    It seems that all the RadSparkline variants require an explicit width and height to render. Is this true? I'm trying to get a sparkline to stretch to the width of its container, and it just doesn't seem to work.

    I've been more or less spamming HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" attributes in an attempt to get this to work, and have ended up with:

    <StackPanel Grid.Row="3" Grid.Column="1" Orientation="Vertical" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch">
        <ListBox ItemsSource="{Binding BinarySeries}" ItemContainerStyle="{StaticResource ListBoxItemStyle2}" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" HorizontalContentAlignment="Stretch">
                    <telerik:RadColumnSparkline AutoRange="True" Height="40" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" HorizontalContentAlignment="Stretch" ItemsSource="{Binding Values}" XValuePath="Timestamp" YValuePath="Value"  />

    Simply adding Width="xxx" to the RadColumnSparkline instantly causes it to render, but causes major issues on the UI side.

    Is there any way around this?

    Thanks for your time,

    Hi Loren,

    The RadSparkline controls do not require you to set Height/Width explicitly per se, but they do require specific dimensions to be set from their parent controls. For example if you place a sparkline in a grid panel it will stretch the sparkline and will display it correctly because the grid panel measures its children with real height/width. If you place a sparkline in a panel which measures it with Infinity (such as canvas, stack panel, scroll viewer, etc.) it will not render. This is the organic behavior for shapes (like rectangle, circle) and the rad sparkline. Any sparkline will behave just like a native silverlight rectangle shape when placed in such a panel.
