How can I set the size of the default drawing element of the Chart bars to the same size?


The following example demonstrates how to use the series.visual function to scale the default drawing element of the bars and achieve this behavior.

    <div id="chart"></div>
      var BAR_SIZE = 10;
        series: [{
          type: "bar",
          data: [1, 2],
          visual: function(e) {
            //create the default visual
            var visual = e.createVisual();
            //scale it so that it has the predefined size
            visual.transform(kendo.geometry.transform().scale(1, BAR_SIZE / e.rect.size.height, ));
            return visual;
