I'm new to using the Telerik Charting controls in Silverlight. I need to implement a display which contains a chart. I started by using the RadCartesianChart. After working with RadCartesianChart for a bit, I discovered that there is no automatic legend support (unless I missed it somehow). After going through the help, I then came across the more general looking RadChart, which did have legend support.

I was wondering what the trade-offs (if any) are in using RadChart vs the RadChartView charts?
Is one more appropriate than the other in certain scenarios?
Are there performance differences when viewing a large amount of data?
Is one more low-level, requiring more coding while the other is higher level and requiring less coding, but maybe at the expense of performance?

What is the relationship (if any) between RadChart and RadChartView charts?
