I'm new to the Telerik suite and this control is my first real exposure. I hope the other controls are better implemented than this one.
I have just spent 3 days getting tasks to appear with different background colours. Am I missing something? I can't believe the hoops I've had to jump through to achieve this (custom task objects, custom task factories, custom task providers, client templates and I still had to finish it off with a jquery hack!). Surely the basic appearance of a task item on the chart should be as simple as setting a few properties server side e.g. "task.BackColor=..." etc?
No basic formatting, no basic client-side events such as chart_onload, item_selected, item_double_click.
The documentation is less than helpful and all the examples I've looked at seem to assume I'm using windows entity framework (I'm not.)
Are there plans to make this chart more customisable in a future release?
If anyone found a more straightforward way to achieve this basic functionality I would be extremely grateful if they could share what they did.
