Type Description

Use the Font property to set font attributes for the text displayed in the following chart elements:

  • chart title defined by the ChartTitle object which can be accessed via the ChartObject.Title property;
  • axis title whose display settings are defined by the ChartTitleOptions object accessible via the Axis.Title property;
  • tick-mark labels displayed on the axis (to change font settings for the tick-mark labels, use the Font property of the Axis object);
  • data labels whose options are provided by the DataLabelOptions interface accessible via the ChartView.DataLabels property;
