I am trying to format the date on my Y-axis label so it shows "August, 2013"  I have set the axis LabelFormat property to {0:Y} but it still displays the full date time.  See attached picture.  
Also the data point label for March extends beyond the right side of the graph.  Is there a way to shrink the graph so the label always appears within the border of the graph?

//
// cartesianCoordinateSystem1
//
this.cartesianCoordinateSystem1.Name = "cartesianCoordinateSystem1";
this.cartesianCoordinateSystem1.XAxis = this.graphAxis1;
this.cartesianCoordinateSystem1.YAxis = this.graphAxis2;
//
// graphAxis1
//
this.graphAxis1.LabelFormat = "{0:C0}";
this.graphAxis1.MajorGridLineStyle.LineColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGray;
this.graphAxis1.MajorGridLineStyle.LineWidth = Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.Unit.Pixel(1D);
this.graphAxis1.MinorGridLineStyle.LineColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGray;
this.graphAxis1.MinorGridLineStyle.LineWidth = Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.Unit.Pixel(1D);
this.graphAxis1.MinorGridLineStyle.Visible = false;
this.graphAxis1.Name = "graphAxis1";
this.graphAxis1.Scale = numericalScale1;
//
// graphAxis2
//
this.graphAxis2.LabelFormat = "{0:Y}";
this.graphAxis2.MajorGridLineStyle.LineColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGray;
this.graphAxis2.MajorGridLineStyle.LineWidth = Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.Unit.Pixel(1D);
this.graphAxis2.MinorGridLineStyle.LineColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGray;
this.graphAxis2.MinorGridLineStyle.LineWidth = Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.Unit.Pixel(1D);
this.graphAxis2.MinorGridLineStyle.Visible = false;
this.graphAxis2.Name = "graphAxis2";
this.graphAxis2.Scale = categoryScale1;


Thank you

Hi Thomas,

The reason is that you are using CategoryScale and labels are treated as strings instead of DateTime. Select the labels and change the scale to DatetimeScale. Then set the series Data.X property to the DateTime field and labels will be formatted as expected.

About the data point label rendered outside the Graph item, try to set the Scale.Maximum of the scale to a greater value. Other approach we can suggest you is to use other option of the DataPointLabelAlignment enumeration, e.g. Center.

I hope this helps.

Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q2 2013? You can get them from your account.
