public int MaxLineCount { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

An integer value which is the number of text lines. Should be greater than or equal to 0 and less than or equal to 20.


When the width of axis labels is limited by the AxisLabel.MaxWidth property value or if an axis label’s text contains new line characters, its text is split across multiple lines. In this case, the MaxLineCount property helps you control the number of text lines allowed when axis labels are too lengthy.

Note that if a label’s length exceeds the limit defined by the MaxLineCount property, the last line of text will be cut off by an ellipsis. To force an axis label to fully display its contents, without regard to the label’s size, set the MaxLineCount property to 0.

The following images demonstrate how these properties work.
