Labels.Format not working?


Recommended Posts

I am trying to format the X axis for a chart.  The data type coming from the DataTable is DateTime.  I tried setting what I thought were the right properties to format the data, but I always get the full datetime displayed on the axis (e.g. "6/24/2008 14:45:00").  Below is a snippet:

podChart.AxisX.Labels.Format =

AxisFormat.Date;podChart.AxisX.Labels.CustomFormat = "MMM-yy";

The documentation doesn't help since it actually refers to a LabelsFormat object which does not appear to exist any more.  Is the CustomFormat property the right one to use?  If so, is it working?  If not, what should I do?

 Also, I have tried setting these properties both before and after setting the ItemsSource for the chart (because of another forum post I saw), but it didn't seem to matter where the code was positioned.

Thank you,

Not trying to be pushy, but I need to know if this is a problem with the control or something I am doing.  I've been stuck on this problem for some time now.  If someone could at least confirm whether this is a bug or not I would greatly appreciate it.  I have a workaround I could implement, but I don't want to implement a workaround for something that doesn't require one. :(

 Thank you,

We retried both setting the AxisX properties in XAML ...


cfx:Chart x:Name="chart1" Gallery="Line" ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource bidsData}}">  <cfx:Chart.Series>   <cfx:SeriesAttributesCollection>   <cfx:SeriesAttributes BindingPath="Value" BindingPathX="Date" />   </cfx:SeriesAttributesCollection>  </cfx:Chart.Series>  <cfx:Chart.AxisX>   <cfx:Axis>   <cfx:Axis.Labels>   <cfx:AxisLabelAttributes Format="Date" CustomFormat="MMM-yy"/>   </cfx:Axis.Labels>   </cfx:Axis>   </cfx:Chart.AxisX></cfx:Chart>As well as setting the AxisX properties in code

  chart1.AxisX.Labels.Format =

AxisFormat.Date;   chart1.AxisX.Labels.CustomFormat = "MMM-yy";

Both tests worked as expected, can you check if you can duplicate this issues with our latest build? Can you create a small sample app with hardcoded data that reproduces the problem?
