SfChart Not Displaying

I'm trying to add SfChart to my Xamarin.Forms project by following the example here

I installed SfChart through the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio 2015 and then added PCL, iOS and Android references as shown in the example

My xaml file resembles the following:
<ContentPage xmlns="http://xamarin.com/schemas/2014/forms"
    <StackLayout ...>
        <chart:ChartTitle Text="Weather Analysis" />
                 <chart:ChartAxisTitle Text="Month"/>
                <chart:ChartAxisTitle Text="Month"/>
        <chart:ColumnSeries ItemsSource = "{Binding HighTemperature}"/>

My xaml.cs file resembles the follwing:

using Xamarin.Forms;
namespace Test
  public partial class Page : ContentPage
    public Page()

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

I've added to the iOS AppDelegate.cs and Android MainActivity.cs file:

new SfChartRenderer();

I've created a DataSource model:

namespace Test.Models


  public class DataModel


      public ObservableCollection<ChartDataPoint>  HighTemperature { get; set; }


      public DataModel ()


           HighTemperature = new ObservableCollection<ChartDataPoint> ();

           HighTemperature.Add (new ChartDataPoint ("Jan", 42));

           HighTemperature.Add (new ChartDataPoint ("Feb", 44));

           HighTemperature.Add (new ChartDataPoint ("Mar", 53));

           HighTemperature.Add (new ChartDataPoint ("Apr", 64));

           HighTemperature.Add (new ChartDataPoint ("May", 75));

           HighTemperature.Add (new ChartDataPoint ("Jun", 83));

           HighTemperature.Add (new ChartDataPoint ("Jul", 87));

           HighTemperature.Add (new ChartDataPoint ("Aug", 84));

           HighTemperature.Add (new ChartDataPoint ("Sep", 78));

           HighTemperature.Add (new ChartDataPoint ("Oct", 67));

           HighTemperature.Add (new ChartDataPoint ("Nov", 55));

           HighTemperature.Add (new ChartDataPoint ("Dec", 45));




The application builds and deploys properly and all pages display properly - there is just now chart shown. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

This is very helpful. I am new to Xamarin so teaching myself how to work with charts.

In the above sample, I am not able to find ChartDataPoint. Can you please point me to the right direction?

am trying to add dummy data into my app...but I get this error "Unhandled Exception:

System.MissingMethodException: Default constructor not found for type Com.Syncfusion.Charts.SfChart".

Gone through the guidelines/documentation a couple of times, and cant find any reference to a constructor.
