    Quick question: is there a way set the valueAxis min and max based on the series data? For example I want the min to be 25 less than the minimum value present in my data set and I want the max to be 25 more than the maximum value in my data set?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Chris,

    In order to achieve the expected result I can suggest setting valueAxis min/max values dynamically via the setOptions() method. As an example:
    //get reference to the chart widget
    var chart = $("#chart").data("kendoChart");
    //set min / max options
    chart.setOptions({valueAxis: {min: 0, max: 400}});

    So if i am binding the chart via remote data and then attempting to set min and max via the render event, how would I set the min and max based on values from the chart?  ie - how do I access the series mix and max values from javascript?

    Actually I found a post

    however, my chart is in MVC not created in Jquery so is there a way to set these after render?  I tried setting in the render event, but it has no effect.  And if I try to redraw() within that event, you get an infinite loop as redraw fires render event again.

    Hello, Robert,

    The DataBound event should provide you with the desired functionality. For example, if you wanted to set the valueAxis height to always be a quarter of the height of its bars, you could use a function like the one below:

    .Events(events => events
    function calculateColumnsMax(e) {
        var chart = this;
        var volumeValueAxisMax = Math.max( => stock.Volume)) * 4;
        // set valueAxis max so the bars are always 1/4 of the chart height
        chart.options.valueAxis[0].max = volumeValueAxisMax;

    Give this a try and let us know in case of further questions.

    Kind Regards,
