Coming Soon to SciChart Q3/Q4 2018
Posted by Julia Skorobogata on 25 July 2018 01:08 PM

We’ve been quietly working away on a few projects for the past few months and wanted to give you an update to show you where SciChart will be going in the near future.

What’s Coming Soon to SciChart WPF?

SciChart WPF remains our flagship product and drives a lot of development, alongside tech support & maintenance (we have answered 692 support tickets for SciChart WPF and released 166 Nightly builds in the past year alone). We are still developing this product adding new features as our userbase requests and also features that are in strong demand.

Some of these are nearly ready for release and are listed below.

WPF New Chart Type: Free Surface Mesh 3D

A new Free Surface Mesh 3D feature will be presented in the upcoming release which will be SciChart WPF v5.2 (Q3 2018).

Free Surface Mesh 3D is a set of 3D charts that plot a surface mesh in 3D space. This chart type allows plotting closed objects in 3D that are not restricted by data laying down in the XZ plane. The charts can render different types of data including ellipsoid, cylinder, polar and even custom free surface mesh data in 3D. Please see the preview of the examples below:

scichart-surface-mesh-3D-custom-free-surface-mesh-data

Free Surface Mesh 3D with custom data

scichart-surface-mesh-3D-cylinder-data

Free Surface Mesh 3D with cylinder data

scichart-surface-mesh-3D-polar-data

Free Surface Mesh 3D with polar data

scichart-surface-mesh-3D-ellipsoid-data

Free Surface Mesh 3D with ellipsoid data

WPF New Feature: WPF Polar chart 3D

One of the chart types listed above is a 3D Polar Chart type, which allows for a flat disk with optional hole in the center defined by an equation and 2D array of data, contours, and paletted similar to a heatmap or surface-mesh chart. This chart type can be used in 3D mode or when an orthogonal overhead camera is presented, as a 2D Chart.

All new 3D Chart types will be made available to all customers of SciChart WPF SDK Professional, SDK Enterprise and 3D Professional who are in support subscription, free of charge. 

WPF New Feature: Drawing tools and Technical Indicators for trading applications

SciChart is widely used in trading and financial applications by our customers. Since a number of customers approached us to ask for these tools to be built, we have decided to make a step forward with a set of drawing tools for different patterns in trading.

The next release is expecting to bring a number of new annotation types to be used in trading systems, including:

  • Elliott Wave pattern
  • XABCD (Gartley / Bat / Harmonic polygon shapes) drawing
  • Head and Shoulders Pattern
  • Andrew’s Pitch Fork
  • Fibonacci Retracement
  • Fibonacci Extension
  • Also, we will be adding free brush style drawing to mark up the chart.

All of the following can be created programmatically, on user click, edited & dragged about, styled and persisted.

Please see some examples below:

scichart-elliott-wave-pattern-trading-tool

Elliott Wave Pattern, Trading Tools

scichart-xabcd-pattern-trading-tool

XABCD Pattern, Trading Tools

scichart-head-and-shoulders-pattern-trading-tool

scichart-fibonacci-retracement-trading-tool

Fibonacci Retracement Trading Tool

scichart-fibonacci-retracement-extension-trading-tool

Fibonacci Retracement Extension Trading Tool

scichart-free-brush-drawing-trading-tools

Free Brush Drawing, Trading Tools

All new drawing tools will be in the SciChart.DrawingTools.dll package and will be made available to all customers of SciChart WPF SDK Professional, SDK Enterprise and 2D Enterprise who are in support subscription, free of charge. These drawing tools will not be available to SciChart WPF 2D Professional customers. 

What’s next in SciChart iOS / Android / Xamarin?

SciChart iOS & Android has been moving along with some progress to support latest SDKs but behind the curtain we are working on our big vision of having 2D & 3D Charts available on all native platforms, including Windows, Mac OSX, iOS, Android and with Xamarin & Xamarin Forms support.

Our next big piece of work is to bring 3D Charts to iOS & Android devices, which we have been working on quietly for the past year

SciChart iOS /Android / Xamarin v2.2 released!
Posted by Julia Skorobogata on 12 July 2018 01:14 PM

We are really excited to announce, that SciChart iOS/ Android / Xamarin v2.2 is released! 

What’s New in SciChart iOS /Android /Xamarin v 2.2?

There is a large number of improvements and bug fixes made in SciChart iOS/ Android / Xamarin v2.2. We have made a major step forward by refactoring of our examples, fixing memory leaks, crashes, and bugs and other improvements. It is recommended for all users of SciChart v2.1 to update to the latest version! Please see more information below:

Important Changes 
  • iOS Charts have been made compatible with Xcode 10 and iOS 12 by removing deprecated libstdc++ with libc++. SciChart iOS v2.2 no longer uses this library and will work with future version(s) of iOS & Xcode.

  • Android library has been updated to support library 27.1.0 and Kotlin 1.2.30
Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed hitTestAxis method which caused issues with axis tooltips values
  • SCIOS-626: fixed annotations don’t clip by axes and drawn over them.
  • SCIOS-639: fixed annotation added after chart initializing is not being rendered
  • SCIOS-640: fixed Incorrect casting from Swift.Array<Double> to SCIGeneric
  • SC-DROID-526: fixed incorrect rendering of RTL text caused by trying to reuse text layout ( it was defined it with Integer.MAX_VALUE width )
  • SC-DROID-525: fixed incorrect text rendering in heatmap ( added flipping of x and y coordinates if the chart is vertical )
  • SCIOS-624: fixed placing annotations below chart doesn’t work

  • SC-DROID-522: refactored PieSegment and PieDonutRenderableSeriesBase to correctly handle case when PieSegment changes;
  • SC-DROID-520: fixed incorrect hit test which is caused by updating xValues and yValues but not indices:
    • now render pass data remains the same and we just draw spline lines and perform hit test on original data;
    • updated spline calculations which resulted in all NaN values – added n parameter to prevent going outside renderPassData bounds if x/yValues array are larger than
    • actual renderPassData size; removed unused code from spline calculations;
    • changed SplineLineRenderableSeries: now we calculate spline coords for coordinates instead of values right before drawing for correct work of animations;
    • Added behavior options for tooltip modifiers; and added bindings.
  • Fixed: issue in legendDataSource.
  • Fixed: crash during measuring custom legend item is using a custom nib file from the main bundle.
  • Fixed: addPointsPerformance demo example

  • SC-DROID-511: Fixed cursor tooltip which wasn’t shown for the second half of the last candle in series;  changed calculations in HitTestHelpers.isPointWithinXBounds() to prevent precision problems when performing hit test
  • SC-DROID-513: fixed incorrect layout of horizontal legend – added usage of HorizontalScrollView when legend has horizontal orientation
  • Fixed warning: atomic property cannot pair a synthesized setter/getter with a user-defined setter/getter
  • Fixed: color of marker view of legend item
  • Fixed: broken test by using a proper calendar in SCIDateUtil instead or using NSCalendar currentCalendar
  • Fixed: flickering of the edge labels (also hiding them sometimes)
  • Fixed: error when sometimes onVisibleRangeChanged() wasn’t called at the end of animation; added setMinMaxForced into IRange to set new Min/Max values even if they are equal to current Min/Max values + added tests
  • Fixed: non-working onVisibleRangeChange method in IViewportManager; modified unit tests;
  • Fixed: incorrect buildToolsVersion and updated SciChart dependencies to v2.1 in exported projects
  • Fixed: broken parameter names generation in Xamarin: updated path required for metadata generator;
  • SC-DROID-509: fixed incorrect drawing of pie and donut charts when there is only one segment; refactored drawing code;

    • added common Init method to ExampleViewBase which supposed to contain commonViewINItialisation;
    • added labelProvider to columns side-by-side examples;
  • SCIOS-625:  legend changes:
    • updated Xamarin.iOS bindings and examples;
    • added property which allows dequeuing custom legend items from UICollectionView;

Xamarin Forms 3.0 Released, WPF support in preview
Posted by Andrew on 13 June 2018 05:42 PM

We stumbled upon the news recently that Xamarin.Forms 3.0 has preview support for WPF!

This is really interesting for us at SciChart, as we make iOS Charts, Android Charts with Xamarin Support, as well as WPF charts, but we do not yet have a UWP chart solution. We feel that the API for UWP is incomplete and too immature to make good charting components or applications, so have avoided too much investment into this platform until it showed more promise.

Well maybe we won’t have to? If WPF becomes a first class citizen of the Xamarin ecosystem, then this should really be the first choice for cross-platform development of Xamarin applications which require a Windows app footprint.

Find out more about Xamarin’s plans here.

We will be prototyping to see what we can do with these frameworks soon.

Getting Started with SciChart for Xamarin
Posted by Andrew on 06 June 2017 10:56 AM

Make yourself a coffee and let’s get started with SciChart Xamarin!

Quickest of the Quick Start Guides

Ok, so you’ve chosen the SciChart charting library. Great! Now what?

Check out this Quickest of the QuickStart Guide below which shows you how to download, run the Xamarin Chart Examples Suite and see what SciChart Xamarin  can do.

01 Downloading the SciChart Xamarin SDK

The SciChart Xamarin examples is included as a ZIp file on our website however, the libraries themselves are integrated using the NuGet* package manager.

Note that SciChart Xamarin assemblies are hosted on a private NuGet feed. Make sure you add the SciChart Feed URL to Visual Studio.

We have also created a 5 minute video showing you how to setup the NuGet feed, compile the examples and get them running on your device.

02 Learning by Example – The Examples Suite

In case you have downloaded SciChart from our Download page you will find a rich Xamarin Chart examples app with over 30+ examples showing you how to create static and real-time Xamarin Chart types with SciChart.

You can find out more about what examples are available at the SciChart Xamarin Examples Suite page.

03 Learning by Tutorial

We know how it might be frustrating when you spend hours trying to create some simple thing. With this idea in our minds we have created a Tutorials set, which covers following topics:

Xamarin.iOS Tutorials

Xamarin.Android Tutorials

Each Tutorial has an appropriate Visual Studio project which you can find in SciChart Xamarin GitHub Repository.

04 Where is the Examples Source Code?

In case you’ve referenced the SciChart from our NuGet feed, you still have an ability to download the Examples Suite as well as Tutorials Demo just cloning our GitHub repository and also view our examples online.

You will find a lot of useful information which can help you to start using SciChart in the best way. The Examples Suite is a powerful demo application which contains more than 50 examples, some of them are listed below:

05 I just want to build a Simple Line Chart

Ok, so check out our Tutorials on Creating your first SciChartSurface in Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android. It will walk you through the basics, including setting up a SciChartSurface, setting up X and Y Axes.

Then, take a look at The Line Series Type, which shows how to add a single line series with some XY data to the chart. Finally, see our sections on adding Zoom Behaviour and a Tooltip and you’re all set!

07 Where is Documentation

SciChart iOS/Android has online documentation, however SciChart for Xamarin does not. This is because xamarin is simply a binding library wrapper around the native iOS/Android controls, so the API is largely the same.

For reference, you can find the following resources below.

08 Great, but I Have a Question about …

We believe you will not find a better supported Xamarin chart than SciChart!

If you have a question, please feel free to ask at our Forums page. This is a Q&A forum page where we aim to answer all queries promptly. Please direct Xamarin specific questions to the ios/android forums respectively.

But if you have specific sales or technical question, you can Contact us anytime and one of our staff will get back to you. We aim to answer all requests within 1-business day.

During your trial of SciChart Xamarin we will gladly answer your technical questions about the chart. After the trial expires, you may purchase a support subscription to maintain access to our 5-star priority support.

Thanks, and enjoy!

SciChart iOS /Android / Xamarin BETA Released!
Posted by Julia Skorobogata on 05 June 2017 04:00 PM

We are really excited to announce, the result of a year of hard work and effort by our mobile team, that SciChart iOS/Android v2 is around the corner!

We are choosing to release today as a ‘BETA’ and invite feedback from our user-base. A full release will be done shortly, once we have polished everything and done final testing and checks.

SciChart Mobile v2: A huge Step forward

Our iOS and Android Charts feature a number of new chart types, including Bubble, Error Bars, Heatmap, Stacked Column and Stacked Mountain

SciChart iOS/Android v2 is a huge step forward in our iOS & Android charts. While our first version of SciChart iOS/Android benchmarked as the fastest Android and fastest iOS charts in the world, they lacked a few critical features that were important to would-be customers and creators of rich mobile charting applications.

Thanks to some brave early adopters, and great feedback from our iOS/Android customers, we have done a lot of work to improve our  iOS & Android charts, and bring you Xamarin support in our latest major release, as well as a host of new features and improvements that will make your apps really stand out.

SciChart iOS/Android Showcase features a Spectrum Analyzer app!

We’ve done a lot of work to optimize performance for swift users (even more!) and update to Swift 3 support on iOS, while maintaining our Objective-C heritage for our iOS Charts. We’ve created and updated 60 examples for each of SciChart iOS, SciChart Android as well as 20+ examples for SciChart Xamarin, showcasing the speed, power and flexibility of our iOS & Android charts. These examples are going to be published soon and we have a host of website updates in the works as well.

 

We’ve created a brand new Showcase application which has at the moment two ‘featured apps’ – a Spectrum Analyzer which analyzes audio from the microphone in realtime, and an ECG monitor which you can download and use to get started creating realtime scientific apps right away.

Multi pane stock charts are super awesome now on iOS/Android and Xamarin!

SciChart iOS/Android v2 is being marketed towards creators of scientific and financial apps.

Apps that require realtime, big data, fast updates, displaying of large amounts information from sensors, financial data-feeds and remote servers.

Stock charting (financial charting) is a first class citizen in SciChart iOS & Android, allowing you to create rich, realistic trading apps using our libraries. You can create audio analyzers, monitor sensor data, hook up our charts to medical test equipment and more. SciChart makes your impossible projects possible with our speed and power which is second to none!

Features in SciChart iOS/Android v2

  • Unification of the Android and iOS APIs.
    • This has resulted in some API changes (list to be published) but also brings uniform API to our WPF (Windows), iOS, Android and Xamarin charts.
  • Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android support, enabling use of our iOS/Android charts in Xamarin applications.
  • New Themes and Theme manager support, custom themes.
