    Hi elu,

    Since you have many datapoints on your chart the XAxis is trying to visualize Label for each XValue you have. You can control the label step of the XAxis by using LabelStep property. It specifies the value indicating that only one out of n-axis labels should be visible, where n is the value of the property. For example if you want label on every 4 steps you can do this:

    RadChart1.PlotArea.XAxis.LabelStep = 2;

    Best wishes,
