[solved] Axis Labels - rotate them!
« on: September 14, 2022, 11:04:25 am »
I am new to TAChart and not sure, if I put the terms correctly.
my try:

The x-axes has one point in the chart-canvas and as ax-text e.g.: "10.10.2020".
Is it possible to rotate this text for 45 degrees, so that the texts to each point do not overlap?

Set Chart.BottomAxis.Marks.LabelFont.Orientation to 450 (which is the rotation angle in tenths of a degree; the sign follows the mathematical convention of counter-clockwise rotation). By default the orientation is around the center of the label which looks a bit strange to me; but - I think since Laz2.0 - you can select the rotation center in the equally named property of the Axis.Marks.

Alternatively to rotation you could also write the label in two lines by inserting a line-break in the date/time formatstring before the yyyy symbol.
