    I am attempting to place a RadChart with the legend collapsed within the small content RadFluidContentControl of a tileview, but setting the ChartLegend visibility to "Collapsed" does not appear to work.  However, if I utilize the same XAML code within a usercontrol and display the usercontrol in the small content RadFluidContentControl it does collapse the legend.  Any idea how to resolve this using in-line XAML within the RadFluidContentControl rather than utilize a usercontrol for the display of the chart?

    My sample code for the specification of the tileview's content:

    <DataTemplate x:Key="ContentTemplate">
        <telerik:RadFluidContentControl ContentChangeMode="Automatic" State="Normal" NormalToSmallThreshold="250 250" NormalToLargeThreshold="500 500">
          <Grid DataContext="{Binding Source={StaticResource SampleDataSource}}">
           <telerik:RadChart x:Name="chtTrendingChart_Small" telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Windows8" ItemsSource="{Binding Collection}">
                  <telerik:ChartLegend Visibility="Collapsed" />

    Resolved the issue by modifying the code behind but still unsure as to why the visibility setting within the XAML did not work.

    Hi John,

    I am glad to hear that you have resolved the issue. However, the RadChart control has many known limitations and issues and one of those is the described issue. Therefore, we decided to create new charting components with better implementation and enhanced performance. You could read about the differences between the components in this article.
