Thank you for contacting us.
From the provided information it is not completely clear how you assign the LabelTemplate property. I have attached a project that demonstrates how to set a LabelTemplate runtime. Could you please take a look and see if this works for you. If not, could you please modify it in order to reproduce the error.
I look forward to your reply.
