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

// SciChart Documentation

Developers! To help you dig into the deeper functionality of SciChart, we have prepared online documentation for your favourite platforms.
Please take a look at the resources below. If you have any feedback or suggestions on how to make the getting-started process better, please do contact us!

Note: At this time we do not have documentation for Xamarin however, our Xamarin bindings are simply wrappers around native iOS and Android chart controls. We have prepared both Tutorials and Examples to help you get started with Xamarin.

// Documentation Popular Topics


The ChartModifier API documentation walks through the behavior modifiers in SciChart, which allow adding Zooming, Panning behavior, Tooltips, Legends and Selection. This powerful API may also be extended by overriding the ChartModifierBase type.

Resources

The Axis API

The Axis API Documentation walks through the axis types in SciChart, such as NumericAxis, DateTimeAxis, LogarithmicNumericAxis, CategoryDateTimeAxis and shows how to add them into your charting application. This section of documentation also shows how to configure the axis to style it, change text formatting, change tick label frequency and more.

The Annotations API

The Annotations API documentation shows you how to add annotations to a SciChart chart, including Text, Box, Line, Horizontal Line, Vertical Line and Axis Marker. Our Annotations API also allows you to create your own custom annotations, to display custom markers on the chart and more.

Resources

Class Hierachy and Members

For each of our platforms, we have used a tool similar to Doxygen to extract info from our assemblies and output to class hierachy documentation. This results in thousands of pages but includes every single class, member, function and property that is exposed in the SciChart public API. Use this if you need a high level of detail when working with SciChart.
