    How do you hide the item label (number above the bar in a bar chart) for each series when series is created at runtime through needdatasource?

    Based off of the other thread about dynamic population of the chart, I resolved the issues with naming the series in the legend and and removing the item labels.  One thing I am struggling with now, that worked with the other method was setting the xaxis datalabelscolumn.

    Any ideas?

        Private Sub Chart1_NeedDataSource(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Chart1.NeedDataSource 
                    Dim table As DataTable 
            table = GetDTNoQ() 
            Dim chart As Telerik.Reporting.Processing.Chart = DirectCast(sender, Telerik.Reporting.Processing.Chart) 
            Dim chartDef As Telerik.Reporting.Chart = DirectCast(chart.ItemDefinition, Telerik.Reporting.Chart) 
            Dim series1 As New Telerik.Reporting.Charting.ChartSeries() 
            Dim series2 As New Telerik.Reporting.Charting.ChartSeries() 
            For Each rowView As DataRowView In table.DefaultView 
                Dim seriesItem1 As New Telerik.Reporting.Charting.ChartSeriesItem() 
                seriesItem1.Label.Visible = False 
                seriesItem1.YValue = CDbl(rowView("score")) 
                seriesItem1.Appearance.FillStyle.FillType = Telerik.Reporting.Charting.Styles.FillType.Solid 
                series1.Name = "Score" 
                seriesItem1.Appearance.FillStyle.FillType = Charting.Styles.FillType.Gradient 
                Dim seriesItem2 As New Telerik.Reporting.Charting.ChartSeriesItem() 
                seriesItem2.Label.Visible = False 
                seriesItem2.YValue = CDbl(rowView("Score 2")) 
                series2.Name = "Score 2" 
                seriesItem2.Appearance.FillStyle.FillType = Telerik.Reporting.Charting.Styles.FillType.Solid 
                seriesItem2.Appearance.FillStyle.FillType = Charting.Styles.FillType.Gradient 
            chartDef.PlotArea.Chart.DefaultType = Charting.ChartSeriesType.Line 
            chartDef.PlotArea.XAxis.AutoScale = True 
            Dim mycount As Int32 = CInt(table.Rows.Count / 8) 
            Chart1.PlotArea.XAxis.LabelStep = mycount 
        End Sub

    Hello Joel,

    There is no reason why this property would not be taken into account unless there is no Weekname column in your db. Have you tried setting it in NeedDataSource to the chartDef item to see if that would make a difference?

    chartDef.PlotArea.XAxis.DataLabelsColumn = "Weekname"

    If still having problems, we would appreciate if you send us a runnable project.
    However hiding the item labels does not require you to manually create the series at runtime and your initial problem should be resolved by setting the ShowLabels property to false, so if this was the only culprit, you can revert back to the project you've send me and test it with the above property.
