The RadChart User Interface

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RadChart has been replaced by RadHtmlChart, Telerik's client-side charting component.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.

To quickly set up your basic chart structure, RadChart can be accessed interactively using:

  • Smart Tag menu: Use the Smart Tag menu to quickly access the RadChart basics, i.e. title, series data, chart type, data binding, series palette, chart dimensions and image output type.

  • RadChart Wizard: Use the RadChart Wizard when you want to reduce the number of properties that need to be viewed, but where the Smart Tag does not allow enough control.The RadChart Wizard includes settings for chart Type, Data, Skin, Labels, Legend & Title, Axis and Values Data Table
