The migration between the chart components is not straightforward due to the different approach used in the development of the RadChartView. My recommendation is to take some time to explore the demos
and the documentation
of the RadChartView suite. You can also take a look at the SDK examples
for the new chart. This will help you in understanding how the new chart can be defined and used.
However, if you have any struggles with the migration we will be glad to assist you with it.
As for your last question, yes, The RadChart will be around for some time, but keep in mind that it is in maintenance mode, which means that we no longer provide bug fixes and features for it.
