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 {
return UIApplicationMain(argc, argv, nil, NSStringFromClass([AppDelegate class])); <–

in the task stack:

0x103b530e0 <+0>:  ldr    x8, [x0, #0x8]
  0x103b530e4 <+4>:  ldr    w8, [x8, w1, sxtw #2]   <--
0x103b530e8 <+8>:  scvtf  d0, w8
0x103b530ec <+12>: ret

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

Thank you very much!

Due to the app upgrade, the code is in objective-c. This is my initialization code:

- (void) loadSciChartSurface:(SCIChartSurface*)surface {
sciChartSurface = surface;
sciChartSurface.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = true;

// scroll
SCIZoomPanModifier *zoomPan = [SCIZoomPanModifier new];
zoomPan.receiveHandledEvents = true;
zoomPan.zoomExtentsY = false;
zoomPan.direction = SCIDirection2D_XDirection;
[sciChartSurface.chartModifiers add:zoomPan];

// zoom
SCIPinchZoomModifier *pinchZoomModifier = [SCIPinchZoomModifier new];
pinchZoomModifier.direction = SCIDirection2D_XDirection;
pinchZoomModifier.scaleFactor = 1.5;
[sciChartSurface.chartModifiers add:pinchZoomModifier];

// series
rSeries = [SCIFastLineRenderableSeries new];
xAxis = [SCINumericAxis new];
yAxis = [SCINumericAxis new];

xAxis.visibleRangeChangeListener = ^(id<ISCIAxis> axis, id<ISCIRange> oldRange, id<ISCIRange> newRange, BOOL isAnimating) {

    int min = newRange.minAsDouble;
    int max = newRange.maxAsDouble;
    int center = (min + max) / 2;

    if (center <= 0) {
        axis.visibleRange.min = @(0.0 - xHalfWidth);
        axis.visibleRange.max = @(xWidth - xHalfWidth);
    } else if (center >= dataSamples) {
        axis.visibleRange.min = @(dataSamples - xHalfWidth);
        axis.visibleRange.max = @(dataSamples + xHalfWidth);
    } else {
        // xWith is updated to keep the zoom factor in limits, when (center <= 0) or (center >= dataSamples)
        xWidth = max - min;
        xHalfWidth = xWidth / 2;

[SCIUpdateSuspender usingWithSuspendable:sciChartSurface withBlock:^{
    [sciChartSurface.xAxes add:xAxis];
    [sciChartSurface.yAxes add:yAxis];
    [sciChartSurface.renderableSeries add:rSeries];
    [SCIAnimations sweepSeries:rSeries duration:0.0 andEasingFunction:[SCICubicEase new]];

dataSeries = [[SCIXyDataSeries alloc] initWithXType:SCIDataType_Int yType:SCIDataType_Short];

// x
xWidth = theFileFormat.mSampleRate * MIN_SECONDS_IN_GRID * 1;
xIndex = 0;
xHalfWidth = xWidth / 2;
xAxis.visibleRange = [[SCIDoubleRange alloc] initWithMin:0.0 max:xWidth];

// y
yAxis.visibleRange = [[SCIDoubleRange alloc] initWithMin:SHRT_MIN max:SHRT_MAX];

[self loadDefaultStyle];

Hello Nazar,

Thanks for your response, it seems like a difficult problem to find.

Finally i have solved the problem making a new swift class to manage the chart. This class has the same structure and code and it works fine.

I don’t know if it is possible that the objective-c code compilation is the problem. What do you think about?

Hello Vicente,

Thanks for writing to us. It’s hard to tell what’s wrong. To help you i will need you to provide short sample application, which will reproduce the issue, so we can investigate it further. Thank you for understanding.

Best Regards,
Nazar R.
