Type Description
CustomAxisLabelCollection

A CustomAxisLabelCollection object which represents the collection of custom labels.

Remarks

The CustomLabels property provides access to the axis collection of custom labels. If this collection is empty, the default axis labels are displayed.

Examples

This example demonstrates how custom axis labels are created and customized in the Chart control.

To add a custom axis label on the chart, create a CustomAxisLabel object and add it to the CustomAxisLabelCollection returned by the Axis2D.CustomLabels property.

To show the custom label on the X-axis or Y-axis, specify an axis value that corresponds to the label position on an axis (using the CustomAxisLabel.Value property) and to its content (via the CustomAxisLabel.Content property).

You can customize custom label appearance using the Foreground, FontFamily, FontWeight, and FontStyle properties for the AxisLabel object.

For more information about custom axis labels, see the Axis Labels topic.
