Remarks

The Chart Control generates axis labels based on series data. You can also create custom axis labels to display custom text. The following help topic describes how to configure axis labels: Axis Labels.

Use the AxisBase.Label property to access an instance of the AxisLabel class.

Examples

You can specify label properties or define a data template for axis labels to change their appearance.

This example specifies the following properties for X-axis labels: Angle, Background, FontSize, FontStyle, FontWeight, Foreground, and TextPattern.

The example defines a data template for Y-axis labels. Assign this template to the ElementTemplate property to apply it to labels.
