    RadChart for WinForms is obsolete. Now what?
    As a part of the Telerik RadControls toolbox, RadChart for WinForms is a cool component to use, no doubt. However, at the time it was developed, not all functional and visual trends in the UI components in the years to come were foreseen and taken into consideration. Due to user demand for a high-performing feature-rich charting solution, we decided that it is time to redesign this control so that it can deliver on the latest UX and development requirements and leave room for further improvements to come thanks to its flexible architecture.
