Point Charts

caution

RadChart has been replaced by RadHtmlChart, Telerik's client-side charting component. If you are considering RadChart for new development, examine the RadHtmlChart documentation and online demos first to see if it will fit your development needs. If you are already using RadChart in your projects, you can migrate to RadHtmlChart by following these articles: Migrating Series, Migrating Axes, Migrating Date Axes, Migrating Databinding, Features parity. Support for RadChart is discontinued as of Q3 2014, but the control will remain in the assembly so it can still be used. We encourage you to use RadHtmlChart for new development.

Point or "Scatter" charts are used to show correlations between two sets of values.The point chart lets you observe the dependence of one value to another and is often used for scientific data modeling. The Point chart is typically not used used with time dependent data where a Line chart is more suited.

To change the display of any given point use the chart item's PointAppearance property. Here you can change the Dimensions property to control Height, Width, Margins Paddings. The Figure property lets you choose from a set of predefined shapes other than the default Ellipse shape (e.g. Cross, Diamond, Circle, Rectangle, Triangle and several different Star marker shapes).

To create a Vertical Point Chart set the SeriesOrientation property to Vertical. Set the RadChart DefaultType property or ChartSeries.Type to Point. Add one or more chart series to the Series collection. Add one or more chart items to the seriesItems collection. Populate numeric values forXValue and YValue properties of each chart series item.
