changing from numerical to categorical axes


Recommended Posts

Hi All


Thanks in advance for the help. First I'd like to say that I'm a graphic designer and as such have been tasked with the role of making our charts look pretty. I cannot code in C# at all, not even a little bit. I'm configuring the charts using the properties menu in VS2008.


Anyhow my question probably has a very  simple solution but I've been unable to find an answer. When I create a Gannt chart the standard values on the side and the bottom are numerical. I want to put names in there. How do I do that?

Please note that Axis labels are actually considered part of the data. The labels and their distribution along the axis are calculated based on the data that is passed to the chart. Typically, the dataset bound to the chart will have a column of data that defines the labels of the axis, be it text, dates or any other numerical format. Unfortunately, it is not possible to individually set text for each axis label at design time.

It can only be done through code.

Please note however that if what you are configuring is basically just a template, if your developers pass data appropriately, the chart will automatically show the text labels on the axis.

Please let us know if you need any additional assistance,
