    from js and mvc extensions.

    Documentation is not as deep as the older controls

    With KendoUI chart I believe there is no $('#chart').rebind(params) like the old MVC controls you have to create a javascript function that creates the chart (without using MVC extensions, pure kendo ui jquery)


    at the chart dataSOurce the url points to a controller action, but on data you can add params and read from UI components to get the values, they are passed to your controller

    You call this function again over and over everytime you want to refresh the chart with new data with different

    Let's say you have a date picker with a selected date, and a button to Refresh Chart, then inside:

    dataSource => transport => read, you add a data property that reads the current value from the date picker or any field (one or more fields), they are passed to the controller action in the same order

    function createChart() {            
                       theme: $(document).data("kendoSkin") || "default",
                       title: {
                           text: "My Cool Bubble Chart"
                       legend: {
                           visible: true,
                           position: "bottom"
                       dataSource: {
                           transport: {
                               read: {
                                   url: "@Url.Content("~/Controller/ActionName")",
                                   dataType: "json",
                                   data: { // This are the parameters
                                       date: function() {
                                           return $('#date').val();
                           group: {
                               field: "GroupField"
                       series: [{
                           type: "bubble",
                           xField: "MyXField",                        
                           yField: "MyYField",
                           sizeField: "MySizeField",
                           categoryField: "MyCategoryField"
                       seriesColors: ['orange','dodgerblue','green','red', 'yellow', 'silver', 'cyan', 'magenta'],
                       xAxis: {
                           title: {
                               text: "My X data"
                           labels: {
                               format: "{0:N0}",
                               skip: 1,
                               rotation: 90
                           axisCrossingValue: -10000,
                           //majorUnit: 500,
                           plotBands: [{
                               from: -5000,
                               to: 0,
                               color: "#00f",
                               opacity: 0.05
                       yAxis: {
                       title: {
                               text: "My X data"
                           labels: {
                               format: "{0:N0}"
                           line: {
                               width: 0
                       tooltip: {
                           visible: true,
                           opacity: 1,
                           template: "Data: #= category # (Other: #= dataItem.OtherData #): #= kendo.toString(value.size, 'N0') # clicks"
                       transitions: true
