I am trying to make a basic chart like http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/media/htmlchart-columnchart-simple-example.png

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?

Hello,

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">
    <PlotArea>
        <XAxis>
            <Items>
                <telerik:AxisItem LabelText="Q1"></telerik:AxisItem>
                <telerik:AxisItem LabelText="Q2"></telerik:AxisItem>
                <telerik:AxisItem LabelText="Q3"></telerik:AxisItem>
            </Items>
        </XAxis>
        <Series>
            <telerik:ColumnSeries Name="Wooden Table">
                <LabelsAppearance Position="OutsideEnd">
                    <ClientTemplate>
                        Value is #=value#, Category is: #=category#
                    </ClientTemplate>
                </LabelsAppearance>
                <TooltipsAppearance>
                    <ClientTemplate>
                        Value is #=value#, Category is: #=category#
                    </ClientTemplate>
                </TooltipsAppearance>
                <SeriesItems>
                    <telerik:CategorySeriesItem Y="25000"></telerik:CategorySeriesItem>
                    <telerik:CategorySeriesItem Y="12000"></telerik:CategorySeriesItem>
                    <telerik:CategorySeriesItem Y="39000"></telerik:CategorySeriesItem>
                </SeriesItems>
            </telerik:ColumnSeries>
        </Series>
    </PlotArea>
</telerik:RadHtmlChart>

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