The approaching Q1 2009 release has a lot to offer to all Silverlight fans, as we are adding one more major control to the suite – RadChart for Silverlight. The control comes with 18 predefined chart types that transform various business scenarios into interactive, rich, animated charts.

Built natively for Silverlight, the chart control has a rich and flexible API and can be bound to various data services. With its interactivity and animations, Telerik Silverlight Chart leverages the capabilities of the Silverlight platform and allows you to create rich visualizations of business data.

The control comes with several predefined skins, but you are not limited to using only those. Telerik Silverlight Chart is completely customizable and gives you freedom to style its appearance in any way you want.

RadChart for Silverlight shares the same look and behavior with RadChart for WPF. This comes as a result of the common codebase and shared API of the Telerik Silverlight and WPF suites.

To further push the boundaries of rich data visualization, Telerik Silverlight 3D charts are on their way. We are working on our custom built 3D engine which will first be implemented in RadChart for Silverlight with the Q2 2009 release.

More details on RadChart for Silverlight and the other new controls in the suite are coming shortly with the Telerik Q1 2009 release.
