    Is it possible to have a label with each pie chart to indicate which series it represents? I have to display two pie charts in one graph, and it will not be obvious to the user which pie chart represents what data. So I need to add a label (above or beneath) each pie chart with (for example) the series name, or preferably a custom title.
    Trying to add items to the X or Y axis does not seem to work, since the axes are not displayed as soon as I set the type of each series to pie. And I could not find a label on the series either.
    Is there a way to do this? Thanks...

    Well, I ave the same problem.
    It is necessary to add labels to each Pie on my Chart. As I understand I can use only Legend tag for showing any labels (Items or Series). Legend now is using for showing Items Name. How can I present Series Name for each Pie?

    Thanks for support!

    Hello Guys,

    You can simply use two ChartTitles above each ChartArea containing a pie series.

    I am also using multiple pie charts in a single PlotArea. The data is set as three columns, one for the label (legend is set to label) and the other two are the first and second series. Could you elaborate on how to add a title to each of the charts so that they are each labeled seperately? I am not able to see how to allow a seperate ChartTitle for each series in a single PlotArea. Thank you.

    Hello Jehremie Woods,

    It appears I have mistook your question for RadChart for Silverlight where this feature is available. Unfortunately, RadChart for ASP.NET does not support this. Please, accept my sincere apologies for this inconvenience.

    The only work-around that comes to my mind would be to consider rendering the titles as HTML positioned absolutely over the correct locations for the titles.

    Best wishes,
