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.
