The exception happens on the GC finalizer thread and has the following call stack:

SharpDX.dll!SharpDX.ComObject.SharpDX.IUnknown.Release() Line 256 C#
SharpDX.dll!SharpDX.ComObject.Dispose(bool disposing) Line 286 C#
SharpDX.dll!SharpDX.DisposeBase.CheckAndDispose(bool disposing =
false) Line 59 C# SharpDX.dll!SharpDX.DisposeBase.~DisposeBase() Line

ntdll.dll!00007ffc5d1fcb31() Unknown

I have a single SciChartSurface that is plotting a single FastImpulseRenderableSeries, which is bound using MVVM (SeriesBinding/ImpulseRenderableSeriesViewModel). Only debug builds appear to be affected.

Do I need to be disposing or otherwise cleaning up any of the SciChart objects I create?

I’m evaluating SciChart for use in a production app.

Is there any way to log exceptions generated by SciChart? Currently I’m logging all handled and unhandled exceptions in my app to my server so that issues can be flagged without users having to manually submit support tickets. SciChart is printing internal exceptions to console – is there any way to override that with our own error handling mechanism? If not, how should we monitor for production errors generated internally by SciChart?

I’ve installed the trial/demo SciChart and am trying to use it in my project to test performance.

The sample project works well and the WPF Examples Suite also works fine.

I’m referencing all the SciChart dlls in my project and added a simple bar chart that I copied from the Examples Suite. The app starts up well, but when the view that contains the bar chart is loaded, I get an exception saying: “The registry key specified by the RegistryStoragePath property could not be opened.” (See attached image Exception.png).
Trying to debug and find out what’s going on, the attached “Process Monitor.png” image is the result of the registry access from my App when loading it (I’m not sure if it helps, though).

Any thoughts on what can be happening?

I’m trying to change the AutoRange property of my axis in a VisualStateManager storyboard and it’s throwing an exception saying the value is invalid. Is this not possible or should the object/property be accessed differently?

Exception: “The animation(s) applied to the ‘AutoRange’ property calculate a current value of ‘AutoRange.Once’, which is not a valid value for the property.”

<ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames Storyboard.TargetProperty="AutoRange" Storyboard.TargetName="XAxis">
<DiscreteObjectKeyFrame KeyTime="0" Value="AutoRange.Once"/>
<sc:NumericAxis x:Name="XAxis" AxisTitle="Time (s)" TitleFontSize="14" AutoRange="Always"/>
