Hello,

I need a little help with a kendo chart.  I have attached my "attempt" below.

What i am trying to do is have a bar chart with 12 bars each with a single value.  I need to give each bar a seperate colour.  An example is shown below.

I am trying to separate my data from everything else such as the bar colours.  

I am not a JS expert, or kendo expert!, and i can't seem to get the chart working.  I think i am 80% there but there is an error(s) in the code.

How it should look
<script>
 
  var  zdata = 
                [{"name": "Vanföreställningar", "data": "4"},
                {name: "Hallucinationer", data: [4]},
	{name: "Agitation/aggressivitet",data: [9]},
                {name: "Depression/dysfori", data: [4]},
                {name: "Ångest", data: [2]},
                {name: "Eufori/upprymdhet", data: [1]},
                {name: "Apati/likgiltighet", data: [9]},
                {name: "Hämningslöshet", data: [6]},
                {name: "Irritabilitet/labilitet", data: [4]},
                {name: "Motorisk av. beteende",data: [2]},
                {name: "Sömn", data: [4]},
                {name: "Aptit/ätstörningar", data: [12]}] ;

  
$("#chart").kendoChart({

  categoryAxis: { field: "name"},
  datasource:{data: zdata},
  series: [{field: "data" }],

  seriesColors: ["STEELBLUE", "FIREBRICK", "GOLD", "LIGHTBLUE", "INDIANRED", "DIMGREY", "MEDIUMBLUE", "POWDERBLUE",  "GREY", "MEDIUMVIOLETRED", "GREEN","SKYBLUE" ],
	legend: { visible: true, position: "bottom" }}
                      );
</script>

Have you tried putting quotes around the fields in the zdata JSON?
