Instructions for starting SciChart.js Trials
To try out SciChart.js, you will first need to start a trial. You can do this using our cross-platform licensing wizard which is common to all SciChart platforms.

Next, log in to the Licensing Wizard using your scichart.com username and password. If you do not have an yet, you can create one here.
Once logged in, click “Start Trial” on the Trials tab for SciChart.js.
Your SciChart.js applications on localhost will search for the licensing wizard to validate the trial license locally. Leave the licensing wizard open or minimise to tray while developing!
Activating a Paid Developer License
If you have purchased SciChart.js, you should have received a confirmation e-mail with a Developer Serial key and Runtime key. You can also view purchased license keys and serials in your Profile Page. If you don’t have one, please contact SciChart Sales.
To activate a developer license so that you can unlock the full version of SciChart.js, download the cross platform licensing wizard and install on your Windows or Mac desktop.
Once installed, and you have logged in with scichart.com account, you can activate the developer serial you received when you purchased.
After activation you will see your license status on the wizard homepage.
Note: Your SciChart.js applications on localhost will search for the licensing wizard validate the trial license locally. Leave the licensing wizard open or minimise to tray while developing!
Deploying SciChart.js to Live Sites
When you have a paid SciChart.js developer license, to deploy an application to a domain you need to register that domain with your account.
First, set set a domain at scichart.com/profile:
Next, generate a Runtime Key also at scichart.com/profile.
The Runtime Key must be placed in your application once before any SciChartSurface is shown or instantiated, for example in a Root component in a React App.

Note: You can register a single domain for each developer license you have purchased. Site licenses or company-global licenses can register unlimited domains.
Make sure you update your runtime keys after adding a new domain!
