    i'm wondering if i can accomplish this using CartesianChart since i didnt see any of the series provided that can end up drawing a "shape chart" ??

    Thanks for you help

    Hello Oueslati,

    RadChartView is not the proper control you should use for such scenarios. It renders different types of series by providing a collection of DataPoints. It seems to me that you need a control that renders a closed contour shapes. I highly recommend our RadDiagram control for the purpose. It supports various types of predefined Shape Geometries (as described here) but also supports creating custom ones. What you'll need to do is inherit the RadDiagramShape class and apply your custom PathGeometry to its Geometry property (you might find this documentation topic helpful). 

    If you are new to the RadDiagram please refer to our documentation and online demos with source code provided that will help you to get to know the control and its features:

    I hope this information helps.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your answer,

    I saw the RadDiagram capabilities and I already thought about using this control coz it offers the zoom out of the box but the concern is that I also have axes with scale in my control (zoomable) and I haven't found such control to built a composite one.

    Does Telerik have Axis Control standalone ?

    Regards,
    Thanks

    Hi,

    Yes, we provide standalone Axis control - the RadHorizontalDataAxis and RadVerticalDataAxis which reside in Telerik.Windows.Controls.DataVisualization assembly. Its major properties are described in our documentation. Please mind that it does not support zooming scenarios, rather it is suitable for presenting manual range and step.
    Another thing you might choose to use is to customize the Rulers of Diagram to achieve the desired look. You might find this help topic useful for the purpose. As you will see Diagram Rulers change their values with zooming in and out.
