Splitting point labels


Recommended Posts

It is possible to split a string and show it as a point label. Below is a code snippet showing this:

string myLabel = "Intra\nSector";

 Chart1.Point[0, 0].Tag = myLabel;

 Chart1.PointLabelMask = "%L";

 Chart1.PointLabels = true;

You can search the ChartFX Samples and Resource Center (Documentation installed with the product) for more information on the PointLabelMask property. Basically, you will need to retrieve the label from your dataset, to split it you can use the newline character (\n), and then assign it to the tag property. The %L is used to show the value of the tag property, respectively.

That line should work as expected. I just tried it myself and it changed the legend for that series. Are you displaying the DataEditor or the SerLegBox? If not, please do so and you will see the changed text displayed. This is what I did:

Chart1.Series[0].Legend = "Series 1";

Chart1.SerLegBox = true;
