    I am trying to make a basic chart like

    I am able to get it to mark up the chart with the Sales numbers, but I am not able to get the chart to show "Q1", "Q2", "Q3", etc as the name of the columns.

    What do i have to do to show the column names on the chart?

    You can use the ClientTemplate functionality of the RadHtmlChart, in order to display the category of SeriesItems in labels/tooltips. For example:
    <telerik:RadHtmlChart runat="server" ID="ColumnChart" Width="800" Height="500">
                    <telerik:AxisItem LabelText="Q1"></telerik:AxisItem>
                    <telerik:AxisItem LabelText="Q2"></telerik:AxisItem>
                    <telerik:AxisItem LabelText="Q3"></telerik:AxisItem>
                <telerik:ColumnSeries Name="Wooden Table">
                    <LabelsAppearance Position="OutsideEnd">
                            Value is #=value#, Category is: #=category#
                            Value is #=value#, Category is: #=category#
                        <telerik:CategorySeriesItem Y="25000"></telerik:CategorySeriesItem>
                        <telerik:CategorySeriesItem Y="12000"></telerik:CategorySeriesItem>
                        <telerik:CategorySeriesItem Y="39000"></telerik:CategorySeriesItem>

    More information on using ClientTemplates is available in Main properties section of ClientTemplate for Series Labels and Tooltips Overview help article.
