    Hi Jedf,

    Thank you for writing.

    A possible reason for the missing control in the Toolbox is if your project's Target Framework refers to a Client Profile of the .NET Framework. Please change it to a full profile in order to show it in the toolbox. See attached image.

    I hope that you find this information useful. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Kind regards
    Stefan

    Q2’11 SP1 of RadControls for WinForms is available for download (see what's new); also available is the Q3'11 Roadmap for Telerik Windows Forms controls.

    I'm using the Telerik UI for WinForms Q2 2014.  I cannot find the old (obsolete) Chart control, which may temporarily hold me over until missing Marked Zones functionality in ChartView is completed.

    http://www.telerik.com/forums/marked-zone-chart

    Attempting to use the RadChart.dll from the Telerik .bin directory fails.  If I change my project to use .NET Framework 2.0, it doesn't work either. 

    Is there any way to get the obsolete tool, while waiting for the newer, better tool to include the same options?
    (Trying to use it in VS 2010, .NET 4.0, confirmed non-client profile.)

    Hello Peter,

    RadChart is no longer available in the toolbox, however its implementation is still in the suite and you will have to create its instance programmatically. Attached you can find a video demonstrating how to do that.

    If you need the component in the toolbox, you can derive from it and set the [ToolboxItem(true)] attribute of the derivative, as demonstrated here: http://www.telerik.com/forums/where-is-radchart-in-vs2010-toolbox#zBKwjvs2oUqfpWilakVrpw.

    Here you can add your vote for the marked zones feature of RadChartView: http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/154/Feedback/Details/110427-add-radchartview-add-marked-zones.

    I hope this helps.

    Regards,

    I just hate that you pulled this prior to updating any of your reporting resource which all still refer to this, but look for graph wizard or working with reports from graph wizard, or reporting in general inside visual studio 2013 and there is really nothing.

    Hello Regina,

    Telerik Reporting Chart item is obsolete and would not be maintained in future releases.

    Our recommendation is to switch to the Graph item introduced as of Telerik Reporting Q1 2013. Its design-time support is greater than the Chart item's one and allows you to use expressions to set labels, data points' values, conditional styling rules. Also there are new features as interactivity introduced as of Telerik Reporting Q2 2013 SP1.

    For more details check the articles in the Formatting a Graph help section.
    To start with the Graph item you can use the Graph Wizard or the tutorials under the Chart Types section.


    If you need further help, feel free to open a support ticket and provide details about the used product, version, control/component and the experienced problem.

    Regards,

    Yes I understand Telerik Reporting Chart item is obsolete and would not be maintained in future releases.  My complaint is that the resources for the new components are behind the release of the tools.  The links you provide are only marginally helpful at best.

    I ended up using the standard MS Chart tool that was a separate free download but is now included as of VS 2012.

    There's a lot of info on the web for how to use the PrePaint method to create bands, but honestly I just needed 5 evenly divided regions.  It was so simple to do with a background image and setting the chart region to use a background and stretch it as needed.  Absolutely perfect.

    I'm guessing Microsoft's purchase of a top selling charting tool and embedding it into VS is part of the reason Telerik began to view further development of ChartView as a lower return on investment.

    Hello,

    The old Chart item of Telerik Reporting was borrowed from the RadChart of Telerik Ui for ASP.NET AJAX, and had features not coherent with the designed reports rendering. Thus in Q1 2013 we decided to provide a native reporting item - the Graph item, which provides proper design-time support, and allows the usage of expressions and actions, conditional formatting and other features common for reporting items.

    @Regina: The articles cover the main features of the Graph item, and includes tutorials for getting started with the item. Using the Graph Wizard at the beginning is recommended. Thus you can get acquainted with the item's structure and how data is supplied.
    If you are searching for a specific feature, feel free to open a support ticket for Telerik Reporting and send us more details about the experienced issues.

    Regards,
    Stef
