Hello,

I'm building a report using Report Designer Q2 2012 but I have a problem with labels that are too close to each other. I want to hide them in the chart but I can't find a way to do that. So let me explain my scenario:

I have a table with 3 columns: ActivityName, DayNr and NrOfMessages. ActivityName can be many things, so the chart series must be dynamic. I use the property "DataGroupColumn" and assign it value to "ActivityName" and that way I have the dynamic series generated. But now I can't change the series appearance and change "ShowLabels" property to false. I can't make this report using code, it must be done in the designer and I can't use either the "IntelligentLabelsEnabled" as true because I lose a lot of performance. I have put an attachment with a print screen of my resulting graph so you can understand better.

Can you help me?

Best regards,
Paulo Mendonça

If you use a Chart, you don't have many options. If I were you, I would build it programmatically:

There is a new Graph item, you can also check it out: http://www.telerik.com/help/reporting/graphoverview.html

Hello Hadib,

I can't build it programmatically because I must use only Report Designer Q2 2012. I want to know if it's possible to hide labels in dynamic series using designer or if this is a limitation of it.

Best regards,

Hi Paulo,

The auto-generated series of the Chart cannot be styled. This shortcoming is covered by the new Graph item, thus providing you greater flexibility for dynamically creating and styling the series.
However, if you cannot upgrade to Q1 2013 (and use the Graph) and you need to use the Standalone Report Designer (not the VS one and create the Chart programmatically), there isn't a way to avoid the issues that you have faced.

Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q1 2013? You can get them from your account.
