    I have a RadChart and RadGrid populated with items. (The Datasources are different due to the returned data but they have the same DataKey values)

    How can I quickly allow the user to select any of the items on the Radchart and make that the SelectedRow for the RadGrid? (the items will share the same DataKey value) 

    I want them to be able to click the bar chart item and then have the corresponding record highlighted on the Radgrid below the chart.

    I tried attaching an event handler for the Click events which seems to create event behavior I would expect, but I am having trouble linking these two controls together in the manner I would like.  I believe there would be a quick clientside solution for this so I can simply get a reference to the RadGrid, find the row with a DataKey value that matches the one that it was called from, and make that the SelectedRow so it will be highlighted to the user.  Sounds good in theory but I am having trouble with implementation of such a scenario.

    Any help is appreciated

    Hello John,

    It is not possible to link the RadChart and RadGrid with out-of-the-box means. However, with some java script I think you will be able to do it. I have attached a simple project to demonstrate one approach you can use. Do examine it and see if you can adapt this to your current project.

    All the best,
