    I create a radChartView with three bar series and a legend and show it on the form.
    Then I change runtime programatically the appearance of the two series (I make them invisible: IsVisible = false), but the legend remains the same.

    For comparison - in the MSChart such stupidity is not observed

    Hello, Valery,    

    By design, RadChartView doesn't hide the legend items if the associated series is hidden. However, it can be easily achieved. Here is demonstrated a sample code snippet:

    public RadForm1()
        LineSeries barSeries = new LineSeries();
        barSeries.LegendTitle = "Q1";
        barSeries.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(177, "Harley"));
        barSeries.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(128, "White"));
        barSeries.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(143, "Smith"));
        barSeries.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(111, "Jones"));
        barSeries.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(118, "Marshall"));
        LineSeries barSeries2 = new LineSeries();
        barSeries2.LegendTitle = "Q2";
        barSeries2.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(153, "Harley"));
        barSeries2.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(141, "White"));
        barSeries2.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(130, "Smith"));
        barSeries2.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(88, "Jones"));
        barSeries2.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(109, "Marshall"));
        this.radChartView1.ShowLegend = true;
    private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        this.radChartView1.Series[0].IsVisible = !this.radChartView1.Series[0].IsVisible;
        foreach (LegendItemElement itemElement in this.radChartView1.ChartElement.LegendElement.StackElement.Children)
            LineSeries s = itemElement.LegendItem.Element as LineSeries;
            if (s != null)
                if (s.IsVisible)
                    itemElement.Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility.Visible;
                    itemElement.Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility.Collapsed;

    I hope this information helps. If you have any additional questions, please let me know.
