    Hello Cory,

    Your axis labels are overlapped because there is not enough space for them to be fully displayed. By default the AutoScale property is set to True. Therefore the axis Step value is calculated depending on the data range and the available space. In order to set your custom Step that will prevent your lables from overlapping you should set the AutoScale to False, then you need to define the axis MinValue and MaxValue. It would look like this:

    RadChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.AutoScale = false;
    RadChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.MinValue = 0;
    RadChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.MaxValue = 20000;
    RadChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.Step = 4000;

    Alternatively if you don't want to change the AutoScale property, you could increase your chart's size so there would be enough space for the labels to be displayed.

    Hope that helps.
