    I've got a RadChart that I'm building on the fly from a filtered binding source. It shows some values on the Y Axis and along the X Axis it shows the month number that the data corresponds to:

    For example
         1     2    3    4    5   6  7   8  9   10   11   12

    Where 1 = january and so on.

    Because I am not binding this to a datasource, but I am building the series and data on the fly, I cannot use the



    .RadChart.PlotArea.XAxis.DataLabelsColumn as far as I know.

    However, I want to replace the X Axis labels with meaningful names I.e Jan Feb Mar etc...

    I have tried adding this in during the loop and the labels show, but once the labels show, the data doesn't.

    Please can you advise an easy way to get the X Axis labels to be set to a custom value

    Ok, got it. Realised I needed to not only give the label text, but a value which is the same as the month I am trying to plot.

                'X Axis Custom Labels. Add in Jan - Dec  
                For i As Integer = 1 To 12  
                    Dim item As New ChartAxisItem(GetMonthName(i))  
                    item.Value = i

    Hi All,
    I am facing same problem for custom label (axis label)

    I set (x,y) values for series as below
    Code is in C#

    ChartSeries series = new ChartSeries();
    series.Type = ChartSeriesType.Line;

     for (int iCnt = 0; iCnt < 6; iCnt++)
                        series.Items.Add(new ChartSeriesItem(arrdXData[iCnt], arrdYData[iCnt]));
                        // Here some code which set custom label for x-axis instead of 1,2,3...

    The below solution not work for me.

    For i As Integer = 1 To 12  
                    Dim item As New ChartAxisItem(GetMonthName(i))  
                    item.Value = i  


    Thanks & Regards
