Hey guys, the new ChartView control looks great.

That said, I spent the last few months trying to get your RadChart to do similar things and now am in the position of having to throw that away.

I'm fine with that, I just need a REAL WORLD example of how to bind dynamic database data against a chart.

While your examples use static data loaded up initially, we need an example that shows the control ASYNCHRONOUSLY retrieving data from a server and binding against it.

The data returned can be static, we just need to know how and where the delegates and hooks are to be able to have an INTERACTIVE control that is able to CHANGE data on the fly.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi,

RadChartView is a standard silverlight control which can be databound and used much like the native listbox and datagrid controls. Its series accept an object implementing the IEnumerable as a most basic requirement. However, the control also supports change notifications via the INotifyCollectionChanged interface.

Whether you supply data to the control in a synchronous or asynchronous manner using non-telerik infrastructure is of little importance to RadChartView.

As far as data plumbing is concerned you may find it interesting to take a look at the following Telerik products making it easier to bring the data down to the chart:

http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#DataServiceDataSource/FirstLook
http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#DomainDataSource/FirstLook

The chart control will have no problem consuming either a static data source or one implementing the INotifyCollectionChanged interface.
