    I understand this is a relatively new product, but I'm running into a pretty odd issue with the chart not formatting decimal values from a Typed List into currency.

    Here is what's on the front-end. Note, that for the DataFormatString in the Series' Label and Tooltip Appearance I've tried ${0}, {0:C}, ${0:0.00}, and a multitude of other options. However, it would show the entire decimal value (rather than rounding up on the last two digits) (see attached). What's interesting is that the Y-Axis label comes up perfectly fine.

    This is what generates the data for the chart:

    var qry = _ctx.VSalesRepCommissionGroupeds
        .Where(s => s.SurgeryDate.Value >= RadCommissionChartBeginOn)
        .OrderBy(s => s.SurgeryDate.Value)
        .Select(r => new
            SurgeryDate = r.SurgeryDate.Value.ToString("MMM yyyy")
    radData = qry.GroupBy(r => r.SurgeryDate).Select(r => new RepCommissionChartData
        Commissions = r.Sum(x => x.CommissionDue),
        SurgeryDate = r.Key

    Now, if I change the line that generates the sum of CommissionDue to decimal.Round(r.Sum(x => x.CommissionDue), 2, MidpointRounding.AwayFromZero) it obviously rounds up the first two digits, but doesn't show a comma.

    Shouldn't the front end format it using either of those formatting options or am I doing something wrong?
