    I am trying to configure a VerticalBoxPlot using the Kendo asp.net MVC in the following ways

     

    1. Display just the outline for the box plot without any fill as shown in the image.

    2. Display the median in a color other than white.

     

    Are these 2 things customizable at all? I would really appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction either using asp.net MVC or even using Javascript.

    Hello, Sumanth,

    Thank you for the visual representation of the desired result.

    Currently, only the color of the median, the mean and the series can be changed:

    I can suggest submitting a feature request listing all of the parts that have to be modified in the VerticalBoxPlot, then based on its popularity we may implement them in a future release:

    Thank you Stefan for responding. I think the ideal would be to be able to set the border color for each of the boxes either using a bordercolorfield or using an array of colors that can be applied for the borders.

    Stefan,

    I am actually using Kendo Asp.net mvc fluent api. And I don't see any properties or methods to set the color of the median. Could you please help on how to do this in the fluent API.

    Thanks, Sumanth

    Hello, Sumanth,

    My name is Alex and I am taking over from my colleague in his absence.

    The required series border colours can be achieved with the Kendo UI BoxPlot Chart out of the box by setting the Series border colour:

    http://docs.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/api/Kendo.Mvc.UI.Fluent/ChartBoxPlotSeriesBuilder#methods-Border(System.Int32,System.String,Kendo.Mvc.UI.ChartDashType)

    (runnable Dojo on preview)
    http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/dataviz/ui/chart#configuration-series.border

    Unfortunately, my tests show that this is currently not possible for the Kendo UI BoxPlot Chart in particular due to an issue on our part. I have logged this issue and you may follow its progress at:

    https://github.com/telerik/kendo-ui-core/issues/3641

    Please accept our apology for any inconvenience this may have caused. I am afraid that I do not have a workaround for the moment so choosing another chart is probably better while we fix this issue.

    Kind Regards,
