How can I change X-Axis labels height?


Recommended Posts

As you can see at the image below X-Axis labels occupy more than 50% of image space. I'm wondering is it possible to limit X-Axis labels height by 50 pixels for example?

  DataTable table = new DataTable();

  table.Columns.Add("x", typeof(int));
  table.Columns.Add("y", typeof(string));

  DataRow row = table.NewRow();
  row["x"] = 0;
  row["y"] = "verylongstringverylongstringverylongstring";
  row = table.NewRow();
  row["x"] = 1;
  row["y"] = "verylongstringverylongstringverylongstring";
  row = table.NewRow();
  row["x"] = 4;
  row["y"] = "verylongstringverylongstringverylongstring";

  Chart1.DataSourceSettings.Fields.Add(new ChartFX.WebForms.FieldMap("x", ChartFX.WebForms.FieldUsage.Value));
  Chart1.DataSourceSettings.Fields.Add(new ChartFX.WebForms.FieldMap("y", ChartFX.WebForms.FieldUsage.Label));

  Chart1.DataSource = table;

  Chart1.PlotAreaMargin.Bottom = 20;
  Chart1.PlotAreaMargin.Left = 20;
  Chart1.PlotAreaMargin.Right = 20;
  Chart1.PlotAreaMargin.Top = 20;

 I might have found something that could help you. There is a property in the Axis class called MaxSizePercentage. It will limit the space taken by the axis as a percentage, but in a brute way. It will clip the begining of the string. To avoid that you could force the clipping of the end of the string using LabelTrimming.

Chart1.AxisX.MaxSizePercentage = 30;Chart1.AxisX.LabelTrimming = System.Drawing.StringTrimming.EllipsisWord;
