    I want to use your Pie3D chart control in a WPF project (like here : http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/radchart-features-chart-types-3d-charts.html)
    Do you have any sample ?

    I looked into WPF Controls Example without success.

    I want to quickly explain about the RadChart and the ChartView.

    We have two different charting solutions - the old RadChart (resides in Charting.dll)  and the new ChartView (a set of controls, residing in the Chart.dll).

    The old RadChart has many limitations and some problems. We have not developed any new features in it for the last three years. One of its limitation is that it cannot work with implicit styling. Since our WPF QSF is using implicit styling - the old RadChart cannot live there any more. This is why you cannot find it, we have removed it from our demos.

    The new ChartView is a set of controls - RadCartesianChart, RadPiechart, RadPolarChart, ChartDataSource. It is extremely fast, very easy to set up and it is quite flexible. It does not yet have all features that the old control has, but we strongly suggest using it instead of the old charting control. We have found that 3D does not bring any additional value to data visualization and this is why we still do not have a 3D pie chart with the new ChartView.

    You can find an example of the old RadChart's 3D pie here. However, I will again say that we suggest you do not use it. Use the new control. Perhaps you will be happy enough with it loos if you customize it a bit. Customization sdk sample here (you may want to get the sdk samples browser). I am attaching an image of the sdk sample. 

    Let us know if you need more information.
