    Hi there,

    I'm using a RadChart to create some bar graphs of the total number of projecs per project type. I'm using a group descriptor to group the data:

        <telerikCharting:GroupingSettings ShouldCreateSeriesForLastGroup="True">
                <telerikCharting:ChartGroupDescriptor Member="ProjectType"/>

    My item mappings looks like this:

        <telerik:ItemMapping FieldName="ProjectType" DataPointMember="XCategory" />
        <telerik:ItemMapping FieldName="Name" DataPointMember="YValue" AggregateFunction="Count" />

    I'm attaching a screenshot showing what this currently looks like. What I want though, is to show the percentages of each category in addition to the number of projects. I don't know ahead of time how many project types will be included in the data being graphed.

    I appreciate any help I can get with this.

    Hi Jonathan,

    Simply use the ItemLabelFormat property of the SeriesDefinition like shown below:
                  <telerik:BarSeriesDefinition ItemLabelFormat="#DATAITEM.Value %"/>
                  <telerik:ItemMapping FieldName="Title" DataPointMember="XCategory" />
                  <telerik:ItemMapping FieldName="Value2" DataPointMember="YValue" />
    The above code will just add the percentage sign to the item's value. You can use a custom or standard numeric format expression to further specify the format.

    More about expressions can be found in our Format Expressions help topic.
