    I have a really small-sized chart (line graph) and I set the font size for the axis item label to 6.(Times New Roman).
    However, it seems that it becomes too blur(because radchart is an image).
    Rotating the labels did not help either.

    My solution is to skip alternate axis item labels but this did not really work out as each axis item label cannot use the space left behind by an adjacent axis item label. A font-size 8 label will still wrap to the next line(which is not what i want) instead of "overflowing".

    Does anybody has any idea on how to solve this?
    Thanks a lot!!!

    Hi wj,

    You may disable text wrapping for the X axis item labels:
    RadChart1.PlotArea.XAxis.Appearance.TextAppearance.AutoTextWrap = Styles.AutoTextWrap.False;

    You may also consider rotating the labels as shown in this help topic.
    Finally, you can control the text quality in RadChart like this:
    RadChart1.Appearance.TextQuality = Telerik.Charting.Styles.TextQuality.AntiAlias;
