    I have a series consisting of an x-axis being DateTime and the Y-axis a numeric value. The datapoints are ranges and have a start and end date. Sometimes they have null values for the Y-axis, but still get an X-axis. I have attached a crude mockup of what I am trying to acheive.

    The step-line chart comes the closest, but wondering if there was a chart type in the Telerik suite that could explicitly deal with ranges or if I am just thinking about this all wrong.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you require to use the RadChartView control, you are right that the StepLine series is the closest series that can be used. Unfortunately, we have not implemented series that looks exactly like you require.

    However, if you are willing to use another control - I suggest taking a look at our RadTmeline control. It visualizes items with specified start date and duration. I think that it would fit your scenario.

    Please feel free to ask if you need any further assistance.
