Is there a way to add in extra wordings to the auto generated legend item label?
I simply wanted to an aggregation type used in from the the legend label heading. So instead of a label showing "Outstanding category" from the dataseries, I wanted a "Count of Outstanding category" or "Sum of Outstanding Category" as the legend label.

Any suggestions will be helpful. Thanks

Hi Oliver,

There are several ways to modify the ChartLegend content.

The first is to manually create the legend items, like demonstrated in this help topic. 

You can also try using the LayoutUpdated event to change the already present content: 
this.RadChart1.DefaultView.ChartLegend.LayoutUpdated +=
    ChartLegend_LayoutUpdated;
 
void ChartLegend_LayoutUpdated(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    //Do not forget to unsubscribe, or you will cause a Layout Cycle
    this.RadChart1.DefaultView.ChartLegend.LayoutUpdated -=
        ChartLegend_LayoutUpdated;
 
    foreach (var legendItem in
        (this.RadChart1.DefaultView.ChartLegend as ItemsControl).Items)
    {
        (legendItem as ChartLegendItem).Label = "Count of " +
            (legendItem as ChartLegendItem).Label;
    }
}

But perhaps the easiest one is set the the LegendLabel property of the series definition to the string you want to have in the corresponding legend item.

If you have any further questions feel free to ask.
