    We have a custom application that creates a Telerik RadHtmlChart object from an external DLL method.

    We also have a second custom application that uses MVC and Kendo components.

    I understand that both RadHtmlChart and Kendo charts are using the same underlying server-side wrapper from the Kendo UI chart widgets.

    My question is, how can I request that same external DLL using MVC/razor, and have it sent back to my view as a Kendo Chart? Is this possible?

    Hi Jason,

    I have already answered your support ticket in this matter, for convenience I am pasting my answer here as well:

    I am afraid that neither RadHtmlChart, nor any other control from the UI for ASP.NET AJAX suite are not supported in MVC setup as they rely on the web form server life-cycle :
    http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/mvc/overview

    Nevertheless, as RadHmtlChart is an ASP.NET AJAX server-side wrapper of the Kendo UI chart widgets, you can freely switch to the widget's MVC wrappers and use it in your application:
