Bar Charts / Basic usage
The Kendo UI chart is a data visualization widget which allows you to output a graphical representation of your data. It is useful when you would like to utilize modern browser technologies such as SVG or Canvas (with a fallback to VML for older IE versions) for interactive data visualizations. The chart supports various chart types such as area, bar, line, scatter, pie and donut, etc. as well as stock (OHLC).
A Bar chart displays data as horizontal or vertical bars whose lengths vary according to their value. You can use a Bar chart to show a comparison between several sets of data (for example, summaries of the unique and total site visitors for certain period).
To instantiate a Kendo UI chart, you need to specify an empty div with an id on the page, select this div with a jQuery selector and invoke the kendoChart() function. As a result, the chart is registered as a standard jQuery plugin.
The chart can fetch data for its series from either local or remote data source. It can also use the Kendo UI DataSource as a mediator for processing data.
Additional information about how to use the Kendo UI chart widget can be found in this section of the product documentation.
