    Hello Telerik!

    I have following xaml code:
    <UserControl x:Class="SilverlightApplication8.CategoryBarZoom"
        mc:Ignorable="d" xmlns:telerik="http://schemas.telerik.com/2008/xaml/presentation" d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="400">
        <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
            <telerik:RadChart x:Name="RadChart1"></telerik:RadChart>

    and c# code:
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Windows;
    using System.Windows.Controls;
    using Telerik.Windows.Controls;
    using Telerik.Windows.Controls.Charting;
    namespace SilverlightApplication8
        public partial class CategoryBarZoom
            public CategoryBarZoom()
                this.Loaded += new RoutedEventHandler(CategoryBarZoom_Loaded);
            void CategoryBarZoom_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
                RadChart1.DefaultView.ChartArea.ZoomScrollSettingsX.ScrollMode = ScrollMode.ScrollAndZoom;
                RadChart1.ItemsSource = new List<MyData>() {
                    new MyData("Name1", 0),
                    new MyData("Name2", 15),
                    new MyData("Name3", 0),
                    new MyData("Name4", 0),
                    new MyData("Name5", 5),
                    new MyData("Name6", 35),
                    new MyData("Name7", 5),
                    new MyData("Name8", 25),
                    new MyData("Name9", 5),
                    new MyData("Name10", 25),
                    new MyData("Name11", 5)
            private void SetMappings(RadChart chart)
                SeriesMapping seriesMapping = new SeriesMapping();
                seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition = new BarSeriesDefinition();
                (seriesMapping.SeriesDefinition as BarSeriesDefinition).LabelSettings.ShowZeroValueLabels = true;
                ItemMapping itemMapping = new ItemMapping();
                itemMapping.DataPointMember = DataPointMember.YValue;
                itemMapping.FieldName = "Value";
                itemMapping = new ItemMapping();
                itemMapping.DataPointMember = DataPointMember.XCategory;
                itemMapping.FieldName = "Name";
        public class MyData
            public double Value { get; set; }
            public string Name { get; set; }
            public MyData(string name, double value)
                this.Name = name;
                this.Value = value;

    My problem is the next: how I can display zero value label when I use BarSeriesDefinition?
    I tried to use property ShowZeroValueLabels for BarSeriesDefinition, but this didn't resolved my problem. ShowZeroValueLabels property works fine for HorizontalBarSeriesDefinition, but for BarSeriesDefinition I can't display label for item when it has zero value.

    Could You help me please resolve my problem: display label for item with "0" value?

    Please help me,

    Hello Volodya Bychko,

    We are aware of this issue. Currently the zero value labels are positioned below the X axis, if you extend the Y axis range to a negative number they would be visible.Our developers have already addressed this limitation and as of our official 2010.Q3 release, scheduled for mid-November, the zero value labels would be correctly positioned above the X axis.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
