    I'm using v2015.1.331.40 and if the series I feed my pie chart has 0 for all values AND I have ShowSmartLables = true, then my code just hangs when it tries to render the chart. 


    private static void ThisChartHangs()
                Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadChartView chart = null;

                    chart = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadChartView();
                    chart.AreaType = Telerik.WinControls.UI.ChartAreaType.Pie;

                    chart.Width = 360;
                    chart.Height = 360;
                    chart.ShowSmartLabels = true;

                    var series = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.PieSeries();
                    for (int x = 0; x < 8; x++)
                        series.DataPoints.Add(new Telerik.Charting.PieDataPoint(0.0, "Type " + x.ToString()));


                    using (var bmp = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(chart.ClientSize.Width, chart.ClientSize.Height))
                        chart.DrawToBitmap(bmp, chart.Bounds);

                        using (var stream = new System.IO.FileStream(@"c:\temp\NeverRenders.png", System.IO.FileMode.Create, System.IO.FileAccess.Write))
                            bmp.Save(stream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png);
                catch (Exception ex)
                    if (chart != null)
                        foreach (var series in chart.Series)

    Hello Joshua,

    Thank you for writing.

    Indeed this appears to be an issue within the rendering mechanism of RadChartView. I have logged it in our feedback portal. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your vote/comment to it on the following link - feedback item. I have also updated your Telerik points.

    We are going to need additional time to completely investigate the issue and come up with a solution how such a scenario should be handled. For the time being you would need to set the ShowSmartLabels property to false if all of your data points have zero as value.

    I hope this helps. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.
