Telerik UI for Blazor Chart is a data visualization component which allows you to output graphical representation of your data. It is useful when you would like to utilize modern browser technologies such as SVG or Canvas for interactive data visualizations. The chart supports various numerical, categorical and axis-free types. The current demo focuses on the Candlestick Chart.

It consists of a bar (the candle), representing the open and close values, and vertical lines, the candlesticks, which illustrate the highest and lowest values.

ColorField property of the series. In some scenarios, the open value might be greater than the close one – the Candlestick Chart lets you distinguish these points by setting dedicated
DownColor for them.

Spacing property to set your desired distance value. Additionally, you can configure the distance between the different categories though the
Besides series customization, the Blazor Chart exposes multiple nested tags that allow you configure the rest of the chart elements – Category Axis, Legend, Plot Area, Tooltip. Check the Chart API Reference for a full list of properties, methods and events.
