Hi

I'm attempting to position my labels for marked zones outside the PlotArea, but I can't see how to do it. Basically my problem is the labels get obscured by the first bar and as they get printed behind the bar I can't see them (if the bar is smaller I can see the labels - however, the first bar always has to be the largest so I'll never see the labels!)

Can I position the labels outside the PlotArea? Alternatively, is there a way to increase the padding between the edge of the PlotArea and the first bar in order for me to see the labels?

Thanks
Rob

Hi Rob ,

Unfortunately, RadChart does not allow placing the labels outside the plot area. You can add additional space by adding an additional X axis item. You can set the AutoScale property to false and set MinValue, MaxValue and Step properties. Ex MinValue = 1, MaxValue=itemsCount + 1, Step=1.

Hi Ves,

I tried your suggestion and I could see the empty item but the Labels didn't appear. I'm not sure if it was something I did wrong, but I ended up solving my problem by creating TextBoxes and placing them manually outside the PlotArea.

Thanks

Rob
