    I have null reference exception with just simple code of charts components (components version 2011.2.920.35)

    System.NullReferenceException occurred
      Message=Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
           at Telerik.Windows.Controls.Charting.AxisX.CalculateItemRange(DataSeries dataSeries, Int32 index, Boolean shouldSubtractItemWidth) in c:\TB\102\WPF_Scrum\Release_WPF\Sources\Development\Controls\Chart\Chart\ChartArea\Axis\AxisX.cs:line 384

    Code example
    <telerik:RadChart Name="MonitoringChart" />
    private void UserControl_DataContextChanged(object sender, DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs e)
            var lineSeriesDefinition = new LineSeriesDefinition();
            lineSeriesDefinition.ShowItemLabels = true;
            lineSeriesDefinition.ShowItemToolTips = true;
            lineSeriesDefinition.ItemToolTipFormat = "#Y at #X{dd-MMM-yy HH:mm:ss}";
            lineSeriesDefinition.AxisName = item.Name;
            var items = new List<DataPoint<object>>();
            items.Add(new DataPoint<object>() { Time = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(0), Value = 1 });
            items.Add(new DataPoint<object>() { Time = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(1), Value = 2 });
            items.Add(new DataPoint<object>() { Time = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(2), Value = 3 });
            items.Add(new DataPoint<object>() { Time = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(3), Value = 4 });
            var seriesMapping = new SeriesMapping();
            seriesMapping.ItemsSource = items; //item.Values;
            seriesMapping.LegendLabel = item.Name;
            seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition = lineSeriesDefinition;
            seriesMapping.ItemMappings.Add(new ItemMapping() { FieldName = "Time", DataPointMember = DataPointMember.XValue });
            seriesMapping.ItemMappings.Add(new ItemMapping() { FieldName = "Value", DataPointMember = DataPointMember.YValue });

    public class DataPoint<T>
        public DataPoint()
        public DataPoint(T value, DateTime time)
            Value = value;
            Time = time;
        public T Value { get; set; }
        public DateTime Time { get; set; }

    Hi Mark,

    We couldn't reproduce the problem with the latest binaries. You can get the latest internal build (LIB) from your account page. I have created a simple WPF application that uses your code and the latest binaries. Please test it in your environment and let us know how it is.

    All the best,

    I was receiving a similar Null Reference Exception due to incorrect XAML markup.  I was missing the <chart:ChartArea.DataSeries> item below.  Ensure that the RadChart XAML is structured similar to this:

    							<chart:DataPoint YValue="80" XValue="40909"></chart:DataPoint>
    							<chart:DataPoint YValue="85" XValue="40910"></chart:DataPoint>
    							<chart:DataPoint YValue="82" XValue="40911"></chart:DataPoint>
    							<chart:DataPoint YValue="90" XValue="40912"></chart:DataPoint>
    							<chart:DataPoint YValue="85" XValue="40913"></chart:DataPoint>
