I am new to the Chart control and would like to learn about all of the functionality of the control. Would anyone be able to provide for me a link where I could learn how to master the chart control?
I find the forums really don''t have the information I am looking for, or it takes too long to find that information.

Thank you for your interest in Essential Chart.
You can get started with Essential Chart through the following resources:
1. Product Samples: All of these samples installed with the product (with the evaluation version also) are accessible through the Developer Center interface. The samples come with C#and VB.NET source code. For Essential Chart, the samples provide information of Populating the Chart with data, different types of Charts, Settings for changing chart appearance, date specific handling and customizing the Chart legend.

Specific usage scenarios and tips are posted here on a regular basis.

You can see new samples that have not made into the chart install posted here first. Product updates and other time sensitive information is also posted to the blog.

FYI, the PDF User Guide for Essential Chart included with my full version of Syncfusion Essential Suite contains no data. It just has a link forwarding to the blog example.
Would you be able to forward me to a website where I could obtain an actual User Guide or a Class Reference for Charts?
Thanks, appreciate the quick response!
