Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v21.1.dll


public event CustomizeXAxisLabelsEventHandler PivotChartingCustomizeXAxisLabels

Event Data

The PivotChartingCustomizeXAxisLabels event's data class is CustomizeXAxisLabelsEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Axis Gets the X-axis, whose labels are being customized.
Staggered Specifies whether the X-axis labels should be staggered.


When an XRPivotGrid is assigned to the chart’s XRChart.DataSource property and the PivotGridDataSourceOptions.AutoLayoutSettingsEnabled property is enabled, the AxisLabel.Staggered property is defined automatically, and cannot be customized at design time.

Handle the PivotChartingCustomizeXAxisLabels event, to manually adjust this option (with the CustomizeXAxisLabelsEventArgs.Staggered property). To access the X-axis, use the CustomizeXAxisLabelsEventArgs.Axis property.


The X-axis’ labels are staggered if the axis scale type is Qualitative or DateTime (except for Year). And, the label direction is made parallel to that of the axis (i.e., the AxisLabel.Angle is 0 if the diagram is not rotated, and the AxisLabel.Angle is 90 when the diagram is rotated). In addition, the label text is affected by the measurement unit specified (e.g., Year, Month, or Day), and the superfluous labels are hidden.
