FIX: DataFormatString Range Scaling
Under the standard definition of data format strings, range scaling can be applied (i.e. divide by 1000) using , prefixing the implied or explicit decimal place.
e.g. DataFormatString="{0:#,#,}" will display 3000000 as 3,000

This works on RadPivotGrid correctly, but RadHTMLChart does not work either on data labels, axis labels, or pretty much anywhere else. Apparently a problem with kendo.format(), which does not do this as per documentation for DataFormatString

N.B. This is commonly used in finance presentations to globally present in $thousands.

Hi Phil,

The item did not get any votes during the past years and I have to decline it. My advice is to use this solution for your inquiry:


I can also suggest that you use the following template in order to achieve the desired effect:
<telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server"></telerik:RadScriptManager>
    function pageLoad() {
        var chart = $find("<%=RadHtmlChart1.ClientID%>");
        chart._chartObject.options.valueAxis.labels.template = "#=value / 1000# K";
<telerik:RadHtmlChart runat="server" ID="RadHtmlChart1" Width="600px" Height="400px">
            <telerik:ColumnSeries Name="Product 1">
                    <telerik:CategorySeriesItem Y="15000" />
                    <telerik:CategorySeriesItem Y="23000" />
                    <telerik:CategorySeriesItem Y="10000" />
                <telerik:AxisItem LabelText="1" />
                <telerik:AxisItem LabelText="2" />
                <telerik:AxisItem LabelText="3" />
