    Question Unanswered: [Chart] Clear old series markers


    what is the best way to remove the old series' sprites before (after) calling chart.redraw()?

    Basically, I am trying to define a chart that can dinamically adapt to various kinds of stores with column counts known only at runtime. I have succesfully managed to update the axes and series, however after calling redraw()/refresh(), the old series' sprites still remain.

    This is my code for binding a new store to the chart (this.chart is the chart, this is a wrapper panel):

    setStore: function(store){ = store; var fields =; this.chart.series.clear(); this.chart.axes.items[1].fields = fields; //just want to change the left axis, bottom stays the same
    for (var i = 1; i<fields.length; i++){
    this.dataView.series.add({type: 'line', axis: 'left', highlight: true, xField: 'startDate', yField: fields[i]});
    } = store; this.chart.refresh();
    This code currently just draws the newly configured chart over the old one, keeping the old records visible. What is the best way to clear the background surface of a chart?

    Thank you for your time.

    It may be better to remove the chart and reinstantiate it.
