    In all the examples I've seen for this, the labels for the X Axis tickpoints are applied in the the code behind file (usually in a loop statement).  I'd rather use a binding XAML but I'm having trouble getting the XAML syntax correct for my radchart control. 

    For instance, in a collection with two fields, statename, and population, I'd like the XAxis tickpoint labels to be the statenames.  In my mind it would be something like:
    <telerik:TickPoint Label="{Binding statename}"></telerik:TickPoint>                                 

    But I always get this error: Set property 'Telerik.Windows.Controls.Charting.BaseFormattableData.Label' threw an exception. [Line: 63 Position: 62]

    Anybody able to see what I'm doing wrong?

    Hello Chet,

    Check this help topic here to get you started with creating categorical charts -- basically you need to bind your business object StateName field to DataPointMember.XCategory when describing the series mapping.
