    For a standard chart, I just need to use the setOptions method

    curChart.setOptions({ theme: "black"});

    However, when I try this for a stock chart, I get a null reference error.  

    I looked at the documentation of the stock chart and it doesn't mention having the setOptions method.  

    Is it possible to change the theme?

    Hi Buddy,

    You are right - there is no a setOptions method for the StockChart. The only possible approach for changing the theme of Kendo UI StockChart at this point is to recreate the chart (as demonstrated in the online demos).

    Hi, Iliana!

    Are there any changes related to set different settings for series related to StockChart? I can change series (label, field and so on) via chart.options.series = newSeries and then refresh and redraw (or simply redraw), but I found that navigator series couldn't be changed the same way. Am I right? Now I have to recreate the chart but it is very inconvenient because I loose current view...

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm afraid the Stock Chart does not leave much room for changing settings on the fly. Our recommendation is to re-initialize the widget.
    You can keep a reference to the original options in order to reuse and extend them:
    var options = { .... };
    options.navigator.series[0] = { ... };

    I hope this helps.
