Hello,

Could you please advise me on the best way to use databinding with RadChart when I have a dynamic number of series to plot?  I have a custom object 'ChartSeriesCollection' which contains a number of 'ChartSeries' objects representing the series for the chart.  Each ChartSeries contains a collection of custom 'ChartItem' objects.  Each ChartItem has an X and Y value property.

How can I databind a structure such as this to dynamically create the series and their individual points?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Jonathan,

I am afraid this scenario is not directly supported by RadChart. You can create the chart series and items manually by looping through the series and items and creating the corresponding objects in RadChart.

foreach (MyChartSeries mySer in MyChartSeriesCollection) 
        { 
            ChartSeries ser = new ChartSeries(); 
            RadChart1.Series.Add(ser); 
            foreach (MyChartItem myItem in mySer.Items) 
            { 
                ChartSeriesItem item = new ChartSeriesItem(); 
                item.XValue = myItem.XValue; 
                item.YValue = myItem.YValue; 
                ser.Items.Add(item); 
            } 
        }
