    How would I go about populating an HTMLChart with the selected row within my RadGrid?  Upon a user selecting a row, I need the points on the graph mapped accordingly.  Need the dates across the X axis and amounts going up the Y axis.

    This example is what I want but not looking to query the database just use the records already returned.

     Appreciate your help.

    Hi Kurt,

    For achieving the desired result you will have to set the EnablePostBackOnRowClick property of the grid to true, handle the server-side OnItemCommand event, retrieve the information from the GridDataItem cells and create custom data source object that could be provided to the RadHtmlChart:
    <telerik:RadGrid runat="server" ID="RadGrid1" OnNeedDataSource="RadGrid1_NeedDataSource" OnItemCommand="RadGrid1_ItemCommand">
        <ClientSettings EnablePostBackOnRowClick="true">
            <Selecting AllowRowSelect="true" />
    <telerik:RadHtmlChart runat="server" ID="RadHtmlChart1">
                <telerik:BarSeries Name="Products" DataFieldY="spentMoney">
                    <TooltipsAppearance Color="White" DataFormatString="${0}"></TooltipsAppearance>
                    <LabelsAppearance Visible="false">
            <XAxis DataLabelsField="date">
                <MinorGridLines Visible="false"></MinorGridLines>
                <MajorGridLines Visible="false"></MajorGridLines>
                <LabelsAppearance DataFormatString="${0}"></LabelsAppearance>
                <MinorGridLines Visible="false"></MinorGridLines>
            <Appearance Visible="false"></Appearance>
        <ChartTitle Text="Some title"></ChartTitle>

    And the code-behind:
    protected void RadGrid1_NeedDataSource(object sender, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
        DataTable table = new DataTable();
        table.Columns.Add("ID", typeof(int));
        table.Columns.Add("3/31/2009", typeof(decimal));
        table.Columns.Add("6/30/2009", typeof(decimal));
        table.Columns.Add("9/30/2009", typeof(decimal));
        for (int i = 1; i < 5; i++)
            table.Rows.Add(i, 500 + i, 100 + i, 800 + i);
        (sender as RadGrid).DataSource = table;
    protected void RadGrid1_ItemCommand(object sender, GridCommandEventArgs e)
        if (e.CommandName == "RowClick")
            GridDataItem item = e.Item as GridDataItem;
            DataTable table = new DataTable();
            table.Columns.Add("date", typeof(string));
            table.Columns.Add("spentMoney", typeof(string));
            foreach (GridColumn column in RadGrid1.MasterTableView.RenderColumns)
                if (column.UniqueName.IndexOf("/") >= 0)
                    table.Rows.Add(column.UniqueName, item[column.UniqueName].Text);
            RadHtmlChart1.DataSource = table;

    Hope this helps.
