    is there any way to access the radchart who invoked the method???
    i only can access to the bar. whne i debug i can see that the bar has a private variable "parent" that references to the RadChart.
    but the public property "Parent" is null.

    Hello dennis,

    You can get access to the chart parent by walking the visual tree of the control like this:

    using System.Windows; 
    using System.Windows.Controls; 
    using System.Windows.Media; 
    using Telerik.Windows.Controls; 
    using Telerik.Windows.Controls.Charting; 
    namespace SilverlightApplication2 
        public partial class Page : UserControl 
            public Page() 
                DataSeries series = new DataSeries() { new DataPoint(1,10), new DataPoint(2,20), new DataPoint(3, 30) }; 
                RadChart1.DefaultView.ChartArea.ChartItemClick += ChartArea_ChartItemClick; 
            private void ChartArea_ChartItemClick(object sender, ChartItemClickEventArgs e) 
                RadChart chart = GetVisualParent<RadChart>(e.OriginalSource as DependencyObject); 
            private static TParent GetVisualParent<TParent>(DependencyObject dependencyObject) where TParent : DependencyObject 
                DependencyObject parent = null
                if (dependencyObject != null
                    parent = VisualTreeHelper.GetParent(dependencyObject); 
                while ((parent != null) && !(parent is TParent)) 
                    parent = VisualTreeHelper.GetParent(parent); 
                return (TParent)parent; 

    We will also consider exposing the chart parent in a more straightforward manner for the future releases of the control.
