SciChart® the market leader in Fast WPF Charts, WPF 3D Charts, iOS Chart, Android Chart and JavaScript Chart Components


I haven’t found anywhere on the site where the new Visual Studio and .Net Framework is listed. Has there been any testing done up til now on it?

Any plans yet for when/if they will be supported?

Hey Michael,

Regarding Windows8, VS2012, WinRT, our stance is this. It’s extremely important to our long term roadmap to port to Win8 (Desktop, Tablet, Phone). However, as of now we’ve not done any testing on these platforms. The reason for this is it is not in demand (you’re the first to mention it).

May I ask – are you just gathering information for future systems or are you interested in developing a Win8 product now? As far as I’m aware, .NET4.5 is desktop mode and .NET4.0 code should be backwards compatible. It’s WinRT (Metro) where we will have to make changes to the code to make it compatible. Since we have a Silverlight codebase (and Win8 is basically Silverlight 6 in disguise!) I anticipate it won’t be too painful!

Best regards,

UPDATE: June 2014

As of now SciChart supports .NET 4.0, .NET 4.5, Silverlight 5 on Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2010, 2012, 2013. We haven’t yet ported to WinRT (Windows Metro) but if enough people request it, we will. Right now all the demand seems to be in WPF! So let us know in the comments if you want Windows Metro.

    Hi Andrew. Sorry for the late reply, I've been out of the office and didn't realize you had responded (There's no email notification). I'm not currently interested in WinRT or Windows 8, but we may be moving to VS2012 purely for the better WPF development experience and IDE performance when dealing with a large solution like ours. Also Our app is still just a desktop app and a Silverlight 5 app.
