Description

The Kendo UI chart is a powerful data visualization component, which allows you to graphically represent 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 component offers a variety of chart types such as area, bar, line, scatter, polar, radar, pie and donut, stock (OHLC), waterfall and other.

You can see in this sample demonstration of a Scatter chart, which shows data as points defined by their items' values. Scatter charts are useful for showing the relation between different sets of data, for example scientific (experimental) results.

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. You can find more information about the Kendo UI chart in the product documentation.
