Visual Templates

Since Q2 2015 RadHtmlChart offers the ability to implement custom visualization of legend items, axis titles, labels, markers and series by utilizing the Kendo Drawing API. This is done by setting the corresponding item Visual property to a JavaScript function name. Various context information is available through the function argument fields. Such are rect (the kendo.geometry.Rect that defines where the visual should be rendered), createVisual (a function that can be used to get the default visual) and options (different options depending on the item type).
