    When I set the width and height of radchart to 0.

    I am doing this because I am trying to find a way to make the chart invisible, and yet render correctly when I make it visible.
    The 'no data' message facilities are not sufficient.

    Hello Matthew,

    Please don't set the width and height to zero. What you should do is hide the chart image using CSS and javascript. Let us know if you need assistance with that too.

    All the best,

    If we are not supposed to set the width and height to zero, why let us do it?
    Surely you should throw an exception if we are setting properties to values which are invalid?

    It of course begs the question what else might I be doing wrong which is illegal, but which the control is just absorbing and either ignoring or quietly going wrong inside.

    OK, thanks for your offer. What I want to do is...

    Inside the OnPreRender of the control hosting the chart I discover that, for whatever reason, I don't want to display the chart. Instead I wish to display some informative message. Ideally, along with this informative message should be some button which can cause a postback to invoke some server-side code.

    The above might be sufficient, but there's a more sophisticated version I need later...

    The chart-hosting control is in fact loaded on demand inside another control. (In fact, I use an asp:Placeholder control and load my control into that). Different chart-hosting controls are loaded accordig to user options. These are mostly very similar. Thus I would like the 'informative message' text to be switched in and out by the control that has loaded the chart-hosting control

    thanks

    Hello Matthew,

    Indeed a loader control does indeed sound like a good idea. If for some reason you do not want to show data in RadChart you can choose not to load RadChart in your loader control and instead load your informative message control which can tell the user what to do in order to load the chart. 

    Greetings,
