I currently use images generated via a DevExpress chart component for my reports. The reason for this is that historically I have not been happy with the look of the charts that have been generated. I have completed a Material Design reworking of my site and now want to get the charts to have a material design look and feel. The good thing here is that the material design is considerably more simple in appearance than the old look of charts that I had. Side benefit is that I will then only rely on Telerik controls and can ditch some more dlls!
So I want to use the Graph component that is built into the reporting. I have the following initial questions:
1) Is there any connection between the Graph, Kendo UI charts and ASP.NET charts? I'm interested as the examples shown on Kendo/ASP.Net have more detail so if they are related I'd know that functionality in one might be in the other.
2) Styles. I'm now using style sheets for reports and it would be nice to use them on the graphs. So for example I am using Calibri as my principle font on reporting and would like any titles, legends, data labels etc to use that. Is this possible?
3) Is it possible to have better legend placement for the pie chart - the existing one doesn't seem great when dealing with small data slices. I suppose that is the perpetual issue with pie charts though.
4) Could I request that some better demos/samples be made available. The docs are fairly basic with not much in the way of data relating to advanced customization of the charts.
