Installation of SciChart

After downloading the trial package for SciChart, unzip to a location of your choice. After doing so, be sure to read our getting started guide:

The installation package contains the following folder structure. From here, you can run the examples by starting the Visual Studio solutions. Ensure that you read the license agreement before doing so.

Currently, SciChart has been built to target .NET4.0, .NET4.5 and Silverlight 4.0/5.0. The compiled dlls can be found under the /lib folder. Example code can be found under /Examples. We suggest referencing the required library directly from Program Files/ABT Software Services Ltd/SciChart/Lib as this will ensure when you get the latest upgrade package the correct libraries are overwritten.

Running the Examples

There are two solutions included with the examples. These are:



Open the desired solution in Visual Studio and press F5 to compile and run the examples. For Silverlight you will need to set the Abt.Controls.SciChart.SL.Example.Web project as startup project.
