Hi Telerik Team,

Can you please advise me how to position these labels on top of the Y-Axis in a way so as they do not overlap each other when the corresponding value of the Y-Axis is too small. See the screenshot for details.

Please note that I am building the chart programatically and setting the AutoLayout to True.

Thank you!
Navnit

Hi Navnit,

Set the IntelligentLabelsEnabled property of the chart to True, which would guarantee that the labels would not overlap with each other. Additionally if you want to make it absolutely clear which label is for which series item, you can enable label connectors by setting the ShowLabelConnectors property of the chart series to True. I've attached a sample report that shows both settings at hand, so give it a spin and let us know how it goes.

Cool !
Works like a charm. Did not know it would have been that easy. Nice one Telerik Team.

The connectors are also a good way to make it clear as you pointed out. But to be honest, it kind of spoil the overall look of the chart and also sometimes, if the labels are all aligned exactly on top of each other, a vertical line is being drawn from the 1st label to the last one, which makes it very hard to comprehend. See screenshot.

Thanks again..
Kind Regards,
Navnit

Hi Navnit,

Yes in the cases where the IntelligentLabels has placed them on top of each other, it does not make sense to enable the connectors. Usually if you have only a couple of items, their labels would be aligner in a way so that you can distinguish the item to which the label belongs to. The problem comes with the higher number of items.

Hi Steve,
it is possible to set the position of the labels to the center of the bars? When I set the aligned position of the labels to "center" their position is only at the top-center of the bar. 

Edit: How you can see, the labels lie sometimes/partially outside the plot area, althogh i set AutoLayout && IntelligentLables to true. is there a solution how to show all labels in the plot area.

Regards,
Thomas

Hello Thomas,

It might be better to turn off the IntelligentLabelsEnabled property for such setup. About setting the position to center of the bars, use the following properties:

chartSeries1.Appearance.LabelAppearance.LabelLocation = Telerik.Reporting.Charting.Styles.StyleSeriesItemLabel.ItemLabelLocation.Inside;
chartSeries1.Appearance.LabelAppearance.Position.AlignedPosition = Telerik.Reporting.Charting.Styles.AlignedPositions.Center; chartSeries1.Appearance.LabelAppearance.Position.Auto = false;

All the best,
Steve

Hi Telerik Team, 

I cannot find IntelligentLabelsEnabled and ShowLabelConnectors from the Xamarin.iOS Doc anymore. Are there any replacement properties that handle the label overlapping issue? 

Please let me know if there is a work around that you would recommend.

Thanks,
Kyle

Hi Kyle,

This is Telerik Reporting forum and the discussion is about the old Reporting Chart item, that is now replaced by the Reporting Graph item. The Graph item uses internal algorithms for positioning labels, where you can additionally affect label connectors - How to: Setup a Pie Chart With No Overlapping Labels.

If you are using other components, not Telerik Reporting, please open a support ticket or forum thread with selected product of interest. This guarantees your inquiry will be addressed by the team handling the product.

Regards,
Stef
