    Hi, I'm really struggling to create a bar chart the way my boss wants it.
    If you have a look at the attached, what we are trying to achieve is the date across the bottom, then bars for each of the modules, so on the 10/12/2009, there would be three bars one for balancing, hospitality and membership.
    Hope somebody can help

    Hello Justin,

    You can achieve this scenario by creating a composite field in your business object that presents concatenated Date and Category like this:

    public class MyModel
        public string Category { get; set; }
        public DateTime XValue { get; set; }
        public string CompositeCategory
                return string.Format("{0}" + Environment.NewLine + "{1}", XValue.ToString(), Category);
        public double YValue { get; set; }

    Setting the XCategory item mapping to this field will map the item to a separate bar the same way like in your image. Your series mapping can look like this:

            <telerik:BarSeriesDefinition />
            <telerik:ItemMapping FieldName="CompositeCategory" DataPointMember="XCategory" />
            <telerik:ItemMapping FieldName="YValue" DataPointMember="YValue" />

    Hope this helps!

    Best wishes,
