    Hi,

    We have a requirement for a financial chart that shows positive and negative trends as a bar chart that's laid out on either direction of a 0 y-axis point, and a spline curve to be overlaid on the barchart. The Q2 version of the Silverlight Chart did not support a negative Y-axis scale for the barcharts. We ended up using a Candlestick chart to depict the positive and negative bars after tweaking the close/open points to get the desired effect. This worked but we could not add a spline curve with a regular y-axis dataseries values to this chart. My questions are,

    1. Is a negative bar chart supported in the Q3 release? Someone from Telerik had mentioned that this would be available in the Q3 release.
    2. If not, will the multiple y-axis support in the new version allow us to combine a spline curve to the candle stick chart that we currently have?
    3. Do you have an official release date for the Q3 version?

    Thanks,
    Prakash

    Hello Prakash,

    I am very pleased to confirm that out developers are going to keep their promise and with the upcoming Q3 release the RadChart control will support both negative data and multiple Y axes.  The latter is present even in the beta 2  which is available for download. Here you can find some preliminary information about the multiple Y axis feature.

    The Q3 release is expected to launch in the early November.

    Sincerely,
    Velin
