    Hi Telerik Team,

    I am using Telerik Radchart. How to remove a repeated Y-axis value? Please see the attached file. Value return in Y-axis value 1. But it is repeated in chart. I don't want this type. In case I will check another condition means like (Value return of 1500) It will work fine like (returns 500, 1000, 1500). I want solution for when value returns 1 means that problem need to resolve.

    Please find attached file.

    Hi Palaniappan,

    What you are observing is caused by the YAxis labels format string, which rounds the values to integers. In your case the labels most probably correspond to 1.1, 1.0, 0.9, 0.8, 0.7, 0.6 and 0.5. There are several ways that you can approach the problem:
    • You can change the format string to always display the decimal part of the numbers, like this:
      this.chart.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.ValueFormat = ChartValueFormat.Number;
    • Depending on what information you are trying to visualize, you can use different views (separately configured RadCharts), or
    • You can programmatically change the control settings similar to this:
      var data = this.chart.DataSource as List<BusinessObject>;
      double max = data.Max(item => item.Value);
      if (max > 10.0)
          this.chart.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.ValueFormat =
          this.chart.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.CustomFormat = "F2";
          this.chart.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.ValueFormat =

    I hope this helps.
