    Hi meraj,

    This is the line, which will do the trick:

    radChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.CustomFormat = "0,K";

    Hi Ves -

    can you explain how CustomFormat = "0,K" works?  I get what it does, I just dont understand what its based on.  is this regex? or telerik specific?

    Hello kellyroberts,

    The format is based on the custom numeric format strings supported by the .Net Framework.

    Hope this helps.

    Setting Axis y label format="0, K" worked really fine.

    I was not able to get this custom format to work - it is appearing literally - "0,K" - to fix this, remove the double quotes and simply place the 0,K in this property.

    Thank you
