Axis Labels

Smart Axis Labels

When the axis labels overlap with each other, you can use labelIntersectAction property in the axis, to place them smartly.

When setting labelIntersectAction as Hide

Axis Labels Positioning

By default, the axis labels can be placed at outside the axis line and this also can be placed at inside the axis line using the labelPosition property.

            public double y1;
        }

Multilevel Labels

Any number of levels of labels can be added to an axis using the multiLevelLabels property. This property can be configured using the following properties:

• Categories • Overflow • Alignment • Text style • Border

Categories

Using the categories property, you can configure the start, end, text, and maximumTextWidth of multilevel labels.

        {
            public string country;
            public double gold;
        }

Overflow

Edge Label Placement

Labels with long text at the edges of an axis may appear partially in the chart. To avoid this, use edgeLabelPlacement property in axis, which moves the label inside the chart area for better appearance or hides it.

tagHelper
labels-custom.cs
@{
   var border = new { width= 1, type= "Rectangle" , color= "red"};

}
    <ejs-chart id="container" width="50%">
        <e-chart-primaryxaxis valueType="Category" border="border">
        </e-chart-primaryxaxis>
        <e-series-collection>
            <e-series dataSource="ViewBag.dataSource" xName="country" yName="gold" type="@Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ChartSeriesType.Column" name="Product X"></e-series>
        </e-series-collection>
    </ejs-chart>
public ActionResult Index()
        {
            List<ColumnChartData> chartData = new List<ColumnChartData>
            {
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "Russia", gold=50  },
                new ColumnChartData{ country="China", gold=40 },
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "Japan", gold=70 },
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "Australia", gold=60},
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "France", gold=50 },
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "Germany", gold=40 },
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "Italy", gold=40 },
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "United States", gold=30 }
            };
            ViewBag.dataSource = chartData;
            return View();
        }
        public class ColumnChartData
        {
            public string country;
            public double gold;
        }

Customizing Specific Point

You can customize the specific text in the axis labels using axisLabelRender event.

tagHelper
custom-point.cs
<ejs-chart id="container" width="50%" axisLabelRender="axisLabelRender">
        <e-chart-primaryxaxis valueType="Category">
        </e-chart-primaryxaxis>
        <e-series-collection>
            <e-series dataSource="ViewBag.dataSource" xName="country" yName="gold" type="@Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ChartSeriesType.Column" name="Product X"></e-series>
        </e-series-collection>
    </ejs-chart>
<script>
    axisLabelRender=function(args) {
        if (args.text === 'France') {
            args.labelStyle.color = 'red';
        }
    }
</script>
public ActionResult Index()
        {
            List<ColumnChartData> chartData = new List<ColumnChartData>
            {
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "Russia", gold=50  },
                new ColumnChartData{ country="China", gold=40 },
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "Japan", gold=70 },
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "Australia", gold=60},
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "France", gold=50 },
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "Germany", gold=40 },
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "Italy", gold=40 },
                new ColumnChartData{ country= "United States", gold=30 }
            };
            ViewBag.dataSource = chartData;
            return View();
        }
        public class ColumnChartData
        {
            public string country;
            public double gold;
        }
