Notes:
- The License for DirectX Renderer is that this will form part of SciChart 3D,
not SciChart WPF.
We are releasing it now as a pre-release but it won't be licensed under your
SciChart WPF license.
Instead, it is licensed as a non-time limited, unrestricted trial of SciChart

3D.
As a result, the Source-Code package does not include the DirectX Renderer
Please feel free to use it in commercial projects and give us your feedback.
As we improve the SciChart 3D Product we will release more DirectX powered fe
atures!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------3.0.2.4282 1st May 2014: SciChart 3.0 Official Release

-----------------------------------------------------------------------2.2.3123 17th September 2013: MINOR UPDATE
-----------------------------------------------------------------------Breaking Changes

SciChart DLL now named with version name, you can reference two versions
of SciChart in the same solution.
This will require that you update your csproj files to reference
the new DLL name
This feature allows you to install multiple versions of SciChart
on the same machine and upgrade project by project
(Previously SciChart.Wpf.Dll was overwritten by a new version in
the output folder, causing FileLoadException)
In order to minimise namespace pain we strongly recommend using
the xmlns:s="http://schemas.abtsoftware.co.uk/scichart"
in your XAML files, then xml namespaces are no longer assembly f
ilename dependent.

New Features & Improvements
Aggressive performance tuning for FIFO series
o

FIFO Series AddRange, Max, Min performance has b

een improved 400%


o
FIFO Series re-sampling is now double buffered.
Reduced memory pressure on GC when using FIFOs
o
Knock on effect - Reduced or removed stuttering
when FIFO Series used
o
Knock on effect - Reduced or removed wobbling wh
en FIFO Series used
DataSeries.Append and Append(IEnumerable) performance improved with opti
mized min, max calculations
o
To get the most from DataSeries.Append, pass in
Arrays, not IEnumerable or Lists. Array access is much faster
and we use a host of optimizations to gain big s
peed improvements when loading array data
o
Knock on effect - Performance examples tuned to
be as fast, if not faster than v1.3
Performance tuning of ThemeManager. Changing or applying a first theme i
s much quicker
o

Knock on effect - reduces startup time for when

showing a SciChartSurface
Added clipping of dragged annotations - now clip to viewport bounds on d
rag
Added animation on zoom of the chart
o

RubberBandXyZoomModifier.IsAnimated = true by de

ZoomPanModifier.IsAnimated = true by default

fault

TimeAxis used
VerticalLineAnnotations placed incorrectly
VerticalLineAnnotation & HorizontalLineAnnotation Lines leap to primary
position after scrolling to boundaries
Licensing - when trial license expires, does not show "Your trial licens
e has expired" notice
Changing X1, Y1, X2, Y2 on annotation does not update annotaiton positio
n until redraw
FIFO Series not double-buffering correctly
Overview control malfunctioning when CategoryDateTimeAxis used
Overview control clicking outside the central area when CategoryDateTime
Axis can cause a crash
Overvew control wierd scrolling issues
Examples search box has xaml in dropdown results
Annotations cannot be dragged or drawn if one coordinate is outside the
viewport
Crash bug with Annotations X1,X2,Y1,Y2 set in Xaml when Russian Locale w
as used
Cannot drag an annotation correctly when CategoryDateTimeAxis is used
Drag Horizontal Threshold example (WPF) unhandled exception notice
Enabled dragging of TextAnnotations via one adorner point

eying AntiAliasing property causing blurry charts
-----------------------------------------------------------------------1.5.0.1604 20th Nov 2012: MAJOR BETA UPDATE
-----------------------------------------------------------------------New Features & Improvements
UIElement Annotations (BETA, Premium Edition)
Annotation can be added above, below the SciChartSurface either
programmatically or dynamically (via point & click). Annotations added include:
o
TextAnnotation
o
LineAnnotation, LineArrowAnnotation
o
HorizontaLineAnnotation, VerticalLineAnnotation
o
PathAnnotation

o
o

AxisMarkerAnnotation
BoxAnnotation

CategoryDateTimeAxis re-write (Premium Edition)


This axis can now support GrowBy, gaps to the right, consistent
zooming/panning when used in real-time stock charts.
OverviewControl re-write.
This control now supports DateTimeAxis, NumericAxis and Category
DateTimeAxis. Works in a real-time context.
MVVM Series API.
The property SciChartSurface.SeriesSource expects a collection o
f IChartSeriesViewModel. This allows you to synchronize DataSeries with Renderab
leSeries and control both via a parent ViewModel. No DataSeriesSet is needed, th
is is created automatically when you set-up the binding. It is recommended to us
e this API if you are dynamically adding/removing series, or changing series typ
e in an MVVM application.
New SciStockChart Control (BETA, Premium Edition)
A new control which subclasses SciChartSurface, automatically ad
ds modifiers & correct axis types for use in real-time stock charts.
Added SciChartGroup Control (BETA, Premium Edition)
A new control which enables multi-paned stock charts with tabbed
or stacked indicator panes.
Added FastBandRenderableSeries (Premium Edition)
A new series type which renders a shaded area between lines depe
nding on whether Y1>Y2 or vice versa.
CursorModifier Improvements
o
Added default styling to CursorModifier via the
Themes. Just drop it on a SciChartSurface and it works!
o
Added property CursorModifier.ShowCursorTooltipO
n. May be used to hide cursor tooltips unless the mouse is down.
o
Added CursorModifier.AxisLabels. By default curs
or modifier now displays labels on each axis. Labels may be hidden, or template.
Added PaletteProvider property to BaseRenderableSeries. Enables overridi
ng of data-point colors when rendering. E.g. color individual points, candles or
columns.
YAxisDragModifier may now be used when YAxis.AutoRange = true, by settin
g the ResizeMode=Relative/Absolute. In AbsoluteMode the YAxisDragModifier sets t
he VisibleRange of the axis, which is overwritten by AutoRange. In RelativeMode,
the modifier sets the GrowBy, causing a margin above/below the maximum of the c
hart and can be used in conjunction with AutoRange.
DataSeries API Refactor
Added IXyDataSeries<TX,TY>, IxyyDataSeries<TX,TY> and IohlcDataS
eries<TX,TY>.
Alpha Blending of MountainSeries, Column Charts. These series now alpha
blend so if you have a MountainSeries or ColumnSeries over a LineSeries the unde
rlying series show through.
Source code customers: SciChart is now a single csproj, no need to inclu

de Abt.Licensing and WriteableBitmapEx. In addition we have made a number of imp


rovements for source code customers, such as ability to strip out licensing and
deploy entirely safe code (No Unsafe) for use in partial trust environments such
as Bloomberg Terminal via conditional compilation pre-processor statements and
provided a VS2012 solution as well as VS2010.
Implemented 30-day Trial. SciChart s Terms & conditions are changing. The
trial duration will be 30-days and licensed per-machine. Of course, if you need
more time we d be happy to extend your trial! License keys have also changed. Cont
act us to upgrade your key from v1.3 to v1.5.
Bug Fixes
Fixed binding errors in CursorModifier and RolloverModifier, improving p
erformance of both cursors.
Fixed Logarithmic Y-Axis crash when switching from Linear to Logarithmic
mode and back.
Fixed memory leaks when themes are changed.
Fixed memory leaks when a SciChartSurface is loaded/unloaded.
Fixed axis/label flickering when SciChart is used under .NET4.5
Fixed Candles/OHLC bars too closely spaced in CategoryDateTimeAxis.
In WPF - Fixed MVVM binding silently failing to AxisCollection, Renderab
leSeries, VisibleRange when SciChartSurface is used inside an DataTemplate/ItemT
emplate. In Silverlight, these issues can be resolved via workaround. Contact us
if you experience them.
Fixed crash bug when zooming using RubberBandXyZoomModifier and YAxis.Fl
ipCoordinates=true is set.
Fixed axis ticks getting shifted if BorderThickness is used
Fixed DataSeriesSet.Insert not firing SeriesUpdated event
Fixed DateTimeAxis.MaxAutoTicks doesn t work
Fixed YAxis.AutoRange calculation when OHLC or Candlestick charts are us
ed. Now uses the high/low of candles not the close to compute VisibleRange.
Added exception message if AxisBase.AutoTicks=false but major, minor del
tas are not set
Fixed AxisBase.IsPrimaryAxis, now set correctly when multiple axes are u
sed. The primary axis draws gridlines others don t.
Fixed Column series rendering issues when series contains negative value
s.
Fixed a bug where SciChartSurface is empty when first dataseries is empt
y.
Fixed DataSeries.Clear crash (rare race condition) when updating the cha
rt in a separate thread.
