This example demonstrates how to access an axis title at runtime.

To do this, cast your diagram object to the required diagram type to access its axes. Then, you can access the Axis2D.Title property.

// Cast the chart's diagram to the XYDiagram type, to access its axes.
XYDiagram diagram = (XYDiagram)chartControl1.Diagram;

// Customize the appearance of the X-axis title.
diagram.AxisX.Title.Visible = true;
diagram.AxisX.Title.Alignment = StringAlignment.Center;
diagram.AxisX.Title.Text = "X-axis Title";
diagram.AxisX.Title.TextColor = Color.Red;
diagram.AxisX.Title.Antialiasing = true;
diagram.AxisX.Title.Font = new Font("Tahoma", 14, FontStyle.Bold);

// Customize the appearance of the Y-axis title.
diagram.AxisY.Title.Visible = true;
diagram.AxisY.Title.Alignment = StringAlignment.Center;
diagram.AxisY.Title.Text = "Y-axis Title";
diagram.AxisY.Title.TextColor = Color.Blue;
diagram.AxisY.Title.Antialiasing = true;
diagram.AxisY.Title.Font = new Font("Tahoma", 14, FontStyle.Bold);
