    Hi Team,

    I have implemented a RadChart with the type "PieChart" and applied the LabelsAppearance Position as "Circle". The DataField label string is used in the control.

    The problem I am facing is when the text in the "DataField label" is too long, the text appeared on the Pie Chart cuts off.
    I need to Wrap up the label text appeared on the Chart. Is there a way to Wrap the DataField label in Telerik radChart.?

    Telerik Version: 2013.2.611.35 

    The below given is the sample code to show the RadChart.

          <telerik:RadHtmlChart RegisterWithScriptManager="true" ID="RadHtmlChart1" runat="server"
                               Skin="Vista" Width="650px" Height="450px" Transitions="true" EnableEmbeddedScripts="true"
                               InvokeLoadData="OnPageLoad" RenderMode="Lightweight" EnableAjaxSkinRendering="true">
                               <ChartTitle Text="Alerts">
                               <Appearance FillStyle-BackgroundColor="White">
                                       <telerik:PieSeries DataFieldY="Value" ColorField="Color" ExplodeField="IsExploded"
                                           <LabelsAppearance DataField="Details" Position="Circle" >


    Please refer the screenshot attached. Its Very Urgent. Please do the needs.

    Hi Vasanth,

    Text wrapping is not available in RadHtmlChart because SVG itself does not support line breaks in text elements. If we have a breakthrough in this area it will be announced in the Release Notes and this relevant request.

    What I can suggest at this point is putting long content in the tooltips, because they are HTML and can wrap text. You can either truncate the data from the column that sets the labels, or use different values, depending on your needs, scenario and data.
