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


With the introduction off dotnet core we started converting our projects into docker container on linux for better management.
One off the tasks still to do is convert a job that sends charts screenshots by email, generated by scicharts WPF currently.

Now my question, is it possible to run scicharts on a linux docker container using dotnet core?
The idea is to generate the graph in memory take a screenshot and save and send that screenshot through an email.

Hi Kevin

I was certain I answered this (perhaps you’ve asked in a support ticket which we have replied to). If not, I apologise!

Quick answer. While .NET Core will run on Linux, WPF won’t. This is an extension provided by Microsoft to .NETCore 3+ which works on Windows only.

SciChart WPF can run inside a Windows service or Azure function to generate screenshot images. We have done this ourselves for a project. Also, SciChart.js can be used to generate images server-side in node.js

Would you like to discuss your requirements further with our sales team? We have a lot of expertise in SciChart for this type of problem and if you need a custom solution or our expert help on how to implement such a thing, we can help.

Best regards,
