    Hi Kannan,

    Currently we provide 2 controls for the ASP.NET AJAX platform - RadChart and RadHtmlChart.

    RadChart is our older solution which was build when browsers had much more limited capabilities and servers-side rendering was the only reliable way to have a consistent experience. It uses the older GDI+ interface for graphics, which however provides good export functionality. The control provides mature functionality such as 17 chart series and ability to change the series orientation to horizontal - that way nearly doubling the number of supported series (column series becomes bar series and vice-versa). Additionally it allows for manual appearance customization of many of its elements.

    RadHtmlChart is our newer charting solution which we added with our Q2 2012 release. It is an ASP.NET control wrapper around our Kendo UI Chart. (Kendo UI is a HTML5, jQuery-based framework for building modern HTML apps. Kendo UI combines the best of emerging HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript technologies with robust, cross-browser techniques to deliver a framework that is both powerfully rich and broadly compatible with older browsers.)
    RadHtmlChart provides inline Sparkline layout, data navigation and clustering of stacked series. Additionally it provides the following benefits over RadChart:
    • Server and network performance - each time a user requests a page that has a RadChart, the server had to render a new image and send it over the network to the client's browser. With RadHtmlChart on the other hand, serialized data is sent to the client that way minimizing the server and network overhead.
    • Rich client-side interactivity - offering animated transitions and hover effects. Moreover, the control provides client-side events and methods which for example can be used to load data on demand.

    RadHtmlChart currently provides Area, Bar, Bubble, Column, Candlestick, Donut, Pie, Line, Scatter (point) and ScatterLine series. Both Bar and Column series can be stacked.

    Since the majority of our development efforts concentrated on RadHtmlChart, you can expect many new features to be added in the future.
