Hello,
I tryed to set the size of the chart through the parent div, but it seems that there is no result.. Size doesn't follow my values.
Is there a correct way to do that ?
Thanks in advance

Hello Thierry,

The size of the Chart can be set initially either in the configuration or by specifying the size on the parent element. For example:
$("#chart").kendoChart({
    chartArea: {
        width: 200,
        height: 200
    },
    ....
If you wish to change the size dynamically, you should also repaint the Chart by using the refresh or redraw methods after the change.


All the best,
Daniel

Thank you Daniel.
last week, i'd finally use the styles for the div, and it works. My precedent try was with the width and height attributes on the div, which are not valid for a div.. I learn ;-)
I will use your solution, this is more clean.

Found it.
It can be done with css styles.

    <style>
        .k-chart {
            height280px;
            width390px;
        }
    </style>

Is it possible to set the width of the chart as a %?

I'm trying to display three charts in a row to fill the screen no matter what size the window is. 

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Laura

Hello Laura,

It is possible to set the width in percentages on the parent or on the wrapper element but the Chart does not resize automatically. You could use the window resize event and redraw the charts using the redraw method.

Hi, when I use the chartarea to define the size of the box, the legend of the chart doesn't show fully (only half). Do you encounter the same issue? Thanks.

Hello Ming,

The entire legend will not be shown if the size set with the configuration is not sufficient. If the size is sufficient be the legend is incorrectly positioned when using the chartArea configuration then please provide a runnable sample so I can investigate further.
