    Hi Greg,

    Most probably your colleague submitted the same inquiry. Below is a quote from my response:

    "The feature is not available in Telerik Reporting. Please feel free to log a feature request for having such in future. Features are considered based on the community demand for them.

    I can suggest you the following workarounds:
    1. Use 4 images representing the different values 0-4 and a PictureBox item (can be the Style.BackgroundImage of another item as well). Then use a binding to the Value or BackgroundImage property based on a field that determines which image to be used e.g.:
      //PictureBox item
      Property Path:Value
      Expression: ='http://mysite/resources/'+Fields.[0To4Field]+'.png'
    2. Use a Graph item - How to: Create Pie chart, where you will need to have two values to generate the circle."

    I hope this information is helpful.

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items

    Here is what I ended up using.  Unicode characters producing Harvey Balls:


    private char GetHarveyBall(decimal percent)
    //Empty Circle
    if (percent < 0.20M)
    return '\x25cb';

    //Quarter Circle
    if (percent < 0.40M)
    return '\x25d4';

    //Half Circle
    if (percent < 0.60M)
    return '\x25d1';

    //Three Quarter Circle
    if (percent < 0.80M)
    return '\x25d5';

    //Full Circle
    return '\x25cf';
