    I just noticed that my 3D chart maintains it's aspect ratio when I resize it's container.  I would like to be able to create a 3D column chart that is very wide relative to it's height (The 2D chart does this automatically).  I can't seem to do this because the chart won't "stretch" horizontally.  I have looked for an appropriately named property & searched the forums to no avail.  Am I missing something or is it not possible to change the aspect ratio of a 3D chart?
    Thanks - Mitch

    Thank you for the confirmation. Unfortunately, that means that we will need to purchase an additional 3rd party charting library. I did our evaluation of these controls & honestly I completely missed this. However, I also don't recall any place in the documentation that discusses differences in functionality between the 2D and 3D charts (RadChart obviously & not RadChartView).  Another example of where this bit me was that you can merrily add an additional Y axis to a chart, but it won't work with 3D series. Is there, perhaps, documentation like this somewhere & I just did not see it?  Thanks - Mitch

    Hello Mitchell,

    First I want to thank you for your feedback and apologize that we didn't fulfill your requirements. Since we introduced the chartview control most of the development effort goes into it so that we can meet the feature rich RadChart control. To this moment we have implemented most of the features of RadChart, but there are several more features left for implementation. One of these is 3D series. We are currently gathering customer feedback about this feature, so your feedback is very welcome. This feature is logged in our feedback portal here. You can vote for it there, comment it with your specific needs and also follow its progress.

    Once again, please excuse us for the caused inconvenience.
