How can I set different marker types to each series in a Kendo UI Line Chart?

Solution

The following example demonstrates how to achieve this behavior.

    <div id="chart"></div>
    <script>
        var data = [{
        "date": "12/30/2011",
        "close": 405,
        "volume": 6414369,
        "open": 403.51,
        "high": 406.28,
        "low": 403.49,
        "symbol": "2. AAPL"
    },{
        "date": "11/30/2011",
        "close": 382.2,
        "volume": 14464710,
        "open": 381.29,
        "high": 382.276,
        "low": 378.3,
        "symbol": "2. AAPL"
    },{

        "open": 402.42,
        "high": 409.33,
        "low": 401.05,
        "symbol": "2. AAPL"
    },{

    },{
        "date": "12/30/2011",
        "close": 645.9,
        "volume": 1780941,
        "open": 642.02,
        "high": 646.76,
        "low": 642.02,

        "close": 599.39,
        "volume": 3390173,
        "open": 597.95,
        "high": 599.51,
        "low": 592.09,
        "symbol": "1. GOOG"

        "low": 591.67,
        "symbol": "1. GOOG"
    }];

    var stocksDataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
      data: data,
      group: {
        field: "symbol"
      },
      sort: {
        field: "date",
        dir: "asc"

      schema: {
        model: {

              type: "date"
            }
          }
        }
      }
    });

    $("#chart").kendoChart({
      title: { text: "Stock Prices" },
      dataSource: stocksDataSource,
      series: [{
        type: "line",
        field: "close",
        name: "#= group.value # (close)",
        markers: {
            visible: true
        }
      }],
      legend: {
        position: "bottom"
      },          
      categoryAxis: {

        labels: {
          format: "MMM"
        }
      },
      dataBound: onDB
    });

    function onDB(e) {
      var chart = e.sender,
          options = chart.options,
          series = options.series;

      series[0].markers.type = "triangle";
      series[1].markers.type = "cross";
      series[2].markers.type = "square";
    }
