    Hi.  I just need something to get me started.

    Please see the attachment for a picture of the data from an SQL data source, and the simple chart I'm trying to build. 

    What goes inside the <telerik:RadHtmlChart /> to bind the fields and achieve the basic format shown?

    I can repackage the data somewhat to make binding easier if that's needed.

    Can you help?

    Hello Scott,

    In order to bind the RadHtmlChart control you must reference each series to a data source field. You can find example in the Data Binding section of the online demo.

    If you want, however, to group the data source you must manually do that. Such an example is illustrated in this CL.

    Hi Danail, thank you for your rapid reply. 

    I need some time to digest that grouping function - it looks weird to me.

    Why wouldn't you do the grouping in SQL?  That's exactly what I do to make wiring up the charts very straightforward.  SQL is made to do grouping, don't try to reinvent it.
