Next major release of LightningChart® .NET will be equipped with brand new charting components, greatly simplifying the development process of trading applications. LightningChart Trader UI control will be included in all LightningChart .NET subscription packages without any additional cost (including Trader API source code). Full LightningChart .NET API is available under the hood for implementing custom functionality with the lightning-fast GPU-accelerated rendering.
