I know this should be simple, but I am trying to build a demo of your piechart control and I'm having difficulty with your example...In your "First Look", you use a "Chart Area", but in VS, when I drag a "chart" over from the toolbox, I get a "RadChart"...It does not have a radchart.DataSeries like your FirstLook has...Basically, I want to get a list of "SalesData" objects back from my service.  Simple Entity...SalesData.Category(string) and SalesData.Amount(double)...Then take this list and bind it to the piechart and have the "Categories" show up in the Legend...I'm trying to use your sample code, but again, it uses "ChartArea" object instead of "RadChart"...Am I dragging the wrong object over from the toolbox?  I should be using SL4 Telerik Controls...Version:  2010.1.422.1040

thanks

Hello mark baer,

You just need to drop a single RadChart instance without worrying about the ChartAreas and other details. The approach used in the first look example is recommended for sophisticated scenarios when users need to have their own custom chart layout. I would recommend you to have a look at the gallery example demonstrating a simple pie chart. After that you can review the attached example demonstrating the requested scenario.

Please refer to the online documentation for more information about data binding and and other topics related to the chart control.

And also when you need the assistance of the support team, please, open support threads using your customer account. This will speed up the response time for your questions.

Hope this will help.

Sincerely yours,
Velin
