    I'd like to databind the LegendLabel to a field of my viewmodel.
    <telerikCharting:SeriesMapping LegendLabel="{Binding ViewModelField}" >

    When opening my window the Legend displays "Series 0" instead of the value from my ViewModelField. When I refresh the View by updating the ItemsSource of the RadChart control I get the LegendLabel value I want.

    Any ideas of what is going wrong?
    I'm using the Q1/2011 WPF chart control.

    Hi Horst,

    Unfortunately we were unable to reproduce the problematic behavior in our local tests. Please review the attached sample application and let us know how can we observe the erroneous issue so we can advise you properly how to proceed.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    I go through your sample application and LegendLabel is binding in it. But if we assign View DataContext in code behind (instead of static in XAML) then it does not work even in your sample application.

    Let me tell you exact step in your sample application to reproduce this issue.
    Remove the following line from your "MainWindow.xaml"
            <demo:ViewModel />

    Now assign datacontext in constructor of "MainWindow.xaml.cs" like this.
    public MainWindow()
                this.DataContext = new ViewModel();

    Why is this behavior? Any alternative to bind LegendLabel when we will have to assign DataContext through code?

    Hello Muhammad,

    The equivalent of setting the DataContext in XAML would look like this in code-behind (move the setter prior to the InitializeComponent() call):
    public MainWindow()
        this.DataContext = new ViewModel();
