    ScaleCustomElement

Remarks

A custom label is used to display a custom text and arrange it at any position on a scale. An instance of a custom label is represented by the ScaleCustomLabel object. It can be accessed as an item of the ScaleCustomLabelCollection object returned by the Scale.CustomLabels property.

The image below illustrates a custom label for the circular scale:
