    Can someone please explain how can I create Line Chart that will contain multiple series, BUT with customized ClientTemplate.
    I've read that customization of ClientTemplate is possible if HtmlChart is bind to datasource, but if I bind it, the result is ONE single line, not multiple sets...

    Thanx in advance,

    Hello Stefan,

    It is fine to use templates in tooltips/labels for a non-databound chart. The advantage of using templates in a data-bound chart, however, is that you can display custom text(i.e., obtained from other data source fileds). See such an example is illustrated in the HtmlChart - Client Templates for Series Labels and Tooltips demo.

    Regarding defining templates in multiple series -  each series must be configured with the corresponding template. You must also consider the following - when creating templates from code behind and there are quotes, they must be escaped with double back slashes and not a single one like it is done in the markup. See details in the Handling Special Symbols article.

    Let me know if there is anything else on this regard.
