Having problems with labels showing up in the right place or at all. I have multiple charts on one page and one chart has 4 series in it and I am using this code to set the lables positions but some of them dont show up at all.

Series2_3.Items[0].Label.Appearance.LabelLocation = Telerik.Charting.Styles.

 

StyleSeriesItemLabel.ItemLabelLocation.Outside;

 

Series2_3.Items[0].Label.Appearance.Position.AlignedPosition = Telerik.Charting.Styles.

 

AlignedPositions.Left;

also I am setting the label text  color to black but that doesn't work either

 

Series2_1.AddItem(itm2.AdministrativeServices,

 

"Administrative Services", Color.Black);


any suggestions?
Thanks!

Here is a picture of the part of the chart that I am having trouble with
 and the code that generates the bugs in the chart.

Series2_1.AddItem(itm2.AdministrativeServices, "Administrative Services", Color.Black);
           Series2_1.Items[0].Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = Color.FromArgb(250, 245, 84, 117);
           Series2_1.Items[0].Appearance.FillStyle.SecondColor = Color.FromArgb(250, 245, 84, 117);
           Series2_1.Items[0].ActiveRegion.Url = "DashboardDetails.aspx?c=AS";
           Series2_1.Items[0].ActiveRegion.Tooltip = "Administrative Services";
           Series2_1.Items[0].Label.Appearance.Visible = true;
           Series2_1.Items[0].Appearance.Border.Color = Color.Transparent;
           Series2_2.AddItem(itm2.AdministrativeServicesToConcept, "To Concept");
           Series2_2.Items[0].Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = Color.FromArgb(150, 245, 84, 117);
           Series2_2.Items[0].Appearance.FillStyle.SecondColor = Color.FromArgb(150, 245, 84, 117);
           Series2_2.Items[0].Appearance.Border.Color = Color.Transparent;
           Series2_2.Items[0].Label.Appearance.LabelLocation = Telerik.Charting.Styles.StyleSeriesItemLabel.ItemLabelLocation.Outside;
           Series2_2.Items[0].Label.Appearance.Position.AlignedPosition = Telerik.Charting.Styles.AlignedPositions.Left;
           Series2_3.AddItem(itm2.AdministrativeServicesApproved, "Approved");
           Series2_3.Items[0].Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = Color.FromArgb(50, 245, 84, 117);
           Series2_3.Items[0].Appearance.FillStyle.SecondColor = Color.FromArgb(50, 245, 84, 117);
           Series2_3.Items[0].Appearance.Border.Color = Color.Transparent;

I included an image of the whole chart. You can see that the labels work fine on some bars but on the first bars
they dont show up at all? Here is all the code. Seems like it should be a simple thing I am overlooking.
So your help is greatly appreciated!


RadChart2.ChartTitle.TextBlock.Text = "Services";

Hello Scott ,

It is hard for me to say what could be the possible reason for this unwanted behavior based on the provided information.
I tried to reproduce it with the following code and it behaves as expected on my side:

RadChart RadChart1 = new RadChart();
  
ChartSeries series1 = new ChartSeries();
series1.AddItem(50, "Administrative Services", Color.Black);
series1.Items[0].Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = Color.FromArgb(250, 245, 84, 117);
series1.Items[0].Appearance.FillStyle.SecondColor = Color.FromArgb(250, 245, 84, 117);
series1.Items[0].Label.Appearance.LabelLocation = StyleSeriesItemLabel.ItemLabelLocation.Inside;
series1.Items[0].Label.Appearance.Position.AlignedPosition = AlignedPositions.Bottom;
RadChart1.Series.Add(series1);
  
ChartSeries series2 = new ChartSeries();
series2.AddItem(70, "My Label", Color.Black);
series2.Items[0].Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = Color.FromArgb(250, 245, 84, 117);
series2.Items[0].Appearance.FillStyle.SecondColor = Color.FromArgb(250, 245, 84, 117);
series2.Items[0].Label.Appearance.LabelLocation = StyleSeriesItemLabel.ItemLabelLocation.Inside;
series2.Items[0].Label.Appearance.Position.AlignedPosition = AlignedPositions.Center;
RadChart1.Series.Add(series2);
  
RadChart1.AutoLayout = true;
  
RadChart1.SeriesOrientation = ChartSeriesOrientation.Horizontal;
this.Page.Controls.Add(RadChart1);

Could you attach your runnable code sample so that we will be able to investigate what might be causing this on your side and get back to you with our feedback based on the code?

NOTE: You are not allowed to attach archived files in our forums so you may need to use a third party site where your project can be uploaded and just provide us the link to it.
