I have a RadChart that I am rendering on page load. At regular intervals (5-10 seconds for example), I want to "refresh" the data contents of the chart. I am currently using a RadAjaxManager instance, and am using ajaxManager.ajaxRequest to initiate the callback request.
This works fine, but has one very visual drawback... the chart basically "blinks" during every refresh. (I can add a loading panel, but this in and of itself doesn't work very well for items that are constantly being refreshed at regular intervals).
Does anyone know of a way to prevent this? (The grid control for example does not "flash" or "blink" upon a rad ajax postback). Is there a way to "trick it by having two charts and only making the refreshed one visible after the callback is finished / basically swapping them in and out (pretty hacky, I know, but I have a lot of time invested in making this chart work!!!).
Thanks in advance!
