    I am working with a RadChart as a stacked bar style and showing the DataTable below the chart which shows value percentages. However, I am using some values with large range differences and this means several of my data items are less than 1% but show as 0% in the DataTable. Is it possible to change the DataTable values to show percentages less than 1%?

    Depending on the ratio of sub 1% values, you could set AutoScale=false for the Y-axis and then set an arbitrary value for the YAxis.MaxValue that would better display the smaller values and just let the large values shoot through the roof.

    using System;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.UI;
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Configuration;
    using System.Web.Security;
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
    using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
    using Telerik.Web.UI;
    using Telerik.Charting;
    public partial class Default : System.Web.UI.Page
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (!Page.IsPostBack)
        private void LoadChart()
            ChartSeries c = new ChartSeries("Series1", ChartSeriesType.StackedBar);
            RadChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.AutoScale = false;
            RadChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.MaxValue = 25;

    See attached image for display.
