I am trying to make space for the legend, it put the width to 700 but it extends the plot area when I set a width to it it has no effect






<Appearance Dimensions-Width="300">



<FillStyle FillType="Solid" MainColor="White"></FillStyle>



<Border Color="130, 130, 130" />







How do I resolve this

Hello Michel,

There are several lays you can achieve that.

The easiest way you could go is to simply set the AutoLayout property of RadChart to true. This will make all the chart elements to not overlap each other.
Then set the LegendPosition to Right like this:
this.RadChart1.Legend.Appearance.Position.AlignedPosition = Telerik.Charting.Styles.AlignedPositions.Right;

As another approach - the Legend.Appearance.ItemTextAppearance.MaxLength property defines the number of characters to be shown before the legend item text gets trimmed. And in case the legend item text is longer than the specified number, this (...) sign is shown.

For example:
chart.AutoLayout = true;  
chart.Legend.Appearance.ItemTextAppearance.MaxLength = 20;
