How to rotate axis labels in ASP.NET Web Forms Chart?

2 mins read

ejChart provides options to rotate x axis labels to any desired angle. You can use these option for labels with long text and to avoid labels overlapping with each other. The LabelRotation API is used to rotate labels. It takes integer value as input. The following code example illustrates the above.


    <ej:Chart ID="container" runat="server">
        <PrimaryXAxis LabelRotation="45"></PrimaryXAxis>

The output of the above code example is similar to the following screenshot.

A new version of Essential Studio for ASP.NET is available. Versions prior to the release of Essential Studio 2014, Volume 2 will now be referred to as a classic version. The new ASP.NET suite is powered by Essential Studio for JavaScript providing client-side rendering of HTML 5-JavaScript controls, offering better performance, and better support for touch interactivity. The new version includes all the features of the old version, so migration is easy.

The Classic controls can be used in existing projects; however, if you are starting a new project, we recommend using the latest version of Essential Studio for ASP.NET. Although Syncfusion will continue to support all Classic Versions, we are happy to assist you in migrating to the newest edition.

For current customers, you can check out our components from the License and Downloads page. If you are new to Syncfusion, you can try our 30-day free trial to check out our other controls. If you have any queries or require clarifications, please let us know in the comments section below.

You can also contact us through our support forumsDirect-Trac, or feedback portal. We are always happy to assist you!
