dotNetCharting - how to calculate percentage on data from 2 different series

I have a chart with 2 series added to it. The first series is for total orders. The second series is the count of orders that are from repeat customers. I would like to add a 3rd series that is the calculated percentage. Basically just dividing the second series by the first one. I can't seem to figure out the syntax to make that work.

I am using the latest release from dotnetcharting.com
Dim sc As New SeriesCollection()

 

        RepeatCustomers.Debug = True

        RepeatCustomers.Title = "Repeat Customers"

        RepeatCustomers.XAxis.FormatString = "MMMyy"

        RepeatCustomers.LegendBox.Orientation = dotnetCHARTING.Orientation.Bottom

        RepeatCustomers.DateGrouping = TimeInterval.Months

 

        Dim sd As DateTime = New System.DateTime(2007, 5, 1, 0, 0, 0) '5/1/2007

        Dim ed As DateTime = New System.DateTime(Year(Now), Month(Now), Day(Now), 23, 59, 59)

 

        'Add a series

        Dim sql As String = "SELECT OrderDate,1 AS q FROM Orders WHERE OrderDate >= '" & sd.ToString & "' AND OrderDate <= '" & ed.ToString & "' ORDER BY OrderDate"

        Dim df As New Series()

        df.ConnectionString = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("DNCConnectionString").ToString

        df.StartDate = sd

        df.EndDate = ed

        df.Type = SeriesType.Cylinder

        df.DefaultElement.ShowValue = True

        df.Name = "Total Orders"

        df.SqlStatement = sql

        df.DefaultElement.Transparency = 50

 

        sc.Add(df)

 

        'repeat customer orders

        Dim sql2 As String = "query selects quantity of orders from repeat customers)"

        Dim rs As New Series()

        rs.Name = "Repeats"

        rs.SqlStatement = sql2

        rs.DefaultElement.Transparency = 50

        rs.Type = SeriesType.Cylinder

        rs.DefaultElement.ShowValue = True

        rs.ConnectionString = df.ConnectionString

 

        sc.Add(rs)

 

        RepeatCustomers.SeriesCollection.Add(sc)

You could just divide the series

Series s3 = s1 / s2;

You may also want to take a look at the data tutorial

Hope this helps,

Yea, i've tried just about everything including that. I've been through all the help files to no avail. I found what i thought would work which is Series.Divide but no dice. What's so strange is that if i manually create a series with elements these techniques work great. As soon as my series is attached to sql server for data it does not work. I'm pretty sure it's a bug in their component. When i do series.elements.count of a series filled from the sql server connection the count is 0 yet it displays fine on the chart.

Their support gave me the solution. It's an issue only relating to data coming from a database. This support article solves it:
