Can SciChart be used in UITableviewCell? Is it possible to use Software rendering on iOS?

The OpenGL/Metal charts are great, but I suspect Software rendering would be a better for displaying data in UITableViewCells. There are many mobile apps out there that use charts in tableviews and I’d love to be able to use SciChart here too.

    Short answer is no software renderer at present, I don’t think it would be super hard to implement it though as our drawing code is abstracted behind IRenderContext2D protocol. I believe other customers are using SciChart iOS inside UITableViews, but I will need to ask the ios-dev team when they are back from public holiday tomorrow. Thanks! Andrew

    Nudged the team about this today (after Easter weekend). Will get back to you shortly!

    No hurry… if it isn’t possible to use the charts in the tableviews now I’ll just submit a feature request ;)

    Hello Simon, sure it’s possible to use it in UITableViewCell, no need to use software renderer for that.
  • Simon Persson
    Awesome! Thanks Nazar and Andrew :)

Hi Simon,

As Nazar mentioned, it just works.

Please see the Video showing SciChart.iOS in UITableView that he created.

Best regards,
