    Is there a way to set the scale for the valueAxis?  For example, right now my y axis for a line chart is showing labels in intervals of 20 (up to the max 220), and its pretty crowded.  I'd like to be able to set the scale to be in increments of 50, so on the y axis I'd see 0,50,100,150, etc.

    Hello Steven,

    You could control the interval between major divisions via the majorUnit of the value axis. Also, you could configure the min and the max value of the valueAxis. For example, the scenario you are trying to implement could be achieved using the following code snippet: 
     seriesDefaults: {
        type: "line"
      valueAxis: {
        majorUnit: 50,
        max: 250,
        min: 0 

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Iliana,

    I was curious is there a way to set and arbitrary scale?  For example, my scale is 0-100, but I only want labels at 40, 70 and 90 where my plot band (really just a line) are.  See attached if it helps.

    I am afraid this scenario is not supported by Kendo UI Chart and there is no a suitable workaround I can suggest. Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Hello Shalom,

    Currently, a custom plotBands can be added to the Chart:

    The labels can be displayed only for specific values using the valueAxis.labels.template property. It can be set to a function, and the value of the label will be return if it meets certain conditions:
