This person has the same problem here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/26463613/kendo-ui-chart-not-using-whole-available-space-when-shown-if-created-hidden
An example of the problem here: http://codepen.io/albireo/pen/AeHui/?editors=101
An example of their 'hack' solution here: http://codepen.io/anon/pen/pJewrE
Using the 'hack' solution posted above my chart loads to full width. However, there is a flicker from it resizing, which doesn't look great. Now that you can better understand the problem, is there a solution that I can add which will work better than the one above?
