BarSeries series = new BarSeries();                 
series.CategoryBinding = new PropertyNameDataPointBinding() { PropertyName = "Name" };                 
series.ValueBinding = new PropertyNameDataPointBinding() { PropertyName = "Value" };                 
series.ShowLabels = true;                 
series.ItemsSource = points;

My ItemsSource is just a list of my datapoint class.
How do I set the label for each point?
I can do it via xaml easy enough. How about code?

<telerik:CategoricalDataPoint Category="1" Value="0.05" Label="Some Point Specific Text"> 

I tried and failed with
             <telerik:BarSeries.LabelDefinitions > 
                    <telerik:ChartSeriesLabelDefinition >
                                    <TextBlock Text="{Binding}"></TextBlock>
                                         <Binding RelativeSource="{RelativeSource FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type telerik:BarSeries}}"

Hi David,

Currently it is not possible to have access to the DataItem from the label template. I have discussed this with our developers and we think that it will be of great help to have access to both the value and the data item. This is why I have logged this as a feature request here in our PITS where you can vote for the feature and track its status.

We are sorry for the inconvenience. I have updated your Telerik points as a thank you for pointing this issue to us and helping us improve our products.
