I am using a cubedatasource and trying to format the data labels, but the format doesn't seem to take effect.  I am adding the series in the codebehind:

 

ChartSeries series = new ChartSeries("Avg Hours/Job", ChartSeriesType.Bar);
series.DataYColumn = "JobAvg";
series.DataLabelsColumn = "JobAvg";
series.DefaultLabelValue = "#Y{F}";
cht.Series.Add(series);

I am still getting values with 8 decimal places.  Anyone know why?

Hi Paul,

Please, remove the line that sets DataLabelsColumn. This interferes with DefaultLabelFormat which needs the value from the DataYColumn (through the #Y token) as a numeric value, so that the format is applied. DataLabelsColumn is intended for cases, where one would need a string label, taken from a completely different column.


Kind regards,
