Quickest of the Quick Start Guide
Ok so you’ve downloaded and installed the SciChart WPF v6 SDK Trial. Great! Now what?
Check out this Quickest of the QuickStart Guide below which shows you how to open the Examples Suite, work through the tutorials and see what SciChart can do.
1. Learning by Example – The Examples Suite
The SciChart WPF SDK Installer features a rich examples suite with over 130+ 2D & 3D WPF Chart examples, including full text search, source-code exports and more.
We also have a full walkthrough of starting and using the Examples Suite in the SciChart Documentation.
2. Starting a SciChart WPF Trial
In previous versions of SciChart WPF, you could download the DLLs from NuGet or our website at www.scichart.com/downloads and it would ‘just work’ for 30 days. With the release of SciChart WPF v6 we have introduced a new cross-platform licensing mechanism which is common to all our platforms.
Take a moment to start a trial now, so that you can get working as soon as possible. For all licensing WPF questions, please see Licensing SciChart WPF.Licensing SciChart WPF
3. Learn with Tutorials
We now have a full set of tutorials online, to walk you through the basics of getting to know SciChart WPF. These can be found below:
The tutorial source code is also available on Github under github.com/abtsoftware/scichart.wpf.examples -> tutorials.
We recommend to learn SciChart quickly, get through the tutorials (MVVM or code-behind) as soon as you can, as they will teach you a lot of techniques quickly (Series, data, real-time updates, tooltips, zooming, panning, legends, annotations and more)
4. Compiling Example Source-Code
Our examples suite allows you to not only view source-code but also export individual examples to stand alone Visual Studio project.
If that’s not enough, the entire Examples Suite source-code as well as the tutorials source is now available on Github as a public repository you can clone. You can find out more in the page SciChart WPF Examples, Tutorials Source now on Github.
We are also publishing next major versions as an early access preview to this channel.
Make sure if you try to build the examples suite from Github that you add the SciChart nightly-build NuGet feed to Visual Studio. You will also need Visual Studio 2019 & .NET Core 3 SDK to compile all the examples. This is why we have the single-example export feature! It’s quicker and faster to try just one example like this.
5. Ok Great! So Where is the Documentation?
All of our documentation is online. Please see the following resources to help you get started.
6. Great, but I have a Question about …
We believe you will not find a better-supported WPF Chart than SciChart!
If you have a question, please try our new full site search engine (top of the page), or, dare we say it, Google! This has been custom-built to search the Forums and Knowledgebase, giving you relevant and accurate search results. There are thousands of pages on the SciChart site with content to search from, so if you have a query about SciChart WPF Tooltips, or SciChart Licensing, just try the search and you should be able to find something useful.
But if that’s not enough, 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.
Thanks and enjoy!
