Click Above to see how to perform the runtime licensing test

  1. Download this Licensing Test App and unzip it to your computer.
  2. Import SciChart.framework into Test App.
  3. Enter your Runtime License key from your Profile in App.xaml.cs & compile the Licensing Test App
  4. Run the Licensing Test App on the device or simulator where you are experiencing problems.
    1. Expected Result: You should not see a ‘Powered by SciChart’ watermark or a trial expired when running the Licensing Test App.
    2. If you do, contact us, you’ve probably found a bug 🙂

If either expectation above fails, please contact tech support and we will be glad to assist. Please tell us what you tried, and what version of SciChart you are using.

If the expectations above pass, it is likely that the Runtime key has been set incorrectly in your main application. Please double check you have set the Runtime Key once and once only in your app. It should be set before any SciChartSurface instances are created.
