    I am currently working on RadChart, and we use StackColumns a lot.  It's been great for the most part, however, there are times when in our data, one of the values is very small relative to others.  This results in it's number label colliding with another one.  

    Has anyone out there encountered this same problem and what was your approach?  My initial solution was to programmatically move tiny-value-items to another location, say the right of the data item.  But this still isn't good enough when you have several consecutive tiny values stacked up together.  They would all collide to the right this time.

    Any thoughts/inputs?  Thanks in advance!

    Hi Dino,

    Thanks for contacting us.

    The RadChart's Intelligent Labels feature can be helpful in situations like that. Another possible way to tackle the problem is to disable the chart series item labels altogether and use RadChart's Data Table. You may also take advantage of RadGrid's rich client-side functionality.

    I hope this was helpful. Let us know if you have any further questions.
