this is not supported: any suggestions / ideas for a workaround?

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)
            return editingProperty != nil
        case .changed:
            if editingProperty != nil {
                handleDraggingLines(location: location, in: chart)

Hi guys,

I want to show x value on chart bar itself as shown in the attached image along with this query. I tried using annotation where I need to give x and y value each time and it look not appropriate in the 2 data series column chart using, instead of that I need easy way to represent label of bar value on graph bar.

please suggest if any.

Thanks in advance.

Hey everyone, my team currently has Scicharts for WPF set up and functioning the way we want it too.

We are moving to Xamarin and have tested Scicharts in a Xamarin.Forms project working for Android/iOS and Windows WPF.
The next step was to install Visual Studios for Mac, and setup a new Xamarin.Forms project and pull the code from the windows version of our Xamarin.Forms project. For windows we use a custom renderer to get the scicharts to work for all platforms available on the windows version. For Mac, we are trying to get a custom renderer set up to load the swift version of the Scicharts for Mac. It’s not going so well.

Can anyone provide details on if it’s possible to get a xaramarin.forms project to load the scicharts for mac framework?


NOTE** I picked iOS because for some reason MacOS wasn’t in the list of platforms

Hi guys,

I have some troubles with piecharts in swift. I want to provide custom labels outside of the piecharts segments. I found a screenshot of a nested piechart attached to an issue in your issue tracker. Thats what I want to do in swift, but I couldn’t find out a way to do so. Could you please provide an example code?

Thanks a lot in advance!

I’m updating some code that was written against SciChart iOS v2. We have one graph in that code that relied on removeFromLegend in a renderable series, to prevent the legend from getting ridiculous long.

As an example, suppose we have Western Earth, Western Wind, Western Fire, Eastern Earth, Eastern Wind, and Eastern Fire. Each element is styled the same, no matter where it’s located. In the legend, we only want to see Earth, Wind, and Fire. Our actual list of series is much longer…4 “elements”, up to 8 locations, making 32 legend entries, with 28 duplicates.

What’s the replacement for removeFromLegend? How do I prevent these duplications?

I was trying to test SciChart on simulator, but I have a problem: I added chart surface on my view, and after I launch an app, SciChart is showing me this text on the screen :
“Hardware rendering performance of SciChart in simulator is SLOW. Please use an actual device to feel the real-world performance”
How do I remove this text and test my charts on the simulator?

I had recently integrated SciChart into my app, and faced some problems with chat appearance on trial mode which are described here:
Due to this problems I tried to run my app on an actual device, and got this build error from Xcode:

ld: building for iOS, but linking in dylib file (/Users/ruslansabirov/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/exinity-aupulhpegzsnlfcrnqfiwnvnljpj/Build/Products/Debug-iphoneos/SciChart.framework/SciChart) built for iOS Simulator, file ‘/Users/ruslansabirov/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/exinity-aupulhpegzsnlfcrnqfiwnvnljpj/Build/Products/Debug-iphoneos/SciChart.framework/SciChart’ for architecture arm64

How can I fix this problem?

I’d like to update the iOS version to the latest stable one (4.1.0), but after following the steps here:
Xcode keeps complaining:

framework not found SciChart.xcframework
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1

If I downgrade back to 3.1.1 everything works again. Any idea why the version 4.1.0 is not working? I’m using Pods to manage all dependencies.

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.

Hello, I’m having an issue when I put multiple surfaces in an iOS view. Only the one made first is shown and there is a black space in place of the other. I swapped the order of creation and now the other is visible instead. Does anyone know why this is happening or have suggestions for putting multiple surfaces in an iOS view? Thanks

While moving the rollover cursor, if the number of series under the cursor increases, the rollover cursor labels become wrongly positioned. This ViewController subclass Swift example reproduces the problem.

import UIKit
import SciChart

class ViewController: UIViewController {
    // Surface is added in Storyboard
    @IBOutlet weak var surface: SCIChartSurface!
    override func viewDidLoad() {

        let xAxis = SCINumericAxis()
        let yAxis = SCINumericAxis()
        xAxis.visibleRange = SCIDoubleRange(min: 0, max: 260)
        yAxis.visibleRange = SCIDoubleRange(min: -5, max:12)
        yAxis.autoRange = .never

        self.surface.chartModifiers.add(items: SCIRolloverModifier())
            renderableSeries( 10...50, 10, .red),
            renderableSeries(150...250, 8, .green),
            renderableSeries( 10...100, 2, .cyan),
            renderableSeries(200...250, 0, .orange),
            renderableSeries( 10...250, 5, .white)
    func renderableSeries(_ xValues:ClosedRange<Int>, _ yValue:Double, _ color:UIColor) -> SCIFastLineRenderableSeries {
        let series = SCIXyDataSeries(xType: .double, yType: .double)
        xValues.forEach { series.append(x: $0, y: yValue ) }
        let rSeries = SCIFastLineRenderableSeries()
        rSeries.dataSeries = series
        rSeries.strokeStyle = SCISolidPenStyle(color: color, thickness: 4)
        return rSeries

When I create a SCIChartSurface programmatically, following the Quick Start guide:

Functionally everything works as expected, but I see a series of these messages in the log:

   [CAMetalLayer nextDrawable] returning nil because allocation failed.

I do not see these messages when the SCIChartSurface is instantiated via a storyboard.

I’m trying to convert Java code to swift and I need the RolloverModifier class’s updateCurrentPoint method. I create CustomRolloverModifier class inherits from SCIRolloverModifier class and import SciChart.Protected.SCIRolloverModifier extension too. But i can’t find updateCurrentPoint method. What is the updateCurrentPoint equivalent method on swift?

SciChart running on iOS 13.6

Please see this short video which demonstrates the issue:

I have a chart showing a single Spline data series. The data series never drops below zero, yet the chart shows multiple points where the line drops below zero as you zoom in and out. This behavior changes as the zoom level changes.

Is this expected behavior for the spline chart? Is there a way to change the behavior so the chart does not show these sub-zero points?

I need to display realtime chart with 20 series of data. My data is arriving at 500Hz. When I’m displaying this data, I find that after a while SciChart hangs with what appears to be a deadlock.

I’ve read as much as I can find about realtime graphing with SciChart and I started with tutorial 4 – Adding Realtime Updates. This article ( suggests that SciChart is thread safe so I tried using a second thread to feed data into a graph. My only change was to move from the main thread timer in the example to a GCD timer running at 500Hz. With this, I’m easily able to reproduce the deadlock in around 1.5 seconds.

Here is the main thread which is attempting to render:

Currently we have two graph surfaces with two Y axes on each side and we need all of the Y axes to have fixed width size. Until now we were achieving that like this:
topGraphSurface.LeftAxisAreaForcedSize = 45;
topGraphSurface.RightAxisAreaForcedSize = 45;
bottomGraphSurface.LeftAxisAreaForcedSize = 45;
bottomGraphSurface.RightAxisAreaForcedSize = 45;

but since updating to the new SciChart v3 we get the error “SciChartSurface does not contain a definition for (Left)AxisAreaForcedSize”. I couldn’t find any information about this in the Migration guide, so is there a way to achieve this in the new version?

I’m tested on iPhone 8 (iOS 13.5.1) and iPad (iPadOS 13.5.1). On iPad the graph always works great but on iPhone sooner or later it always fails.

The exception is always “Thread 1: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (code=1, address=0x11d927ffc)” in the application main:

int main(int argc, char * argv[]) {
@autoreleasepool {

0x103b530ec <+12>: ret

The truth is, I have no idea what’s going on. .. Please, anyone know what might be happening?

xAxis.visibleRange = SCIDateRange(dateMin: 2019-07-29 11:30:00, max:2019-07-29 11:30:00)

As I have a requirement to change the application Language to THI.
How can I set the locale to the axis, so the label visible on the axis should displayed in THI language.

As right now it is always visible in english irrespective of the language like 1 sep, 20 sep, 10 oct, 30 oct, 20 nov .

Please help.

iOS 13.5
Xcode 10.15.5

If I am using the API incorrectly please let me know. I am not aware of any requirement to wait after using the SciChart API.

It appears the SCILegendModifier has some kind of timing bug. If you draw a chart on a surface with a legend, then clear the chart, then add another plot to the same surface you will notice the legend has stale data. However, if you clear the surface and wait a second before you add the new plot it will work as expected.

I created a sample Xcode project to demonstrate the issue. See the attachment

I also created a video to demonstrate the issue:

I have a workaround so this is not urgent, but I would like to remove the delay for my production release.

In the real-time line chart, I want an animation like the video(link below).
Can you be provided with animations such as a point where a point drawn in real time continues to blink?

Hello, I have tried to see if it is possible to show the rollover without showing any labels so that is is just a vertical bar. I was searching on StackOverflow and a few answers said it was not possible to omit any of the values from the graph. I did see that we can customize the cursor, is it possible to just have it be a vertical bar instead of a cross?? Then I could just use it instead of the default rollover.

I am linking a mockup we made of what we want to make. In the image, you have the graphic showing where the use as pressed, and above the graphic, we will show and update a graphic with the relevant information for that point.

Also, I will need to programmatically dismiss it so it will need to stay visible even if the user is panning or zooming.

I’m trying to clear a SCIUniformHeatmapDataSeries after connecting it to a SCIChartSurface, but it is very slow and energy consuming. However, if I clear the data series before it is connected to the sci chart, then the clearing is pretty fast. How can I clear the data series after it is connected to the chart surface quickly? Do I have to make a new data series, clear it, and connect to the scichartsurface every time I want to clear a data series? This is for iOS by the way.
EDIT: code

for i in 0..<data.MATRIX_COLUMNS {
        for j in 0..<data.MATRIX_ROWS  {
            data.ecm2DMatrix[i][j] = Double.nan
            SCIUpdateSuspender.usingWith(charts.ecmSurface) {
      [i][j], atX: i, y: j)

Hi guys,

I’m currently evaluating SciChart on iOS using Swift. It seems to have an excellent level of customisation and is almost a drop-in fit for what were are looking for.

I’m creating a timeline chart of candlesticks which the user can pan through. However while the zooming of the Y axis keeps the candles nicely in frame, the zoom snaps into place instantly as the pan happens which is very disorienting. Searching the docs, I cannot see a way to cause a smooth animation as the chart automatically zooms in and out.

This is probably the only thing that we really need to do to make this product work for us so hopefully there is an answer to solve this for us!

Thanks in advance!

I am using an SCINumericAxis for my y-axis. I am setting the visibleRange to (Min = 28, Max = 76). I am leaving the minorsPerMajor to the default of 5. However when looking at my graph (attached) you can see that the major tick labels are actually every 6 minors, e.g. 30, 36, 42, etc. when they should be 30, 35, 40, etc for minorsPerMajor set to 5.

Please advise on how to fix this issue as my major tick labels should be every 5, not every 6.

See the screen shot (attached)

To dupe this start on the SciChart home page, select documentation, select iOS, then enter anything into the search box.

I get the same results with Chrome and Safari.

I have followed the example at: for creating a legend with a custom item.

The initial problem I am trying to solve is that the default legend has a black background but my chart is white. If I set the background of the legend to white, this is a problem because the series text is white, so you can’t read it any longer. Therefore in order to have a legend with a white background to match my chart, I needed custom legend items to be able to set the series text color to black.

I have created my ChartLegendCell.swift file based on the example and my ChartLegendCell.xib which has a UIView and a UILabel. I incorporate these into my code exactly as in the example. However the legend does not show up upon render. I added a breakpoint inside the ChartLegendCell.swift class and I see bindSeriesInfo method called twice per series. What I noticed is that the first time it is called, printing out self.bounds shows (0,0,230,35) which is correct, but the second time it is called self.bounds is (0,0,0,0).

Is there more code which needs to be added in the ChartLegendCell.swift to make sure the width and height aren’t 0?
