    Is it possible to add labels to points in a ScatterLineSeries? I've been able to add labels to CategoricalDataPoints but not ScatterDataPoints. I noticed that on there are labels for Line, Spline, Area, and SplineArea series, but not for Bar or Scatter.

    I added a custom LabelFormatting event that gets called when I use a LineSeries with CategoricalDataPoints, but it doesn't run when I use a ScatterLineSeries with ScatterDataPoints. Here's some sample code I tested (in OpenEdge) and a screenshot of my results:

    LabelFormatting method:

    METHOD PRIVATE VOID myLabelFormatting(INPUT sender AS System.Object, INPUT e AS ChartViewLabelFormattingEventArgs):
       e:LabelElement:BackColor = System.Drawing.Color:White.
       e:LabelElement:ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color:Black.
       e:LabelElement:BorderColor = System.Drawing.Color:Black.
       e:LabelElement:Font = NEW Font("Segoe Script", 12, FontStyle:Regular).
       DEFINE VARIABLE element AS CartesianLinePointElement NO-UNDO.
       MESSAGE "Casting element..." VIEW-AS ALERT-BOX.
       element = CAST(e:LabelElement:Parent, CartesianLinePointElement).
       DEFINE VARIABLE dataPoint AS ScatterDataPoint NO-UNDO.
       MESSAGE "Casting point..." VIEW-AS ALERT-BOX.
       dataPoint = CAST(element:DataPoint, ScatterDataPoint).
       e:LabelElement:Text = STRING(dataPoint:XValue) + ", " + STRING(dataPoint:YValue).


    Sample code:

    DEFINE VARIABLE lineSeries AS ScatterLineSeries NO-UNDO.
    lineSeries = NEW ScatterLineSeries().
    lineSeries:DataPoints:Add(NEW ScatterDataPoint(1, 10)).
    lineSeries:DataPoints:Add(NEW ScatterDataPoint(15, 15)).
    lineSeries:DataPoints:Add(NEW ScatterDataPoint(5, 20)).
    lineSeries:PointSize = NEW SizeF(8, 8).
    lineSeries:ShowLabels = TRUE.
    radChartView1:BackColor = System.Drawing.Color:LightGray.
    radChartView1:ShowLegend = TRUE.

    Hello, Adam,   

    In order to show labels for the ScatterLineSeries, make sure that you set the Label for each ScatterDataPoint. Please refer to the following code snippet:

    public RadForm1()
        this.radChartView1.LabelFormatting += radChartView1_LabelFormatting;
        ScatterLineSeries scatterSeries = new ScatterLineSeries();
        scatterSeries.DataPoints.Add(new ScatterDataPoint(15, 19) { Label = "15, 19" });
        scatterSeries.DataPoints.Add(new ScatterDataPoint(18, 10) { Label = "18, 10" });
        scatterSeries.DataPoints.Add(new ScatterDataPoint(13, 15) { Label = "13, 15" });
        scatterSeries.DataPoints.Add(new ScatterDataPoint(10, 8) { Label = "10, 8" });
        scatterSeries.DataPoints.Add(new ScatterDataPoint(5, 2) { Label = "5, 2" });
        scatterSeries.PointSize = new SizeF(8, 8);
        scatterSeries.ShowLabels = true;
    private void radChartView1_LabelFormatting(object sender, ChartViewLabelFormattingEventArgs e)
        e.LabelElement.ForeColor = Color.Red;

    Note that most of the forum threads are reviewed by Telerik representatives and sometimes we address the questions asked by our customers in the forums as well. However, a post in the forum doesn't guarantee you a response from the Telerik support team. Moreover, threads are handled according to license and time of posting, so if it is an urgent problem, we suggest you use a support ticket, which would be handled before a forum thread. Thank you for your understanding.

    I hope this information helps.

    Thank you! Setting the label for each point fixed my issue.
