Change chart type?

I'm having a look at Syncfusion and looking at the demo's it looks really nice. It may well be me being stupid though but I cannot find a way to change the chart type, the only chart I get is a simple bar graph.

I'm using VS2013, VB.Net and a LightSwitch Silverlight project (I.E. not a HTML project)

I've looked through all the properties at design time of the SfChart control type and can't find anything relevant to change. I've also viewed the properties of the control at runtime in code (using FindControl to get a handle to the control, doing an AddHandler for when the control is available etc.) and again I can't find where/what to change.

I've even loaded up the C# Silverlight sample which shows 3 x graphs of different types ... and still can't spot what I am doing wrong!

If someone could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful :)
