What’s New in v8.2 of SciChart’s WPF Charts?

This release is a cumulative update with fixes and minor enhancements which is backward compatible to version 8.0 of SciChart WPF. It’s recommended for all users on v8.x to upgrade.

Changes since v8.1 include:

  • Improved rendering error logging for better clarity and diagnostics
  • Clarified error messages when creating DataSeries with unsupported data types
  • Enhanced Dispose pattern implementation in SciChart 3D with improved management of locks and managed resources
  • SC-7622 Added the ability to exclude a RenderableSeries3D from hit-testing by setting the IsHitTestVisible property
  • SC-7554 Fixed autoranging behavior that would ignore ZeroLineY for FastColumnRenderableSeries, FastImpulseRenderableSeries and StackedSeries
  • SC-7719 Fixed an issue when SciChartSurface would not pull new RenderableSeries from a bound collection through SeriesBinding after Unload/Load
  • SC-7800 Fixed an issue when VerticalSliceModifier wouldn’t hide VerticalLines when disabled
  • SC-7830 Fixed an issue when SciChartSurface would throw a SynchronizationLockException during rendering if there were no axes
  • SC-7838 Fixed incorrect behavior of StackedSeries when ZeroLineY was smaller or greater than Y-values in a series
  • Added the possibility to turn off resampling for FastStripeRenderableSeries using the ResamplingMode property
  • SC-7734 Fixed failing of example export on some PCs due to missing trailing slash in the export path
  • SC-7792 Fixed a NullReferenceException in SciChart3D when hit-testing invisible or not yet rendered RenderableSeries3D objects
  • SC-7749 Fixed InvalidCastException with StripeDataSeries when data points number exceeded size of the viewport
  • SC-7739 Fixed the issue with serialization of AnnotationCollection that would cause the default XML Serializer to skip other properties in the same class
  • SC-7815 Fixed the issue when WaterfallRenderableSeries3D threw ArithmeticOperation Exception when hit-tested while invisible or before the first render
  • SC-7647 Fixed the issue when repeated adding and removing of WaterfallRenderableSeries3D slowed down series creation time
