    Using the latest version of the controls.

    Is there a way to create a multi-line title?

    I've tried the following in the chart.PreRender event, but have not had success:

    RadChart1.ChartTitle.TextBlock.Text = "Line1 " & System.Environment.NewLine & "Line2" 
    RadChart1.ChartTitle.TextBlock.Text = "Line1  Line2" 
    RadChart1.ChartTitle.TextBlock.Text = "Line1 <br/> Line2"

    Hello Dean,

    The first line of code you have provided is valid and works fine for me. Just one note -- can you confirm it is used in PreRender event handler and not in PrePaint? The PrePaint event is fired when the chart layout calculation has been already completed. That is -- the chart title size is calculated according to its current content, so changing it at this point will not be reflected. So you might experience this issue with PrePaint, but it should be fine in PreRender.

    I seem to be having the same issue using the line below does absolutely nothing. It simply ignores the System.Environment.Newline
    It is a straight cut and paste from the code above.

    I have tried everything I can possibly find, and it simply ignores any attempt to return the line. 

    Should it really be this difficult to just add a sub title????

     Protected Sub RadChart1_PreRender(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles RadChart1.PreRender

            RadChart1.ChartTitle.TextBlock.Text = "Line1 " & System.Environment.NewLine & "Line2"
        End Sub
