In the past few weeks, we have been working on shaping our product and vision for SciChart WPF, with the help of feedback from our userbase and potential customers. One of the requests which you have asked for is the ability to have the SciChart WPF Examples source code available *outside the installer*. As a result, we have taken the step to setup automatic publishing of the SciChart WPF Examples Suite to Github, referencing the SciChart WPF DLLs from NuGet. We are hoping that this will be a powerful resource which will enable our users to fall into the pit of success when using SciChart!

What is in SciChart WPF Examples Repository?

The SciChart WPF Examples Repository can be found on Github under the ABTSoftware organization. This is a public repository with an open source License. You are free to clone it using Git or SVN clients, download the code, and use anything in it for commercial or open source purposes.

The repository contains

SciChart WPF Examples Source Code
  • The full source code for the SciChart WPF v4.x Examples Suite
  • The full source code for the SciChart WPF v5.x Examples Suite (BETA)

WPF Charts by SciChart WPF v4 SDK

Cloning the Repository and Building the Source

  • You can clone the repository with Git, Tortoise SVN client, or download a zip.
  • You will need Visual Studio 2010, 2012, 2013 or 2015 installed.
  • You will need to setup the NuGet feed as per our instructions ‘Getting Started with NuGet’
  • After that just build and run. The SciChart.Wpf.Examples will get all packages from NuGet and will build and run!

Wait, What? SciChart Examples v5?

That’s right! You heard correctly. We are now publishing an Early Access Preview of the the SciChart WPF Examples v5 to the Github repository, along side SciChart WPF v5 BETA to our abtsoftware-bleedig-edge (BETA) NuGet Feed.

SciChart WPF v5 IS A VERY EARLY BETA. This version of SciChart is very much in flux. We wanted to be able to showcase what we have been working on as well as give some of our customers early access to the next major version of SciChart, which is currently on schedule to be released in May.

New Features coming soon to SciChart WPF v5

WPF Radar Chart

From one of the surveys we learned that  Radar Charts are important to many users.

This 2D Chart will be added to SciChart WPF v 5 to allow displaying radars with customizable axes and selectable series or data-points. This chart type has been built from the ground up using our fast 2D drawing technology and looks great!

radarchart The WPF Radar Chart type allows unlimited, configurable ‘Radar Axis’ with data series as Polygons, Point-Markers or Lines. Tooltips and Legends and theming come as standard

You can see an example of use here.

WPF Discontinuous DateTime Axis

In WPF v5 new DiscontinuousDateTimeAxis type is going to be introduced. This is a special axis type, specifically for financial / trading charts, which will allow you to skip ranges (overnight, weekend). It will support series with differing lengths for the first time in trading charts. This opens the possibility of all sorts of indicators and filtering techniques previously impossible with SciChart. It will allow you to use Range, Tick, Volume or Time based bars. It preserves the position on Annotations on time-frame changes. It allows showing/hiding of overnight trading on exchanges with extended trading data.

discoaxis The DiscontinuousDateTimeAxis type allows Volume, Range, Price and Tick Bars as well as a calendar for skipping overnight segments/weekends for true support for financial stock charts.

You can see an example of use here.

Uniform Heatmap Type

The heatmap type is undergoing radical transformation. We have a new FastUniformHeatmapRenderableSeries. This is up to 10x faster than the existing FastHeatmapRenderableSeries for the case where cells are uniformly spaced and supports the PaletteProvider API. This works best with DirectX.

The Uniform heat map type has been heavily optimised, now yielding up to 10x faster rendering when compared to v4.x FastHeatmapRenderableSeries The Uniform heat map type has been heavily optimised, now yielding up to 10x faster rendering when compared to v4.x FastHeatmapRenderableSeries

You can see an example of use here

Non-Uniform Heatmap Type

Still in progress, we have a Non-Uniform heatmap type which will supercede the existing FastHeatmapRenderableSeries. This fixes issues where the Y cells don’t match the spacing provided by the user. We also hope it will be faster and more flexible than the existing FastHeatmapRenderableSeries. Still a work in progress
