Waterfall Charts / Basic usage
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.
A Waterfall chart type shows the cumulative effect of positive or negative values on the starting point. Its purpose is to provide a better understanding of how an initial amount is influenced by subsequently added positive or negative values. A Waterfall chart is useful for different types of quantitative analysis related to inventory, cash flows, performance, etc.
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.
