I assumed I would be able to find a solution to this issue very easily, but unfortunately I haven't been able to.

I have a pie chart that I want to simply display only 2 pieces.  I have a sql command that uses the UNION command to join my two queries into one column for the chart.  That is working fine, however I do not know how to change the pie charts legend to show the 2 colors, and add custom text for each color.

I changed the LegendDisplayMode to show ItemLabels.  Also, I am trying to set the legend text by using:
Protected Sub RadChart1_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Telerik.Charting.ChartItemDataBoundEventArgs) Handles RadChart1.ItemDataBound
        e.SeriesItem.Name = "Purchases"
        e.SeriesItem.Name = "Returns"
    End Sub

This obviously only shows "Returns" on the legend, and does so twice for both slice colors.  How do I change both of them?

Hello Shawn,

To show Series Items Labels in Pie's Legend you can follow this help topic and set the LegendDisplayMode property to ItemLabels.
Use the TextBlock property of the Legend to control the default text and appearance of each Legend Item.
