    Hello all together,

    I'm using the RadCartesian chart with BarSeries on Samsung Galaxy Tab with Android (9.0) and iPad with iOS (12.1) and Telerik UI for Xamarin (v2019.1.318.1). On Android the chart looks very stylish, on iOS not. On iOS the bars are not centered, thinner than on Android and the labels don't look good. How can I archive the Android look on iOS? I'm not using Telerik themes for styling.


    Please have a look at "Android_chart.png" and "iOS_chart.png". The arrows 1. / 2. / 3. in iOS png show to not centered bars and the labels.


    Kind regards,

    Hello Martin,

    Thank you for sending the screenshots.

    Indeed, RadChart looks differently on Android and iOS as the Xamarin.Forms Chart component wraps the native Android and iOS charts respectively, which do not have a 100% appearance-matching across platforms.

    So, you could modify the look & feel of the iOS Chart through a custom renderer. Please check below what customizations are available for the Series Label and BarSeries:
    Point Labels: Customizations
    Configure visual appearance of bar series

    Let me know if I can assist with anything else.

    Progress Telerik
