    I have created the following stacked column charts (please see sample.jpg in the attachment).

    1. How can I avoid overlapping labels (top chart)
    2. How can I place each label inside the according bar panel and not above it and two labels in the top stack (bottom chart)

    Thanks for your help!

    Meanwhile I have solved issue #2 by setting the AxisMode to Extended:

    chart.PlotArea.YAxis.AxisMode =


    (Still looking for a solution for #1. In my opinion that should be solved with the AutoLayout setting. But it does not. A bug?)

    The AutoLayout property would not take into account the series items labels. It will only calculate the positions for chart title, legend, axes along with their labels and item labels and the plot area itself, but not the labels inside it. In order to let RadChart position those labels for you, please set the IntelligentLabelsEnabled property to true.
