I need to render the Y axis on a horizontal bar chart like so...

                  |
                  |
   My Label |XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
                  |
                  |
Next Label |XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
                  |
                  |___________________________________
                  0             1            2              3          4....

Any ideas how this could be done?

Thanks.

Hi Nigel,

I see you want to create a horizontal bar chart. You can set SeriesOrientation to Horizontal in order ro achieve it.
To be able to set custom text for axis labels you can choose one of these approaches:

1. Use XAxis.DataLabelsColumn as shown in our help topic - http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/buildingdatatbindlistcomplex.html.

2. Turn off AutoScale property:

RadChart1.PlotArea.XAxis.AutoScale = false;

Then you can subscribe to BeforeLayout event of the chart and set custom value to every Axis Item. Here is how you can achieve this:

protected void RadChart1_BeforeLayout(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        string[] someText = new string[] { "label1", "label2", "label3" };
        for (int i = 0; i < someText.Length; i++)
        {
            RadChart1.PlotArea.XAxis.Items[i].TextBlock.Text = someText[i];
        }
    }

Note, that when using horizontal orientation the vertical axis is actually the X axis, so its items are altered in the above suggestions. I hope this helps.
