    I would like to change the labels above my bars to reflect money.

    I tried to change the defaultlabelvalue like this: RadChart.Series[0].DefaultLabelValue = something

    I get a index out of range error.

    When i lookup the amount of series i have in my graph, it shows 0 series, but i still have data.

    How do i format the labels now?

    Hi kizza,

    Actually your chart does have series.They could be created from the design view mode or when the chart is databound, or also programmatically.  If you use a databound chart, you should first  use DataBind method and then you could access the chart series and set DefaultLabelValue property. Otherwise the chart will not recognize the series and will generate the exception which you receive.
    In order to display labels with currency you should set DefaultLabelValue to "#Y{C}" where ,"#Y" display numbers from the Y axis respectively and C is equal to Currency.


    You can also use the formatting described in this MSDN article  Standard Numeric Formats . Use curly brackets to contain the standard numeric formats

    Hope that helps.
