What’s New in v8.3 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 v8.2 include:

  • SC-7444 Improved the RenderContext2D.DrawText API by adding support for multi-line text
  • SC-7445 Added support for templating the content of FastStripeRenderableSeries via the StripeContentTemplate property
  • SC-7049 Implemented several diagonal-picking algorithms for the SurfaceMesh3D series, selectable via the GridPartitionMethod property. This enhancement allows for optimized SurfaceMesh3D rendering for specific datasets
  • SC-7920 Fixed a rendering issue where using auto-ranging would result in incorrect initial rendering of FastStripeRenderableSeries
  • SC-7918 Corrected a rendering failure in the hardware-accelerated renderer for thin lines of FastStripeRenderableSeries when zoomed in significantly
  • SC-7916 Fixed a native exception that occurred when attempting to render any XYY data on a non-licensed PC
  • SC-7897 Resolved an exception issue related to the MVVM Axis API in certain scenarios
  • SC-7896 Addressed a rendering issue where software renderers would display thin stripes of FastStripeRenderableSeries with a stroke color, even when StrokeThickness was set to 0
  • SC-7444 Fixed an issue where escape characters in a string would cause an exception in the RenderContext2D.DrawText API
  • SC-7919 Corrected width synchronization issues between two charts in the “Spectrogram Chart Demo”
  • SC-7905 Resolved an issue with opening hyperlinks in the WPF Examples Demo for .NET and .NET Core
  • SC-7798 Fixed a missing file issue in the exported solution for the “1 Billion FIFO” example
  • Addressed an issue where axes would remain visible on the surface after being removed through the Axes MVVM API
  • Updated “Gantt Chart” Example: Implemented a simplified approach for a more user-friendly experience
  • SC-7868 Resolved an issue where OneWay binding to the VisualXcceleratorEngine.IsEnabled property was unintentionally removed when setting the property internally
  • SC-7845 Resolved a specific issue resulting in the duplication of Y-Axes when utilizing the MVVM Axis API under certain conditions
  • SC-7856 Fixed an intermittent exception that occurred during the Y-Axis range calculation process
  • SC-7850 Fixed a regression in the Y-Axis range calculation for StackedSeries, particularly when Double.NaN values were present in Y-Values
  • SC-7866 Fixed an issue causing inaccurate Fill color in FastStripeRenderableSeries for 1px-wide Rectangles when using software renderers
  • SC-7833 Fixed resampling artifacts in FastStripeRenderableSeries that were previously observed
