    Using this code the chart will not draw and if pan/zoom will crash every time:
    @implementation ViewController
    - (void)viewDidLoad {
        [super viewDidLoad];
        TKChart *chart = [[TKChart alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectInset(self.view.bounds, 30, 100)];
        chart.autoresizingMask = UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleWidth | UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleHeight;
        [self.view addSubview:chart];
        NSMutableArray *randomNumericData = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];
        for (int i=0; i<1; i++) {
            [randomNumericData addObject:[[TKChartDataPoint alloc] initWithX:@(i) Y:@(arc4random()%100)]];

        TKChartColumnSeries *series = [[TKChartColumnSeries alloc] initWithItems:randomNumericData];
        [chart addSeries:series];
        chart.delegate = self;
        chart.title.hidden = NO;
        chart.title.text = @"Testing a chart demo";
        chart.legend.hidden = NO;
        chart.xAxis.allowPan = YES;
        chart.xAxis.allowZoom = YES;

        chart.allowAnimations = NO;

    Hi Avner,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The issue with drawing the chart in the case with only one data point is addressed and will be available in our next release. I can confirm that we have an issue when you try to zoom and the axis range is 0, like in the described scenario. I logged it and it will be addressed in our upcoming release that is scheduled for the end of this month. I updated your Telerik points for reporting this issue.

    Do not hesitate to contact us in case you need any help.

    Hi Adrian,

    was this issue fixed? I have a chart with one data point and when I set chart.xAxis.zoom - it crashes. Also if I have chart.xAxis.allowPan = YES then it crashes when I pan it.

    Hello Naos,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    1. I was able to reproduce the issue when you use zoom property of xAxis. I logged it in our feedback portal. You can use the following link to track the issues status. 

    2. Currently we are not able to reproduce such issue with allowPan property. Could you please send us a code snippet or a sample project where the issue occurs? Thanks.

    If you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact us.
