    My company just purchased the Telerik Premium Collection for .NET and asked me to start making some charts that are due in a few days. I have no experience with Telerik or reporting in general so I need as much help as I can get.

    I have a database table that represents each developer’s time scheduled by project managers. It has the following fields:
    Employee, Date, Hours, Project Code

    My manager wants a stacked bar chart that has the date on the X axis and hours on the Y axis. Each bar would show the number of hours scheduled that day grouped by project code. He wants the chart to show one employee at a time with the ability to switch to different employees. The dates on the X axis would show the current week with the ability to scroll to the right to see future dates scheduled, up to 3 months. Also, he wants you to be able to hover over the bar chart to see the project code related to those hours.

    2. You can find help articles on how to data bind your chart to any of the supported data sources here.
    3. Article describing how to define DataGroupColumn to group your series you can find at
    4. - here you can find more information on how to set up custom text to be displayed when the user hovers over a specific item. You could also check our online drill down example for additional information.
    5. Article describing the scrolling functionality of RadChart can be found here.There is also example demonstrating scrolling functionality with RadChart available here.
    6. RadChart also gives you the opportunity to bind the labels on the X axis to a specific column in your data source. For this to work you should set the DataLabelsColumn property of the X axis to the name of the column from your data source.

    I hope this will help you get started with RadChart.
