Examples

The following example demonstrates how to change the appearance of axis labels, for example, to rotate them by a specific angle. To accomplish this, it is necessary to create a DataTemplate that specifies the appearance of axis labels, and add it to a window's resources collection. Then, this template can be applied to an axis label via its ChartTextElement.ElementTemplate property.

<Window x:Class="RotatedAxisXLabels.Window1" 
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" 
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" 
        xmlns:dxc="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/charts" 
        Title="Rotated AxisX Labels" Height="300" Width="400">

    <Window.Resources>
        <DataTemplate x:Key="AxisXLabelTemplate">
            <ContentPresenter Content="{Binding Path=Content}">
                <ContentPresenter.LayoutTransform>
                    <RotateTransform Angle="-90" />
                </ContentPresenter.LayoutTransform>
            </ContentPresenter>
        </DataTemplate>
    </Window.Resources>
