Hi Guys,

I need to display a chart containing multiple sets of data ranges but the output is rather spaced apart on the big chart area and not very readable.

Is there a way to enable scale breaks on the charts to remove gaps between the ranges and improve readability?

I'm looking for a feature similar to the built in .NET data visualization charting control.

It can be seen in action at following URL and looks quite useful feature.

Cheers!

Hi Cornel,

The Kendo UI Chart supports gap and spacing options out of the box. A demo is available here:

http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/bar-charts/gap-spacing

Please note that the gap option is supported when series.type is set to "bar", "column", "candlestick", "ohlc", "radarColumn" or "waterfall". Documentation for gap configuration:

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/dataviz/ui/chart#configuration-series.gap

Documentation and examples of spacing:

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/dataviz/ui/chart#configuration-series.spacing

Should you have any further questions, I will be glad to assist.

Kind Regards,
Alex

Hi Alex,

Thank you for the informative reply. 

The gap and spacing are nice configuration options but it is not what i'm looking for.

I'm interested for a feature similar to how the .NET charting work where on line series it applies "scale breaks" automatically to bring the series closer together and improve chart readability.

Please see the previous link for a visual example of what i'm trying to accomplish.

I would very much like to know if this feature is provided by kendo charting?

 

Cheers!

Hello Cornel,

The Kendo UI Chart does not offer out-of-the-box the possibility to apply scale breaks similar to those used in the SQL Server Report builder. However, you may consider to use a Multi-axis Bar chart, that could fit into your scenario.

Hi Veselin,

Thanks for the info will take a look at the multi-axis feature if it can fit our needs.

Would also be nice if kendo will provide the scale breaks feature out of the box in future updates.

Cheers!
