Show a message when there is no data in Html Chart EmptyMessage
When there is no data in the source of the chart, the plot area should be displaying a message in predefined format. Something similar to what we have in the Grid and other controls.

Hello Kasim,

Thanks a lot for the summited feature request!

We will track the overall interest about such implementation, meanwhile you can use an approach similar to the one demonstrated in the following article to achieve it:


In ASP.NET AJAX scenario this solution will look like follows:

        .container {
            position: relative;

        .overlay {
            width: 100%;
            height: 100%;
            position: absolute;
            top: 0;
            left: 0;
            opacity: .2;
            background-color: #6495ed;
            text-align: center;

            .overlay div {
                position: relative;
                font-size: 34px;
                margin-top: -17px;
                top: 50%;
        <div class="container">
            <div class="overlay"><div>No data available</div></div>
                <telerik:RadHtmlChart ID="RadHtmlChart2" runat="server">
                    <ClientEvents OnLoad="onChartLoad" />
            var $ = $ || $telerik.$;

            function onChartLoad(chartO, args) {
                var chart = chartO.get_kendoWidget();
                var view = chart.dataSource.view();
                $(".overlay").toggle(view.length === 0);
