    I see the Ajax version of Radchart support seriesorientation = horizontal. Is Telerik Silverlight RadChart support set the chart area seriesorientation to horizontal or anytime soon?


    Thank you,

    Hi Ming,

    RadChart for Silverlight does not support the concept of series orientation as the ASP.NET control does and currently we have no concrete plans for its implementation -- instead it supports "horizontal" series types as first-class citizens on the SeriesDefinition level i.e. you can use HorizontalBar / HorizontalStackedBar / HorizontalStackedBar100 by choosing HorizontalSeriesDefinition / HorizontalStackedBarSeriesDefinition / HorizontalStackedBar100SeriesDefinition.

    Hope this helps.


    Best wishes,

    Hi Freddie,

    I was actually try to use the SeriesOrientation = Horizontal to archive the Scatter/Point with Logarithum on  x-axis. right now RadChart support Logarithum on Y-axis however not x-axis, so I try to see if I can just set the SeriesOrientation to Horizontal to archive the result.


    Thank you.

    Hello Ming,

    Indeed currently this scenario is not possible as AxisX does not support logarithmic mode. However, we have already logged this feature request in our public issue tracking system and it will be considered for one of the next versions of the control (you can vote for it here in order to increase its priority).

    Hi Andre,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately this feature is still not available in the current version of the chart control. I will forward your inquiry to our devteam but it is unlikely that we will be able to add this to the current product backlog for the Q2 2011 release that is already under way.


    Kind regards,

    Hi Giuseppe,

    That's so sad...
    I took a look at the source code and I could easily do it by myself extending the AxisX class.
    BUT I can't. The framework has so many internal classes and methods that it's almost impossible to do something more elaborated.
    In this case my problem is the AxisRange class (internal) and many internal or private methods in Axis and AxisX classes.

    Please, if you can send a message to the development team, tell them this:

    Ban the "internal" keyword from your source code. Also, make as many as possible virtual protected methods instead of private ones. Telerik is a framework for it's customers to use and extend to fit their needs. It's an AWESOME framework by the way and it would be much better if anyone could contribute and extend it's functionalities.

    Cheers,

    Hello Andre,

    I can see your reasoning (I have also wanted to extend the Telerik Framework sometimes and got stuck) but I see Telerik reasoning as well. Designing classes to be extensible isn't trivial, and inheritance isn't the single principle of OOP so sealed/internal preserves the developers intentions and makes their life easier. It allows the developer to control how the class is used, and allows them to make internal changes without worrying about breaking changes to code in the wild.

    By any means if you have access to the source code, you can still to hack your way through ;).


    Greetings,
    Bart.
