You can select the Bars not only by clicking on Chart Area but on Legend too. I suggest you to set LegendDisplayMode
property of the Legend to DataPointLabel as this will display an item for each DataPoint
in your series as described in our help topic
(Legend Display Modes). By clicking on specific LegendName you will have the Bar item selected.
All the best,
the Telerik team
