If you're using the Charting.dll
this means that you're using the old RadChart
control. We usually recommend upgrading to the RadChartView
control for all new development tasks as the new version is improved in terms of performance and implementation. Also, if you can upgdare to our latest version, you will be able to take full advantage of our latest features and fixes.
However, with both controls - RadChart
, it is not recommended to display the same value multiple times in the axis. This is due to the fact that generally in a charting component, when a categorical axis displays recurrent values, the plotted data is less readable. Basically to be complete and meaningful, quantitative information consists of both quantitative data - the numbers—and categorical data —the labels that tell us what the numbers measure. This is why the categories that convey the meaning of the data points have to be unique and if you provide a Chart
with data that doesn't consist of unique categorical values, then the component will group the data accordingly and it will only display the unique values in its categorical axis.
This means that in your case, where you need to display string values in the X-axis, you can't display all entries as ticks unless you change them to be unique. For instance, you can add spaces in the values of your X-axis properties so that they can display the same string but be considered as unique values by the charting component.
