    I have duplicated the angular js example from telerik's website (, but I am having some trouble rendering the chart. At times it will render correctly, whereas at other times the width and height seem to be way off.

    Here is my code:
    module.controller('TestController', ['$scope', '$timeout', function ($scope, $timeout) {
                $ = new{
                    transport: {
                        read: {
                            url: "test_json/weather.json",
                            dataType: "json"

    <div data-kendo-sparkline
                                       type: 'column',
                                       field: 'TMax',
                                       color: '#ff0000',
                                       negativeColor: '#0099ff'
                                     data-k-tooltip="{ visible: false, shared: false }"
                                     data-k-chart-area="{ background: 'transparent' }"

    Any ideas why sometimes it will be ok, whereas other times it will not, and this happens in Chrome, FF and IE.

    I'm not sure why this is happening, but it looks like the container size is different in some cases.
    Please, try replacing the sparkline element with a span, as it is normally an inline element:
          <span kendo-sparkline
                         type: 'column',
                         field: 'TMax',
                         color: '#ff0000',
                         negativeColor: '#0099ff'
               k-tooltip="{ visible: false, shared: false }"

    Another option would be to specify explicit width through the style.
