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

We are pleased to announce a Minor update to SciChart High Performance WPF Charts

v3.3 Build 5909 contains many fixes that you have reported over the last few weeks. Please take a look at the release notes below.

This release contains minor new features, should be backward compatible to SciChart v3.2.x, and it is safe and recommended to upgrade.

It is recommended to use the Installer to update, not our NuGet feed, as several additions have been made to the installer, including packaging of DirectX dependencies and Licensing Wizard proxy server detection/settings improvements.

What’s New in v3.3.0.5909

New/Improved

  • SC-2557 Licensing Wizard now auto-detects proxy and uses port 80 for HTTP licensing communications.Licensing Wizard also shows a licensing server heartbeat, making for much easier licensing & activation when behind a corporate proxy or firewall.
  • SC-2562 Licensing Wizard allows entering of proxy credentials where auto-detection fails.In our BETA testing, the Licensing Wizard improvements raise the percentage of customers who can connect to our licensing server from 75% to 99%.

    NOTE: You should not need to reactivate if you have activated with v3.2. If the Licensing Wizard reports invalid license, please contact us. 

  • SC-2541 Installer now silently installs the DirectX Runtime (D3DX9_43.dll and D3DX10_43.dll) during the SciChart install process. All developer PCs will have the correct DirectX dependencies. See Creating and Deploying Applications with the Direct3D10RenderSurface for more information.
  • DirectX runtime (2.7MByte) is included in the installer so you can redistribute it with your applications in accordance with the Microsoft DirectX Runtime EULA.Updated instructions on the website for redistributing applications with DirectX

    DirectX Dependencies are now silently installed with SciChart v3.3+

  • SC-2538 Direct3D10RenderSurface now works over Remote Desktop, using an alternative to D3DImage which composites the DirectX scene with WPF in a remote-desktop friendly way. OH YEAH!

  • SC-2552 Add support of PaletteProvider for StackedColumns ( added usage of PaletteProvider into StackedColumnsWrapper )
  • SC-1908 Warning to user if data is Unsorted, as unsorted data in SciChart is detrimental to performance. Available when setting DataSeries.AcceptsUnsortedData = false. Default is true for backwards compatibility.Unsorted data is a complete performance killer to SciChart. We would recommend you switch this flag on, and then inform us if you see any exceptions in DataSeries.Append.

Fixes

  • SC-2521 Fixed several performance issues related to FIFO Series incorrectly detecting data was unsorted when data appended and capacity exceeded.
  • SC-2537 Direct3D10CompatibilityHelper.HasDirectX10CompatibleGPU was reporting incorrect results when DirectX11 was installed but GPU only supported DirectX9.This version of SciChart now correctly detects if DirectX is supported and falls back to software if not.
  • SC-2559 DirectX using alternative method to flush the device to fix dropped frames / flicker in some older computers
  • SC-2546 DirectX – surface doesn’t render after its parent has been changed
  • SC-2542 NullReferenceException in LegendModifier if RenderableSeries collection == null
  • SC-2483 DirectX – fixed gradient direction flipped relative to software renderers when Gradient Brush used
  • SC-2556 VerticalLineAnnotation throws in BaseRenderableSeries.HitTest if X1 set to DateTime.MinValue
  • SC-2555 VerticalLineAnnotation crash after VerticalSliceModifier detached and parent surface null and VerticalLineAnnotation.X1 updated
  • SC-2554 Suppress NullReferenceException in AxisArea.Items.Remove when printing to bitmap in memory
  • SC-2549 Fixed a memory leak in CategoryIndexToDataValueConverter which occurred when annotations were added but the chart unloaded
  • SC-2547 Fixed the first axis tick dissappearing when XAxis.FlipCoordinates = true
  • SC-2545 Fixed broken IsDigital behavior for StackedMountainsSeries
  • SC-2544 Fixed a regression issue – Dashed Line rendering gets cut (curve is incorrectly drawn) when High Quality renderer is used and Stroke Dash Array used
