    I have two datepickers in my view and an Area Chart with a "date" type category axis with a selection. I want the user to be able to change the selection both directly in the chart and by using the datePickers. When the user changes the date interval in either of the controls, the other control must be updated to reflect the new selection interval.
    I managed to update the datepickers when I change the selection in the chart, but I can't figure out how to update the selection when the user changes the datePickers date.
    I tried the answers in this thread but they just seem to apply to "kendoStockChart" and not to "kendoChart".

    The closest I got to this was with this code:

    var widget = $("#rangeSelectChart").data("kendoChart");
    widget._selections[0].set(new Date("2014/11/05"), new Date("2014/11/15"));

    but it does no changes the actual selection, it creates a NEW selection with the given date interval.

    Hi Henrique,

    You can dynamically change the chart selection using the setOptions method. As an example: 
    var widget = $("#chart").data("kendoChart");
    widget.setOptions({categoryAxis: {select: { from: new Date("2014/11/05"), to: new Date("2014/11/15")}}});

    Thanks! I have tried to set the selection using setOptions but it didn't work. For those stuck with this same problem, you must call the reload method after setting the selection to reflect the changes.
