    What is the best way to completely turn animation off?  I tried setting all of the properties to TimeSpan of zero, as well as setting AnimationSettings to null.  My window has 23 charts on the screen when it loads, each with a bar and line series.  I still see an odd flicker when the window loads.  It looks like it briefly displays the bar and line pieces in various places, then it positions and sizes everything (after that it looks fine...this happens in about a second).  Maybe the animation is still there, but it is trying to happen very fast.

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for your feedback on RadChart for WPF.

    Try setting the EnableAnimations property of each ChartArea to false. This will effectively disable the animation for all DataSeries hosted within. Please, let us know whether this has worked for you.

    And just in case -- how many items are you trying to display in each of these 23 charts?

    I tried setting EnableAnimations to false, but it still does it.  It must be a rendering issue.  Maybe I see it because of the number of charts on my window.  All 23 charts each have 2 data series - a bar and line.  Each data series has 12 points.  I would be glad to email you an image of the chart as I briefly see it before it renders correctly.  I would attach it here, but I don't see a way to attach files.  It shows the bar rectangles, line circles for the points, and a small line segment for each line between each of the points.  Each of those pieces are in the right column, but it looks like their size and position is not set yet.  After probably less than one second, all the charts show correctly.  Maybe those pieces should not be visible until they are databound and their layout is set (I'm just guessing though).  It is not a major issue for me, but probably worth investigating since someone else may see it too.

    Hello Michael,

    We will further investigate this issue and provide a fix in a future version of the control. Your Telerik points have been updated for reporting this.

    I noticed that wpf sp1 will be out on December 15th (http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/08-12-02/WPF_RadChart_3D_Labels_and_Formatting.aspx).  Will this specific issue be addressed for this service pack?  Thanks!

    Hi Michael,

    Unfortunately, our SP schedule is really tight and I am afraid we will not be able to dedicate the necessary time to investigate this. Being in our list, we will plan that time to provide a solution in a future release.  Once again, we are sorry for the inconvenience.
