    Hi all,
    I have a RadChart and most of the Y-Axis label values are very high like 10.000.000 etc. I want to use Scientific (power) notation like;
    10.000.000 => 10 x 10power6 (10 times 10 to the power of 6)
    50.000.000 => 50 x 10power6 (50 times ten to the power of 6) etc.

    How can I do that?

    Thank you for contacting Telerik Support

    In order to apply Scientific value format it can be done like this:
    radChart.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.ValueFormat = Telerik.Charting.Styles.ChartValueFormat.Scientific;

    To be able to further customize the value format you could use the axis' Appearance.CustomFormat property.

    For more information about label formatting please, take a look at our help topic here.

    Hope this helps. Please, do let me know if you have further questions.
