Trying to use a skin (DeepBlue) and setting LegendDisplayMode to ItemLabels on a pie chart series does not work. It will not show the item labels, only the series name. If you close the solution and re-open, the LegendDisplayMode is set back to SeriesName, even though the *.designer.cs code behind still shows:
chartSeries1.Appearance.LegendDisplayMode = Telerik.Reporting.Charting.ChartSeriesLegendDisplayMode.ItemLabels;

I am able to reproduce this using the CSharp.ReportExamples.VS2008 project in the Quarterly Sales report (Dashboard > Dashboard.cs). Just apply a skin on the Yearly sales distribution pie chart. It automatically sets the LegendDisplayMode back to SeriesName. If you change it back to ItemLables and Preview the report, you'll see the series name again.

Is this why you guys used a custom palette instead of a skin?

Hi Eric,

Unfortunately you are correct and we verified that this is a bug - I've forwarded it to our charting team for logging into bug tracking database. However this is not the reason we used palette, we simply wanted to customize the overall appearance so that the dashboard is not too screaming.

Your Telerik points have been updated for bringing this to our attention.

All the best,
Steve
