Hi,

I am trying to display vertical axis labels as formatted. I want to display numbers ( thounds, billions and millions ) like as 12K, 2M, 3B. I have written a number converter. But the problem is; which property should be used for binding ?

There is not a property like as Label . So, what do you suggest me to apply my converter for labelformat ??

  <telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis>
                  <telerikChart:NumericalAxis x:Name="VerticalAxis"
                                              LabelFormat="{Binding ????, Converter={StaticResource NumberConverter}}"
                                              BindingContext="{TemplateBinding BindingContext}"
                                              Minimum="{Binding MinValue}"
                                              Maximum="{Binding MaxValue}"/>
  </telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis>

Thanks in advance,

Hi irem,

LabelFormat can only be statically set -- it would be the same for all the labels and if a converter is added as you have shown, it would not be utilized to format each label, but it would act as a regular value converter -- it should return a string value to be used as label format.

Hi Ves,

Thanks for your response. But I could not understand the solution of my problem clearly. Can I display the numbers as formatted like as 12K, 2M, 5B on the vertical axis? My NumberConverter returns string value, but the problem is which property should be used for binding ?? 

Thanks,

Hi irem,

It is not possible to have separate formatting for each label i.e. you cannot plug a formatter, which would provide a different format for each individual label.
