What’s new in v6.0.2?

Exceptions fixed

  • SC-5274 Crash in PointLineSceneEntity.CreateNativeMeshes in some conditions
  • SC-5265 After a 3D chart is no longer garbage collected: Exception – Native collection has been destructed
  • SC-5253 TradeAnnotations demo crashes in WPF v6 Examples Suite
  • SC-5245 Computers without D3DCompiler_47.dll can’t run SciChart WPF v6
  • SC-5235 Fixed NullReferenceException when removing annotation after changing its’ position
  • SC-5251 Fixed condition overflow in the AggregateByRange Filter,

Visual Errors fixed

  • SC-5252 Partially full Fifo DataSeries does not draw in some cases after upgrade to WPF v6
  • SC-5221 Wrong FastLineRenderableSeries geometry when X values are large and VisualXcceleratorEngine is enabled
  • SC-5249 Chart is blank in WPF v6 if one RenderableSeries does not have a DataSeries even if others do
  • SC-5250 Fixed multiple Aggregation Filter issues in realtime trading charts.
  • SC-5234 Charts are blank for some customers after they upgraded to v6
  • SC-5214 The Fill of the PointMarker becomes transparent if SciChart3DSurface.CoordinateSystem property is set to RightHanded
  • Blank 3D chart on startup by forcing GPU to wait for the first 8 frames after chart first shown.

Performance Improvements

  • SC-5268 Improve performance of SciChartSurface when UI Thread very busy through use of improved render scheduling.
    • To enable the new mode set the static RenderSurfaceBase.UseThreadedRenderScheduler property to true.
    • This mode particularly helps performance in Windows Forms (WinForms) applications, as it raises the scheduling priority of WPF Rendering.
    • Be advised this mode is experimental.
  • VisualXcceleratorEngine was using UseAlternativeFillSource always which is very slow on older GPUs. Disabled this default flag (was default=false in SciChart v5) and allowed user to set it manually


  • NuGet packages show Getting Started pages after first install.
  • NuGet packages show correct icon.
  • SC-5269 Changing DrawMajorGridLines Style doesn’t work
  • SC-5266 TooltipModifier3D shows empty X,Y,Z data values for UniformColumn3D
  • SC-5237 There are no histograms in the SciChart v6 version of the MarketProfileTradingExample
  • SC-5199 The keyboard event seems not to get through to the modifier in SciChart v6
  • SC-5264 Candlestick Width is changing when panning in X-direction
  • Update the SciChartPerformanceCounter to use Int64 so we can profile point-counts over Int32.MaxValue (2 billion points+)
  • Resolved several errors in AggregateByRange, AggregateByCount filters when used in realtime applications.
