“The excellent out of the box functionality of LightningChart in combination with great UWP support helped me to quickly develop a platform independent user interface for GRBL CNC machining.

LightningChart enabled me to implement real-time 3D (15Hz) visualization of machine movement and GCODE geometries with over 100.000 data points on a standard Windows PC.

The LightningChart team provides very good technical support and made a fantastic job with the development of the LightningChart UWP library. Thank you!”

“We needed a graphic library dedicated to our real time data measurements that was performant enough to cope with the functioning speeds of our systems and with the high quantity of data involved.
In that aspect, LightningChart fulfils its duty perfectly.”

“We are very satisfied with LightningChart’s performance. Despite its lightning-fast speed, we are amazed by the high quality of charts produced. What is worth to mention is their technical support: very responsive, fast and patient. The whole team has high professional knowledge and skills, which is why I am glad about the decision of choosing LightningChart.”

“A few years ago, we developed our own chart control for our NVH project because we couldn’t find a suitable chart library on the market. During that period, we faced a lot of problems such as a lack of time and energy to proceed with the development. The final charts were slow in rendering data and couldn’t utilize CPU and memory resources efficiently.

We are so lucky that we found LightningChart last year! Now our project implementation goes very smoothly with LightningChart which can present massive data while demonstrating high performance. LightningChart’s excellent customer service, especially Chinese support service, helped us solve all the technical problems in time. We are very thankful for LightningChart’s product and its support service, as our NVH system can be successfully completed.”

“My project was looking to retire our ‘in house’ graphing package, and look for a 3rd party product to use instead. After weeks of research, no one came close to LightningChart’s graphing package. Its speed and feature set where unparalleled of the almost 12 packages I tried. I’ve been developing with them for two years now, and they have a great support forum, and address emails immediately. I recommend them, its a great product.”

“I’ve produced very impressive windows forms applications and this tool provides a wide variety of 2D and 3D charting alternatives. I’ve also found the examples very useful and the support with the product has been outstanding.”

Review from Visual Studio Marketplace, June 2011

“We use LightningChart in a C#/WPF environment. Mainly XY, Polar, and 3d views.

Our charting requirements can sometimes be very data intense. We benchmarked LightningChart and other 3rd party charting libraries. LightningChart stood well above the other solutions in performance. And it is not just that it was the clear winner in speed. But some other popular 3rd party solutions could not even finish the tests. They could not handle the extreme load we were throwing at the charts.

Having the combination of high-performance, as well as the ability to style the look and feel of the charts makes for an awesome impact. We enjoy hearing that “wow” or watching the eyebrows go up when people first see some of the data visualizations our app can produce with LightningChart.

And the support is good too. If you have been around for a while, you probably have memories of painful support experiences. You know, the kind that makes you cringe when you realize you have to reach out to “them” again. But with LightningChart, our questions/issues have always been responded to in a friendly and helpful way.

LightningChart is a great product. And the bonus is, a customer-oriented, working-friendly kind of a company backing up their product. Wow 🙂

Highly recommended. Five stars!”

“We’ve been using the WPF version of LightningChart for several years now, and we have never regretted this choice. We use it to visualize sound and vibration data in both 2D and 3D. The chart control is packed with features. It’s extremely fast, but also robust, very flexible and highly customizable. The product comes with a huge set of samples with source code, so getting started is easy. Good support is essential when buying a third party component, and the support given by LightningChart has really been outstanding. I will strongly recommend anyone looking for an advanced chart control to have a look at LightningChart!”

“My project requires 240 XY graphs, and on each chart at least 144000 points needs to be saved. In the beginning I had some speed issues in the developing project, since other software products I tested couldn’t provide such big data rendering. LightningChart was exactly what I needed. When I was still evaluating LC, I found out that it didn’t get stuck at all even when reading such huge amount of data. GPU acceleration is brilliant!

I think the biggest advantage of LightningChart is the core technology, billions of points can run smoothly: this is the reason why I chose LightningChart. I was so disappointed to those other products, since their rendering speed didn’t meet my expectation when displaying hundreds of data.

In my project I have mainly used XY features, and in the near future hoping to have a chance to also try LightningChart’s 3D features.”

By Qinglei Zhao, Development Manager in Jilin Yuandian technology co., Ltd

“After the evaluation of different open source and commercial charting libraries for WPF, LightningChart was the only one truly GPU accelerated, optimized for real-time rendering. All the other charts evaluated use CPU for rendering, which performance can’t compete with GPU accelerated LightningChart and meet the complex business requirements.

For rendering performance, LightningChart is far ahead of all WPF chart controls with tests I made. Even though presenting 1 billion data points real-time, the charts present so easily, very smoothly without flickering or delays.

Because it uses GPU for rendering, my computer’s CPU is left almost idle for other tasks. I don’t need to do any extra work to compensate for deficiencies of the control such as the graphics rendering efficiency. This greatly reduces the difficulty of the implementation and highly improves the speed of the program.

I have to say again that its performance maybe can seckill of all WPF chart controls in the world”

“We utilize WPF as our UI framework to improve the developers’ efficiency. We used other solution which was opensource, but there was some problem in the process of the project, for example, the performance was quite poor, that library didn’t support reverse coordinate and so on. After that, we tried LightningChart and one of its alternatives on the market. We discovered that only LightningChart provides the Logarithmic coordinates, reverse coordinate, and other features which we desired. Also, LightningChart can represent billion of data points at the same time. Therefore, we decided to purchase LightningChart”
