visibility toggle is broken when you use the [series] binding (Angular UI)

Expected: Clicking on an item in the legend is supposed to toggle it's visibility.

Using kendo-angular-charts 5.1.0, if you add a series input, this does not happen. A full, minimal reproduction of this issue is available At the StackBlitz link below. The top chart has no issues (hides series upon clicking) while the bottom does.

Screenshots of above repro:

It appears that there is a line deep in the codebase that says:

const seriesComponent = this.seriesComponents.get(index);
if( !seriesComponent ){ return; }

And the seriesComponents array is empty when you use the [series] binding.

We even went so far as to bind to the legend click event and toggle the visibility myself, but it is 100% ignored.
It was something like:

public onLegendClick(event: LegendClickEvent){
  event.series.visibility = !event.series.visibility;

Calling refresh did redraw the chart, but it was still visible/enabled. Even though digging into it with ng.getComponent on the kendo-chart, and looking at the series, it clearly showed series[0].visible to be false.

I had to make an assumption on version for this ticket since the dropdown on the bug report doesn't list 5.1.0. I wouldn't mind tips on understanding how to match up your marketing version name with your npm version. I spent 20 minutes looking around for that, but your versioning doc and release history don't seem to have anything about the actual version numbers used by package management.

Hi Dan,

Thank you for the provided feedback and example.

The demonstrated behavior is caused by a limitation of the Chart when the series are declared as plain objects. Please check the following article on this topic which also provides a workaround for such use - case:

Please let me know in case any further information is required for this case.
