public double Offset { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A Double value that specifies the custom label’s offset.


The custom label position on the scale is defined by Offset and ScaleCustomLabel.Value properties. The Value property sets the value near which the custom label is located.

Use the Offset property, if you need to customize the position of the custom label with respect to other elements of a scale. Note that the Offset property behavior is different for Circular scale custom labels and Linear scale custom labels.

For the Circular scale, a positive value of the Offset property moves a custom label out of the scale, while a negative value moves a custom label inside the scale towards to the center. A zero value of the Offset property means that the custom label is positioned on the edge of the Circular scale.

The following image illustrates the property behavior.


In the case of a Linear scale, increasing the Offset property’s value moves a custom label to the right, while decreasing the Offset moves it to the left.

The image below shows this behavior.
