I'm trying to format numbers in the Y axis to 1 decimal.  If I do:
 RadChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.ValueFormat = ChartValueFormat.None;
 RadChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.CustomFormat = "##.0";
it works(it shows a label with a value of 39.00 as 39.0)

 If I do:
 RadChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.ValueFormat = ChartValueFormat.Number;
RadChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.CustomFormat = "##.0";
it doesn't work (it shows a label with a value of 39.00 as 39.00)

but in the X axis this special custom format works fine (2 lines with the right custom format):
 RadChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.ValueFormat = ChartValueFormat.LongDate;
RadChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.Appearance.CustomFormat = "HH:mm\nM/dd";
is the ChartvalueFormat.None required for CustomFormats in the Y axis?
Thanks

Hi George,

Both X and Y axes work the same way. When ValueFormat is numeric (i.e. one of Currency, Scientific, General, Number, Percent) CustomFormat is ignored. You can use None to apply custom numeric format. However, when ValueFormat is DateTime-related, CustomFormat is respected and this allows you to specify your own formatting for DateTime values.
