    This may have been requested somewhere, but I couldn't find it in my searching.

    I have a lot of things being displayed and my chart gets REALLY tiny - which isn't very good for knowing what things are. Right now I have to kill the legend. It's on my TODO list to create a sliding legend in a div that I attach to the chart's div so it can be shown/hide and not make my chart tiny. Would it be something that could be implemented in the chart itself? Creating a sliding div? Even if it rendered a separate image for the legend and placed it in the sliding div - Don't really care how, hehe. :)

    I just have to many pieces of data with non-reducible length of text that can take up over 1/2 of my chart space, and i have it maximized on a 22" screen.

    A suggestions for a potentially useful feature, that I'm gonna have to implement myself so I can display a chart at a reasonable size for what I have to display. :)

    Hello Baatezu,

    Unfortunately, such functionality is not present in the current version of the control and it is not in our development plans also. You could try to to implement it by yourself but please, be aware that you can not have a chart legend as a separate control outside of RadChart. That means that you will need to maintain two RadChart controls - one should only show the plot area and the other showing only a legend.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team

    Since I'm processing the data before adding it to the chart series, I'm thinking I'll just toss the information into a sliding div [or such] and have it attached next to the chart div.

    UPDATE: I decided to just toss a RadGrid with the series/color information along side the chart. Looks pretty nice.
